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

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

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Wednesday matches



Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with a double-round week and the battle for the playoffs is taking one of its final turns. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games. Here’s a rundown of what’s coming up.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Maccabi – Fenerbahce

The excellent home record of Maccabi (13-13) will be put to the test when high-flying Fenerbahce (16-9) pays a visit, hoping to maintain its top-four position with a fourth straight victory. The return to fitness of Nemanja Bjelica, who finally played his first game of the season in last week’s rout of Virtus, has boosted the Turkish team. Tyler Dorsey, another new face at Fenerbahce, could make his debut in familiar surroundings after debuting in the competition with two strong seasons at Maccabi between 2019 and 2021.

2 at 1.90

Crvena Zvezda – Anadolu Efes

Efes (13-12) is looking to extend its lead in the table with a third straight road win and inflict more pain on host Zvezda (11-15), which is in a slump after losing six of its last seven games. Facundo Campazzo will make his home EuroLeague debut for Zvezda, and his ability to overcome Elijah Bryant’s strong defensive game will be crucial. In the absence of injured superstar Vasilije Micic, the Efes guard has stepped up big time, averaging 13.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in the last three games.

Under 159.5 at 1.90

Monaco – Panathinaikos

Monaco (16-10) will look to keep the pressure on the current top four by defeating Panathinaikos (8-18), which is looking to snap a five-game losing streak. A key matchup will take place between two potent shooters facing off against their former teams: Mike James, who played for Panathinaikos from 2016 to 2018, leads Monaco with 17.0 points per game, while Dwayne Bacon, who spent last season with Monaco, leads the Greens with 17.7 points.

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Tuesday matches



Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with a double-round week and the battle for the playoffs is taking one of its final turns. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games. Here’s a rundown of what’s coming up.

Yes! These are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Alba Berlin – Zalgiris

With a trip to Berlin to play bottom-placed ALBA, struggling Zalgiris (13-13) will seek to improve its poor away form (7-19). The Lithuanian team has dropped out of the top eight after losing four consecutive road games, and it desperately needs to increase its offensive output after failing to reach 80 points in any of the previous eight games. ALBA should be an ideal opponent in that quest: the German team has allowed the most points, 85.3 per game, and was defeated 88-81 in November when the teams played in Kaunas.

Over 161.5 at 1.90

Olympiacos – Barcelona

As Olympiacos (18-8) welcomes Barcelona, a big battle between second and third could easily serve as a prelude to a Final Four meeting (18-8). Olympiacos is looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat at Milan last week, while Barcelona is on a five-game winning streak and has the added incentive of regaining the head-to-head edge after losing 70-80 at home to the Reds earlier this season. The game’s rhythm will be important: Olympiacos has the most assists in the league, 22.0 per game, while Barcelona’s defence permits only 13.4 assists per game.

2 (+3.5) at 1.90

Valencia – Milano

Milan’s (10-15) late surge up the standings will be put to the test with a journey to playoff-chasing Valencia (13-13), which is desperate to avenge a thrashing at Baskonia last week. Milan’s four-game winning stretch – all at home – was highlighted by a strong run of form from Billy Baron, who averaged 13.3 points and 3.5 assists during that time. After permitting at least 91 points in three of the last four games, three of which ended in defeat, it’s no surprise that Valencia will prioritise defence.

Over 158.5 at 1.90

Virtus Bologna – Partizan

Virtus (12-14) will seek to get back on track against a Partizan (14-12) team that is aiming not only for the playoffs but also for a spot in the top four. Partizan’s potent offence, which averages 84.8 points per game, is salivating at the thought of facing Virtus, which allowed 104 points to Fenerbahce last week. Virtus, in particular, allowed the Turkish team to hit 20 three-pointers in that game and now faces Aleksa Avramovic, who hit 5 three-pointers in last week’s victory over ALBA, so better perimeter defence is critical for Virtus.

Partizan Over 82.5 at 1.83

Real Madrid – Baskonia

Real (18-7) will seek for their sixth consecutive win by defeating visiting Baskonia (14-12), who could not be more confident of pulling off an upset after blasting 114 points against Valencia last week. Real Madrid is expected to be without Edy Tavares, who limped off the court in the team’s last EuroLeague game on Friday, so Baskonia may attempt to gain physical supremacy after grabbing an incredible 43 rebounds against Valencia. Guerschon Yabusele, on the other hand, is expected to return for Real at an appropriate time given the probable absence of Tavares.

Under 168.5 at 1.90

Bayern – Villeurbanne

Bayern (10-16) will try to keep its slim playoff hopes alive against an ASVEL (8-18) side with little time to climb the standings. The return to fitness of team leader Vladimir Lucic, who appeared for the first time since Round 10 in last week’s win over Zvezda and instantly delivered a big performance with 20 points on 8-for-10 shooting from the field, has been a tremendous boost for Bayern. ASVEL has only lost by one point to Efes and four points to Real in its last two games, so its confidence should be intact for the journey to Bavaria.

Winning margin 7-way: 1-5 points at 2.90
