Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 11 – It’s getting hot!



euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

The Round 11 opener will see Zalgiris Kaunas head coach Sarunas Jasikevicius welcome several familiar faces when the Lithuanian champs face Panathinaikos Superfoods Athens. Saras won the EuroLeague and three Greek championships with the Greens, was a teammate of current playmaker Nick Calathes, played for Panathinaikos boss Xavi Pascual at Barcelona and coached Lukas Lekavicius last season. Another coach facing his former side will be Neven Spahija of Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, who led Valencia Basket to the 2010 EuroCup crown. Among three Friday fixtures will be a clash of EuroLeague titans with Olympiacos Piraeus facing Real Madrid.

Friday’s matches

Crvena Zvezda vs Anadolu Efes

After climbing off the bottom of the standings by snapping a long losing streak with a big win at Real Madrid, Zvezda (3-7) will seek to build further momentum against an Efes (3-7) team going in search of its third road win of the campaign. Zvezda’s success last week was built on converting a club record 17 three-pointers and it could look for long-range bombs again in a meeting of the competition’s two worst defenses, with Efes allowing one more point (822) than Zvezda (821) in the opening 10 games. It’s also a clash between the two top offensive rebounding units: Efes averages 13.5 offensive boards per game, just ahead of Zvezda’s 13.

Tip: 2 at 2.40 with bet365

Olympiacos vs Real Madrid

A heavyweight battle will see league-leading Olympiacos (8-2) go in search of a fifth straight win with the visit of a Madrid (5-5) team in danger of heading into freefall after losing five of its last six games, including three straight on the road. Los Blancos’ problems have been on the defensive end, allowing an average of 90 points during its five losses. But Madrid does still possess the league’s second-highest scoring offense with 84.7 points per game, and will certainly challenge Olympiacos’s second-best defense, which has conceded just 70.8 points per game so far.

Tip: Under 155.5 at 1.98 with bet365

Barcelona vs Fenerbahce

Reigning champion Fenerbahce (7-3) is on a roll after winning five of its last six games to advance to third in the standings, but will be tested against a Barcelona (4-6) team that has gained four convincing home wins already this season. It’s the league’s best defense – Fenerbahce has allowed an average of just 70.5 points per game – against the third-best offense, with Barcelona averaging 82.4 points. Don’t miss the inside battle between two of the EuroLeague’s most explosive big men, the hosts’ Kevin Seraphin (13.6 ppg., 4.6 rpg.) and visitors’ Jan Vesely (13.8 ppg., 4.4 rpg.).

Tip: 2 at 1.90 with bet365

Thursday’s matches

Zalgiris Kaunas vs Panathinaikos

Red-hot Panathinaikos (7-3) and newly-crowned monthly MVP Nick Calathes will take their five-game winning streak to face a Zalgiris (5-5) team aiming to keep hold of its place in the upper half of the standings. Panathinaikos has scored exactly 82 points in each of its last three games and will look to impose itself around the rim against a Zalgiris team that has blocked fewer shots – 1.7 per game – than any other team, while the hosts look to maintain their ball-sharing abilities after averaging 19.5 assists per game, which is third best in the league.

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

Brose Bamberg vs CSKA Moscow

Brose (5-5) has precisely alternated wins and losses over the last six games and will hope that sequence continues with the visit of co-leader CSKA (8-2), which has won three consecutive games on the road. The German champ faces a major task in trying to stop a CSKA offense that has scored at least 90 points on five occasions already this season, and Brose could help itself in its defensive endeavors by improving its tally of steals after averaging just 4.9 per game – the third-lowest in the league and well short of CSKA’s league-best 8.4 thefts per game.

Tip: 1 at 4.25 with bet365

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv vs Valencia

Valencia (3-7) has the unwanted distinction of owning the league’s worst recent record after losing its last six straight games. Maccabi (6-4), which will attempt to extend that streak by gaining its sixth home win of the season, boasts a serious advantage in rebounding after claiming 39.4 boards per game – the most in the league – compared to Valencia’s 32.4, which is next to worst in the EuroLeague. The Spanish champion could look to make the most of its superior three-point shooting, having converted 39.8% of its shots from downtown compared to just 32% from Maccabi.

Tip: 2 (+6.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Baskonia vs Unicaja Malaga

A Spanish derby features two teams heading in different directions with Baskonia (4-6) setting its sights on a place in the top half of the standings as it welcomes a Unicaja team (3-7), which has sunk to the bottom of the standings with a run of four straight losses. If the game becomes a shoot-out, Baskonia would fancy its chances, boasting significantly better shooting percentages than the visitors in all categories. But Unicaja has been slightly better defensively, allowing 78.9 points per game compared to Baskonia’s 79.8, and will therefore surely prefer a low-scoring contest.

Tip: Over 156.5 at 1.90 with bet365

AX Olimpia Milan vs Khimki Moscow

Milan (3-7) will aim to snap a two-game losing streak with the visit of a Khimki (6-4) team that has its confidence restored after getting back into its winning ways last week. The two teams have identical overall performance index rating averages of 84.4 per game and everything points towards a close game in the fashion capital. Milan will look to dominate the paint through one of the competition’s hottest players, Arturas Gudaitis, who has averaged 13.7 points and 7.3 rebounds in the last three outings, while Khimki will inevitably again rely heavily on Alexey Shved, who has scored at least 16 points in every game so far this season.

