Fenerbahce, the team that everyone in Europe are interested in (due to the man sitting on their bench this season) were pretty much against the wall last week with a 0-3 record, but they got their first win of Top16 against Zeljko Obradovic previous club. It wasn’t an easy win, on the contrary, but the goal was to get the win at any cost to get the ball rolling.
Milano might’ve beaten the Euroleague champions Olympiacos by 30 and some of their players feel that the momentum is shifting in their favour, but we are not convinced. However, no matter the final result, it will not be easy for any of the teams, we just choose to back Fenerbahce in this one, on their quest for glory. You will find attractive enough odds for this game by many bookmakers, but if you don’t know where to look, you can always look for some leads over at Sports Betting Dime.

Moving from South Europe to Eastern Europe now… one of Euroleague’s trademark clubs, Partizan, is struggling in their Top16 campaign, mainly due to injuries, as three of their starting players have all been ruled out with serious knee injuries. Although they beat the best Russian club, CSKA Moscow, two weeks ago in an attendance record-setting arena, things do not look bright for the young and enthusiastic club.
As mentioned above, three of their best scores are out, while their head coach has been diagnosed with diabetes and is sometimes unable to sit on the bench. On the other hand, Lokomotiv is on form, coming off two back to back wins and can not afford not to beat Partizan, if they are to stand a shot at playoffs qualification.
