With just two rounds to go in the Eurocup regular season, there are still 15 places in the Last 32 this week. Many of these places will be filled this week, which means that Tuesday and Wednesday night look set to be dramatic nights for European basketball fans.
There are just the two games in the Eurocup on Tuesday the 8th of December, which means that there will be a bumper crop of games on Wednesday night for European basketball fans.
JSF Nanterre v EWE Baskets Oldenburg
Both teams have a 3-5 record, the home team are in the last qualification spot in Group A and if other results go the victors way, the team that wins this game will be celebrating qualification to the Last 32 of the Eurocup.
This means that there is an awful lot riding on this game and the bookmakers are backing the home team to make it through. You can take JSF Nanterre with a handicap of -4.5 at odds of 1.90 in this one. When it comes to the Over/Under market, you’ll find that going OVER 152.5 at odds of 1.90 should be of interest in a game that could be a nail-biter.
Proximus Spirou Charleroi v SLUC Nancy
The hosts are currently in fifth place in Group C, just outside of the Last 32 qualification spots but they’ll fancy their chances with a home game against the bottom team of the group. The hosts have a 3-5 record, having lost their opening 5 games and then winning their last 3 games, while the away side has a 1-7 record for the campaign. A win will keep the hosts in contention for a knock-out spot, at least until the other games are played on Wednesday evening.
You’ll find the hosts with a -4.5 handicap at odds of 1.90 in this one. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 147.5 at odds of 1.90.
9 December 2015 Eurocup Regular Season Group D– Unics Kazan v Buducnost Voli Podgorica
The competitive nature of Group D in the Euroleague can be seen with the fact that Unics Kazan top the table with a 5-3 record but still haven’t qualified for the Last 32. They’ll be hoping to seal their place in the knockout event with a win against Buducnost Voli Podgorica who have a 3-5 record and who sit just outside the qualification spots. A win not only seals qualification for the hosts, it will seal a spot in the Last 32 for Aris Thessaloniki, so there is a lot riding on this game.
Keith Langford has been in excellent form for Kazan this season and if he bags points tonight, it is likely to be an evening of celebration for the home fans. For Budocnost, Tadija Dragicevic is likely to be the player that bags points so he is the man to look out for.
Given what is at stake for the home team, you can expect Unics Kazan to come out fighting so take them at -10.5 with odds of 1.90. If you are keen to get involved with the Over/Under market for this game, look to go OVER 148.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
9 December 2015 Eurocup Regular Season Group E – Szolnoki Olaj v Besiktas Sompo Japan Istanbul
With both teams on a 3-5 record and sitting in third and fourth place respectively, this likely to be a tense game. The fact that the team in fifth place also has a 3-5 record and is waiting for a slip-up on Wednesday night will only ramp up the pressure.
This is the fifth time these two sides have met in the past 5 years and at the moment, Besiktas hold a 3-1 record.
If Besiktas win, they enter the Last 32. However, if Besiktas lose, they can still qualify for the next round if Rytas lose or PAOK loses, so the chances are that something will come the way of the Turkish team on Wednesday night.
The hosts are looking to overturn a 76-67 defeat in Turkey in Round 4, but if they win with a smaller score than this, they can still claim a spot in the Last 32 if PAOK and Rytas both lose. This means that Wednesday will be a night for fans keeping up to date with everything that is going on.
Considering what is at stake, take the away team which means opting for Besiktas Sompo Japan Istanbul with a -3.5 handicap at odds of 1.90. This could be a tense game but both teams need to win so for the Over/Under market, go OVER 147.5 at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
