Euroleague Preview & Tips

The race for the playoffs intensifies as Round 21 delivers a series of unmissable match-ups. It includes a repeat of last season’s Turkish Airlines Euroleague Championship Game (Fener – CSKA), an all-Spanish shoot-out (Baskonia – Real) and a red-hot challenger aiming for its eighth straight win (Crvena Zvezda – Efes).

Thursday’s matches

In the first tip-off, Unics Kazan (7-13) will look to revive its playoff ambitions by snapping a three-game losing streak against visiting Olympiacos Piraeus (14-6). It’s a battle between the league’s third-lowest scoring offense (Unics averages 76.7 points per game) and the third-best defense (Olympiacos allows an average of 74.4 points), and presents the host with a tough challenge in establish itself under the boards against the competition’s top rebounding team – Olympiacos averages 37.8 rebounds per game, compared to Unics’s 33.5. Olympiacos is against key players Spanoulis and Lojeski, while Young has also stayed in Greece. This balances the match in Russia and our pick is Under 150.5 points at 1.90 with bet365.

A mouth-watering rematch of last season’s final will also be highly significant in the race for the playoffs as fourth-placed Fenerbahce Istanbul (13-7) welcomes second-placed CSKA Moscow (15-5). Fenerbahce is building up a head of steam after securing three straight wins, averaging 85 points in the process, while CSKA has lost its last three road outings. The Russian team remains the league’s best at scoring, with 87.6 points per game, while Fenerbahce boasts the competition’s best three-point conversion rate, 41.5%, marginally ahead of CSKA’s 41.4%. It is time for CSKA to show how is the team to reach the top. There is also a difference to back our choice of an away win with 3.0 points handicap at 1.90 with bet365.

Another tie in the standings will be broken in Germany, where Brose Bamberg (7-13) will attempt to complete a season sweep over Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv (7-13). An outstanding December gave way to a miserable January for Bamberg, which followed three consecutive victories with four straight defeats, although three of those came against the top three teams in the standings. Maccabi managed to break a three-game losing streak last week and will lean upon a strong rebounding game, averaging 25.8 defensive boards per game, third-best in the league. The problem occurred with Weems leaves Maccabi short handed. With a bit of a risk Bamberg can win this by 7.0 or more at 1.90 with bet365.

Almost No Bets

Two teams on the fringes of the playoff positions meet in Lithuania with Zalgiris Kaunas (8-12) hosting FC Barcelona Lassa (8-12). Zalgiris is gunning to win three consecutive games for the first time this season and can be guaranteed to play hard, having committed more fouls than any other team (24.1 per game). Barcelona, in contrast, is the “cleanest” team in the competition, averaging just 17.9 fouls, and will be looking to shed its status as the league’s lowest-scoring team (72.4 points per game) as it pursues a first road win in three months. This will be as tough as the odds suggest (1.90 – 1.90).

Finally on Thursday, rapidly improving EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (6-14) welcomes a Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul team (10-10) that comes off two straight losses. Milan has averaged a highly impressive 93.3 points per game in its last three outings, two of which resulted in home wins, while Darussafaka – which has made the league’s second-highest number of three-pointers (9.4 per game) – has struggled on the road in recent weeks, winning only one of its last seven away games. Good luck on that one. We do fancy Milan’s come back but those two teams have the most unexpected results so far.

Friday’s matches

Friday gets underway with Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul (6-14) aiming to climb off the foot of the standings against Panathinaikos Athens Istanbul (11-9), which has seen its playoff place jeopardized with a run of four losses in six games. Those defeats all came on the road and saw the Greens average just 69.8 points per game. Galatasaray, in contrast, has won its last two home games on the back of a firing offense, scoring 87 and then a club-record 102 points. Panathinaikos can win this by +3.0 or more at 1.90 with bet365

A rematch of one of the season’s most exciting games comes from Spain, where Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (12-8) will attempt to make it two wins out of two against visiting Real Madrid (15-5). But the teams have been heading in different directions in recent weeks, with Baskonia losing three of its last four and seeing an eight-game home winning streak come to an end, while Madrid has won six consecutive games to surge to the top of the standings. Expect a shoot-out between the fifth and second-highest scoring teams in the league: Baskonia averages 81 points per game compared to Madrid’s 86.9. Madrid is going top with a win and they need to prove they can handle the maximum heights. An away win is interesting at the price of 2.00 from bet365.

Last but not least, Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (12-8) will attempt to maintain its spectacular form with a visit from playoff-chasing Anadolu Efes Istanbul (9-11). The Serbian team has won a club record seven straight games, during which it has allowed an average of just 67.2 points and never more than 73. Efes needs to reverse a three-game losing slide on the road, but has a better chance than most of breaching Zvezda’s formidable defense after averaging 82.3 points per game – third-highest in the league. Efes also leads the league in offensive rebounding, claiming 13.5 per game. The hosts are in form but the visitors are an interesting team with a fighting spirit and can at least hold the handicap of +4.5 points to their favor.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague action for 2023 continues non-stop. We are already in round 19, therefore in the second half of the regular season. 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.

