Zenit – Fenerbahce

Zenit St Petersburg will look to keep its hot streak going when it hosts Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul. Zenit (6-2) has won three in a row and is tied with FC Barcelona (8-2) for the fewest losses in the league. Fenerbahce (4-7), which has been plagued by injuries, has slumped to four straight losses and is 2-4 on the road this season. However, Zenit has struggled so far at home, where it has lost two of its three games.

Zenit is averaging 74.4 points per game and whenever it has controlled the pace to its liking, it has won. Zenit is 5-0 when it has scored in the 70s. It lost its lone shootout (83-88 against Khimki Moscow Region). Raising its three-point shooting – Zenit is third-worst in the league at 34.8% from downtown – would also boost the home team.

Fenerbahce is ranked second-bottom in both offensive rebounds (7.6 orpg.) and blocked shots (1.5 bpg.). The starting frontline of Jan Vesely and Danilo Barthell will have their work cut out for them against Zenit’s bigs, but if they can take control of the paint, get some second-chance scores and deny the hosts points near the basket, it would change the game and put Fenerbahce in a favorable position.

De Colo has been sidelined with a calf muscle injury.

basketball prediction Tip: 1/1 at HT/FT at 1.80 with bet365
(Price correct at 03/12/2020, 08:30 CET, subject to change)

CSKA – Olympiacos

One of the EuroLeague’s great rivalries will continue when CSKA Moscow hosts Olympiacos Piraeus on Thursday evening. CSKA (8-3) is red-hot with six consecutive wins to tie league leader FC Barcelona (8-2) for the most victories in the league. Olympiacos (5-4) returned to action last week after missing two games due to COVID-19-related matters and suffered a loss at TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. However, with an additional week to return to shape, the Reds should be a top-notch opponent.

Despite the presence of a pair of All-EuroLeague big men in its starting lineup, CSKA has not dominated the paint. It is shooting a mere 51.1% on two-pointers, has only 3 rebounds more than its opponents all season and has had more of its shots blocks (2.4 bpg.) that it has rejected (2.2). All players are better when active on offense and with CSKA’s league-low 13.8 assists per game, that could be one way to fix the problem. Better ball movement and bigger roles for Nikola Milutinov and Toko Shengelia could change a lot.

Not only is Mike James red-hot, but in CSKA’s wins this season he has averaged 20.9 points on 44% three-point shooting. Stopping CSKA’s top-gun will be a priority with Kostas Sloukas, Charles Jenkins and perhaps even Shaquille McKissic tasked with that job. Raising the team’s three-point accuracy, which at 33.8% is second-lowest in the league, could also be a boon for the visitors.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning margin 3-way: Any other result (1-5p difference) at 3.30 with bet365

Maccabi – Crvena Zvezda

In a clash between teams on a slide, Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv hosts Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade on Thursday. Maccabi (3-8) has dropped three straight games with the last two coming by a total of 3 points. Zvezda (4-7) has lost two in a row by double figures. After losing just once at home in the entire 2019-20 campaign the Israeli champs are 2-3 on their home floor this season. Zvezda is 2-4 on the road.

Maccabi’s recent woes have been as much mental as anything else. A late turnover cost the team dearly in Valencia two weeks ago and allowing a four-point play to AX Armani Exchange Milan in the final minute at home last week allowed the visitors to force overtime. Total focus for 40 minutes must be the goal every week and it is now more important than ever. With the recent return of key players from injury and the roster close to full, Maccabi has the weapons it needs to succeed.

Zvezda big man Johnny O’Bryant returns to face the team he made his EuroLeague debut with and he is joined on the frontline by Emanual Terry, who got to know Maccabi last season when he played for Hapoel Jerusalem. Their contributions will be important against a Maccabi team that leads the league in rebounding (36.7 rpg.) with a big front line. A strong evening on the glass could be just what Zvezda needs in Tel Aviv.

Langston Hall missed Zvezda’s Round 11 game.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-7.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 03/12/2020, 08:30 CET, subject to change)

Milano – Panathinaikos

In a clash between two teams coming off makeup games on Tuesday night, AX Armani Exchange Milan hosts Panathinaikos OPAP Athens on Thursday. Milan (6-3) has won three consecutive games and it displayed fantastic defense in a 75-55 victory over ALBA Berlin earlier this week. Milan is 4-1 at home this season. Panathinaikos (3-7) has lost four straight road games and allowed at least 93 points in all of them.

