22/04/2016 20:00 – Strasbourg v Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul – Betting Tips
The waiting is almost over with the first leg of the Eurocup final almost upon us. The first game of the tie takes place in France with Strasbourg welcoming Galatasaray for the big game on Friday night. The second leg of the final takes place on Wednesday the 27th of April which means that there will be a few nervous days and nights between the two legs for fans, coaches and players alike.
One thing that will provide Strasbourg with confidence for the Final is the fact that they have developed and grown over the season. It could have been very different for the French side, they had a chance of making it to the Top 16 of the Euroleague but were downed in the final game of their regular season. They lost to Real Madrid, at the time the reigning Euroleague champions but in a strange twist of fate, the French side’s European campaign has lasted longer than the Spanish giants, which crumbled earlier this week. The loss of Matt Howard presented Strasbourg with a problem but they adapted and a double over-time win over Nizhny Novgorod in the quarter-finals raised hopes and expectations. No matter what the score is this week, a 5-1 record away from home will see the French side optimistic that they can triumph in Turkey next week.

Galatasaray know they can score
The Turkish side have plenty of Euroleague experience, and while that is the platform they want to perform on, Eurocup success would be very much enjoyed by the team and fans. In Errick McCollum, the away side for Friday night has the second top scorer in the tournament and then there is Chuck Davis in the squad with Davis being the third top scorer in the all-time record of the tournaments. The Turkish team will be keen to get a positive result this week but they know that they hold a 10-1 record, including seven double-figure wins in a row, at home, so we may have to accept that whatever happens this week in the Eurocup final, nothing will be decided until the middle of next week.
The bookmakers can barely split these two teams heading into the first leg so look to take Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul at +1.5 at odds of 1.90. For the Over/Under market, look to go OVER 154.5 which you can find at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
