Euroleague Preview & Tips

Round 18 of the Regular Season provides a series of must-win match-ups in the race for the playoffs, including a legendary coach facing his former team and a big battle between the two teams currently placed third and fourth in the standings.

Thursday’s matches

The action starts in Russia, where CSKA Moscow (13-4) will attempt to maintain its return to form against Brose Bamberg (7-10). Last week saw first-placed and top-scoring CSKA reach treble figures for the third time this season, while Bamberg was held to a season-low 58 points in defeat. It could be a shoot-out, because these are the two most efficient offensive teams in the competition, with CSKA’s league-best true shooting percentage of 53% closely followed by Bamberg’s 51%. This could prove a hard encounter for the hosts and we back the away win with  a handicap of +13.5 points at 1.90 on bet365.

In Istanbul, Fenerbahce (10-7) coach Zeljko Obradovic will welcome former team Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens (10-7) to break their tie for fifth place. Panathinaikos would like a low-scoring game – the Greek team has the league’s third-best defense, allowing just 74.3 points per game, while Fenerbahce is the third-lowest scorer with an average of 75.8 points. But Panathinaikos could struggle if it doesn’t shed its status as the competition’s worst free-throw shooting team (71.7%). We back the away win with  a handicap of +6.5 points at 1.90.

Crvena Zvezda MTS Belgrade (9-8) will attempt to maintain its outstanding form by claiming its fifth consecutive victory with a trip to Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv (6-11). Zvezda won by 25 when the teams met a month ago, but Maccabi has become much more competitive since then, with four of its last five games being decided by no more than five points. Maccabi has the league’s third-best true shooting percentage (50.2%) and will need that efficiency against a Zvezda team which allows the second fewest number of points per game (73.6). Allow us a No Bet here.

The league’s basement dwellers go head to head as EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (4-13) aim to snap a 10-game losing streak against Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (5-12). Not surprisingly, these two teams have conceded more points than anyone else, with Milan allowing 87.8 points per game and Galatasaray 85.3. Both have some cause for optimism: Galatasaray is ranked first in blocked shots (3.82 per game), while Milan is third in two-pointers made (22.2 per game). Another No Bet for the bottom two teams that really hope for nothing.

Finally on Thursday, two teams aiming to bounce back from close losses meet as FC Barcelona Lassa (7-10) welcomes Anadolu Efes Istanbul (8-9). Barcelona are by far the competition’s lowest scorers, averaging 71.4 points per game and only 66 in its last two losses. Efes, in contrast, boasts the third-strongest offense in the league with 82.8 points per game, and the third-worst defense after allowing an average of 84.1 points. Bet365 offers the away win with  a handicap of +6.5 points at 1.90.

Friday’s matches

On Friday, Unics Kazan (7-10) will look for its fifth win in six games with a trip to Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul (9-8). The Turkish team has conceded at least 81 points in each of its last four games, partly explaining why it has the league’s third-worst overall performance index rating (82.76 per game). Unics’s preference for the paint is illustrated by the Russian team scoring fewer three-pointers than any other team (7.1 per game), but netting the fourth-highest number of two-pointers (21.5 per game). The away win with  a handicap of +7.5 points is offered by bet365 at 1.90 .

In the Game of the Week, second-placed Real Madrid (12-5) travels to face a Zalgiris Kaunas team (6-11) which has lost three straight at home. Madrid’s high-performing offense ranks first in the league in performance index rating (102.1 per game), assists (20.2 per game) and assist-to-turnover ratio (174.1%). Zalgiris, meanwhile, has been the competition’s most effective team from the foul line, converting 81.9% of its free throws. This could be a high scoring gane and the selection of Over 165.5 points is priced at 1.90 with bet365.