Milan is second in the league in scoring this season with 82.2 points per game and comes off its best defensive outing of the season, showing that the team can game plan against its opponents’ weaknesses from game to game. In this case, Panathinaikos’s struggles have been on defense and a fast-paced, high-scoring game could be to the hosts’ advantage and the visitors’ detriment. Controlling the gloss and handing the ball to Malcolm Delaney and Rodriguez and letting them run could be the recipe for another victory.

Panathinaikos has allowed an average of 91.6 points on the road so far this season and it cannot expect to win many games outside of Greece with such numbers. Much of that damage has been done from the perimeter with opponents averaging 40.3% shooting on three-pointers. Alongside Howard Sant-Roos, the Greens will need Nedovic, Shelvin Mack and Georgios Kalaitzakis to chip in with strong defensive games to change things for Panathinaikos.

basketball prediction Tip: Panathinaikos Over 79.5 at 2.50 with bet365
(Price correct at 03/12/2020, 08:30 CET, subject to change)

Valencia – ALBA Berlin

Valencia Basket will look for its fourth straight win when it hosts ALBA Berlin, which comes off its worst offensive showing in ages. Valencia (7-3) has climbed up the standings with its recent winning run and boasts a 4-1 record at home with the lone loss coming at the hands of first-place FC Barcelona. ALBA (3-7) will play its second game in 48 hours after falling 75-55 on Tuesday at AX Armani Exchange Milan in its lowest-scoring game since 2003. ALBA is 1-3 on the road this season.

Valencia leads the league in both scoring (82.5 ppg.) and assists (20.9 apg.). Its great ball movement has led to great looks and a league-best 58.5% on two-point shooting. ALBA has allowed the third-most points (83.2 ppg.) and its opponents have made a league-high 57.6% of their two-pointers. The key for Valencia is to attack and push the ball inside to Dubljevic, Nikola Kalinic and Derrick Williams and to have the perimeter scorers, such as Klemen Prepelic, Sam Van Rossom and Guillem Vives attack too.

Vanja Marinkovic has missed Valencia’s last five games due to a shoulder injury. Joan Sastre is sidelined with a partial tear to the internal lateral ligament of his right knee.

ALBA is missing two of its premier perimeter scorers with both Marcus Eriksson and Simone Fontecchio sidelined. Their absences open the doors for Niels Giffey, Louis Olinde and Jonas Mattisseck to have bigger roles. That trio must produce at both ends and help stretch the floor with their three-point shooting to boost ALBA’s chances to return home with a win.

ALBA will be also without forward Lorenz Brenneke for the next few weeks due to ankle injury.

basketball prediction Tip: Under 167.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 03/12/2020, 08:30 CET, subject to change)

CSKA Moscow – Panathinaikos

  • CSKA holds a 21-16 advantage in the EuroLeague against Panathinaikos.

These Turkish Airlines EuroLeague superpowers meet again. CSKA Moscow (7-5) and Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (3-9) combine for 14 continental crowns. CSKA has won its last two games after losing four of its previous five. Will Clyburn (16.0 ppg.) is its top scorer, followed by Toko Shengelia (15.1 ppg.) and Johannes Voigtmann (11.4 ppg.). Panathinaikos comes off a win that stopped a five-game losing streak. Daryl Macon Jr. (16.4 ppg.), Georgios Papagiannis (8.8 ppg., 7.9 rpg.) and Ioannis Papapetrou (12.1 ppg.) are its pillars this season. This is a rematch of the 2007 and 2009 EuroLeague championship games.

basketball prediction  Tip: CSKA Under 86.5 at 1.80 with bet365

Fenerbahce – Monaco

  • This is the first official meeting between the two clubs.

Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul hosts AS Monaco on Thursday in a game between two teams coming off Round 12 heartbreakers and looking to end losing streaks. Fenerbahce (3-9) has lost four in a row, including an 84-89 decision at Anadolu Efes Istanbul last week after leading by as many as 12 in the fourth quarter. Marial Shayok scored a personal best 18 points in defeat. Monaco (5-7) has lost its last three games. On Friday, it was felled by French league foe LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, 84-85, on a desperation three at the buzzer. Paris Lee scored a career-high 20 points in the losing effort. This game marks the first meeting between the sides.

basketball prediction  Tip: Over 156.5 at 1.86 with bet365

Zalgiris – Baskonia

  • Baskonia has a 14-10 lead in EuroLeague games against Zalgiris.

