08-02-2017 18:00 BST - Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius v Zenit St Petersburg - Eurocup Betting Tips
We have another do or die clash in the EuroCup in group G this midweek, which is exactly what people are looking for on the final day of the season. There is a head to head to consider with this game, so it is not a straightforward do or die but there is still enough excitement on offer to make this a game well worth checking out.
The hosts are currently outside of the playoff spots and their 2-3 record means that they have to win this game to have any chance of progressing in the tournament. Of course, winning by itself won’t be enough due to the score in the previous game between these sides. The hosts have to win by a minimum of 9 points to take the head to head record between these teams so you can expect some frantic forward play near the end of the game if the Vilnius side are within touching distance of that tally.

Zenit want more action in EuroCup this season
The incentive for the away team may lie in the fact that they could still win the group. The most important thing for Zenit is to not lose out in the overall scheme of things in the group, so avoiding a 9 point loss is the first target but beyond that, there is a scenario that would see them top the group. If Zenit win and Hapoel lose in their match against Nizhny, there will be great celebrations in Vilnius as the away team takes first place in Group G of the EuroCup.
That earlier meeting saw Zenit win by 88-79 and that is what gives them the edge in this group. The Russians have won all three previous clashes between these sides and in the most recent victory, it was Janis Timma who earned the plaudits. Timma scored 27 points while offering 6 rebounds and this led him to be named MVP of the week in that round. Drew Gordon grabbed a double-double in that loss, his 16 points and 11 rebounds not being enough to turn the tie in his team’s favour.
This game has the makings of a close one and you can take Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius at -3 at odds of 1.90. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 168.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
