28-04-2017 18:00 BST - Banvit Bandirma v AS Monaco - Champions League Betting Tips

The FIBA Champions League Final Four, taking place in Tenerife, gets underway on Friday evening as Banvit take on AS Monaco. You would instinctively say that both of these teams have enjoyed a strong season so far but when it gets to the Final Four of any basketball tournament, that is likely to be the case. Both teams know that they will be back in action on Sunday but there is a massive difference between playing in a third and fourth playoff match and playing for the championship.

Honours are even in the head to head clashes between the two sides this season.

  • Banvit 79 – AS Monaco 65
  • AS Monaco 65 – Banvit 63

The Turkish team took first blood when the sides clashed in November of 2016, and the game finished in a 14 point victory for the home team on that occasion. However, the two sides met in early January of this year and while it was a much closer game, Monaco prevailed on that occasion, taking the game by 2 points. This means both teams have the knowledge and confidence of beating their opponent but with this FIBA Champions League Final Four game taking place in Tenerife, there is no home court advantage to have an impact on the outcome of the game.

Both teams have a good chance of success in the FIBA Champions League

Both teams have lifted silverware so far this season. Banvit triumphed in the Turkish Cup while Monaco retained the Disneyland Paris Leaders Cup. Both teams have also battled back from adversity with Banvit coming back from behind in both legs of their quarter-final tie against MHP RIESEN and Monaco trailed AEK Athens after the first leg of their Round of 16 match. This means that even if a team is behind, they aren’t going to give up until the final buzzer.

Jordan Theodore has averaged 15.9 points per game for Banvit so far this season and he is likely to be the key player for the Turkish side in this clash. Dee Bost has chipped in with an average of 12.9 points per game for the French side.
