Khimki – Valencia

Valencia Basket faces an important road trip to Russia to take on Khimki Moscow Region on Friday. Valencia (15-14) is on the outside edge of the playoff zone looking in and must keep adding victories to climb into the top eight. Valencia has lost eight of its last nine road games. Despite playing at times with a skeleton squad Khimki (3-25), has played spirited basketball and upset Real Madrid just two weeks ago, so it cannot be taken lightly.

Khimki is the worst-shooting team in the league, with a true-shooting percentage of 46.5%, which is last in the league. The team has been outrebounded by 5.5 rebounds per game. Khimki needs a stronger presence on the glass and better shooting numbers to improve its chances this week.

  • Devin Booker has missed the last eight games.
  • Stefan Jovic has not played in the last seven games.
  • Janis Timma has not played in the last four games.

Valencia is second in the league in assists (20.1 apg.) and third in scoring (81.7 ppg.). Khimki’s defense has allowed the most points (90.9 ppg.), assists (21.8 apg.), rebounds (36.5 rpg.) and steals (8.0 spg.) this season. If Valencia controls the rebounds, runs in transition and moves the ball well to get open shots, it could add a valuable road win.

Panathinaikos – Crvena Zvezda

After getting back on the winning track last week, Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (10-17) faces one of its last chances to stay alive in the playoff race when it welcomes already-eliminated Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (8-21) on Friday in Round 30. Panathinaikos still has two pending games in its schedule that were postponed to mid-April. In the Greens’ last game, they snapped a three-game slide against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, 81-63. Zvezda snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 92-81 triumph over Khimki Moscow Region.

The end of the road is right in front of Panathinaikos and it’s up to the hosts to keep making that road a bit longer game after game. Such will be the case against Zvezda. The Greens play against the worst offense in the league (74.3 ppg.) and Zvezda owns the second-weakest numbers under the glass (30.4 rpg.). The key will be to try to improve their league-worst figures from beyond the arc (34.6%) while at the same time trying to avoid Zvezda going to the stripe as much as possible (81.6%).

  • Nemanja Nedovic has missed the last five games.

Zvezda is playing to improve as a team and playing for pride. Already eliminated from the playoffs, there’s no pressure for the guests, who can play the role of spoiler if they win in Athens. To do that, the Zvezda will have to try to get more open options from the field, as it has the worst numbers in two-point shooting (49.0%). Panathinaikos also has the fourth-worst defense in the league, so making that offense work, especially trying to increase its league-worst 14.6 assists per game, will be essential for Zvezda to try to turn its last win into a streak.

  • Quino Colom has missed the last six games.

Bayern – Efes

Bayern Munich lost more easily at home to Basconia than the final 71-78 shows and fell to 18-11 in the EuroLeague. They have a lot of chances to catch the EuroLeague playoffs, however the matches that follow are crucial and that is why coach Trinkieri will definitely want to see an improved image of his team. The Bavarians will once again have experienced James Gist in their lineup, while nothing else unexpected has happened in the last hours. At 11-3 stands their home record, they score 78.7 points on average and defensively get a very good score with allowing 77.4 points per game.

  • Nihad Dedovic has missed the team’s last five games.
  • Robin Amaize has missed the last 12 games.

Efes on the other hand looks… scary! That 90-66 in Tel Aviv against Maccabi a few hours ago was the 8th consecutive positive result for the Turks, who during this period prevail with an average difference of 21 points of their opponents! There are no problems with absences for Ergin Ataman’s team, which has celebrated 9 times in 13 away games in the EuroLeague and its statistical image is excellent, as it has the second best attack with 82.7 points per game and the third best defense with 75.7 points on average.

Milano – Barcelona

This is a battle between the top two teams in the standings. AX Armani Exchange Milan (19-10) can punch its playoff ticket with a victory combined with other results. Kevin Punter (15.0 ppg.), Shavon Shields (13.6 ppg.) and Sergio Rodriguez (10.3 ppg., 4.4 apg.) are leading the team right now. FC Barcelona (21-8) is the only team already qualified for the playoffs, led by Nikola Mirotic (16.5 ppg., 6.1 rpg.), Cory Higgins (12.7 ppg.) and Brandon Davies (11.7 ppg.).

With Delaney injured, Punter and Rodriguez share the point guard duties and dominating the game tempo should be important to deactivate Calathes. Milan ranks third in scoring (81.7 ppg.) despite being 15th in assists (16.2 apg.), which means that many points come from one-on-one opportunities. Milan is the runaway leader with the fewest turnovers (10.9 per game) and Barcelona is last (14.8), in what should be one of the keys to this game, as turnovers often lead to easy points.

  • Malcolm Delaney has missed the last three games and is set to be sidelined for at least four weeks after undergoing an arthroscopic cleaning of his left knee.

Barcelona allows a league-low 73.8 points per game and is the only team holding opponents to under 50% from two-point range (48.2%). Keeping those numbers should be critical against a team with effective scorers such as Shields, Gigi Datome and Hines. On offense, getting its three-point shooters – Alex Abrines and Kyle Kuric – involved should be really important to generate space for Mirotic, Davies and Pierre Oriola to hit mid-range jumpers or score in the paint.

  • Victor Claver returned to action in Round 27 for the first time since Round 3.

Do not get confused with 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.

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.

  • Alternative Spread (not the main handicap difference provided by the bookmaker).

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.
