29/09/2016 17:00 BST – BC Tartu v Donar – Betting Tips

If you are looking for excitement and drama heading into the second leg, this is definitely one of the games that you need to look out for. This is because the first leg finished level so whoever wins the game in Estonia will go through to the 2nd Round of the Qualifying stages for the FIBA Champions League.

First leg score was:

Donar 76 v BC Tartu 76

The Dutch team will view the first leg as a missed opportunity. Given that there was a 14 point led for the hosts at one point, failing to win the game will be extremely disappointing. However, there is no time for Donar to feel sorry for themselves, they need to bounce back quickly and show the qualities that helped them race into a lead at home. One thing that Donar will need to maintain is a fast pace, as they managed to pick up 16 points in transition in the opening leg. If they can replicate that sort of play, they still have a chance of progressing.

The Estonians will feel as though they are now favourites

The Estonians will rightly feel proud of the way they battled back in the opening leg of this tie. At 14 points down, it would be easy to crumble but knowing that the second leg was looming, it made sense to at least cut the deficit. In doing so, BC Tartu eventually levelled the tie and have given themselves a fantastic opportunity of success on Thursday night. Shooting from distance could be a popular tactic for the home team on Thursday night as they managed 7 from 17 at distance in the first leg.

The bookies think the Estonians will have enough to finish the job and you can see why this would be the case. With this in mind, look to back BC Tartu at -6.5, which you can find with odds of 1.83. There is an Over/Under market available for the game and you should look to go OVER 147.5, which is also on offer at odds of 1.83Bet Now!
