EUROLEAGUE TOP 16
Group E – Round 8
Thursday, February 25, 2016
Krasnodar, Russia – 19:00 cet
Lokomtiv Kuban (5-2): last December Lokomotiv destroyed Cedevita in Zagreb 75-89, a result we could see also in Krasnodar on Thursday. Lokomotiv was already a strong team, but with the signing of Grigory Shukhovtcov they are even stronger. Do the Russian team chase the Euroleague title? Yes, they do!
STARTING 5: Delaney, Randolph, Claver, Voronov, Broekhoff. COACH: Georgios Bartzokas.
Cedevita Zagreb (2-5): you already know I like Cedevita and I think this club is very important for European basketball. Anyway here we are talking about betting, about money, not about feelings. So I don’t see any chance for Cedevita to win in Russia this week. Sorry, Croatian friends.
STARTING 5: Pullen, Pilepic, Walker, Bilan, Gordic. COACH: Veljko Mrsic.
Odds: Lokomotiv @ 1.10 – Cedevita @ 7.20
Betting tip: Lokomotiv @ 1.10 stake 4/10

💈 BETTING TIPS
Unfortunately Italian bookmakers don’t offer any bet on Kup Kresimir Cosic, the Croatian Cup. so it’s impossible for me to place a bet. Anyway, on Thursday 18 we have 3 interesting VTB League games with CSKA, Loko and Khimki playing away games. I am confident to find good odds on these games as soon as possible.
