04-01-2017 20:00 BST - Alba Berlin v Unicaja Málaga - Eurocup Betting Tips
This is a game between two sides who held a 4-4 record in the regular season, making this Group H Top 16 EuroCup clash a perfect chance for one of the sides to boost their chances of progress. There have been 8 European meetings of these teams and the Spaniards have a healthy 6-2 lead over their German hosts. All of these games were in the Euroleague so this is the first EuroCup clash between the teams.
The Berlin side can boast the second top scorer in the league with Elmedin Kikanovic offering an average of 22.3 points per game this season. This is the sort of response that most teams would be delighted to have and it has been a factor in ALBA making it to this stage of the season. This can be seen with the fact that ALBA have one of the weaker defences in the league, shipping an average of 94.6 points per game, although they are the third top scorers with an average of 89.1 points per game. Another key player for the German side this season has been Dragan Milosavljevic, who has provided an average of 13.1 points per game.
