Khimki – Valencia

Valencia Basket faces an important road trip to Russia to take on Khimki Moscow Region on Friday. Valencia (15-14) is on the outside edge of the playoff zone looking in and must keep adding victories to climb into the top eight. Valencia has lost eight of its last nine road games. Despite playing at times with a skeleton squad Khimki (3-25), has played spirited basketball and upset Real Madrid just two weeks ago, so it cannot be taken lightly.

Khimki is the worst-shooting team in the league, with a true-shooting percentage of 46.5%, which is last in the league. The team has been outrebounded by 5.5 rebounds per game. Khimki needs a stronger presence on the glass and better shooting numbers to improve its chances this week.

  • Devin Booker has missed the last eight games.
  • Stefan Jovic has not played in the last seven games.
  • Janis Timma has not played in the last four games.

Valencia is second in the league in assists (20.1 apg.) and third in scoring (81.7 ppg.). Khimki’s defense has allowed the most points (90.9 ppg.), assists (21.8 apg.), rebounds (36.5 rpg.) and steals (8.0 spg.) this season. If Valencia controls the rebounds, runs in transition and moves the ball well to get open shots, it could add a valuable road win.

Panathinaikos – Crvena Zvezda

After getting back on the winning track last week, Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (10-17) faces one of its last chances to stay alive in the playoff race when it welcomes already-eliminated Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (8-21) on Friday in Round 30. Panathinaikos still has two pending games in its schedule that were postponed to mid-April. In the Greens’ last game, they snapped a three-game slide against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, 81-63. Zvezda snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 92-81 triumph over Khimki Moscow Region.

The end of the road is right in front of Panathinaikos and it’s up to the hosts to keep making that road a bit longer game after game. Such will be the case against Zvezda. The Greens play against the worst offense in the league (74.3 ppg.) and Zvezda owns the second-weakest numbers under the glass (30.4 rpg.). The key will be to try to improve their league-worst figures from beyond the arc (34.6%) while at the same time trying to avoid Zvezda going to the stripe as much as possible (81.6%).

  • Nemanja Nedovic has missed the last five games.

Zvezda is playing to improve as a team and playing for pride. Already eliminated from the playoffs, there’s no pressure for the guests, who can play the role of spoiler if they win in Athens. To do that, the Zvezda will have to try to get more open options from the field, as it has the worst numbers in two-point shooting (49.0%). Panathinaikos also has the fourth-worst defense in the league, so making that offense work, especially trying to increase its league-worst 14.6 assists per game, will be essential for Zvezda to try to turn its last win into a streak.

  • Quino Colom has missed the last six games.

Bayern – Efes

Bayern Munich lost more easily at home to Basconia than the final 71-78 shows and fell to 18-11 in the EuroLeague. They have a lot of chances to catch the EuroLeague playoffs, however the matches that follow are crucial and that is why coach Trinkieri will definitely want to see an improved image of his team. The Bavarians will once again have experienced James Gist in their lineup, while nothing else unexpected has happened in the last hours. At 11-3 stands their home record, they score 78.7 points on average and defensively get a very good score with allowing 77.4 points per game.

  • Nihad Dedovic has missed the team’s last five games.
  • Robin Amaize has missed the last 12 games.

Efes on the other hand looks… scary! That 90-66 in Tel Aviv against Maccabi a few hours ago was the 8th consecutive positive result for the Turks, who during this period prevail with an average difference of 21 points of their opponents! There are no problems with absences for Ergin Ataman’s team, which has celebrated 9 times in 13 away games in the EuroLeague and its statistical image is excellent, as it has the second best attack with 82.7 points per game and the third best defense with 75.7 points on average.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 160.5 at 1.95 with bet365
( Euroleague predictions with correct price at 19/03/2021, 08:40 CET. Odds subject to change )

Milano – Barcelona

This is a battle between the top two teams in the standings. AX Armani Exchange Milan (19-10) can punch its playoff ticket with a victory combined with other results. Kevin Punter (15.0 ppg.), Shavon Shields (13.6 ppg.) and Sergio Rodriguez (10.3 ppg., 4.4 apg.) are leading the team right now. FC Barcelona (21-8) is the only team already qualified for the playoffs, led by Nikola Mirotic (16.5 ppg., 6.1 rpg.), Cory Higgins (12.7 ppg.) and Brandon Davies (11.7 ppg.).

With Delaney injured, Punter and Rodriguez share the point guard duties and dominating the game tempo should be important to deactivate Calathes. Milan ranks third in scoring (81.7 ppg.) despite being 15th in assists (16.2 apg.), which means that many points come from one-on-one opportunities. Milan is the runaway leader with the fewest turnovers (10.9 per game) and Barcelona is last (14.8), in what should be one of the keys to this game, as turnovers often lead to easy points.

