Euroleague Top 16 Betting Tips - Crvena Zvezda v PanathinaikosThis is another massive game in the Euroleague and fans attending this one could get to witness a bit of Euroleague history. Boban Marjanovic is hunting down a place in the record books in this game but for Panathiniakos, a place in the playoffs is at stake. The thing is, at half-time, the complexion of the game could change very quickly. At this point, the teams will know the full-time score from Berlin and if Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv win away from home, Panathinaikos are assured of fourth place in the group and the playoff spot that goes with it. This could lead to a drop off in desire and hunger from the away team. However, if ALBA Berlin triumphs at home, the Greek side will know that they need to win to make it to the playoffs, and this could provide some much needed spark and drive in the second half. No matter what happens in the first half, it may be a result far away from Belgrade that has the biggest impact on the second half of this one.

The home side have a 9-14 record going into this game, holding a 6-4 record in the regular season and a 3-10 record in the Euroleague. The playoff hopes of the home team have been dormant for quite a while. The Greeks hold a 12-11 record in the Euroleague this season, holding a 5-5 record in the regular season and a 7-6 record in the Top 16. For average points scored, there isn’t too much in it but the Greek team leads 76.0 to 75.7.
