Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 13 – December’s double week starts



euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

December’s week of two rounds starts in Round 13, where four of the Spanish teams will enjoy remaining in their countries as Real Madrid plays Valencia Basket and FC Barcelona Lassa faces Unicaja Malaga. Action begins in Istanbul, where Marko Guduric of Fenerbahce Dogus welcomes his former teammates from Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade. And in the Russian capital, Khimki Moscow Region forward Tyler Honeycutt will play host to his last team, Anadolu Efes Istanbul.

Tuesday’s matches

Fenerbahce vs Crvena Zvezda

Reigning champion Fenerbahce (8-4) will aim to bounce back from a streak-ending home loss last week with the visit of red-hot Zvezda (5-7), which has won three games in a row to move within a game of the top half of the standings. Potent offense has been the key to Zvezda’s recent surge, with an average of 91 points per game in its three wins. James Feldeine has been particularly hot, scoring 29 and 26 points in the last two outings, so stopping him will be a key for Fener, which will be keen to recover its usual defensive stinginess after allowing Zalgiris to score 90 points last week.

Tip: 1 (-12.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris vs Brose Bamberg

Two teams high in confidence meet in Kaunas as ambitious Zalgiris (7-5) and Brose (6-6) look to build on the confidence derived from Round 12’s victories over last season’s finalists. Finding a way to contain the long-range scoring threat of Kevin Pangos will be vital for Brose, with the guard netting the league’s third-highest number of three-pointers so far this season (2.6 per game) at an impressive conversion rate of 50.8%. Brose’s last three wins have all come through overcoming double-digit deficits, so there’s no room for Zalgiris to feel comfortable until the final buzzer sounds.

Tip: Winning margin 3-way: Any other result at 2.90 with bet365

Panathinaikos vs Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv

Two traditional heavyweights meet in Athens as Panathinaikos (8-4) looks to at least maintain its share of third place with the visit of a Maccabi team (7-5) that needs to improve its away form after losing its last two road games by 22 and 15 points. Panathinaikos may be without injured leader Nick Calathes for this week’s games, so Lukas Lekavicius can expect an increased responsibility after averaging less than 13 minutes on the floor so far this season. Maccabi leads the league in rebounds (38.2 per game) and the battle for boards between the athletic Alex Tyus and James Gist will be well worth watching.

Tip: Under 159.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Real Madrid vs Valencia

After recapturing the feel-good factor with last week’s convincing Clasico win over Barcelona, host Madrid (6-6) will look to establish further momentum against another Spanish opponent, Valencia (3-9). The visiting team, which has lost eight consecutive games, will have to find a way of stopping Luka Doncic, who ranks among the league’s top five performers in no less than 11 different statistical categories. The teams have made the most (Madrid, 10.2 per game) and third-most (9.7 per game) three-pointers in the competition, so expect plenty of long-range shooting from the likes of Doncic, Jaycee Carroll, Erick Green and Sam Van Rossom.

Tip: Under 167.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Wednesday’s matches

Khimki Moscow vs Anadolu Efes

Wednesday’s action tips off with Khimki (7-5) aiming to retain its place in the top half of the standings against visiting Efes (3-9), which hopes its recent change in coach will be accompanied by a change in direction after losing four of its last five games. Efes has the unwanted distinction of being the only team in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague to concede 1,000 points this season and will need to step up its defensive efforts to stop red-hot Alexey Shved, who has averaged 26.7 points and scored 14 three-pointers in his last three games.

Tip: 2 (+6.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Olympiacos Piraeus vs CSKA Moscow

An eagerly awaited rematch of last season’s semifinal – and many other famous recent duels – is also a battle for first place as second-placed Olympiacos (9-3) welcomes first-placed CSKA (10-2), which has won four consecutive road games at an average of 91 points per game. Although Nando De Colo and Sergio Rodriguez attract most of the headlines, equally important to CSKA’s success this season has been Cory Higgins, who has averaged 13.6 points per game and reached double figures in the last seven. But if anyone can stop CSKA’s offense, it’s surely an Olympiacos team that has allowed fewer points than any other team (70.6 per game).

Tip: Under 155.5 at 1.90 with bet365

AX Olimpia Milan vs Baskonia

After suffering four consecutive single-digit losses, Milan (3-9) will seek an overdue win against a Baskonia team (6-6) that has been getting lots of those recently, recovering from a 0-4 start to move to the brink of the playoffs places. The Spanish team has particularly impressed on offense, averaging 80.7 points per game – fourth-best in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague – and will be optimistic about continuing that trend against a Milan team that has the fourth-worst defense, allowing 81 points per game. That means Milan’s offense will have to click, and the return from injury of leading scorer Andrew Goudelock (13.3 points per game) is therefore particularly timely.

Tip: 1 at 2.00 with bet365

Barcelona vs Unicaja Malaga

Round 13 is rounded off by an all-Spanish affair as Barcelona (4-8) aims to end a three-game losing slide against an Unicaja team (4-8) with renewed confidence after gaining its first win in six attempts last week. A career-best performance from James Augustine was crucial to Unicaja’s success against Khimki last week, and his rebounding ability will be vital against a Barcelona team that perversely leads the league in defensive boards (27.9 per game), but ranks a long way last in offensive rebounds (7.7 per game). Conversely, Unicaja is 15th in defensive rebounds (21.6 per game), but third in offensive boards (12.5 per game).

Tip: 1 (-7.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Liverpool vs Real Madrid Prediction, Injuries, Suspensions and Possible Line-ups



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 Final, Predictions



Euroleague FInal Four 2022

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

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 Final 4, Semifinals, Predictions



Euroleague FInal Four 2022

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

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.
