Do not get confused with basketball predictions

Bet365 and other bookmakers list the visitors in the NBA first. In LiveTipster.com we always list the home team first on our basketball predictions.

You can also check our football predictions today.

What basketball predictions do we provide?

We are confident to say that this is one of the most successful basketball prediction sites regarding the Euroleague (mainly), the EuroCup, the Basketball Champions League (by FIBA) and all major competitions in Europe (Spain ACB, Greece Basket League, Italy Serie A). But when the NBA is on, then we focus on NBA predictions.

We use a staking system that you are free to follow but it is for our own use. We normally increase the stake when we lose and decrease it when we lose.

What are the markets of our basketball predictions?

The advantage of offering basketball predictions on big games and popular leagues or tournaments is massive. There are more markets available and the information is greater and easier to reach.

However, just like in football predictions, it is better to work out which markets suit your style of play, which are you better at and try to concentrate on them.

This is what we do. We have a list of maximum 5-6 favourite markets that we usually choose from. Only in specific cases we would bet on markets out of our list and this helps in the consistency of our gaming style. It also keeps the odds within a narrow range which is great for the staking strategy we use.

So, without any further ado, our basketball predictions come from the following markets in a typical NBA or Euroleague game:

  • Money Line (home win or away win)
  • Spread (handicap points difference)
  • Total Points (Over or Under)
  • Alternative Spread (not the main handicap difference provided by the bookmaker).
  • Alternative Total Points (not the main Over or Under limit provided by the bookmaker).
  • Match Result and Total (ie. Home team to win & Over 156.5 points)
  • Winning Margin 3-way (will it be a close game, typically 1-5 points difference either way? Or will it be 6 or more and for which team?)
  • Double Result (Half Time / Full Time)

Thers is one more market that we always check and prefer for live betting and it is the following:

  • Race to 10 points
  • or Race to 20 points

These are the main markets you will see in this page. Every day we update our tips. Good luck on your picks, too. Anyway… (read below)

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.

Zenit – Panathinaikos

All eyes will be on St Petersburg, Russia, on Monday where Zenit is in position to make history when it welcomes Panathinaikos for a rescheduled Round 6 game, which is set to determine the final remaining playoff matchup. With a win, Zenit would claim eighth place in the standings and reach the EuroLeague Playoffs in its first full season in the competition, setting up a playoff date with FC Barcelona. If Panathinaikos wins, eighth place will go to Valencia Basket. Zenit is coming off an 86-69 win over Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv on Friday, while Panathinaikos has lost seven of its last nine games – and four in a row away from home – including a 93-78 defeat in Kaunas on Thursday.

Zenit needs Kevin Pangos to get the team going from the start and try to push Zenit into transition where the team thrives. After a shaky period, Zenit has been playing with a lot of confidence in the last two games. Its success starts with the team’s defense, which is one of only two in the competition that has allowed fewer than 75 points per game (74.7 ppg.). Zenit needs to pay attention to Nedovic and Mario Hezonja and make sure they do not get hot.

Panathinaikos is the second-best rebounding team in the competition (34.5 rpg.), and goes against a team that pulls down the second-fewest rebounds (30.9 rpg.). The Greens must enter this game determined to win the rebounding battle, which will be far from a small task given the matchup of Georgios Papagiannis, Dinos Mitoglou and Ben Bentil going against Arturas Gudaitis, Alex Poythress and Tarik Black.

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

Zenit – Maccabi

Zenit St Petersburg (18-14) will reach the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs with a victory if both Real Madrid (19-14) and TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (18-15) lose. It could be eliminated with a loss. Kevin Pangos (12.5 ppg.), Arturas Gudaitis (9.8 ppg.) and Billy Baron (9.6 ppg.) have been its top scorers this season. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (14-19) plays its final game in this EuroLeague season. Scottie Wilbekin (14.0 ppg.), Tyler Dorsey (11.1 ppg.) and Elijah Bryant (9.2 ppg.) have been its main pillars until now.

Zenit is one of the best defensive teams in the competition, allowing just 74.8 points per game. It has held opponents to low shooting percentages (52.4% 2FG, 35.8% 3FG). Zenit, however, forces fewer turnovers than any other team in the competition, 11.7 per night. Playing physical against Wilbekin and Chris Jones, Maccabi’s main ballhandlers, should be important in this decisive game. On offense, Pangos will run the show and Zenit must take advantage of its athletic frontcourt, led by Poythress and Thomas.

Maccabi’s motivation should never be questioned as it looks for its final EuroLeague victory of the season. The Israeli powerhouse comes off a 30-point home victory against Khimki Moscow Region and wants to wrap it up in style. On offense, Wilbekin and Dorsey should be ready to pull the trigger from downtown to make Zenit reach out and spread the floor. On defense, Zizic, Angelo Caloiaro and Oz Blayzer should expect a physical battle in the paint with extended playing time due to Othello Hunter’s absence.

