08/04/2016 18:00 – Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul v Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar – Betting Tips
The importance of this Friday night game will become clearer after the Thursday night fixtures but no matter what happens, the home team will be playing their final game in the Euroleague this season. You can guarantee that they will be going all out to end their debut campaign in good style.
There have been plenty of Istanbul derby games for Darussafaka to ensure this season in the Euroleague but the team has acquitted themselves well in the Top 16. They may be unable to clinch a playoff spot but there is every hope amongst the fans that they will be back for more in the following season. This is definitely an incentive for this game and they will want to seek revenge on Lokomotiv after the 24 point drubbing handed out by the Krasnodar side when the two teams clashed in April this season. That was a big loss but the Istanbul side have the ability to cause Lokomotiv some problems in this game.

It could be a massive night for Lokomotiv
Lokomotiv know that if Anadolu Efes defeat Panathinaikos on Thursday night, second place in Group E is theirs and a lot of the pressure for this game will be off them. However, if the Greeks get an away win in Istanbul on Thursday evening, Lokomotiv will also need to win in Istanbul to take the second spot and home-court advantage in the playoffs. The nature of this game is likely to be affected by the Thursday game but one player who’ll be keen to get into the action is Anthony Randolph. Randolph notched 18 points in the previous win against Darussafaka and another showing like that will go a long way for consolidating Lokomotiv’s playoffs hopes.
You have to fancy the away team to take this game so back Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar at -4.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90. Anyone taking an interest in the Over/Under market should look to go OVER 149.5 for the big game on Friday night. Bet Now!
