03/03/2016 17:00 – Khimki Moscow Region v FC Barcelona Lassa – Betting Tips

With both teams locked on a 4-4 record, and the away sitting in the last qualification spot in Group F, this is a game that both teams will be desperate to win. FC Barcelona won their home game earlier in the group by 87-70 so Khimki know that they have a big task on their hands if they want to turn the head to head record in their favour. However, any win will do for now for the home team as this will allow them to leapfrog their opponents into one of those all-important play-off spots.

Khimki have performed well in the Top 16, ranking as the second top scorers at the moment with an average of 85.4 points per game but there is a slight problem with the Russian’s side current form. Khimki are on a three game losing run and in this they have given up an average of 96.7 points. Comparing this to the Catalan club, who only gave up 66 points last week in the win against Olympiacos and you have a tale of two contrasting defences at the moment. Barcelona have definitely been boosted by the signing of Joey Dorsey, a defensive specialist who could make a big difference for Barcelona in the second half of the Top 16.

Both teams will think this is a winnable game

Euroleague - FC BarcelonaBarcelona have been inconsistent though and there is no reason for Khimki to think that they are up against it in this game. Tyler Honeycutt definitely has the ability to threaten Barcelona and with players like Alexey Shved and Egor Vyaltsev, the Moscow team will feel as though they are in with a big chance. Of course, Barcelona can call on players like Pau Ribas, Juan Carlos Navarro and Carlos Arroyo, so they have plenty of decent players to call on too.

The bookies think it’ll be a close game but taking FC Barcelona Lassa at +1.5, at odds of 1.90 should be a decent bet for Thursday evening. When it comes to the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 160.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90Bet Now!
