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

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Thursday matches

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.

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.
