05-01-2017 20:05 BST - Maccabi Tel Aviv v Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul - Euroleague Betting Tips

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv v Darussafaka Dogus IstanbulBefore the game starts, there will be a lot of focus on the coaches. The Darussafaka coach needs no introduction to the Tel Aviv crowd as David Blatt has been a Euroleague winner with the Israeli side. The current Tel Aviv boss, Ainars Bagatskis has been part of the Blatt team, so the two men in charge know each other very well.

These two sides have met three times in the Euroleague with the Turkish side holding a 2-1 record at the moment. The hosts are currently 5-10 for the season while the Istanbul side are 8-7 over the 15 games played so far this campaign. The two sides clashed in December and it was the Turkish side who won the Istanbul clash by a narrow 86-84 score line.

Andrew Goudelock delivered 23 points in that defeat for Maccabi and he will be a player who can make the difference in this Thursday night game. Goudelock has provided an average of 16.6 points per game this season while veteran Devin Smith has offered an average of 11.8 points per game, showing that there is still a place for skilled veterans in the Euroleague. Sonny Weeks has also offered an average of 11.8 points per game for Maccabi so there are players that can have an impact for the hosts.

Darussafaka are doing okay in Euroleague action

Scottie Wilbekin also grabbed 23 points in the earlier clash between these teams and Wilbekin has an average of 11.9 points per game so far this season. Brad Wanamaker is the key points scorer for the Turkish side, offering an average of 13.7 points per game but Will Clyburn also delivers, and he has notched an average of 13.5 points per game this campaign.

The hosts have a slight edge when it comes to scoring points but the Darussafaka defensive record is more impressive than the Israeli side’s record and this could be the factor that makes the difference on Thursday night.
