Euroleague Preview & Tips

More vital wins will be up for grabs as the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague heads into Round 11, featuring two of the competition’s highest-scoring teams going head to head and a Game of the Week between two teams looking to break into the all-important top eight.

On a sole Wednesday game Brose Bamberg made it to 3-8 with a win in Tel Aviv versus Maccabi, proving they are not a team to sit in the bottom of the table. They ended a 5-game losing streak and look into the future from a different perspective.

Thursday’s matches

Fenerbahce Istanbul (7-3) will aim to maintain its three-game winning streak by overcoming guest Crvena Zvezda (4-6). Zvezda, which has scored exactly 79 points in three of its last four games, has the lowest overall index rating of all teams, averaging 73.4 per game. But its strong defensive play is helped by the league’s highest tally of steals (7.4 per game). The contest could come down to shooting efficiency: only Zvezda (48.34%) has converted a lower percentage of two-point tries than Fenerbahce (48.98%). The game is split on 151.5 points and Under 151.5 would be our pick at 1.90 with bet365.

In Italy, expect offensive fireworks as the league’s top-scoring team, CSKA Moscow (9-1), visits the fourth-highest in that category, EA7 Armani Milan (4-6). The Russian team has averaged 93.3 points per game on the back of the competition’s best three-point (43.78%) conversion rate and second-best free throw percentage (81.48%). Milan, which has lost three games in a row, is dominant in the other scoring category, having hit the second-highest number of two-pointers in the competition – 23.6 per game. The hosts look in a bit of a mess with players ready to leave and the away win with a small handicap (-3.5) looks like the logical choice at 1.90.

Real Madrid (7-3) will be gunning for its fourth consecutive home win against an in-form Zalgiris Kaunas (4-6) which has won three of its last four games. Madrid’s efficiency is reflected in the league’s best assist-turnover ratio (184.4%), contributing to the second-highest scoring offense in the competition with an average of 89.5 points per game. Zalgiris will look to gain the physical edge, coming into the game ranked joint second in rebounding, with its 36.9 boards per game slightly better than Madrid’s average of 36.5. This should be another high scoring game and bet365 offers Over 170.5 points at 1.90.

Friday’s matches

The Game of the Week comes from Istanbul where high-scoring Anadolu Efes (5-5) and visiting FC Barcelona Lassa (5-5) will look to break into the top half of the standings. Efes, gunning for its fourth straight win at the Abdi Ipekci Arena, tops the league in rebounds (38.3 per game) and ranks third in scoring (87.4 points per game). The visitors have scored fewer points than any other team (70.6 per game) but also have the best defense, allowing an average of just 73.7 points. Under 158.5 points is our pick here in an expected tight tie.

Another team on 5-5, Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens, will attempt to deny a first road win for visiting Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (3-7). Expect plenty of exciting action around the rim – these teams have blocked more shots than anyone else, with only Galatasaray (4.2 per game) rejecting more than Panathinaikos (4.1 per game). They have also committed the fewest number of turnovers, with Panathinaikos conceding possession just 10.5 times per game, and Galatasaray turning it over slightly more, 10.7 per game. This will probably be a home win but we prefer the Over 157.5 points than the handicap on -9.5.

In Piraeus, Olympiacos (6-4) will seek to stay in the playoff places against a visit from Unics Kazan (3-7), which set a new club record by scoring 100 points last week. The two teams are tied for the fewest number of assists in the league, just 15.5 per game, but it should be a fierce battle under the boards with Olympiacos ranked second in defensive rebounds (26.1 per game) while Unics is placed third in offensive rebounds (11.9 per game). The 7.5 points handicap to the away team might prove too much for the hosts to cover.

And finally, two teams with big ambitions meet in Spain as Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (6-4) welcome a Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul (5-5) side aiming to end a three-game losing streak. Baskonia has claimed more defensive rebounds than anyone else (26.3 per game) while Darussafaka is ranked next-to-last in that category (21.3 per game). But the visiting team has the clear edge in long-range shooting, tied for second in the league with 9.4 triples per game, with Baskonia sinking an average of just 7.5 three-pointers. No bet here. Anything could happen…

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 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 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.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.90
