07-12-2016 20:30 BST - RETAbet Bilbao Basket v Montakit Fuenlabrada - Eurocup Betting Tips
We have a Spanish domestic clash in the Eurocup this midweek and there is plenty at stake. The hosts sit with a 2-4 record and are currently at the foot of the table and outside of the qualification spots for the Top 16. This places a great deal of pressure on the hosts but if the away side loses, their Top 16 hopes could be in trouble too so there is definitely a great deal to look out for in this game, including some top basketball betting options.
These two sides clashed earlier on in the season with Montakit grabbing an 89-78 win. This means the hosts are not only looking to win the game, they would love to be able to turn around that deficit, and this could be a factor late on in the game. If Bilbao are leading late on, expect them to push hard in the hope of claiming a head to head lead against their rivals too. If they are pushing, you can expect Scott Bamforth to be one of the players who is leading from the front. He has managed an average of 13.3 points per game this season and if he manages to find form in this game, Bilbao are still in with a chance of staying active in the Eurocup.

Montakit are looking for more from the Eurocup
Montakit are currently in third place and if ALBA Berlin loses in the earlier game, they can relax a little going into the game. This makes it difficult to know just how focused the away side will be but the fact that they are playing a domestic rival in European competition should ensure that they are focused and ready for action, regardless of what happens earlier in Group B. Marko Popovic was absent from the last Fuenlabrada game, so he may not be in position in this game but with an average of 14.2 points per game, he has been the most potent performer for the away side so far this campaign.
The bookies are backing the hosts and with that head to head record on the line, back Bilbao Basket at -6.5, which is on offer at odds of 1.90. If you’re looking for the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 166.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
