Spread Pick: Fenerbahce with handicap -5 at 1.90 Over/Under: Over 156 1.90 Bet Now!
09/01/2015 16:30 – Nizhny Novgorod v Fenerbahce Ulker
These teams have never met in the Euroleague before so this will be something new for basketball fans to enjoy on Friday night. There will be something familiar for Tarence Kinsey of Nizhny though as he lines up against his former team, and it is his clash with Andrew Goudelock that is likely to be one of the biggest indicators of how the game is going.
Nizhny came fourth in Group A, narrowly squeezing out Unics Kazan for a place in the Top 16 while Fenerbahce came second in Group B. Nizhny held a 5-5 record in the first group while their Turkish opponents held an 8-2 record and it is the away team that will understandably be the favourites coming into this game.
