08-03-2017 18:00 BST - Besiktas Sompo Japan v Pinar Karsiyaka - Champions League Betting Tips

This tie is very well balanced as there are just five points splitting these teams. With home advantage, the Turkish side will fancy their chances of overhauling the deficit and making up for the loss that they suffered last week. There is no getting away from the fact that both sides will believe that they can triumph in this game and this means that we could be in for a thrilling evening of FIBA Champions League basketball action on Wednesday night.

The first leg finished 75-70 in favour of Pinar, and this gives us a thrilling encounter to look forward to. The winners from the first leg will hope that they have given themselves a platform for success but they know that it isn’t a big enough margin that would allow them to sit back and defend all night. This means that both teams are likely to have attacking intentions for this clash, so you should be looking out for a lot of points.

Mike Green was a huge player for Pinar in the opening game and he managed to provide 25 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists over the course of the season. That is the sort of display that makes the difference in big games and if Green can replicate that showing in this tie, you will find that Pinar will fancy their chances of making it through to the quarter-final stages of the FIBA Champions League.

Pinar can do the damage in the FIBA Champions League

Vladimir Stimac also had a big game in the last outing and he offered up a double-double in the defeat. Stimac provided 20 points but he also offered 13 rebounds, making him a hugely influential player on that game. Neither of these players are the current top scorers for their team over the season so far so this is another indicator that there is a great level of firepower between these sides. We can only hope that these players step up and try to take control of the game.
