Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Brose Bamberg
Competition: Turkish Airlines Euroleague
Date: 11 January 2018
Time : 20:05 CET
Maccabi Tel Aviv were doing a great job against Real Madrid on the road, at least in the first half, but they flopped really bad in the third quarter. They were outscored by 21:10, and eventually lost in that match by 93:81. Jackson had the game of his life with a massive 29 points, 5 assists, 6 rebounds and 4 triples, while Parakhouski scored 16 with 8 rebounds. Moreover, Zoosman, Tyus and Kane scored 9 each, but it was not enough. Maccabi Tel Aviv have been in some bad form lately, having won just two of their five matches in all competitions. They are now sitting at the 8th spot of the Euroleague (W8 L8), scoring an average of 79.81 points per match, while allowing 81.62 in the process.
On the other hand, Brose Bamberg proved yet again that they are going through a rough patch, when they fell by 70:74 at home against Khimki Moscow. They held on tight for the first three quarters, but they were outplayed in the final quarter, as they fell victim to Alexey Shved’s 28 points. Wright actually posted a massive double double with 20 points and 10 boards, but only Hackett (12p, 6as, 7r) and Rubit (10p, 6r) were somewhat decent in that match. That was Brose Bamberg’s sixth loss in seven matches, but they managed to bounce back with a slim home win for the domestic BBL. As far as the Euroleague is concerned, Brose Bamberg are now sitting at the 13th spot of the league table (W6 L10), with an average of 72.93 points per game, against 78.93 conceded.

Maccabi Tel Aviv quite easily won by 71:88 in Germany on October 12th this season, but it was Brose Bamberg who won both matches against Maccabi Tel Aviv last season. The Germans actually have the upper hand in this match-up (W3 L2), having won once and lost once in this venue.
Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Brose Bamberg: Prediction
Maccabi Tel Aviv might have been in bad form lately, but to be honest, if they can’t defeat a struggling Brose Bamberg side, they probably don’t deserve to be in the top 8 spots. Brose Bamberg are mediocre at best this season, and I doubt if they can challenge anything here.
Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Brose Bamberg: Betting Tips
