Euroleague Preview & Tips

The 2016-17 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Regular Season offers no breaks as Round 4 becomes the first in the history of the competition that is not the sole round played in the same week. After all the teams played on Tuesday or Wednesday, they will each either go on the road or return home from a road game for a second contest within 48 hours on either Thursday or Friday. The hectic schedule won’t allow for respite and the pressure will be mounting for the three clubs seeking their maiden victories.

Round 4 opens with a duel between Russian foes and the finalists from last season’s VTB United League, CSKA Moscow (3-0) and Unics Kazan (0-3). This will be the first meeting ever between these clubs in the EuroLeague. While CSKA brings a perfect record into the contest and a 12-game home-court winning streak, Unics has yet to win this season. It will be an interesting game as Unics coach Evgeny Pashutin and guard Evgeny Voronov face their former team, while several Russian national team mates square off.

Thursday’s second tip-off features an Istanbul derby, with Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul (2-1) seeking its first win at home and Anadolu Efes Istanbul (0-3) looking to get in the win column altogether. Between the two teams’ rosters, the game will feature half of the Turkish national team that competed at the Olympic Qualifying Tournament over the summer in the Philippines. Look for rebounding to be a key factor in this game as Darussafaka (25.7 rpg.) is ranked bottom of the league, while Efes is second-best on the offensive glass (15.7 orpg.).

In a clash of traditional rivals and Euroleague powers, EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (2-1) takes on Real Madrid (2-1). Los Blancos look to bounce back from their first loss and can be confident due to a six-game winning streak against Milan. All signs point to an offensive showdown as Milan (87 ppg.) is ranked third and Madrid (86.3 ppg.) fourth in scoring in the competition.

Thursday action closes with the showdown between Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (2-1) and Olympiacos Piraeus (2-1). The hosts have struggled so far this season with turnovers (15.7 TOpg.), which is something the Reds will surely have taken note of. Both teams are strong inside; Olympiacos (38.3 rpg.) is second in rebounding this season and Baskonia (36 rpg.) is not far behind.

The week’s second Istanbul derby start the Friday slate with Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (0-3) hosting Fenerbahce Istanbul (3-0). This will be the first meeting between the sides in the EuroLeague. It will be an interesting contest for former Fenerbahce captain Emir Preldzic, who will face hos former coach and several ex-teammates. Though Galatasaray (86.3 ppg.)has scored the fourth-point points in the league this season, it has also surrendered the most (97.3 ppg.), while Fenerbahce boasts the stingiest defense in the league with 68.7 points allowed per game.

Zalgiris Kaunas (1-2) will look to return to the win column when it hosts Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv (1-2), which comes off its first win under new head coach Rami Hadar. The game marks a return for Sonny Weems to the club when he got his European start, while Zalgiris coach Sarunas Jasikevicius faces his former team, which he led to back-to-back EuroLeague crowns in 2004 and 2005. The teams play with very different styles; Maccabi is second in the league in scoring (92.3 ppg.), while Zalgiris is second-bottom (74 ppg.), which could lead to interesting point guard matchups.

After a dramatic road win, Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens (2-1) returns home to face Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (2-1), which also comes off an uplifting result. Zvezda center Ognjen Kuzmic returns to face the club with whom he debuted in the EuroLeague just last season. The outside shot could be a key factor as the Greens are toed for the most threes through three games (31), while Zvezda’s 40% three-point accuracy is fourth-best in the competition.

The final game in Round 4 sees two teams coming off tough loses, FC Barcelona Lassa (1-2) against Brose Bamberg (1-2). Barcelona continues to battle an injury bug and may be short-handed in this game as well. Barcelona enters Round 4 ranked last in the league in scoring (68.7 ppg.) and with the second-most turnovers (15 TOpg.), which it will look to change at home. Bamberg, with blew a late double-digit lead in its last game, has committed the fewest turnovers (9 TOpg.), but is also among the bottom in offensive rebounding (7.7 orpg.), too.

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.

Get up to £100 in Bet Credits!*

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)

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions CSKA Moscow – Panathinaikos is a makeup game for rould 6 of the Euroleague.

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.

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.
