Euroleague Basketball Tips

Euro League basketball predictions appear under each mini game preview.

Find all 64 scenarios for the last day of Euroleague’s regular season here.

CSKA Moscow – Baskonia

Round 30 begins in the Russian capital with CSKA hosting Baskonia. CSKA has already locked up second place in the standings and cannot move up to first or down to third regardless of other results. Accordingly, the main goal for Coach Dimitris Itoudis’s men will be to stretch their winning streak to four games before the playoffs. Baskonia leads the hunt for one of the remaining playoff spots and with a win will clinch sixth place and a date with Real Madrid in the quarterfinals. A Baskonia loss will complicate matters with possibilities of tiebreakers that could see Coach Perasovic’s side fall as far back as ninth place.

The Baskonia defense this season has allowed an average of 79.6 points per game – and 84.6 on the road. CSKA has won its last 10 in a row in which it has scored at least 80 and is 19-2 overall this season with that many points, including 9-0 at home. With little pressure on CSKA, if Coach Itoudis’s men can play their normal offensive game and reach their average of 86.9 points, the hosts will be hard to beat.

One area where Baskonia has a clear advantage over CSKA is frontcourt size; CSKA plays with undersized centers and tall stretch 4s. With Vincent Poirier (2.13 meters), Johannes Voigtmann (2.14) and Ilimane Diop (2.11), Baskonia will almost always have the biggest man on the floor and with Toko Shengelia back, it the visitors will be even stronger. If Coach Perosavic can turn that advantage into points, it will help the Baskonia cause greatly.

Tip: 2 (+6.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 04/04/2019, 02:00 CET)

Efes – Milano

Efes will close down its regular season campaign at home when it hosts Milan. With Efes already locked into fourth place – no results can bump it up to third or down to fifth – Coach Ergin Ataman’s men are in playoff preparation mode with a clash looming against FC Barcelona Lassa in the next stage. Milan must urgently snap a three-game slide to have a chance at reaching the playoffs. The Italian champs will be in a good position to do that with a win, but will still need other results to go their way. However, a loss ends any chance of Milan advancing.

Efes boasts one of the most efficient offenses in the EuroLeague and coupes that with a lineup that features some top-notch defenders. Milan has allowed the second-most points in the league this season (86.7 ppg.). Efes is 12-0 this season when it has scored at least 87 points and Milan is 5-9 this season when it allows that many. Scoring 87 – for an Efes team already averaging 84.9 per game – may be the magic number on Thursday.

In Milan’s lowest-scoring game of the season, it scored 66 points and managed to beat Olympiacos Piraeus in Round 26. In the team’s next three games, Milan averaged 86.7 points on offense, but lost all three due to a porous defense. In a tense Round 30 game, Milan may be better slowing the pace initially. Finding a way to control the pace and keep Efes guessing would be big for Coach Pianigiani’s men.

Tip: Under 174.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 04/04/2019, 02:00 CET)

Panathinaikos – Buducnost

After missing in its first chance last week, Panathinaikos will try to claim its last chance to reach the playoffs when it hosts Buducnost. The Greek champs can finish anywhere from sixth place until 10th, but control their own destiny and will be at least seventh with a win – and sixth if they win and KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz loses. That latter scenario would set up a repeat of last season’s playoff with Panathinaikos facing Real Madrid. However, if the Greens lose, they can find themselves in a complicated tiebreak scenario with as many as six teams with 15 wins.

A high-scoring game is in Panathinaikos’s favor. Not only do the Greens average nearly 5 points more per game than Buducnost (79.4 to 74.6 ppg.), but Panathinaikos is 9-0 this season when it has scored at least 85 points. Buducnost has allowed an average of 84.9 points per game this season.

Many of Buducnost’s biggest wins this season have come thanks to excellent three-point shooting, which is perhaps Panathinaikos’s biggest weakness offensively. With Goga Bitadze’s presence to protect the rim, the visitors can put pressure on the Panathinaikos shooters and if Buducnost is knocking down its threes, it could spell a Round 30 upset.