Last-placed Zalgiris Kaunas will try to move up in the standings when it hosts Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Thursday evening. Zalgiris (2-10) had won back-to-back games – its first victories of the season – in Rounds 9 and 10 before getting spanked by 23 points in Barcelona last week. Tau Webster had his best game since joining Zalgiris with 13 points and 4 assists in the loss. Baskonia (4-8) has lost six of its last seven games, including a 60-88 drubbing at the hands of Real Madrid last week. Simone Fontecchio showed signs of breaking out of a slump with 14 points and 7 rebounds. The game is the only time this season that Baskonia’s two Lithuanian players, Rokas Giedraitis and Tadas Sedekerskis, will get to play in their homeland.

basketball prediction  Tip: 1 (-3.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Bayern – Villeurbanne

  • The home team has won each of the four games between these two teams.

FC Bayern Munich will seek its third straight home win when it hosts feisty LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne on Thursday. Bayern (5-7) came up short 77-74 last week in Moscow despite 28 points from Darrun Hilliard, but has a winning record at home and knows how important turning Audi Dome into a fortress is for its playoff hopes. ASVEL (7-5) edged AS Monaco on a mid-court heave at the buzzer by William Howard in Round 12 to end a three-game losing streak. Coach TJ Parker’s squad is 3-2 on the road this season. This will be the fifth meeting between the sides; the home team has won the previous four by double digits each time.

basketball prediction  Tip: 2 (+7.5) at 1.86 with bet365

Real Madrid – Maccabi

  • Real leads the all-time series 38-24 and holds an 18-11 advantage in games this century.

It is the most repeated showdown in European competition. Real Madrid (10-2) and Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (7-5) face each other for the 63rd time. Real has a 38-24 record against Maccabi and beat the Israeli champion in the 1980 EuroLeague championship game. Maccabi avenged that loss in the 2014 final. Real is on a five-game winning streak. Walter Tavares (12.6 ppg., 7.1 rpg., 1.7 bpg.), Guerschon Yabusele (12.3 ppg., 4.4 rpg.) and Vincent Poirier (7.6 ppg., 6.4 rpg.) are leading the team this season. Scottie Wilbekin (14.8 ppg.), James Nunnally (13.4 ppg.) and Ante Zizic (12.8 ppg.) are Maccabi’s top scorers.

Crvena Zvezda – Unics Kazan

  • The record between these two clubs is 1-1 from the season 2016-17.

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade will look to assert its home-court advantage when UNICS Kazan, led by former Zvezda playmaker Lorenzo Brown, comes to the Serbian capital for a Friday night clash. Zvezda (4-7) lost twice on the road in the two-round week, but is 3-1 at home this season. UNICS (6-5) has struggled thus far on the road with just one win in five games. However, Coach Perasovic’s men have won three straight games, including an 85-71 victory over ALBA Berlin on Friday, in which Lorenzo Brown erupted for 21 points and 9 assists to earn MVP of the Round honors. The playmaker made his EuroLeague debut with Zvezda in 2019-20 and this will be his first time back in front of fans since he left.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.15 with bet365

Monaco – Villeurbanne

  • This is the first-ever official meeting between the two clubs.

The two giants of French basketball meet on Friday when AS Monaco hosts LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne. These clubs have won every French championship since 2017. Both teams are coming off tough weeks and looking to put an end to their respective slides. Monaco (5-6) has lost its last two games, both times by double-digit margins. However, those games were on the road – in Tel Aviv and Istanbul. Monaco is 4-1 at home this season. ASVEL (6-5) has lost three in a row, including two home games last week by double-digit margins. ASVEL is 2-2 on the road so far this season. This will be the teams’ first meeting on the continental stage since the 1975 Korac Cup.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 159.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Milano – Olympiacos

  • Olympiacos leads 14-7 in games between these sides this century.

AX Armani Exchange Milan will put its perfect home record on the line on Friday against Olympiacos Piraeus, which is winless on the road thus far. Milan (8-3) comes off a tough two-round week in which it lost twice in Russia to fall out of a share of first place. However, it will be comfortable back at Mediolanum Forum, where the team is 6-0 this season – including wins over all three of last season’s other Final Four teams. Olympiacos (7-4) split its games last week, faltering late at Anadolu Efes Istanbul before jumping on Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv early to win at home. The Reds are 0-4 on the road so far this season. These teams have split their last eight meetings and the home team has won the last four.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+5.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Barcelona – Zalgiris

  • Barcelona has dominated this series, holding a 24-5 lead this century, including 5 straight wins in the last games.

Two teams from opposite ends of the standings meet when FC Barcelona hosts Zalgiris Kaunas on Friday. The game will see Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius and players Brandon Davies, Nigel Hayes-Davis and Rokas Jokubaitis face their former team. Barcelona has won three games in a row and is tied for first place with a 9-2 record. Zalgiris is tied for last at 2-9, but won twice last week, besting Panathinaikos OPAP Athens and Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul at home. That said, the Lithuanian champs are winless on the road in six tries this season – and have lost 12 straight road games dating back to last season. Barcelona is 5-0 at home this season and has won the last meetings with Zalgiris.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+12.5)) at 2.05 with bet365

CSKA Moscow – Bayern

  • Bayern has won only one of eight games against CSKA this century, but it was their last meeting in Moscow.

