euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

Among the notable clashes in Round 10 will be one between the top two teams in alphabetical order: Anadolu Efes Istanbul vs. AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan. The visitors boast six players plus Coach Pianigiani with experience in Turkish basketball, while Efes features former Milan guard Kruno Simon. Coach Sarunas Jasikevicius, who led Maccabi to back-to-back EuroLeague crowns as a player, will lead Zalgiris Kaunas to Tel Aviv on Thursday and on Friday, CSKA Moscow and FC Barcelona Lassa, which have met four times over the past decade in the Final Four, will duel in the Russian capital.

Friday’s matches

CSKA Moscow vs Barcelona

A true Turkish Airlines EuroLeague classic tips off Friday’s action as co-leader CSKA Moscow (7-2) hosts FC Barcelona (4-5) in a rematch of a game that has been staged on four occasions in the Final Four this century. Barcelona will be hoping to build on the momentum of two consecutive big home wins by now gaining its first road victory, while CSKA’s league-best offense (87.3 ppg.) will look to further extend its seven-game streak of scoring at least 80 points. Barcelona has dished more assists than any other team (22.2 apg.), so disrupting the visiting team’s rhythm will be key for Coach Dimitris Itoudis’s team.

Tip: 1 (-8.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Panathinaikos vs Unicaja Malaga

In-form Panathinaikos (6-3) will aim for a fifth straight win with the visit of an Unicaja team that has lost three straight and not won in Athens for nearly 12 years. Panathinaikos has significantly better shooting percentages than the Spanish team, especially from long-range with a 39.8% three-point conversion rate against Unicaja’s 29.6%. Those shooting woes help to explain why Unicaja has the lowest-scoring offense in the EuroLeague, averaging just 71 points per game, and it will surely need a lot more than that to challenge a Panathinaikos team that has averaged 84.5 points at home this season.

Tip: Over 150.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Real Madrid vs Crvena Zvezda

Two teams riding a wave of negative momentum will seek to turn that around in the Spanish capital. Injury-plagued host Madrid (5-4) has lost four of its last five games, while Zvezda (2-7) has dropped five in a row to sink to the bottom of the standings. The Serbian champion can at least take heart that its offense found form in last week’s narrow loss to Baskonia, surpassing 80 points for the first time since Round 4. And the visitors will need to maintain that pace because, despite its recent losses, Madrid remains the second-highest scoring team in the competition with an average of 84.9 points per game.

Tip: 1 (-13.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Thursday’s matches

Khimki Moscow vs Brose Bamberg

After a promising start to the season, Khimki (5-4) has gone into freefall with three straight losses and will look to arrest that slide with the visit of a Brose (5-4) team that has launched miraculous comebacks in two of its last three games. A lack of offensive production has been the issue for Khimki, which will seek to improve upon its average of just 67 points per game from those three recent losses. Brose is the worst rebounding team in the competition with an average of 31.7 per game, but the absence of Khimki’s injured big man Thomas Robinson could even things out in that respect.

Tip: 1 (-4.5) at 1.90 with bet365

AX Olimpia Milan vs Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Two teams aiming to move away from the bottom of the standings go head to head when Efes (2-7) hosts visiting AX Milan (3-6). Efes relies heavily for offensive production on Errick McCollum, who averaged 26 points in his team’s two wins this season, but only 5.6 points in the last five losses. Efes has the worst defensive record in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, allowing 83.8 points per game, and Milan will look to its new backcourt duo of Jordan Theodore and Curtis Jerrells to provide the spark for what could be its fourth win of the campaign.

Tip: Over 162.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv vs Zalgiris Kaunas

After winning three of its last four games, including two on the road, Zalgiris (5-4) will be in high spirits as it attempts to climb clear of a Maccabi (5-4) team that suffered a heavy defeat in Barcelona last week. Zalgiris possesses one of the league’s most potent offenses, averaging 80.8 per game in large part thanks to an excellent three-point shooting rate of 41.9%, which is second best in the competition. Maccabi is dead last in that category after converting just 29.3% of attempts from beyond the arc, so the battle from downtown could be crucial.

Tip: No Bet

Baskonia vs Fenerbahce

Baskonia (4-5) has history on its side as it hosts reigning champ Fenerbahce (6-3): Baskonia has won seven consecutive home games against Fenerbahce, a sequence that dates back to 2004. The two teams are in good form after both winning four of their last five, and one key element could be the head to head battle between two of the league’s most in-form big men: Johannes Voigtmann has averaged 16 points, 8 rebounds and 4.5 assists in the last two games for Baskonia, while Jan Vesely has been worth 14.2 points for the season after reaching double figures in seven of his nine games.

Tip: 2 (-1.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Valencia vs Olympiacos

Struggling Valencia (3-6) will have a tough task in ending its five-game losing streak against co-leader Olympiacos (7-2), which has won three in a row. As always, the Reds’ success has been built on a defense that has restricted its opponents to a league-low team performance index rating of just 71.44 per game. Valencia could attempt to fire itself to victory from downtown after attempting 24.4 three-pointers per game, fourth-highest in the league, but that will be difficult against an Olympiacos team which has allowed opponents to convert just 31.6% of shots from beyond the arc, second-best in the competition.

Tip: Over 147.5 at 1.90 with bet365
Tip: Winning margin 3-way Any other result at 2.55 with bet365

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Thursday matches

Published

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

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.
