01/03/2016 18:00 – Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul v Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir – Betting Tips

The opening leg of this tie was another close game and the away team for the second leg have a three point lead to defend. Pinar prevailed by 67-64 in the opening game and this means that Galatasaray need to win by at least 4 points in order to triumph to the quarter finals of the Eurocup. There was a noisy crowd last week but that will be nothing compared to the atmosphere and excitement on offer in Istanbul this week.

The top man for the hosts last week was Colton Iverson, and the big man grabbed a double-double in the big win. This consisted of 16 points and 10 rebounds, but he wasn’t the only big player on the night for the hosts as Kenny Gabriel maned to offer up 13 points, 5 assists and 3 steals over the course of the game. The best showing of the night came from Errick McCollum, who managed to grab 21 points and 13 rebounds for the away team, giving him a double-double of his own. If McCollum can ignite this game, you can rest assured that the home fans will be cheering his name throughout the evening.

Both teams have room for improvement

Eurocup - GalatasarayOne aspect that both teams will look to build on in this game is their quality from distance. Karsiyaka only offered up an 18.2% from distance while Galatasaray could only provide a 20.8% return from downtown. If either of these two teams can positively impact on this part of their game, it could make all the difference.

This is likely to be a tough and bruising encounter and the home fans expect a win. After all, they have enjoyed 7 wins out of 8 games this campaign but Pinar won their most recent game on the road and they’ll be looking to make this two out of two on the road.

You should be looking towards Galatasaray for this game and the Istanbul side can be backed at -5.5, which is on offer at odds of 1.90. For the Over/Under market, you should look to go OVER 151.5 which is available at odds of 1.90Bet Now!