Two teams in the middle of the pack will clash in Round 12’s first game when CSKA Moscow hosts FC Bayern Munich. CSKA (6-5) split its games in the two-round week, finishing it with a 74-80 road win at Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz in which Johannes Voigtmann and Will Clyburn scored 16 points apiece. Bayern (5-6) won both games last week at home; it bested Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul by 8 points behind 22 points from Vladimir Lucic and then beat Panathinaikos OPAP Athens by 3 with Darrun Hilliard scoring 20. The game will mark Hilliard’s first trip back to Moscow after spending the past two seasons with CSKA. Bayern center Othello Hunter also played two seasons for CSKA in the past and helped the team win the EuroLeague in 2019.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 155.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Fenerbahce – Anadolu Efes

  • The road team has won the last three games in the Istanbul derby. Fenerbahce is 11-5 up in the Euroleague.

The first Istanbul derby of the 2021-22 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season will take place on Thursday when Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul. The game catches the two teams in opposite runs of form. While Fenerbahce (3-8) has lost three straight games, Efes (5-6) has reeled off three successive wins. Fenerbahce comes off an 86-75 loss at Zalgiris Kaunas in which Nando De Colo scored 17 points and dished 5 assists. Efes trounced AS Monaco 98-77 on Friday behind 17 points and a career-high 7 assists from Rodrigue Beaubois. The two teams last met in the Turkish League last month when Fenerbahce routed Efes 90-68 at home behind 17 points from Devin Booker. Their last three EuroLeague clashes have gone the way of the visitors, with Efes winning two of those.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-3.5) at 1.86 with bet365

Panathinaikos – Zenit

  • Zenit swept Panathinaikos last season. Panathinaikos did the same a year before that.

Panathinaikos OPAP Athens looks to end a five-game slide when it hosts red-hot Zenit St Petersburg, which has won five in a row. Panathinaikos (2-9) came up short in Germany on Thursday against FC Bayern Munich despite 12 points and 6 assists from Daryl Macon Jr., who has been the Greens’ most dangerous offensive weapon this season. Zenit (8-3) outlasted AX Armani Exchange Milan in Round 11 behind 17 points from Jordan Mickey. Zenit head coach Xavi Pascual returns to the Greek capital, where he spent parts of three seasons as Panathinaikos coach between 2016 and 2018. Last season under Pascual, Zenit defeated Panathinaikos twice by an average margin of victory of 20.5 points.

basketball prediction Tip: Panathinaikos Over 73.5 at 1.83 with bet365

ALBA Berlin – Maccabi

  • Maccabi has a 13-1 record in games against ALBA this century.

ALBA Berlin will look to snap a three-game losing streak when the German champs host Israeli champion Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv. ALBA (3-8) is 1-4 at home this season and lost its most recent home game by 27 points to Anadolu Efes Istanbul in Round 9. Maccabi (7-4) had won five in a row before dropping two of its last three. Both of those losses came on the road, where Maccabi is 2-3 this season. Maccabi comes off its worst loss of the season, a 17-point defeat at the hands of Olympiacos Piraeus. ALBA boasts two players who know Maccabi well; swingman Yovel Zoosman spent the past four seasons with the club and point guard Tamir Blatt, whose father David coached Maccabi to the 2014 EuroLeague title, spent the last three seasons with Maccabi’s archrival Hapoel Jerusalem.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-4.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Baskonia – Real Madrid

  • Baskonia holds a 7-5 edge over Real in their head-to-head EuroLeague games.

Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz comes off an eventful week and will now host Spanish League foe Real Madrid in its third straight home game. Baskonia (4-7) made a coaching change last week and it resulted in a Round 10 victory over Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade before it suffered a narrow loss to CSKA Moscow in Round 11. With more time to introduce plans from Coach Never Spahija, Baskonia should be looking more dangerous from game to game. Real (9-2) has won four games in a row and is now tied for first place. Last week Los Blancos bested LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in France before topping Zvezda at home. These teams met most recently at the end of October in the Spanish League and Real strolled to a 65-83 road win courtesy of Vincent Poirier’s double-double. The same Poirier spent two seasons in Vitoria-Gasteiz and was a member of the All-EuroLeague Team in 2018-19 as a Baskonia player.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-5.5) at 1.95 with bet365