  • Malcolm Delaney has missed the last three games and is set to be sidelined for at least four weeks after undergoing an arthroscopic cleaning of his left knee.

Barcelona allows a league-low 73.8 points per game and is the only team holding opponents to under 50% from two-point range (48.2%). Keeping those numbers should be critical against a team with effective scorers such as Shields, Gigi Datome and Hines. On offense, getting its three-point shooters – Alex Abrines and Kyle Kuric – involved should be really important to generate space for Mirotic, Davies and Pierre Oriola to hit mid-range jumpers or score in the paint.

  • Victor Claver returned to action in Round 27 for the first time since Round 3.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague continues. We have almost completed the first third of the regular season and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Cvena Zvezda – Virtus Bologna

Friday night’s early tipoff at Aleksandar Nikolic Hall features a matchup between Crvena Zvezda (4-6) and Virtus Bologna (4-6), both of which are in same wins but different states of form.

Zvezda has won its previous three EuroLeague games after hiring Dusko Ivanovic as their head coach, defeating ASVEL Villeurbanne, ALBA Berlin, and Maccabi. Both point guard Vildoza and fellow guard Nedovic, who previously played for Coach Ivanovic at Baskonia, have begun to have a bigger influence. Curiously, only two players reached double digits in points in the victory over Maccabi: Nedovic had 12 and Martin had 11. Zvezda will probably have to work hard for every point it scores when facing a strong defence like Virtus, which has the fourth-best ranking in the EuroLeague on this end of the floor.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.15

Fenerbahce – Real Madrid

Both teams are in good shape going into their matchup at Ulker Sports and Event Hall: Fenerbahce (9-1) has just lost one game all season while Real Madrid (7-3) has won five consecutive.

Fenerbahce made a number of roster adjustments during the offseason, including the hiring of Dimitris Itoudis as the new head coach, and ever since, the team has been on fire. In addition to having the greatest record in the EuroLeague this season, Fenerbahce also has the second-highest ratings on attack and defence. Injury has kept Pierre out of the previous two games for Fenerbahce, but Hayes-Davis has filled in admirably. In two contests, Hayes-Davis actually led the club in scoring with 21 points against Monaco and 22 points at EA7 Milan. Due to an injury, Wilbekin will miss the Real Madrid game, but Los Blancos have already seen how much trouble they can cause when Hayes-Davis, Calathes, Motley, and Guduric are on the field.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+1.5) at 1.95

Zalgiris – Panathinaikos

At Zalgirio Arena, Zalgiris (6-4) will play host to Panathinaikos (4-6), who has a 4-6 record and is coming off back-to-back victories in the EuroLeague double-round week.

Zalgiris is now 4-0 this season overall at Zalgirio Arena and has won four of its previous five games. Zalgiris are a very dangerous possibility in this year’s EuroLeague thanks to the never-say-die spirit that first-year head coach Maksvytis has fostered in his players. Evans, Smits, and club captain Ulanovas, who have all contributed significantly over the past few games, will be motivated to keep Zalgiris’s home winning streak intact when Panathinaikos visits.

basketball prediction Tip: Under 160.5 at 1.90

Bayern Munich – Maccabi

When it hosts Maccabi, Bayern Munich will try to get back on track. Before losing by one point in Monaco last week, Bayern (3-7) had won three of its previous four games. After losing in a thrilling match to Crvena Zvezda on Thursday in Belgrade, Maccabi (5-5) is still looking for its first road victory of the year. Additionally, Maccabi’s most recent victory in Munich was in March 2019.

Two former Bayern stars will travel back to Munich for the game. In 2021, Baldwin helped Bayern to within one shot of the Final Four, and Hilliard led Bayern in scoring last season with 13.7 points per game. Together, they and Lorenzo Brown form a lethal Maccabi backcourt. Baldwin (15.6 ppg, 4.5 apg) ranks second on the squad in both categories, while Brown (16.3 ppg) leads Maccabi in both. Brown is also tied for third in the league in assists (6.4 apg).

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Thursday matches

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague continues. We have almost completed the first third of the regular season and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Alba Berlin – Barcelona

On Thursday night, Round 11 will feature a matchup between two teams at different ends of the spectrum as ALBA Berlin (3-7) hosts Barcelona (7-3). The 13th meeting between these two clubs in the EuroLeague this century will take place, with Barca winning 11 of the previous 12. Despite Jaleen Smith’s 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in a Round 10 loss to Olympiacos, ALBA has lost seven straight games since going 3-0 to open the season. With Jan Vesely scoring 18 points, Barcelona has won five of its previous six games, including its most recent victory over Baskonia, 96-84.

