Euroleague Preview & Tips

The Regular Season’s final double-week is closing to an end. There are only 3 more rounds to play but a lot to be decided. Round 28 follows on Thursday and Friday. While Real Madrid, CSKA Moscow and Olympiacos have secured home advantage for the play-offs, 4th place is still for grabs. Fener is there but Baskonia and Panathinaikos, who face each other on a great battle, are planning to overtake.

Friday’s matches

On Friday, a Russian derby pits together teams with opposite intentions as CSKA Moscow (20-7) seek to rise to the top of the standings while Unics Kazan (7-20) hopes to avoid dropping to bottom place. It is a meeting between the league’s most prolific offense and the third-worst, with CSKA averaging 87.6 points per game while Unics has mustered just 76.6. But the home team, looking for its first win in more than two months, does have a slight edge in rebounding, averaging 33.4 boards per game against CSKA’s 32.9. The 9 points difference where the games is split looks too unpredictable and I have to stay away from this one.

Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul (13-14) knows it can’t afford any more slip-ups as it hosts crosstown rivals Galatasaray Odeabank (10-17). With four wins in its last six games, eliminated Galatasaray is certainly finishing its season with a flourish, and Darussafaka urgently needs to find that kind of form to have any chance of joining the post-season action. But it has won three consecutive home games, mainly thanks to excellent defense which has allowed an average of just 64.3 points over the course of those encounters. More of the same is required on Friday. I prefer to eat a kebab from my local Turkish guy than betting on this one.

If Darussafaka loses, Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (15-12) can take advantage by sealing a playoff spot with a victory at eliminated FC Barcelona Lassa (10-17). Points will be at a premium as the league’s two lowest scoring teams go head to head: Barcelona has averaged 71.6 points per game, and Zvezda 74.4. Expect Zvezda to force the game inside, as the Serbian team has converted the league’s lowest number of three-pointers (6.9 per game) with the worst conversion rate (33.9%), while Barcelona has made the fewest two-point strikes (16.8 per game). I’ll risk here going with Barcelona and the home win with at 2.20 with bet365.

And finally, first-placed Real Madrid (20-7) will attempt to hold onto that position as it travels to face a team which would like to take it off them, Olympiacos Piraeus (19-8). Having lost by 18 points in Madrid on the season’s opening day, the Greek team would love to win by more than that amount to claim head to head advantage. But with both teams already assured of home-court advantage in the play-offs, perhaps the greater goal is claiming superiority ahead of a potential Final Four meeting. And it will be a familiar story of Olympiacos’s top-ranked defense (73.1 points per game allowed) attempting to stop Madrid’s second-ranked offense (87 points per game scored). The latest news say that Printezis was sick while Spanoulis has been ill too and not at his best in the last games. Therefore I’m backing the away win with at 2.20 with bet365.

Thursday’s matches

The action starts with a cracking Istanbul derby as Anadolu Efes (15-12) hosts Fenerbahce (17-10). Both teams have a lot at stake, with Efes potentially just one more victory away from sealing a spot in the playoffs and Fenerbahce needing to keep control of home-court advantage. Efes is in flying form with six wins in seven games, while injury-hit Fenerbahce has lost two of its last three. The host claims a considerable advantage in rebounding (36 per game versus 32.1), but Fenerbahce shoots with greater accuracy, converting 52.4% of two-point attempts against Efes’s 49.8%. Fener has a lot of injuries that could cause another defeat but to see them at 2.75 (7/4) is challenging. Aaaaaahhh… Staying out of it because I hardly ever bet with my instinct.

In Tel Aviv, a new-look and rejuvenated Maccabi FOX (10-17) welcomes a Zalgiris Kaunas (12-15) team which simply must win to keep its playoff dreams intact. Maccabi seems to have turned a corner in recent weeks, winning two of its last three games by scoring an average of 86.7 points in those contests. Zalgiris will attempt to quell that offensive threat with physicality – the Lithuanian champ has committed more fouls than any other team this season, 23.4 per game, and drawn the joint fifth-highest amount (20.7 per game). Maccabi could have a good run to end their disappointing season so far and a win against Zalgiris is within its powers. The home win with a handicap of -2.0 points is priced at 1.90 with bet365.

Two eliminated teams still have pride to play for as rock-bottom EA7 Emporio Armani Milano (7-20) hosts Brose Bamberg (9-18). No team has allowed more points than Milan’s 86.9 per game, giving encouragement to a Bamberg team which ranks 6th in the league in scoring (79.2 points per game). But Milan can also score, with its average of 81.1 points better than any other team in the bottom half of the standings, so the outcome could well be decided by which team puts up greater defensive resistance. But will they do it this way? Or they will play freely and offensively? I think the latter and Over 163.0 points is priced at 1.90 with bet365.

Finally on Thursday, the Game of the Week sees red-hot Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (16-11) gun for its fifth consecutive victory with the visit of Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens (16-11). Both teams have already qualified for the playoffs but are still hoping to seal home-court advantage, with Baskonia possibly having the chance to rise into fourth place by the end of the night after sweeping Fenerbahce earlier in the season. Panathinaikos does not have that luxury, and needs to improve its offensive production on the road after averaging just 68.7 points in its last six games away from Athens. This is our main pick for basketball today (there is an NBA prediction later tonight), believing Panathinaikos will not lose with more than 4.5 points difference. Expecting a tight score, I’m backing the away win with the handicap of +4.5 at 1.90.

CSKA Moscow – Panathinaikos

The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season formally comes to a close on Wednesday night when CSKA Moscow hosts Panathinaikos OPAP Athens in a makeup game from Round 25. CSKA (23-10), which has already clinched second place in the standings and a matchup with Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul in the playoffs, will look to build on its five-game winning streak. Panathinaikos (11-22), which has lost eight of its last 10 games, is 16th in the standings and can overtake ALBA Berlin for 15th if it wins.

For CSKA, this game is for protocol only and could be a good chance for Coach Itoudis to spread minutes around. That could still prove to be a winning formula as second-string players try to use every available minute to fight for more playing time come the playoffs. A strong showing on the boards and good sharing of the ball would be the perfect recipe for another CSKA victory.

  • Nikola Milutinov could miss the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.
  • Mike James has been suspended by head coach Dimitris Itoudis.
  • Daniel Hackett will miss this game due to a shoulder injury.

The Greens will be shorthanded since Mario Hezonja is not eligible because he was not yet registered when this game was originally scheduled to be played in February. Accordingly, the Greens will need players like Ben Bentil, Shelvin Mack and Howard Sant-Roos to assist Nedovic in filling the basket to have a shot at finishing the season on a high note.

  • Mario Hezonja is not available to play since he was not with the team on the original date the game was scheduled.
