03-01-2017 18:30 BST - Juventus Utena v Mega Leks - Champions League Betting Tips
Fourth may be playing sixth in this Group D FIBA Champions League clash but there is a bit of a gap between these two sides. The Lithuanian hosts hold a 6-4 record while the Polish side are on their travels with a 3-7 record. The hosts are looking up and will be keen to close the gap above them while the away side are likely looking over their shoulder and will be desperate to avoid dropping down further this season.
When you consider that Juventus Utena came through the qualifying process, defeating FC Porto over two legs, they have performed very well this season. When the two teams clashed earlier on in the season, it was a close run thing but Juventus managed to squeeze a 79-77 victory out on the road, so they’ll be looking to do the double in this head-to-head battle. Juventus lost their last game of 2016, a 57-79 loss to Tenerife and they’ve lost three of their last four games but on the whole, this has still been a very strong season and this game offers a chance to bounce back strongly. Jamar Diggs is a player that has been in fine form, offering an average of 12.8 points per game this season.

Mega Leks have toiled in FIBA Champions League
Mega Leks actually won their last game of 2016, defeating KK Mornar by a score of 60-53 so they will have some optimism coming into this clash. However, they were defeated in three games in a row before that and of course, when they played Juventus Utena earlier on this season, they lost out at home. It was a very narrow defeat though so an away win could give them a head to head victory which may allow them to spring forward for the remainder of the group stage. Kostja Mushidi has been at the heart of a lot of the best activities for Mega Leks this season, offering an average of 10.8 points per game.
The hosts are well fancied for this clash and you can take Juventus Utena at -9, which is available at odds of 1.83. For the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 160.5 at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
