Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Zalgiris Kaunas v Crvena Zvezda Telekom BelgradeThis game is effectively a dead rubber with both teams having been eliminated from the playoff race. As this is the final Euroleague home game of the season for the Lithuanian champions, you would expect them to be keen to go out on a high but Belgrade will want to finish the season off as best as they can. In games like this when the pressure is off, there will hopefully be an opportunity to see some flowing basketball and a bit more freedom from players. It may not pan out in this manner but this game does have the potential to be a fun-filled game.

Both teams have a 9-13 record in the Euroleague this season, although there is a slight difference in how it has been achieved. Zalgiris grabbed a 5-5 record in the regular season while their Top 16 record stands at 4-8. Belgrade had a 6-4 record in the regular season and hold a 3-9 record in the op 16 so far.