Few people would disagree that the reality is what it appears to be on paper. With the exception of turnovers and shooting percentages across the board, ALBA outperforms Barcelona in all significant statistical categories. Although they continue to lead the league in total rebounds (37.2) and assists (22.0), the hosts’ recent success has not been reflected in victories. The third-best league defence will force ALBA to put their offensive fireworks to the test. ALBA will also need to play tight on defence and work to reduce the 81.9 points it gives up per game. In order to try and end ALBA’s losing streak, players like Blatt, Olinde, and Sikma will have to stand up and help Smith in seizing the reins.

basketball prediction Tip: Under 160.5 at 1.90

Anadolu Efes – Olympiacos

At Sinan Erdem Sports Hall, Anadolu Efes (5-5) takes on Olympiacos (7-3) in a highly anticipated matchup. For the first time since the EuroLeague semifinals of last year, the teams square off. In that match, Vasilije Micic’s buzzer-beating three-pointer helped Efes defeat Olympiacos 74-77. Efes ultimately won the EuroLeague championship. Kostas Sloukas’ game-winning shot helped Olympiacos defeat Efes 87-85 in overtime earlier in the 2021–22 campaign. Expect a fantastic game with all the big characters still on their respective teams.

Efes is now on a three-game winning streak and may be in its finest shape of the year. Micic (18.2 ppg, 6.4 apg, 21.7) and Clyburn (20.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 22.3 PIR) have been the team’s leaders thus far this season, respectively placing first and second in terms of minutes played per game. In recent games, Efes has displayed a more diversified approach: Pleiss scored 13 points against EA7 Milan in Round 9, and Beaubois scored 19 points and had a PIR of 30 against Virtus Bologna in Round 10. With only 14.7 assists per night, Efes is tied for 15th in the league, thus there is room for growth during the season.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-4.5) at 1.95

Asvel Villeurbanne – Monaco

The Astroaballe will host the rematch between ASVEL Villeurbanne (3-7) and Monaco, two very familiar teams (7-3). Last season, these groups exchanged wins on the road in the EuroLeague. After Monaco defeated ASVEL 75-100 shortly after, ASVEL narrowly defeated Monaco 84-85 on a long buzzer-beating triple by Howard. Both teams advanced to the French League finals, when ASVEL defeated Monaco with a score of 3-2 after a tense playoff series.

Currently on a five-game losing streak in the EuroLeague, ASVEL is having trouble. Its primary pillars up until this point have been De Colo (12.3 ppg., 53.1% 3FG, 3.7 apg., 14.0 PIR), Mathews (10.8 ppg.), and Fall (10.5 ppg., 65.1% 2FG, 7.6 rpg., 14.4 PIR). Since ASVEL has only shot two points at 45.4% of its last five games, attacking the rim for simple baskets should be a priority for ASVEL when facing a run-and-gun team.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.87

Baskonia – Milano

Baskonia (5-5) welcomes EA7 Milan (7-3) in what should be an intriguing tactical matchup. Despite the fact that their initial encounter took place in 2009, this is their 22nd rendezvous. With a record of 11-10 against Baskonia, Milan won both of their meetings last year: 64-78 at Buesa Arena and 89-78 at Mediolanum Forum. Be prepared for a fierce basketball match.

Baskonia recently suffered a road setback to Barcelona but has played well at home this year, going 4-1 with Olympiacos Piraeus being the lone defeat. The home team leader in scoring (99.2 ppg) and PIR (113.2) is Baskonia, who also shoots the ball well (62.7% 2FG, 44.2% 2FG) and averages about 10 more points per game than any other team. Few teams can win at Buesa Arena if Baskonia maintains its regular home game numbers and plays at full throttle.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.90

Partizan – Valencia

When Partizan (4-6) hosts Valencia, there will be a match between two teams with the same record (4-6). LeDay put up a performance of 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists, but Partizan’s trip to Spain last week ended in a defeat to Real Madrid. Although Valencia lost to Zalgiris at home, 76-80, despite Chris Jones’ 19 points and 7 assists, they also lost to Real previous week. Partizan and Valencia will be playing one other for the first time ever in the EuroLeague.