Tip: 1 (-1.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Wednesday matches



Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with a double-round week and the battle for the playoffs is taking one of its final turns. 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.

Maccabi – Fenerbahce

The excellent home record of Maccabi (13-13) will be put to the test when high-flying Fenerbahce (16-9) pays a visit, hoping to maintain its top-four position with a fourth straight victory. The return to fitness of Nemanja Bjelica, who finally played his first game of the season in last week’s rout of Virtus, has boosted the Turkish team. Tyler Dorsey, another new face at Fenerbahce, could make his debut in familiar surroundings after debuting in the competition with two strong seasons at Maccabi between 2019 and 2021.

2 at 1.90

Crvena Zvezda – Anadolu Efes

Efes (13-12) is looking to extend its lead in the table with a third straight road win and inflict more pain on host Zvezda (11-15), which is in a slump after losing six of its last seven games. Facundo Campazzo will make his home EuroLeague debut for Zvezda, and his ability to overcome Elijah Bryant’s strong defensive game will be crucial. In the absence of injured superstar Vasilije Micic, the Efes guard has stepped up big time, averaging 13.3 points and 6.7 rebounds in the last three games.

Under 159.5 at 1.90

Monaco – Panathinaikos

Monaco (16-10) will look to keep the pressure on the current top four by defeating Panathinaikos (8-18), which is looking to snap a five-game losing streak. A key matchup will take place between two potent shooters facing off against their former teams: Mike James, who played for Panathinaikos from 2016 to 2018, leads Monaco with 17.0 points per game, while Dwayne Bacon, who spent last season with Monaco, leads the Greens with 17.7 points.

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Tuesday matches



Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with a double-round week and the battle for the playoffs is taking one of its final turns. 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.

Alba Berlin – Zalgiris

With a trip to Berlin to play bottom-placed ALBA, struggling Zalgiris (13-13) will seek to improve its poor away form (7-19). The Lithuanian team has dropped out of the top eight after losing four consecutive road games, and it desperately needs to increase its offensive output after failing to reach 80 points in any of the previous eight games. ALBA should be an ideal opponent in that quest: the German team has allowed the most points, 85.3 per game, and was defeated 88-81 in November when the teams played in Kaunas.

Over 161.5 at 1.90

Olympiacos – Barcelona

As Olympiacos (18-8) welcomes Barcelona, a big battle between second and third could easily serve as a prelude to a Final Four meeting (18-8). Olympiacos is looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat at Milan last week, while Barcelona is on a five-game winning streak and has the added incentive of regaining the head-to-head edge after losing 70-80 at home to the Reds earlier this season. The game’s rhythm will be important: Olympiacos has the most assists in the league, 22.0 per game, while Barcelona’s defence permits only 13.4 assists per game.

2 (+3.5) at 1.90

Valencia – Milano

Milan’s (10-15) late surge up the standings will be put to the test with a journey to playoff-chasing Valencia (13-13), which is desperate to avenge a thrashing at Baskonia last week. Milan’s four-game winning stretch – all at home – was highlighted by a strong run of form from Billy Baron, who averaged 13.3 points and 3.5 assists during that time. After permitting at least 91 points in three of the last four games, three of which ended in defeat, it’s no surprise that Valencia will prioritise defence.

Over 158.5 at 1.90

Virtus Bologna – Partizan

Virtus (12-14) will seek to get back on track against a Partizan (14-12) team that is aiming not only for the playoffs but also for a spot in the top four. Partizan’s potent offence, which averages 84.8 points per game, is salivating at the thought of facing Virtus, which allowed 104 points to Fenerbahce last week. Virtus, in particular, allowed the Turkish team to hit 20 three-pointers in that game and now faces Aleksa Avramovic, who hit 5 three-pointers in last week’s victory over ALBA, so better perimeter defence is critical for Virtus.

Partizan Over 82.5 at 1.83

Real Madrid – Baskonia

Real (18-7) will seek for their sixth consecutive win by defeating visiting Baskonia (14-12), who could not be more confident of pulling off an upset after blasting 114 points against Valencia last week. Real Madrid is expected to be without Edy Tavares, who limped off the court in the team’s last EuroLeague game on Friday, so Baskonia may attempt to gain physical supremacy after grabbing an incredible 43 rebounds against Valencia. Guerschon Yabusele, on the other hand, is expected to return for Real at an appropriate time given the probable absence of Tavares.

Under 168.5 at 1.90

Bayern – Villeurbanne

Bayern (10-16) will try to keep its slim playoff hopes alive against an ASVEL (8-18) side with little time to climb the standings. The return to fitness of team leader Vladimir Lucic, who appeared for the first time since Round 10 in last week’s win over Zvezda and instantly delivered a big performance with 20 points on 8-for-10 shooting from the field, has been a tremendous boost for Bayern. ASVEL has only lost by one point to Efes and four points to Real in its last two games, so its confidence should be intact for the journey to Bavaria.

Winning margin 7-way: 1-5 points at 2.90
