04/01/2016 18:00 – Cedevita Zagreb v Panathinaikos Athens – Betting Tips
The hosts have a 3-2 record in Group E and are gunning a second home win in a row while the away team carries a 2-3 record and are still looking for their first road win at this stage of the competition. Heading to the halfway stage, the stakes are high for both of these teams to come away from this game with a win.
Miro Bilan has been one of the bright sparks of the Top 16 this campaign and he will need to deliver another strong performance for Cedevita if they are going to achieve another positive win in this game. Players like Jacob Pullen and Nemanja Gordic will also be relied upon to halt the opposition in their tracks. The stats are certainly against the home team, toiling in assists and steals but this could be another example of why statistics don’t tell the full story in basketball. The passion of the Zagreb crowd can make a difference in close games and this could be a factor in how this Group E game pans out on Thursday night.

The Greeks may have to shuffle their line-up
Panathinaikos are unsure whether they will be able to call on Dimitris Diamantidis for this game, which would be a blow for the Greek side. They still have plenty of players who can do a job for them and there will be a great level of pressure placed onto the shoulders of Nick Calathes. Other players who will be expected to lead the line for the away team on Thursday night will be James Gist and Antonis Fotsis, whose experience may prove crucial in this game and in the latter half of the Top 16. Panathinaikos are ranked fourth with respect to assists and steals, which may be key aspects of the game.
The away team are deemed to be the favourites heading into this game but taking Cedevita Zagreb at +3, at odds of 1.90, is likely to be a decent bet for Thursday evening. If you are interested in the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER149.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
