Last week’s opponents will square off again
This week the Eurocup sees the return games of last week’s outings so there is a quick chance for revenge for any team that was downed last week. There are four games taking place on Tuesday evening and then a dozen games are scheduled to take place on Wednesday night. Depending on results, up to five teams could book their qualification spot this week, so there is a lot to look forward to in Round 4 of the Eurocup Last 32.
26 January 2016 Eurocup Regular Season Group I – EWE Baskets Oldenburg v PAOK Thessaloniki
Oldenburg have struggled at home in the Eurocup this season but four wins out of five away games sees the team standing in a good position. They currently have a 2-1 record in the Last 32 and they come into the home tie with PAOK knowing that they got the better of the two teams in last week’s clash, winning by a score of 68-81.
The Greek side travel with a 1-2 record and this will be their first game in Germany in over 10 years. If the away team are going to add to the misery suffered by Oldenburg at home, they will need to cut back on the turnovers they suffer, currently standing at an average of 17 per game.
The bookmakers make the host team favourites for this game and you can find EWE Baskets Oldenburg at -5.5 at odds of 1.90. If you are looking for the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 155.5, which can be found at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
26 January 2016 Eurocup Regular Season Group I – Limoges CSP v Valencia Basket
Limoges grabbed their first Last 32 win of the season in the 72-92 win in Valencia last week, giving new head coach Dusko Vujosevic an ideal start to his time at the club. This was the first defeat of the season for Valencia and they will be keen to exact revenge. The Spanish side are unbeaten in six away games in the Europcup and they are still high scorers, averaging 86 points per game in the Last 32.
The hosts moved on to a 1-2 record in the Last 32 last week and the away team slipped to a 2-1 record, but this quick turnaround sees both teams under pressure to grab the win.
Valencia are big favourites for this game and the Spanish side will probably be fired up after their loss last week. You should look to take Valencia at -6.5, at odds of 1.90 and with the Over/Under market in mind, choose to go OVER 154.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
26 January 2016 Eurocup Regular Season Group J – Neptunas Klaipeda v EA7 Emporio Armani Milan
Amazingly, there are still no away victories in Group J after three rounds and the hosts hold a 1-2 record while their Italian opponents hold a 2-1 record. This is the first time that Milan have been in the Eurocup for a decade, and they’ve been very tight at the back. Milan triumphed last week and they know that while Neptunas will be keen to gain revenge, the hosts hold the lowest scoring record in the Last 32, with an average of 67.3 points per game.
The Italians look well placed to grab the first away win of the Group, so take EA7 Emporio Armani Milan at-5, which can be found at odds of 1.90. In the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 155.5, which can be found at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
27 January 2016 Eurocup Regular Season Group N – Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari v CAI Zaragoza
The hosts hold a 1-2 record in the Last 32 and the Italian champions know that they need to be more ruthless in front of the net if they are going to progress. The home side has shown strength in retaining the ball, but this only can do so much.
The away side has confidence after the 87-75 win in Spain last week, going down as the team’s fifth win in 6 Eurocup games. If they can maintain this form, they will be making progress beyond this stage of the tournament.
It threatens to be a close game and taking CAI Zaragoza at +1.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90, should be a good bet. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 159.5, which is available at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
