Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Fenerbahce Ulker v Laboral Kutxa VitoriaSome teams are pretty consistent at making it through to the Top 16 so it is no surprise to learn that this is the third year in a row that these two sides have met at this stage. This is the sort of Euroleague basketball betting information that betting fans love to be aware of, but it’s important not to dwell on the past too much when you are looking for a current form guide.

One player that cannot afford to dwell on the past is Nemanja Bjelica, who will be coming up against his former side in this match and he will be a key man for Fenerbahce coach Zeljko Obradovic. This should be a tight game and it’s unlikely that either team will race away from the other until very late on, if at all.
