01/03/2016 19:00 – FC Bayern Munich v ALBA Berlin – Betting Tips
This is the unique game going into the second leg of the Last 16 games. Not because it features two teams from the same country, there are three ties of this nature in this round but because the score is tied going into the deciding match. The 82-82 all score line in Berlin was an indicator of how well matched these two teams are, and it could be another close affair in Munich this week.
It should be pointed out that this will be the fourth time that these two sides have clashed in 10 weeks. Games in the German Cup, the German League and the Eurocup means that there are very few surprises left for either side but the fact that this is going to be a winner takes-all clash adds even more spice and excitement to the game.
In Berlin, Eldemin Kikanovic was the main man for the hosts, grabbing 24 points. For the away side, it was a more of a collective effort with 5 players in total edging into double figures. Dusko Savanovic was the leading man for Bayern with 15 points and if either of these two players can replicate their form this week, it could make all the difference. One area where Bayern have to improve on from last week is with respect to turnovers, they had 18 of them in the opening game.
The stats go the way of the home team
The stats seem to suggest that Bayern Munich will have enough to put ALBA away. The Munich side have a better return of average points and their performance index rating is also better. Bayern dropped into the Eurocup at the Last 32 stage, and they grabbed a 4-2 record while ALBA picked up a 3-3 record.
The hosts are big favourites for this game and the bookmakers have Bayern Munich at -6.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90. If you are looking for the Over/Under market, going OVER 157.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90, should be a more than decent bet for Tuesday night. This has the hallmarks of a classic game in Germany and it could well turn into one of the ties of the round. Bet Now!