And finally, third-placed Olympiacos Piraeus (12-5) hosts fourth-placed Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz (11-6). It’s a battle of the league’s best rebounders, with Baskonia’s total haul of 37.2 boards per game marginally better than Olympiacos’s total of 37.1. The Greek host has seen its defense reach peak performance in recent weeks, allowing an average of just 66 points in the last three games, all of which resulted in victory. But Olympiacos also has the league’s worst assist-to-turnover ratio (113.24%). The away win with  a handicap of +6.5 points looks good and is priced at 1.90.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with a double-round week and the battle for the playoffs heating up. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games. Here’s a rundown of what’s coming up.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Fenerbahce – Olympiacos

Tuesday’s action kicks off with third-placed Fenerbahce (13-8) hosting co-leader Olympiacos (14-7). The Round 13 matchup between the teams was a rout, with Olympiacos winning 94-67 thanks to 21 points from Sasha Vezenkov. In that first game, the Greek club blitzed for 31 points in the first quarter, thus Fenerbahce will have to be ready to contend from the outset, especially after a sluggish start in last week’s loss against ASVEL.

Milano – Baskonia

Following a dramatic overtime victory over defending champion Efes in which Darius Thompson set a new EuroLeague season high with 16 assists, playoff-chasing Baskonia (12-9) will attempt to keep its offence going with a trip to free-falling Milan (6-15). The Italian squad has slid to the bottom of the standings after losing five consecutive games, and after conceding 101 points to Monaco last week, Ettore Messina’s men will need a significant defensive improvement to limit Baskonia’s dynamic offence.

Valencia – Bayern

Valencia (11-10) and Bayern (9-12) meet off on Spain’s east coast, both with four wins in their past five games, as they try to maintain their march towards the playoffs. Valencia will almost certainly give shooter Shannon Evans his debut, although captain Bojan Dubljevic will almost certainly miss out due to injury. Augustine Rubit, the January MVP, will be expected to put up another good performance for Bayern, who has scored at least 13 points in each of the last seven games.

Over 161.5 at 1.90

Partizan – Villeurbanne

ASVEL (8-13) will look to build on their fantastic triumph over Fenerbahce last week when they go to Partizan (10-11), who is also on a high after a thrilling victory in the Belgrade derby. ASVEL’s newly recruited point guard Dee Bost will aim to continue his excellent start with his new club, while the host has its own backcourt ace in Dante Exum, who has double-digit scoring in the last nine games.

1 (6.5) at 1.90

Barcelona – Maccabi

Barcelona (13-8) must reclaim Palau Blaugrana’s status as a fortress after losing three of its past four home games, and it is also determined to avenge last week’s El Clásico overtime setback. Despite only two road wins this season, visiting Maccabi (11-10) is clinging to a spot in the top eight, but a victory by 8 points or more on Tuesday would be extremely significant in securing the head-to-head edge between the teams.

Over 160.5 at 2.60

Virtus Bologna – Crvena Zvezda

In Tuesday’s final game, two direct rivals just outside the playoffs meet as Virtus (9-12) hosts Zvezda (10-11). Virtus must improve his ball-handling skills after averaging a league-high 14.4 turnovers per game. It will be critical to maximise possessions against a Zvezda club that specialises on defence, allowing an average of 77.6 points per game. Zvezda won the first meeting between the teams in December and may be able to claim crucial head-to-head advantage this week.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague action for 2023 continues non-stop. We are already in round 21 and the teams know exactly what they need to get into the play off spots. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Crvena Zvezda – Partizan

The EuroLeague’s devotion will be on full show at the Aleksandar Nikolic Hall as Zvezda (10-10) and Partizan (9-11) battle in a key Belgrade derby. Zvezda won the December match thanks to a dramatic game-winning goal from Nemanja Nedovic. Both teams have been inconsistent recently, but none of that will matter when they meet in a battle when anything can happen and maximum intensity is certain. Another victory for Zvezda would secure a potentially lucrative tie-break advantage and effectively give them a three-game lead over their local rivals.

