05/03/2015 18:00 – Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul v Nizhny Novgorod
This may be the second time that these two teams have met this season, Fenerbahce winning 60-78 away from home, but it is also only the second ever clash between these two sides. This means that there isn’t a great deal of history to plough through to get an edge for your Euroleague betting activities, but you should find that there is more than enough to go on from this season’s activities alone.
Tarence Kinsey will be keen to get back into action, especially as he would be going up against his former Fenerbahce team mates but he may remain side-lined for this clash. It should be a game where the home team has too much for the opponents, allowing them to keep up the pressure at the top of the group, but you never know how things pan out in the Euroleague, which means that this game could have an edge to it.
