Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem need to regain form in EuroCup Top 16
One thing that will give Hapoel hope for this game is the fact that the hosts have the third poorest ranked defence in the EuroCup, shipping an average of 88.2 points per game. This means that there may be haps and weaknesses for Hapoel to expose and this is where Curtis Jerrells is expected to deliver. Jerrells has offered an average of 17.1 points per game so far this season while there has been help from Jerome Dyson who has offered an average of 12.3 points per game so far this campaign. Amare Stoudemire has also chipped in with an average of 11 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game, so there are players that can make a difference for the team from Jerusalem.
While both teams will think they can win this game, the hosts will feel they have something to prove in this EuroCup Top 16 clash. Take Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius at -4.5 which you can find at odds of 1.90. Anyone looking for the Over/Under market should go UNDER 164.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