3-way Winning Margin – Other Result (1-5 points) at 2.60

Olympiacos – Maccabi

After downing Real Madrid in perhaps its best performance of the season last week, Olympiacos (13-7) will attempt to maintain its lead by defeating a Maccabi (11-9) squad that needs a rare away victory to stay in the playoffs. With a 59.0% conversion percentage, the Reds are the most accurate two-point shooting club in the competition, but they may struggle to get to the basket against a Maccabi side that ranks second in blocked shots at 3.7 per game.

1 (-7.5) at 1.87

Baskonia – Anadolu Efes

Baskonia (11-9) will look to snap a four-game losing streak against reigning champion Efes (10-10), who is still reeling from last week’s home setback to Bayern. Long-range shooting accuracy will be critical: Baskonia leads the league with 10.8 three-point attempts per game, barely ahead of Efes’ 10.6. The shootout between Markus Howard and former Baskonia star Shane Larkin, in particular, might prove decisive.

Over 165.5 at 1.95

Bayern – Virtus Bologna

There is still a lot of work to be done if Bayern (8-12) or Virtus (9-11) wish to make the playoffs, but both got off to a promising start with tough wins last week. One of them will get more impetus if he or she wins this week’s final tipoff in Munich. The sides’ first EuroLeague meeting, in Round 2, was a hard-fought 66-63 victory for Virtus, but this might be a more offensive fight with Milos Teodosic in excellent form for the visitors and veteran big man Othello Hunter unexpectedly becoming a three-point marksman for Bayern.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with round 21 containing a clasico in Spain and a massive derby in Belgrade. None of the rest of the games though will be an easy task for the favourites. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Real Madrid – Barcelona

El Clasico’s latest round is a must-see battle between two of the co-leaders of Euroleague. Barcelona (13-7) has won three straight road games, as well as achieved a thrilling triumph at Palau Blaugrana in Round 2 when Sergio Llull missed an attempted game-winner at the buzzer. Real (13-7) will be looking to rebound from a bad showing at Olympiacos last week, and will need on another dominant performance from Walter Tavares to control the paint in what will undoubtedly be a rough contest.

Over 160.5 at 1.90

Alba Berlin – Valencia

Valencia (10-10) will aim to make it four wins in a row when it travels to ALBA Berlin (6-14) for a rematch of the EuroCup Finals from 2010 and 2019. Valencia has been plagued by injury issues recently, but important creator Chris Jones is now available, and new signing Shannon Evans, who leads the Spanish League in scoring this season, might make his debut. ALBA will look to former Valencia forward Luka Sikma for inspiration as it looks to rebound from successive losses and rekindle its fading playoff aspirations.

2 (+3.5) at 1.90

Asvel Villerbaunne – Fenerbahce

Fenerbahce (13-7) hopes to keep its share of top place with a win over ASVEL (7-13), which is searching for its first home win in four games. The Turkish titan’s three-game winning streak has been fueled by big man Johnathan Motley, who has averaged 17.7 points and 11.3 rebounds in that span. The struggle for inside supremacy between Motley and ASVEL’s Youssoupha Fall, who has scored in double figures in four straight games, will be crucial.

2 (-3.5) at 1.90

Monaco – Milano

Monaco (12-8) will look to add to the misery for Milan (6-14), which has plummeted to the bottom of the rankings with four successive losses. The home team has won the last seven games involving Monaco, including a Round 15 loss to Milan in Italy. Ettore Messina’s men overcame a 17-point deficit in that game by launching a 19-0 run in the last session, so Monaco coach Sasa Obradovic won’t need to encourage his players to compete for the full 40 minutes this time.

Over 154.5 at 1.90

Panathinaikos – Zalgiris

Zalgiris (12-8) visits struggling Panathinaikos (7-13) in pursuit of its fifth straight victory. Last week’s comeback triumph over Zvezda was secured by Edgaras Ulanovas, who can always be counted on to perform as Zalgiris’ emotional leader. But, maybe more than any other club, the Lithuanians rely on teamwork rather than individual brilliance, especially with a defence that has allowed just 76.2 points per game, the league’s second-lowest mark.

Winning margin 3-way: Any Other Result (1-5 points) at 2.60
