30/11/2016 18:00 BST – PAOK v Ventspils – Betting Tips
The hosts are struggling so far in Group C in the FIBA Champions League but they’ll see this as a game where they can win or have an impact. The Greeks hold a 2-4 record at the moment but with their opponents only holding a 3-3 record, it is not as if there is too much between the sides. This should be a game that offers up plenty of excitement and there will be a few basketball betting opportunities available too.
The hosts have lost their last three matches, so they’ll be desperate to get back to winning ways as soon as possible. The only games that PAOK have won this season in the FIBA Champions League came in Round 2 and Round 3, so it has been a while since there was cause for celebration round these parts. The most recent defeat came at the hands of EWE Baskets, and the 62-67 score line was a sore one to take. PAOK don’t score a lot of points and this can be seen with the fact that top scorer Darryl Byrant has only provided an average of 11.8 points per game this season.

Ventspils lack consistency in FIBA Champions League
Ventspils have been very up and down this campaign and their form record runs LWLWLW, so following that logic, it looks as though this will be another defeat for the away side. However, there is a genuine chance to defeat that run in this game but they will need to match the form they showed in overcoming Neptunas Klaipeda, and they’ll have to be a lot better than they were when they lost to ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne 68-83 in Round 5. Willie Deane has been in decent form so far this season with an average of 14.5 points per game. If he manages to get these figures again, it could be a decent night for the away team.
The bookies think the hosts will nick this game but you can take Ventspils at +3 which is provided at odds of 1.83. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 143.5 which is provided at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
