29-12-2016 20:00 BST - Olympiacos Piraeus v Fenerbahce Istanbul - Euroleague Betting Tips
Both of these teams hold a 9-5 record heading into this Thursday night Euroleague clash and there is a battle for second place. The hosts hold the edge in the games between these sides over the last twenty years but Fenerbahce come into this clash knowing that they defeated the reigning Euroleague champions in their most recent game. This could be an exciting and physical game between two sides desperate to win.
It has been an up and down season so far for the Greek side. They have already been defeated at home twice this season and they lost out to Brose Bamberg by 14 points last week. When you consider Olympiacos held a four-game winning streak before heading to Germany to take on one of the lesser lights of the Euroleague, the manner and margin of defeat was a bit of a surprise. The team has the fourth-best defence in the league, with an average of 75.1 points allowed per game, but it is the attacking trio that is probably most important. Vassilis Spanoulis has an average of 13.7 points per game, Georgios Printesiz offers an average of 12.2 points per game and Matt Lojeski has provided an average of 10.9 points per game this season for the Greek side.

Fenerbahce Istanbul enjoyed a brilliant Euroleague win last week
The big overtime win for Fenerbahce against CSKA Moscow last week earned some revenge after last season’s Euroleague title game loss but it may also have reignited the Turkish side’s season. This is a team who has been up and down of late but one player who has been very strong is Ekpe Udoh. Udoh has provided an average of 12.2 points per game, an average of 8 rebounds per game and he has even chipped in with an average of 2 blocks per game. If Udoh hits form on Thursday night, the Istanbul side could be looking at another big week.
It is looking like a close game so take Fenerbahce Istanbul at +3 at odds of 1.90. For the Over/Under market, go OVER 152.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