Anadolu Efes – Bayern

Shane Larkin’s return to fitness has given defending champion Efes (10-9) an extra dimension as it looks to cement its spot in the top eight by defeating visiting Bayern (7-12) after an outstanding win in Barcelona last week. The German squad has lost five straight away games, but overcame Efes 81-78 in November in Munich. On that occasion, offensive rebounding was crucial, with Bayern grabbing 18, so Efes will be determined to play with more physicality this time around.

Over 156.5 at 1.90

Zalgiris – Crvena Zvezda

At the Final Four venue, Zalgirio Arena, a duel between two of this season’s most interesting dark horses will take place, with Zalgiris (11-8) trying to make it four wins in a row and Zvezda (10-9) looking to build on last week’s devastating win over Monaco. Zvezda now leads the series after a four-point home win against Zalgiris a month ago, thanks to Luca Vildoza’s career-high 27 points. Now, Zvezda must overcome a Zalgiris defence that allowed only 61 points in last week’s victory in Milan.

1 (-2.5) at 1.90

Olympiacos – Real Madrid

After taking full ownership of first place with a pair of road wins last week, Real (13-6) will look to maintain that position as it travels to Piraeus to face second-place Olympiacos (12-7) in a playoff-style matchup. These are also the competition’s top two scoring clubs, with Olympiacos (85.2 points per game) edging Real (84.4), and everything leads to another spectacular battle between two European titans. Olympiacos already won 87-89 in Madrid in October on the strength of a spectacular game-winning shot by Kostas Sloukas.

Real Madrid Under 79.5 at 1.83

Milano – Asvel Villeurbanne

Two bottom-of-the-standings teams whose playoff ambitions require a huge boost meet in Milan (6-13) as Milan welcomes ASVEL (6-13). The hosts are on a three-game losing streak, while ASVEL has lost five in a row due to injury issues. Because these are the league’s two lowest-scoring clubs (Milan 69.6 points per game; ASVEL 74.4), the winner should be determined by which team can find more offensive fluency.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague action for 2023 continues non-stop. We are already in round 19, therefore in the second half of the regular season. 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.

Fenerbahce – Monaco

Two of the four clubs tied for second meet to kick off the week in style, with Fenerbahce (12-7) welcoming Monaco (12-7). The Turkish squad, which has won two games in a row, will be hoping that big man Johnathan Motley can keep up his excellent form after winning the Round 19 MVP award. Monaco is coming off its worst performance of the season, a 24-point loss to Zvezda, and must re-ignite an attack that has scored only 60 and 68 points in the last two games.

Over 161.5 at 1.90

Maccabi – Alba Berlin

Maccabi (10-9), with the competition’s joint-best home record (8-1), will aim to extend that – and also stay in the playoffs – with a visit from ALBA (6-13), which saw its three-game winning streak ended last week with a tough loss to Real Madrid. Both teams will attempt to dominate the boards: Maccabi leads the league in offensive rebounding with 12.5 per game, while ALBA, which has won only one of its previous eight games in Tel Aviv, is third with 11.7.

Maccabi Over 88.5 at 2.10

Baskonia – Barcelona

In a Spanish derby with everything on the line, Baskonia (11-8) will try to halt a two-game losing streak against Barcelona (12-7), who has a point to prove after last week’s home setback to Efes. Baskonia, which has won six straight at home, will be hoping to have long-range shooting specialist Markus Howard return from injury, while Barcelona will be hoping to see point guard Tomas Satoransky return to give more order to an offence that has been uneven in recent weeks.

2 at 1.75

Virtus Bologna – Panathinaikos

After snapping a six-game losing streak with a spirited win against Maccabi last week, Panathinaikos (7-12) looks to continue its upward trajectory with a trip to Virtus (8-11). Virtus, who lost both games at home during the double-round week, will look to improve its defence after conceding 87 and 85 points respectively. Panathinaikos will be hoping that Paris Lee continues to shine in the backcourt after scoring 21 points in their last game.

2 (+5.5) at 1.90

Valencia – Partizan

Valencia (9-10) hosts Partizan (9-10) in a clash of direct rivals just outside the playoffs. Valencia has overcome many injury absences to win three of its last four home games, but its patched-up team will need to produce a good defensive performance to contain one of the league’s most dangerous attackers. Partizan is seventh in two-point shooting accuracy (56.2%) and fourth in three-point shooting accuracy (37.8%), and has scored at least 83 points in each of the last four games.
