Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 7 – 08/11/2019




Euroleague Basketball Tips

Euro League basketball predictions appear under each mini game preview.

Fenerbahce – Bayern

Fenerbahce looks to snap a three-game slide when it hosts Bayern, which is targeting its first road victory. Despite its poor start, Fenerbahce is 1-1 at home and its lone loss in Istanbul saw it blow a late lead. Bayern started the previous week with an uplifting victory over Real Madrid before getting blown out by 33 at KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz.

Fenerbahce has relied heavily on lead leading scorer Nando De Colo (22.3 ppg.) to carry the offense with no other player averaging double figures in points. Coach Obradovic’s side must change that, especially with the talent level of the players on the roster. A balanced attack with four scorers in double figures would put pressure on what has been a very good Bayern defense.

Bayern has been outrebounded by a total of 27 rebounds and has shot 10 for 31 (32.2%) on threes in its two road games so far. If the German champs can improve their performance on the glass and raise their three-point numbers – Bayern is 22 for 47 (46.8%) from downtown in wins, Coach Dejan Radonjic’s side may be in position for a big road win.

Zalgiris – Barcelona

Two of the teams that went to the EuroLeague playoffs last season meet again. Barcelona comes off its first loss in the current EuroLeague season. Meanwhile, Zalgiris grabbed its first road victory in epic fashion, rallying from a seven-point deficit in the final 51 seconds to go past Fenerbahce. Zach LeDay (13.2 ppg.) is Zalgiris’s top scorer until now, followed by Marius Grigonis (12.7 ppg.) and Thomas Walkup (8.2 ppg.). Nikola Mirotic (18.3 ppg., 5.8 rpg.), Cory Higgins (11.2 ppg.) and Kyle Kuric (11.0 ppg.) have been Barcelona’s main scoring pillars until now.

Other than being backed by an extraordinary atmosphere, Zalgiris has to be more effective on offense. It ranks 14th in two-point shooting percentage (47.8%) and ties for second place in turnovers (15.0 per game). Zalgiris ties for first place in offensive rebounds (12.8 orpg.) and that will be the biggest key for the Lithuanian powerhouse – be aggressive all 40 minutes, limit turnovers and find better scoring options around the basket.

Marius Grigonis is questionable after injuring his foot last week in Istanbul. Rokas Jokubaitis is back after the wrist-injury and already had some practices with the team.

Barcelona is allowing just 72.7 points per game, limiting opponents to hit just 45.1% of its two-point shots and 33.9& of its attempts from beyond the arc. Barcelona needs to keep playing good defense, reaching out and locking the defensive board (10.3 orpg. allowed). It needs Mirotic and Davies to make the difference down low, as well as Malcolm Delaney and Adam Hanga to put pressure on Zalgiris’s point guards Alex Perez and Lukas Lekavicius.

Victor Claver will miss 4 to 6 weeks with injury, but Pau Ribas travels with the team to Kaunas, even if his playing will be a game-time decision.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+4.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 08/11/2019, 11:00 CET, could have changed)

Panathinaikos – Valencia

Panathinaikos (3-3) and Valencia (1-5) will try to build on their confidence-boosting victories in the last round. Panathinaikos, which is coming off a big win over Efes, has scored at least 86 points in each of its last three games, and now will try to keep the trend going against Valencia which battled to its first win of the season against ASVEL in the last round.

Panathinaikos has Nick Calathes in charge to run the offense, but for the Greens to continue to have success, they need other players to continue sharing the ball, too. No team has had more assists in the past three games than Panathinaikos’ 67, which is compared to just 40 in the first three games of the season. It resulted in the Greens averaging 87.0 points over that span, second best in the EuroLeague. Panathinaikos will need to continue that trend to help itself get to a fourth win of the season.

Valencia has struggled mightily shooting the ball from long range, ranking the bottom of the league at just 28.2%. However, in each of the two games last week, Valencia shot better than 30%, including 8-for-21 (38.1%) in a win over ASVEL. Valencia is yet to make double-digit three pointers in a game this season, and OAKA would be a good place to start and improve its chances to registered team’s first road win of this campaign.

basketball prediction Tip: Panathinaikos win 10-13 points margin at 6.00 with bet365
(Price correct at 08/11/2019, 11:00 CET, could have changed)

Villeurbanne – CSKA Moscow

The final tip-off of Round 7 will take place at Astroballe where LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne will look to keep its perfect home record intact when it faces the reigning EuroLeague champion, CSKA Moscow. It will be a clash of styles as ASVEL boasts one of the competition’ premier defenses, which has allowed only 68.0 points in its home games, while CSKA is tied for the league-lead in scoring with 87.0 points per game.

Even with its typically strong defense, ASVEL will need to activate its scoring and rebounding touch against CSKA. For the former, it would be an ideal time for a big game from Edwin Jackson or Rihards Lomazs. On the boards, Amine Noua and Jean Livio-Charles will need to step up. Better shooting and limiting CSKA on the glass are vital aspects for ASVEL this week.

Antoine Diot and Adreian Payne won’t be available against CSKA.

CSKA continues to be a team in transition, especially after losing Final Four MVP Will Clyburn for the season. So far, newcomers Mike James and Darrun Hilliard have stamped their names on the offense and Kyle Hines and Nikita KUrbanov have kept the defense running. In CSKA’s lone defeat, it shot poorly from outside (26.9% 3FG), allowed 14 offensive rebounds (and 15 second-chance points) and committed 12 turnovers. Those are three things that if CSKA controls, it should be in good shape.

basketball prediction Tip: Under 157.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Prediction, Injuries, Suspensions and Possible Line-ups



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 Final, Predictions



Euroleague FInal Four 2022

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 Final 4, Semifinals, Predictions



Euroleague FInal Four 2022

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

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.
