CSKA Moscow v Fenerbahce

This clash of perennial title contenders is always must-see basketball and it is heightened this week as both teams are hungrier than ever for wins. CSKA has lost two of its last three games and Coach Itoudis is still working on the lineup with center Kosta Koufos having made his debut last week and Final Four MVP WIll Clyburn out for the season. Fenerbahce is off to its worst start of the decade at 2-5, but claimed an uplifting victory over FC Bayern Munich last week. The game will be Nando De Colo’s first against his former club after playing the past five season with CSKA and leading the team to a pair of EuroLeague titles.

Scoring in the paint has been a CSKA strength and a Fenerbahce weakness this season and it is one the hosts would be wise to capitalize on. CSKA is among the leaders in both two-point shooting (54.7%) and opponents two-point shooting (48.5%). Fenerbahce is among the worst in both categories (47.8% shooting, 53.5% for opponents). If Kyle Hines and co. can continue that way, it will help CSKA.

Fenerbahce has been getting beaten on the boards and must put a stop to that, especially in a tough road game against CSKA (37.0 rpg.). Despite the presence of Jan Vesely, Derrick Williams, Ahmet Duverioglu and Joffrey Lauvergne, Fenerbahce is last with 28.6 rebounds per game. Stopping CSKA from getting easy second-chance baskets and turning some of those defensive boards into transition points would benefit Fenerbahce greatly.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+5.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Crvena Zvezda – Villeurbanne

In a showdown of teams who love playing at home, Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade hosts LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne on Friday. Both of Zvezda’s wins this season have come at home over playoff contenders and it will be easy to gain its third triumph. ASVEL has also taken down some of the giants at home, but is winless in its three road games. However, ASVEL should be in high spirits after edging defending champion CSKA Moscow last week.

Zvezda has committed the second-most turnovers in the league so far this season (14.9 per game), but not surprisingly has limited that number to 12.5 in its two wins. It’s, of course, a team effort, but if Lorenzo Brown, Filip Covic and co. can keep that number down, it will help the Serbian champs.

ASVEL needs an offensive breakthrough and the talent is there to make it happen. With fine shooters and great athletes, ASVEL has what it takes for a big scoring night. Edwin Jackson, Charles Kahudi, David Lighty and Antione Diot have the most experience and could lead the way. If ASVEL can get into the 80s in points, it would have Zvezda off balance.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-6.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Olympiacos – Zalgiris

Olympiacos Piraeus (2-5) will try to put an end to a two-game slide when it hosts Zalgiris Kaunas (3-4) on Friday. The Reds are looking to regroup after losing both of those games by sizeable margins after stunning defending champion CSKA Moscow on the road in Round 5. Zalgiris had a marquee road win of its own by beating Fenerbahce in Istanbul in Round 6, but lost last week at home to FC Barcelona. Zalgiris has won four straight and seven of its last eight games against Olympiacos.

The Reds have averaged 86.5 points per game in victories, but just 65.8 points in defeats. That sums up the situation and Olympiacos must find its rhythm quickly against Zalgiris’s aggressiveness to have a good chance. The team has no shortage of scoring weapons both in the paint and from the perimeter, but its 29.9% three-point shooting is worst in the league. More threes at better accuracy from the likes of Kevin Punter, Brandon Paul and Vassilis Spanoulis would be a great start.

Zalgiris is 3-1 this season when it has held opponents to less than 80 points and that is surely an attainable goal considering that Olympiacos has averaged a mere 71.7 points per game. On the offensive end, Zalgiris must cut down on its 14.3 turnovers per game.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.10 with bet365
(Price correct at 15/11/2019, 10:00 CET, could have changed)

Valencia – Bayern

Two teams in need of wins will square off in Round 8 when Valencia Basket (1-6) hosts FC Bayern Munich (3-4) on Friday at La Fonteta. Valencia went back to the losing path last week against Panathinaikos just when it had managed to win its first game. The Spanish team needs wins soon if it wants to stay in the race. Bayern is faring quite better, but the German champs lost the last two games in a row, so they will travel to Valencia to try to get to the winning path again.

Valencia goes back home for another game in which it desperately needs a win. The only win so far arrived at La Fonteta, so the team will rely on its fans again to give them that extra edge. On paper, Bayern arrives with better numbers about everywhere, so the hosts will have to focus and prepare the game well. Valencia has the manpower, the talent and the experience, but needs players like Maurice N’Dour, Aaron Dornekamp and Guillem Vives to step up in offense to contribute with their points. Valencia has the fifth weakest offense in the league, a position it is not used to.

Coming into the game, it looks like Bayern has a bit of an upper hand over Valencia. The net difference between the offense and the defense of both teams is a +11 for Bayern. The guests also score more efficiently from the field and, even if not by a long shot, have better average PIR. If Bayern focuses on Dubljevic, Jordan Loyd and Fernando San Emeterio, it will have an eye on almost half of the point production of the hosts, so defense will be, again, key for Bayern to get back on the winning track where it was befor dropping two in a row.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 156.0 points at 1.90 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

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.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.90
