Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 20 – At the 2/3 mark



euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

January will come to a close with the games of Round 20. Two of the great EuroCup sides will duel when Valencia Basket hosts Khimki Moscow Region. CSKA Moscow will look to continue its home-court dominance of Brose Bamberg when they meet; CSKA has never lost in seven past meetings in Moscow between the sides. And Andrew Goudelock of AX Armani Exchange Olimpia Milan will look to get the best of his former team when Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv comes to the fashion capital; Maccabi won its most-recent EuroLeague title at Mediolanum Forum in 2014.

Friday’s matches

CSKA Moscow vs Brose Bamberg

Brose (7-12) will aim for its first-ever win in Moscow against a CSKA (15-4) team eager to protect its two-game lead atop the standings. CSKA is renowned as the competition’s most explosive offensive unit, but last week’s victory over Panathinaikos showed that Dimitris Itoudis’s men can also grind out narrow low-scoring successes when necessary, and Brose has a major challenge to prevent its road losing streak from increasing to seven straight games. Brose will certainly have to find a way to restrict Sergio Rodriguez, who seems to be getting better every week and has made at least 2 triples in each of his last five games.

Tip: 2 (+15.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Fenerbahce vs Barcelona

Every time it seems that Barcelona’s (7-12) playoff challenge is in danger of collapsing, the Spanish club has kept its hopes alive by pulling out a big win, doing so again with last week’s victory over Brose Bamberg. And after already defeating CSKA Moscow, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos this season, Barcelona will not be daunted by facing Fenerbahce (13-6). The reigning champ is in excellent form, though, winning four consecutive games to climb into joint-second place. A major challenge for the visiting defense is disrupting Fenerbahce’s long-range shooting game, with Zeljko Obradovic’s men making 41.2% of their three-point attempts so far this season, which is second-best in the league.

Tip: 2 (+8.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Crvena Zvezda vs Olympiacos

Two extremely unpredictable teams meet in Belgrade, where Zvezda (7-12) will look to end a three-game losing slide against an Olympiacos (13-6) team that has lost four of its last five away games, being hammered by 32 and 28 points in the last two. The Reds have averaged just 60.4 points per game in those five road trips, so they need to significantly improve their offensive production. Zvezda has attempted the third-highest number of three-pointers in the league, 25.6 per game, but has not always been successful with that strategy, making just 32.9% of long-range shots – only Olympiacos, with 32.4%, has fared worse.

Tip: Under 149.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Valencia vs Khimki Moscow

Khimki’s (11-8) current run of three wins in four games has lifted the Russian team to within a game of the top four, and that gap could be surmounted with victory over a Valencia Basket (6-13) team that has been involved in several close battles recently – four of the Spanish team’s last five outings have been settled by 5 points or less. Khimki is tied for the league lead in steals (7.7 per game) and will seek to use those ball-hounding skills to unsettle a Valencia offense that has averaged just 75.4 points per game, which is second-lowest in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.

Tip: 2 (+3.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Olimpia Milan vs Maccabi Tel Aviv

Newly-confident Milan (6-13) will aim for its third consecutive victory against a Maccabi team (10-9) eager to make a good start to a run of three road trips in the next four rounds. The Israeli side has lost five consecutive away games by an average of 18.4 points, and badly needs to toughen up on its travels to maintain its grip on a playoffs position. However Maccabi has fond memories of Milan, where it won the 2014 EuroLeague crown. Milan has scored at least 80 points in each of its last five outings, but will have to work hard to avoid being heavily outrebounded by a Maccabi team that leads the league in that category with an average of 37.3 boards per game.

Tip: Over 164.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Thursday’s matches

Panathinaikos vs Zalgiris

A game with major ramifications in the race for home-court advantage takes place in the Greek capital, where Panathinaikos (12-7) welcomes Zalgiris (12-7) for a game which will split their tie for fourth place. The backcourt battle will feature league-leading assister Nick Calathes (8.4 apg.) going head to head with Kevin Pangos, who set a new Zalgiris record with 15 assists last week. Panathinaikos will seek to regain its invincibility in Athens after losing its first regular season home game in more than a year against CSKA in Round 19, while Zalgiris needs to snap a two-game losing sequence on the road.

Tip: 1 (-8.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Real Madrid vs Anadolu Efes

The other team currently tied for fourth place, Madrid (12-7), will look to get back to its winning ways against an Efes (5-14) team that is much more dangerous than its position at the bottom of the standings might suggest. Since the arrival of Toney Douglas to the backcourt, Efes has averaged 89 points per game, but Madrid is the second-highest scoring team in the competition (83.9 ppg.) and will relish the chance to take on Efes’s league-worst defense, which has conceded 83.4 points per game. Expect a shootout as Madrid seeks a fifth straight home victory, while Efes looks for its first road win since Round 7.

Tip: Over 169.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Unicaja Malaga vs Baskonia

An all-Spanish affair could be a serious momentum-changer in the race for the playoffs as Unicaja (8-11) welcomes Baskonia (8-11) for a game that could leave the winner just one game short of the top half of the standings. The host will have confidence renewed after stopping a three-game losing streak with last week’s win over Madrid, while Baskonia’s charge up the standings has been halted by a run of just one win in five. Unicaja is the league’s second-best offensive rebounding team, averaging 12.8 per game, while Baskonia ranks second in assists (19.3 per game).

Tip: 2 (+2.5) 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 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.