Tip: 1 (-16.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 04/04/2019, 02:00 CET)

Real – Zalgiris

Two of last season’s Final Four sides meet in their regular season finales when Madrid takes on Zalgiris in the Spanish capital. While the defending champs can use this game as playoff preparation – Madrid will finish the regular season in third place regardless of other games – Zalgiris is on a league-best five-game winning streak and still fighting for a playoff berth. Zalgiris is thoroughly dependent on other results, but will better its chances significantly with a victory. Still, Zalgiris can win and finish outside the playoff zone, or it can lose this game and wind up eighth.

Los Blancos rank third in the EuroLeague in scoring this season with 85.9 points per game. Coach Pablo Laso’s side had reached 90 points 11 times and won in each of those game. On the other hand, Zalgiris does not fare as well in high-scoring affairs and is 2-9 when it has surrendered at least 80 points. If Sergio Llull and Facu Campazzo can dictate a fast-paced tempo, Madrid will be favored to win its 12th straight game over Zalgiris.

The Zalgiris frontline has done well this season in limiting opponents to just 30.4 rebounds per game, but it has allowed many points in the paint. Opponents have averaged 54.1% shooting on two-pointers and this week will face some of the most dangerous scorers in the paint between Walter Tavares (76.1% 2FG) and Gustavo Ayon (68.5%). If the Zalgiris big men can control the rebounds and limit Madrid’s scoring in the paint, the Lithuanian champs will have better chances to win in Madrid.

Tip: 2 at 3.00 with bet365

Champions League tips tpday

Liverpool vs Real Madrid play in the Champions League final.

Who’s likely to start, who might be left out, and who is unavailable? We have brought together all the information available, so check out our Champions League final predictions today.

Saturday, 28/05/2022

  • Stade de France (80,698), Paris
  • Referee: Clement Turpin (France)
  • Real have won 13 Champions League titles (including the European Champions Cup) in 16 appearances in the final.
  • Liverpool have 6 Champions League titles (including the European Champions Cup) in 9 appearances in the final.

Road to the final

Liverpool wrapped up their on paper “tough group” (Atletico, Porto, AC Milan) with 6/6 wins. They then eliminated Inter, Benfica and Villarreal successively, winning on all 3 occasions and scoring 2+ goals on the road, while at home they only won against the Spaniards, drew with the Portuguese and were beaten by the Italians (0-2) in their only defeat in the competition this season.

Real Madrid cruised through the group stage (Inter, Sheriff, Shakhtar) with a 5-0-1 record. Their only loss was a shocking 1-2 defeat to Sheriff in Madrid. But Ancelotti’s team eliminated three championship contenders in… epic fashion. Against Paris Saint-Germain, they needed Benzema’s hat-trick in Madrid (3-1). The Frenchman scored 3 more goals in London against Chelsea (1-3) before his team beat the English side in extra time in the second leg. This was followed by two incredible games against Manchester City, losing 4-3 away, but scoring two goals after the 90 minutes in the replay and winning in extra time (3-1).

Liverpool vs Real Madrid possible line-ups

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keïta; Salah, Mané, Luis Díaz

Real Madrid: Courtois; Carvajal, Éder Militão, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić; Valverde, Benzema, Vinícius Júnior

Liverpool vs Real Madrid prediction

The odds don’t show how tightly contested the final can be, with Liverpool given as favourites by all bookmakers, but Real are the side that has linked their name with European success. Liverpool may be more tired from their unsuccessful battle to win the Premier League, and in two finals this season they have drawn 0-0 with Chelsea and won the titles on penalties.

On the other hand, Real have had a chance to refuel over the last month and are expected to be fresh, so they offset the disadvantage of the Reds’ greater physicality.

Whew… tough to predict. But we’ll go with the “2-3 goals” bet as our main prediction, with the most likely score being 1-1. Finally, we think 2.37 on the Spanish side to win is too generous to pass up.

