Euroleague Basketball Tips

Euro League basketball predictions appear under each mini game preview.

Zalgiris – Villeurbanne

Zalgiris will try to use home support to keep its momentum going when it hosts ASVEL on Friday. After opening the seasons with a pair of losses, Zalgiris bounced back with a 13-point victory over Real Madrid a week ago and now will be looking to build on it with the French champions in town. ASVEL, however, is coming off its worst EuroLeague loss this century, a 41-point drubbing to the hands of FC Bayern Munich, and will surely want to leave a better road impression this time around.

Sometimes it seems so simple, but cutting down on turnovers while sharing the ball on offense did wonders for Zalgiris last week. After dishing 23 combined assists in two losses to open the season, Zalgiris had 22 assists in a win against Real. In that same game, Zalgiris committed just 8 turnovers, a massive improvement after averaging 15.0 in the first two games. The same will be a recipe in this one for Coach Jasikevicius’ side with ASVEL in town.

After getting blown out last week in Munich, it is going back to basics for ASVEL. Which means, solidifying the defense, taking care of the ball and getting after the rebounds. ASVEL averaged 13.5 offensive boards in two home wins to start the season, but then just managed 6 total offensive boards against Bayern. In part, that was due to 18 turnovers. It is close to impossible to win on the road with those numbers, and ASVEL will have to make sure it takes care of the ball and control the boards to get a chance to grab its third win in four games.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+9.5) at 1.90 with bet365

ALBA Berlin – CSKA Moscow

There could be offensive fireworks in the German capital when ALBA welcomes CSKA on Friday. The two teams enter this contest as the EuroLeague’s scoring co-leaders, each averaging 91.3 points. ALBA also dishes 24.0 assists, and has scored at least 84 points in each of its three games so far, but will probably need an offensive tool it has as it now faces a perennial offensive juggernaut in the undefeated reigning champions CSKA.

Even though it is facing a high-scoring offense like CSKA’s, there no other way for ALBA than to stay true to itself. ALBA needs to keep moving the ball, keep running in transition, and keep taking the open looks it is getting. That’s what has made ALBA so dangerous, and even though CSKA is a team able to punish even the slightest mistakes, there should be no stepping away from the style of play that got ALBA where it is today.

It is not often that CSKA faces a team that is able to outscore them in a shootout, but this will be one of those occasions. So, CSKA will need to continue to protect the ball, as it ranks second best with just 93 turnovers per game, and continue to do the job on the offensive glass where CSKA is pulling down 14.0 rebounds, third best in the league.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 171.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Milano – Fenerbahce

Milan will try to extend one streak and snap another when it hosts Fenerbahce on Friday. Milan is on a two-game winning streak after losing a season opener, and will try to make it three in a row this season. On the other hand, Fenerbahce has lost both of its first two road games this season, and after finally getting its first win of the season on home floor, not it hopes to open its account away from home, as well.

Milan has been going down low quite a lot in the first three games, but not always with great percentages as the team has the third-lowest two-point accuracy (45.1%). Milan makes up for some of it in offensive rebounding, however, Fenerbahce is one of the best teams allowing the fourth-fewest offensive boards (9.3 per game). It will be a big battle inside, and it will be important for Milan to control it.

Fenerbahce had a slower start to the season, especially from the offensive standpoint, but the indications are that Coach Obradovic men have been improving, and will want to continue that trend in Milan. What Fenerbahce will need to going into another road game is to keep a high energy level on defense. In addition, Fenerbahce has been good at forcing turnovers this season, and running in transition would be a perfect recipe to ease the pressure off the half-court offense until it starts clicking again.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+4.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 25/10/2019, 09:45 CET, could have changed)

Baskonia – Olympiacos

Baskonia plays its first game at home after three consecutive showdowns on the road, and in it will face a familiar opponent – Olympiacos and Baskonia are set to face each other for the 39th time since the turn of the Millenium. The Reds come off an overtime home loss against Zenit St Petersburg and will look to bounce back right away. Expect a noisy, spectacular basketball atmosphere in what will be the first EuroLeague game in Buesa Arena since 2019 Final Four, and the first EuroLeague home game for Baskonia since April 26.

Baskonia is struggling from beyond the arc (27.9%) and from the free-throw line (62.1%), ranking 17th in each category, so improving those numbers will be mandatory. To do that, Baskonia must get its best shooters – Matt Janning, Luca Vildoza, Nik Stauskas – involved on offense, generating good shots for them. Baskonia must use its bench depth at the center position – Youssoupha Fall, Michael Eric and Achille Polonara, to stop Milutinov down low, which will be one of the biggest keys to this exciting showdown.

Olympiacos ranks second overall in offensive rebounds (14.7 orpg.) mainly because of Milutinov, who pulled down more than half of those (7.7 orpg.) to lead the player standings. Olympiacos ranks third in turnovers (14.7 per game) and just 13th in assists (14.3 ppg.). Taking better care of the ball will be mandatory against a strong defensive team like Baskonia. Olympiacos needs a strong effort from Augustine Rubit, Milutinov, and Georgios Printezis to stop Toko Shengelia and Fall around the basket.

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
