06/03/2015 20:00 – Unicaja Malaga v Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Unicaja Malaga v Anadolu Efes IstanbulThese two teams are regular opponents in the Euroleague and there is a history of Top 16 clashes between the two of them. In the earlier group game between the two sides, Efes were trailing 15 points at half-time but they bounced back to eventually win by 74-70. Unicaja know that they can get at their opponents but as all Euroleague fans know, this isn’t always enough to win a tight game of basketball.

Unicaja Malaga has a 5-13 record so far this season, which includes a 4-6 record in the regular season and a terrible 1-7 record in the Top 16. This shows the signs of a team that has gone off the boil in Europe and there is no doubt that the home side will be keen to get back on track in this home game. It won’t be easy though as their Turkish opponents have a 10-8 record in the Euroleague so far this season. This includes a 6-4 regular season record and a 4-4 Top 16 record, something which Anadolu will be looking to improve on Friday if they get the chance. There is a similar average points scored level for the teams with Unicaja grabbing a 74.2 average for the campaign so far with Efes offering a 74.4 average for the campaign.
