Zenit – Khmki

Zenit St Petersburg will look to continue its strong start to the season when it hosts Khimki Moscow Region on Tuesday evening in a battle of Russian sides. Zenit comes off a 53-66 road win at LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in which its defense was a tough as ever. Khimki’s Round 8 game was postponed and Coach Rimas Kurtinaitis’s men will be eager to capture a valuable road win.

It all starts with defense for Zenit, which is keeping teams to a league-low 66.8 points per game. Part of that has been controlling the tempo, since Zenit’s 69.8 points per game are also a league-low. Kevin Pangos runs the Zenit offense, but his 4.3 turnovers per game must be cut down for the team to become more efficient, which is a necessity in low-scoring games. Strong play at the point guard spot is a key for Zenit.

With one of the game’s elite scorers in Alexey Shved (19.0 ppg, 10.7 apg.) and a quick and athletic roster, Khimki likes to run when possible. However, the team has made only 50.6% of its two-pointers and 33.5% of threes while committing the third most turnovers per game (15.7) and allowing opponents a league-high 9.1 steals. The recipe for success on the road against an elite defense is more efficiency – fewer turnovers that lead to easy baskets and taking better shots.

Stefan Jovic has not played yet this season due to an ankle injury. Sergey Monia has missed the last four games.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+2.5) at 1.86 with bet365

Efes – Bayern

In a showdown between two of the hottest teams in the league, Anadolu Efes Istanbul hosts FC Bayern Munich on Tuesday. Efes has reeled off three straight wins – including two on the road – and now looks to capture its second home win of the season. Second-place Bayern is 3-1 on the road this season and has won its last two games. A victory over the team that had the best record last season would be another confidence boost for Coach Trinchieri’s side.

Efes has found success through its guards in recent years, whether that be Shane Larkin, Vasilije Micic, Rodrigue Beaubois or Krunoslav Simon. This season, the team’s traditional elite three-point shooting has dipped to 37.2%, while it has allowed opponents to make 41.9% of threes. Efes will need to play better all-around defence against a Bayern team, which has no shortage of one-on-one scorers, headlined by Wade Baldwin IV.

Shane Larkin and Bryant Dunson both missed the team’s games in Rounds 7 and 8.

If Efes arrives without the injured Bryant Dunston, Bayern can make the most of what is already a significant rebounding advantage. With Jalen Reynolds (6.9 rpg.) leading the way, Bayern has outrebounded opponents by an average of 6.4 per game, while Efes has been outrebounded by 4.7 per game. If Bayern can maximize that difference, especially on the offensive glass where its 11.5 per game are second-most in the league, the visitors will put themselves in a good spot to score another road win.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 159.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris – CSKA Moscow

Two teams with identical records meet on Tuesday in a classic of European basketball when Zalgiris Kaunas (5-3) hosts CSKA Moscow (5-3) in the first of both teams’ two games this week. Zalgiris started strong, but has lost three of its last four games, including a blowout in Tel Aviv last week. CSKA, on the other hand, is on a three-game winning streak after a slow start.

Zalgiris seems to have entered a dark moment of the season after shining in the first rounds. The Lithuanian champion will look to get back to the winning path as soon as possible. However, CSKA boats the second-best offense in the league. Last week, CSKA missed several key players including Mike James, so it remains to be seen if he will be available for the game. The hosts average less than 30 rebounds per game, so that could be a starting point to try to gain control of the rhythm in games.

Zalgiris swingman Patricio Garino will be out of action until December after a knee operation.

CSKA is on a roll and getting better day by day after a slow start. The reigning champs are facing a team that is having doubts now, so they should try to take advantage of the situation. The visitors have some of the poorest shooting percentages in the league from the stripe and from inside the arc, so if they work on improving that aspect and with better shot selection, they will have a much bigger chance of leaving Kaunas with the win.

Baskonia – Fenerbahce

Two teams in need of wins will face each other on Tuesday when TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz hosts Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul in their first game of a double-bill week. Baskonia did not complete a comeback against CSKA Moscow last week and lost on the road while Fenerbahce got thrashed in Barcelona, so both teams will be looking to get back on the winning track.

Baskonia is playing against the third-poorest offense in the league, but Fenerbahce (73.3 ppg.) will be eager to show that what happened in Barcelona last week was an accident. Both teams are close on paper, but with Nando De Colo sidelined, the hosts have a better opportunity to snap their losing streak to Fenerbahce.

Fenerbahce returns to Spain for the second time in less than a week, with the urge to win after the severe beating suffered in Barcelona. Baskonia showed its legendary character against CSKA, but could not complete the comeback, so it will be eager to do the job against Fener. All signs point to this game being a matter of details to see who can get this bounceback win.

De Colo will be sidelined until early December with a calf muscle injury.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-2.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 17/11/2020, 08:50 CET, subject to change)

Valencia – Panathinaikos

Valencia Basket comes off a loss against FC Bayern Munich and hopes to bounce back right away at La Fonteta. Bojan Dubljevic (12.7 ppg.) has been Valencia’s top scorer until now, followed by Nikola Kalinic (11.1 ppg.) and Klemen Prepelic (10.1 ppg.). Panathinaikos OPAP Athens is on a two-game losing streak and looks for its second road victory. Nemanja Nedovic (15.6 ppg.), Ioannis Papapetrou (12.6 ppg.) and Georgios Papagiannis (8.0 ppg., 5.3 rpg., 1.5 bpg.) have been its pillars so far this season.

Valencia needs to get its big men involved, as Dubljevic and Mike Tobey are great pick-and-pop players who can take Papagiannis out of the paint with their shots from downtown. Stopping Nedovic is a priority but Valencia can rely on its top on-the-ball defender Guillem Vives to do so. Fernando San Emeterio is back, which gives Valencia more weapons to use against Howard Sant-Roos and Papapetrou at small forward. Getting Kalinic and Derrick Williams involved on offense is also a priority for the hosts.

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

Panathinaikos has been taking good care of the ball, averaging 1.47 assists per turnover, but has struggled to shoot well from beyond the arc (34.4%, 12th overall) and especially from the foul line (72.0%, 17th). Shelvin Mack gives Panathinaikos more firepower from downtown. Panathinaikos leads the EuroLeague in offensive (1.5 orpg.) and total rebounds (37.2 rpg.), and those second-chance opportunities are critical to stopping Valencia’s transition game.

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.

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.
