08-02-2017 20:00 BST - Alba Berlin v Valencia Basket - Eurocup Betting Tips
There isn’t a great deal at stake in this game in Group of the EuroCup. The hosts have been eliminated and if the team below them in the table loses, ALBA will definitely finish in third spot. The Spanish side are guaranteed to top the group regardless of what happens in this game so we may see a match between two teams who are largely relaxed and free in their options for this game.
ALBA Berlin have a 1-4 record so far this season and it has been a tough stage of the tournament for the Germans. When these teams clashed earlier in the season, the game finished 85-80 in favour of the Spaniards. Bojan Dubljevic picked up 15 points and 8 rebounds in that game while ALBA had three separate players offering 12 points. ALBA have found scoring not too difficult this season but clearly they have struggled to stop other teams scoring. Valencia have the best defensive record in the tournament, averaging 71.2 points against them so far this season.

Valencia have enjoyed the EuroCup so far
Valencia are unbeaten in Group H so far, carrying a 5-0 record to Germany. You would expect the Spanish side to look for a win in this game that maintains their record and gives them something to be proud of.
One thing that Valencia may be looking at is clinching home advantage. Not just for the next round but for the rest of the Playoffs, such has been their dominance of the group. There is a factor of Bayern Munich, the only other team who hasn’t lost at this stage of the tournament, so it is not entirely clear-cut but a Valencia win does their part. If Bayern lose or their winning margin is less than 5 points more than Valencia’s, the Spanish side is classed as the top team in the tournament and will take an advantage into the rest of the tournament, depending on how far they progress.
Back Valencia at -5 at odds of 1.90. If you are looking for the Over/under market, go UNDER 163.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