Partizan will use this as one of its main weapons against Valencia because it leads the league in three-point shooting accuracy at 41.1%. To increase their average of 14.7 assists, the hosts must watch the visitors’ aggressive defence (7.1 spg.) and work to improve ball circulation. Valencia ranks bottom in average blocks (1.3), thus there may be a chance for the hosts to earn their fifth victory in the paint.

basketball prediction Tip: Partizan Over 85.5 at 1.83

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague regular season continues. We have learnt quite a lot of things about this years contestants after a few exciting games and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Monaco – Bayern Munich

When Monaco (6-3) hosts Bayern Munich (3-6) for Round 10, two teams with different fortunes earlier in the week will clash. Monaco has a spotless 2-0 record versus Bayern so far in their EuroLeague meetings. In Round 9, Fenerbahce defeated Monaco 93-96 despite a significant comeback in the fourth quarter. Monaco’s top scorer and rebounder was Jordan Loyd (18 points). On the other hand, Bayern defeated ASVEL, 74-75, for its third victory of the year, powered by 13 points from Lucic.

Monaco, which had an erratic start to the season, has recently had some ups and downs and will attempt to prevent a double-round home sweep against Bayern. The stats suggest that Monaco takes care of the ball better than any other club, as they lead the league in steals per game (8.8) and lowest turnovers (9.8). Since Bayern performs better from the free-throw line and also knows how to preserve their glass, the hosts will want to prevent a close game. The hosts are performing well overall and boast one of the league’s most lethal backcourts with Loyd, Mike James, and Okobo. They must keep an eye out for Winston and Weiler-Babb in particular.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 156.5 at 1.90

Panathinaikos – Asvel Villeurbanne

Panathinaikos (3-6) meets ASVEL Villeurbanne (3-6), two teams whose respective games on Wednesday ended in dramatic way, prepare for another matchup just 48 hours later.

Derrick Williams shone with 26 points for Panathinaikos in their recent 88-85 overtime victory over Virtus Bologna. Late in the extra period, Williams hit a critical three-pointer to give the Greens a decisive lead. Wolters scored 18 points, Lee had 15, and Panathinaikos hit 13 of them with a 44.8% accuracy rate. In this home game, the Greens seek to maintain their impressive shooting form.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-6.5) at 1.90

Barcelona – Baskonia

At Palau Blaugrana, Barcelona (6-3) will welcome Baskonia (5-4) in a rematch of two familiar teams. Laprovittola (15.2 ppg), Sanli (8.9 ppg), and Satoransky, three former Baskonia guards, helped Barca win four of its most recent five games (7.8 ppg.). Following a 20-point victory over Zalgiris at home, Baskonia hopes to maintain its momentum. The leading scorer for Baskonia has been Howard (15.6 ppg), who is followed by Thompson (12.6 ppg) and Kotsar (11.8 ppg.).

Barca averages just 14.6 free throw attempts each game, which is not a lot. Barca has also connected on 36.9% of its downtown shots. Now that Kuric, a talented three-point shooter, is back with the squad, that percentage ought to increase. Kuric provides Barca with yet another tool to deploy against Marinkovic and Giedraitis in the backcourt. To balance its offence, Barca has to locate Tobey and Vesely inside. Vesely and Sanli must be active on defence against Costello, a large player with limitless mobility who has just improved his physical condition.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 161.5 at 1.90

Virtus Bologna – Anadolu Efes

In a sold-out arena, Virtus Bologna (4-5) will welcome the two-time defending champions Anadolu Efes (4-5) in an effort to defend its home court. The champions of the previous season’s EuroCup and EuroLeague square off, with Virtus and Efes meeting for the first time in a competitive match in more than 20 years.

Regarding the outcomes of their earlier games this week, the two sides enter this match in diametrically opposed moods. After suffering a heartbreaking 88-85 overtime loss to Panathinaikos on Wednesday, Virtus returns home. Early in the game, Virtus had a substantial lead and needed to come back to force OT. Prior to losing, it led for the majority of the extra session again. Last year’s EuroCup MVP Jaiteh shone with a career-high 20 points and 10 rebounds.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+2.5) at 1.90

Valencia – Zalgiris

When Zalgiris Kaunas (5-4) visits Valencia (4-5), both clubs will be looking to complete this double-round with at least one victory. This is the tenth meeting between these two clubs in the EuroLeague, with Valencia holding a 6-3 advantage overall. Despite Van Rossom’s 17 points and 3 assists on Tuesday, Valencia lost to Real Madrid 73-80 at home. Despite Ulanovas scoring 18 points, Zalgiris lost to Baskonia by a score of 93-73 on Wednesday.

In most statistics, both teams’ numbers appear to be very close on paper. For instance, Valencia scores 0.3 more points per game than the next team. The average PIR difference is also in Zalgiris’ favour. In terms of shooting accuracy across the board, Zalgiris outperforms Valencia, while Valencia does better in terms of assists, steals, and turnovers. One of these two teams will be able to successfully complete the double-round week on Friday night, so it appears that everything will come down to the little things.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other Result (1-5 points difference) at 2.60
