05/02/2015 19:45 – Crvena Zvezda v Zalgiris Kaunas
Sometimes the first win is the more difficult to obtain and once you get off the mark, things start to fall into place a little bit easier. This is at least what Crvena Zvezda are hoping for now that they are off and running in the Top 16. They have a good chance at home to Zalgiris Kaunas and both teams have a big incentive to dig in and get the win. When it comes to Euroleague basketball betting, a battle to get away from the bottom is just as intriguing as a battle for the top and this is exactly what this match is.
The team that loses this game is going to end up at the bottom of Group E, which is something that both teams will be desperate to avoid. This creates a lot of tension for the players, coaches and fans but for the rest of us, it makes for a rather exciting game of Euroleague basketball.
