28/10/2016 18:00 BST – Zalgiris Kaunas v Maccabi Fox Tel Aviv – Euroleague Betting Tips

Euroleague Predictions – Zalgiris Kaunas v Maccabi Fox Tel AvivBoth of these teams hold a 1-2 record coming into this game but this is a clash between two big European sides that have faced each other on plenty of occasions. In fact, the sides have clashed on 18 teams and it is the Israelis who hold the upper hand. This is because they have a 14-4 record over the Lithuanian side, but history can count for very little when teams meet in the modern day Euroleague.

The hosts have won their previous home game this season and they’ll be hoping that they can repeat this trick once again. Sarunas Jasikevicius, the head coach of Zalgiris, knows all about the Israeli side as he led them to Euroleague glory back in 2004 and in 2005. Again, that is history that counts for very little in this game but you can bet that he’ll be keen to lead his current side to victory over his former employers. Brock Motum has been in good form this season, averaging 15 points per game, and the home fans will be keen for him to have a positive impact on this match. Leo Westermann has also had a big role to play for Kaunas and he has averaged 13 points per game and an average of 3.7 assists per game.

The Israelis will be keen to grab an away win

The away side is currently 0-1 on the road this season and they’ll view this as an opportunity to balance that out in this game. One player who will be looking to silence the home crowd will be Sonny Weems, who of course played for Zalgiris a few seasons ago. Weems has averaged 19 points per game, making him the player that is most likely to do the damage for the away side in this clash. Mind you, Andrew Goudelock has also been in good form this week with an average of 18.3 points per game, so it would be wrong for the hosts to focus all of their attention on their former player.

The bookies are finding it difficult to split these teams so take Zalgiris Kaunas at +1, which is on offer at odds of 1.90. If you’re looking for the Over/Under market, go UNDER 161.5 which is provided at odds of 1.90Bet Now!
