07-12-2016 20:30 BST - Sidigas Avellino v Mega Leks - Champions League Betting Tips
This is the second game of Group D this week to feature a home team with a 5-2 record and an away side with a 2-5 record. It is no surprise to see that as with the other game, the bookies believe that the hosts will record a convincing victory in their pursuit of the top spot. This may limit what you want to achieve with basketball betting for this game but there should be something to look out for.
These sides clashed in Serbia in Round 1 of Group D in the FIBA Champions League and Avellino picked up a convincing win. This means they will fancy their chances of winning the home game by an even more convincing margin. When you consider that game was won by an 84-70 margin, this could be a game where there are plenty of points being scored by the hosts. After a loss in Round 6, Avellino bounced back in their most recent game with a fantastic 85-75 win over Juventus Utena. This will have boosted the teams confidence and it is likely that Joe Ragland will be a key player in the next few games, with Ragland offering an average of 17.8 points per game so far this season.

Mega Leks need wins in FIBA Champions League
It has been a tough time for Mega Leks this season, with wins in Round 2 and Round 6 being the only times the team has come away with a victory. They know that a win in this game will be very unlikely but that doesn’t mean that they cannot put up a good show and scare their opponents. If Mega Leks are going to impact on this game, Alpha Kaba needs to put in a strong performance. He has delivered an average of 11.9 points per game so far this season, and this means he will be the player his team-mates look towards for points and support play.
You can take Sidigas Avellino at -20.5 at odds of 1.83 and if you are looking for the Over/Under market, choose to go UNDER 158.5 at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