  • Yovel Zoosman remains out with a knee injury.
  • Othello Hunter has not played in the last five games.
  • Omri Casspi’s participation is questionable for the regular-season finale.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-8.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 09/04/2021, 09:10 CET, subject to change)

Olympiacos – Khimki

Olympiacos Piraeus (15-18) is out of playoff contention, but wants to finish its Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season with a home victory. Sasha Vezenkov (11.2 ppg.), Kostas Sloukas (11.2 ppg.) and Shaquielle McKissic (10.8 ppg.) have been its top scorers this season. Khimki Moscow Region (4-29) looks for its first road victory since mid-November. Jordan Mickey (15.6 ppg., 5.8 rpg., 1.5 bpg.), Errick McCollum (11.4 ppg.) and Sergey Karasev (5.4 ppg.) are leading the team right now.

Olympiacos has won four of its last six games and is finishing the season strong. Vezenkov has been outstanding lately, averaging 19.5 points in those six games, so Olympiacos should keep running its offense through its versatile forward with unlimited shooting range. On defense, stopping Mickey down low should be the main priority, as Khimki tries to find him as often as possible. Boxing out and controlling the tempo through Sloukas and Vassilis Spanoulis are two of the biggest keys for the Reds.

  • Kostas Papanikolaou has missed Olympiacos’s last 18 games.
  • Hassan Martin is sidelined with a knee injury.

Khimki was outrebounded 45-34 against Maccabi earlier this week. It has been one of its main problems all season long; Khimki averages 30.9 rebounds and allows 36.5 boards on average. Khimki has also allowed opponents to shoot with very good percentages, especially from beyond the arc – 43.8%. If Khimki can win the battle of rebounds, it has enough talented players who can make the difference on offense plus great three-point shooters like Sergey Monia, Egor Vialtsev and Karasev to finish the season on a winning note.

  • Devin Booker has missed the last 12 games.
  • Stefan Jovic has not played in the last 11 games.
  • Janis Timma has not played in the last 8 games.
  • Jordan Mickey is sidelined with an injury.

AX Milano – Efes

AX Armani Exchange Milan hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul in what could be a preview of a playoff series. Both teams have already clinched post-season berths and Milan (20-13) can clinch home-court advantage for its best-of-five quarterfinals with a victory. Efes (22-11) will finish the regular season in either second or third place and win could, depending on other results, set up a situation where Efes is third, Milan sixth and they meet again in the playoffs. Milan has slumped to lose three of its last four games, while Efes has won 11 of its last 12 and scored in triple figures in four of those games

Though these two teams are among the best at shooting from downtown – Milan (41.3%) is second most accurate and Efes (39.7%) fourth, Milan is third-worst at two-pointers (51.6%) and Efes (57.1%) is third-best. Milan, which is also third from bottom with 16.2 assists per game, must circulate the ball better to generate good looks in the paint for Kyle Hines, Kaleb Tarczewski and Zach LeDay to balance out the team’s strong perimeter scorers.

  • Malcolm Delaney has missed the last seven games after undergoing an arthroscopic cleaning of his left knee, but should return.

Efes leads the league in scoring with 84.3 points per per game and when it controls the pace and generates points, good things happen for Coach Ergin Ataman’s charges. Efes is 19-0 this season when it has scored at least 80 points. Considering Milan is averaging 80.9 points, a high-scoring game may be in store which bodes well for the visitors.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 161.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 09/04/2021, 09:10 CET, subject to change)

Barcelona – Bayern

The final game in Round 34 – and the final regular-season game for the two participants – pits FC Barcelona against FC Bayern Munich. For top-ranked Barcelona (24-9), the game is a chance to stay in form heading into the playoff. However, for Bayern (20-13), the home-court advantage could potentially be on the table. Bayern enters Round 34 knowing that with a win and other results going its way, fourth place is a possibility. On the other hand, a loss with certain other results could drop Bayern as far as eighth, which would result in a playoff series against Barcelona.

Barcelona has an elite defense and it’s extremely efficient when shooting the ball; the team’s true-shooting percentage of 52.0% is second in the league. The team’s biggest weakness is the average of 14.7 turnovers per game it has committed. Considering how potent its attack is, every turnover represents points lost and against a Bayern team that is second in the league in steals (8.1 spg.), that is all the more so the case. Fewer turnovers strengthen Barcelona’s chances.

Stopping MVP for March Nikola Mirotic is a must for Bayern and it will rely on JaJaun Johnson and James Gist to try to get the job done. Of course, Bayern will have to do much more against the league’s best defense; Barcelona has help opponents to 73.3 points per game this season. Bayern has made the fewest threes in the league (7.3 per game) and is ranked 17th in two-point shooting (50.5%), which are numbers it must raise to improve its chances in Barcelona.

  • Nihad Dedovic has missed the team’s last nine games.
  • Robin Amaize has missed the last 16 games.
