30/11/2016 18:00 BST – Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius v RETAbet Bilbao Basket – Eurocup Betting Tips
Second bottom plays bottom in this Group B game but both teams will point to only having played 5 games while the three teams above them in the table have all played 6 games. That said, with both of these teams sitting with a 2-3 record, the losing side will find themselves scrambling for qualification to the Eurocup Top 16.
The hosts cannot clinch qualification with a win but they know that a win will go a long way to ensuring they finish above Bilbao, which is all they need to focus on at the moment. However, the opening game of the campaign was won by Bilbao, by an 80-76 margin, so those four points could come into play. You can expect the hosts to push on for points and even if Bilbao don’t manage to overturn a losing position, they’ll be looking to grab the head to head advantage in this one. This means that there is all to play for in this game and the Vilnius fans will be looking for David Logan to have a strong night. He has managed an average of 19 points per game this season and a similar showing on Wednesday could go a long way to helping his team continue in the tournament.

Bilbao want to extend their stay in Eurocup
The side from Bilbao may be bottom of Group B in the Eurocup but they are far from being out. That previous win over Rytas will be in their mind and they know that a win in this game will move them off the bottom and instantly change the mood of the club. Even if Bilbao lose, they won’t be eliminated from the Eurocup but there is no need for them to think in this manner just yet. Scott Bamforth is the leading scorer for Bilbao so far this campaign, providing an average of 12.8 points per game and he has been backed by Alex Mumbru, who has an average of 12.6 points per game. Mumbru delivered 19 points when these two teams clashed earlier in the season.
The bookies are backing the hosts to win the game and take home advantage. With that spur driving them on, look to take Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius at -4.5, which is provided at odds of 1.90. In the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 166.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
