30/12/2015 19:00 – Fenerbahce Istanbul v Panathinaikos Athens – Betting Tips

Fenerbahce powered through the regular season with an 8-2 record while Panathinaikos stuttered slightly, eventually making it out of the group with a 6-4 record. Both teams know that this is the time of year when the season starts to get interesting and they’ll both be keen to get off to a strong start in the Top 16.

It will be a big night for Zeljiko Obradovic, the head coach of Fenerbahce, as he once again takes on a team that he managed to 5 Euroleague titles. The current coach of Panathinaikos, Sasha Djordjevic is a former player of Obradovic’s, so it’ll be interesting to see if there is a clash of styles. Both of these teams had a very strong defensive record in the regular season so it could well be that defences are on top in this game but with players like Bobby Dixon and Kostas Sloukas, the home fans will be looking for a winning start to this part of the campaign.

The team from Athens finished the regular season strongly

Euroleague - FenerbahceThe Greek side finished the regular season strongly, winning their last four games and they had players like Dimitris Diamantidis and Nick Calathes on top form in this late run. If these two players can maintain their form, they could do the damage in Istanbul on Wednesday night. Other big players for the Greens in this one are likely to be James Gist, Antonis Fotsis and Miroslav Raduljica, who could provide scoring options. The team from Athens will believe that they can maintain the run of form at the end of the regular season, so this could be an interesting game.

The bookmakers are siding with the home team for this game and you may find that there is value to be found in taking Fenerbahce Istanbul at -6.5 which is available at odds of 1.90. Given that both teams have been very strong defensively, there may not be too many points in this one, so for the Over/Under market, you should look to go OVER 149.5 at odds of 1.90Bet Now!
