23/03/2016 19:00 – SIG Strasbourg v Nizhny Novgorod – Betting Tips
Strasbourg were away day winners last week in Novgorod and their 85-94 road victory means that the hosts have a 9 point lead to protect coming into this game. There has never been a French team in the semi-finals of the Eurocup so if the hosts progress, a little bit of history will have been made. Nizhny want to stop that from happening and they are looking for their second appearance in the semi-finals in the past three years.
The away day win last week has provided Strasbourg with a great platform for success in this game and if Mardy Collins has another night like he had last week, they will be well on their way to success. Collins managed to grab 24 points on the night, but he wasn’t the only Strasbourg player in good form. Romain Duport managed to provide 18 points while Jeremy Leloup served up 14 points for Strasbourg. Overall, Strasbourg had 14 three point shots and they managed to sink 10 of them, and that is the sort of accuracy that can go a long way in winning basketball games.

The away team needs to turn it around
Nizhny know that they have a lot to do in this game, they have to be looking to win by 10 points, but it may not be beyond them. Evgeny Baburin grabbed 20 points in the opening while Semen Antonov managed to deliver 18 points in the home loss. One player that needs to perform better in this game is Victor Rudd. The Strasbourg defence shackled Rudd brilliantly, limiting him to only five points, and this definitely impacted the overall performance of the losing side last week. Nizhny were not that bad, and they did a good few things right, but they will need to up their game by a good margin this week if they are looking to progress.
The hosts should still be looking to get the job done and taking Strasbourg at -6.5, at odds of 1.90, should be a decent bet for this week. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 161.5, which is on offer at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