Football bullet Tip 1: 2-3 goals at 2.00

Football bullet Tip 2: Correct Score 1-1 at 7.00

Football bullet Tip 3: Real Madrid to win the Trophy at 2.37

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final fot in the Final Four will be between Real Madrid and Anadolu Efes. Check our expert Euroleague predictions.

Our EuroLeague Final 4 tips appear under each mini game preview.

Real Madrid vs Efes Anadolu

  • Real Madrid has 26 wins against Efes, that has 13.

Anadolu Efes and Real Madrid will meet for the first time in the EuroLeague Championship Game, but they have played many important games recently, including the 2021 play-offs series, which Efes won and then went on to win the title in the Final Four a few weeks later.

In the current campaign, Real and Efes have met twice. Real trounced Efes 82-69 in their season opener, with newcomers Heurtel and Yabusele each scoring 18 points. Efes defeated Real 93-90 in Round 31 almost six months later, with Micic scoring 29 points.

The championship game in 2022 will be the latest chapter in this developing rivalry. It’s a defining moment for both, and only the victor will be fulfilled.

The final is completely unpredictable; we like Real’s victory at the odds of 2.00, but we will also predict two players’ special bets. Real Madrid’s Causeur proved in the semi-final that he is a big game player, and his job will be even more essential with Williams-Goss out, while Yabusele is testing his hand a lot, and the odds on the market of Over 1.5 three-point attempts are worth it from every angle!

basketball prediction Tip: Real Madrid win at 2.00

basketball prediction Tip 2: Causer Over 8.5 points at 1.90

basketball prediction Tip 3: Yabusele Over 1.5 three-point shot (scored) at 2.15

Euroleague basketball predictions The Euroleague Final 4 is here! Check the semifinals previews and our expert Euroleague predictions.

Our EuroLeague Final 4 tips appear under each mini game preview.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

This season, Barcelona was one of the stronger rebounding teams in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, but it couldn’t match Real Madrid’s dominance on the boards.

Sarunas Jasikevicius’ team has conceded the fewest rebounds in the league this season, 31.2 per game, and outrebounded opponents by 3.2 per game. It had the third-most defensive rebounds (24.3 per game) and the fourth-most total rebounds (34.4 rpg.).

Real’s resurgent supremacy elevated it to a new level. Los Blancos dominated the league in rebounds (38.3 per game), defence boards (26.8 per game), and offensive boards (11.6 per game). It gave up the fewest rebounds (31.7 per game) and outrebounded opponents by an incredible 6.6 per game.

When Real met Barcelona this season, such was not the case. When the two teams played in Round 14, Barcelona won 36-29. After that, Barca won the battle of the boards 39-36 in Round 26. In El Clasico this season, Barcelona averaged 5 more boards per game than their opponents.

Matching those great defensive efforts in the semifinals could be the difference between Barcelona and the EuroLeague’s top rebounding club.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-3.5) at 1.90

Olympiacos vs Efes

Several figures stand out from Olympiacos and Efes’s prior games this season that could be worth watching in their semifinal clash.

Even though the teams won a game each, there was little else that was equal. Efes had 18 turnovers in each game, whilst the Reds had 26. Efes not only had more possessions, but they also shot substantially better, hitting 62.0%of their two-point attempts. Both teams tried 71 twos, but Olympiacos shot 53.5%, which was 6 less. Efes also had the best three-point shooting squad, making 20 of them (33.9%). The Reds converted 17 attempts at 30.9%.

Each game was won by the club that won the battle of the boards, with Olympiacos gathering 6 more rebounds across the two games. Even in the Round 26 game, which Efes lost, it outscored Olympiacos 90-105 in the performance index rating.

Olympiacos did get to the foul line more frequently, even if it did not shoot as well. The Reds converted 29 of 36 foul shots (80.6%), while Efes converted 25 of 27. (92.6%). Efes also had a superior season free-throw shooting percentage (82.1 percent -75.8%). However, if Olympiacos continues to draw a lot of fouls and puts Efes in foul trouble, that might be a game changer.
