Euroleague Preview & Tips – Round 29 – The last turn



euroleague basketball

Euroleague basketball predictions included under each mini game preview.

Round 29 tips off with a bang as reigning champion Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul travels to face Khimki Moscow Region. Later on Thursday, there’s another colossal showdown between the only two teams in the running for the final playoff spot when Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz plays host to Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv. And the drama continues on Friday with an age-old rivalry renewed as Zalgiris Kaunas welcomes CSKA Moscow.

Friday’s matches

Unicaja Malaga vs Olympiacos

Olympiacos (19-9) will seek to secure a top-three finish by winning on the road against an Unicaja team (11-17) hoping to end its home campaign on a high note. Olympiacos is the lowest-scoring team in the competition, averaging just 75.5 points per game, but Unicaja has struggled defensively in recent weeks, allowing at least 80 points in each of its last five fixtures. Olympiacos is ranked second in the league in rebounding, averaging 36.2 boards per game, but faces a tough test in that area against the competition’s leading individual performer, James Augustine, who averages 6.8 boards.

Tip: 1 at 2.25 with bet365

Crvena Zvezda vs Real Madrid

Real Madrid (17-11) knows that a victory may be enough to seal home-court advantage in the playoffs as it travels to take on Zvezda (11-17). Los Blancos have scored exactly 88 points in each of their last three outings and will be looking for revenge after suffering a home loss to Zvezda in one of the best games of the season in Round 10. Zvezda saw its four-game home winning streak snapped by Fenerbahce last week and will have to work hard to disrupt the accuracy of a Madrid team that has made 56% of its two-point attempts this season, which is second-best in the league.

Tip: Under 165.5 at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris vs CSKA Moscow

Old rivals meet again in Kaunas as Zalgiris (16-12) hopes to maintain its chances of a top-four finish, while CSKA (23-5) can prepare for the playoffs knowing that first place is already guaranteed. Zalgiris has struggled for consistency in recent weeks, losing three of its last four games, and will have to step up on defense against a CSKA team that has scored at least 81 points in nine successive games. These are the two most accurate teams in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, with Zalgiris’s true shooting percentage of 53.2% only bettered by CSKA’s 54.2%.

Tip: Winning Margin 3-way: Any other result (1-5 points) at 1.90 with bet365

Panathinaikos vs Valencia

Panathinaikos (17-11) knows that victory over visiting Valencia (11-17) is imperative in its final home game before the playoffs to maintain realistic hopes of enjoying home-court advantage in post-season play. Valencia won on its only previous EuroLeague tripe to Athens and has found an excellent offensive rhythm in recent weeks, scoring 90, 96 and 93 points in its last three games. But Panathinaikos has shown excellent form on defense, bouncing back from a poor run and putting together its own three-game win streak by only allowing 79, 71 and 75 points.

Tip: Over 157.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Let’s summarize our Euroleague tips today and for the current match day.

Thursday’s matches

Khimki Moscow vs Fenerbahce

Khimki (16-12) needs a victory to maintain its bid for home-court advantage in the playoffs against visiting Fenerbahce (20-8), which has already secured that status and is now gunning for a second-place finish. Fenerbahce ranks second in the league in three-point shooting conversion (42.5%), but will face a challenge in that category as Alexey Shved attempts to further extend his record for triples in a season. Fenerbahce is aiming for a fourth consecutive road win and will lean upon the best defense in the competition, allowing an average of just 73.6 points per game.

Tip: 1 (+3.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Anadolu Efes vs Barcelona

Two teams at the bottom of the standings seek a boost in morale as Efes (6-22) faces Barcelona (9-19). Efes has lost seven consecutive games and allowed at least 81 points in each of its last four meetings. Coach Ataman’s team also has the next-to-worst true shooting percentage in the competition, making just 46.5% of its attempts, while Barcelona has the league’s fourth-best two-point shooting conversion ratio at 54.8%. But Barca is one of the weakest offensive rebounding units in the league, averaging 9.3 per game compared to Efes’s tally of 11.9.

Tip: 2 (-1.0) at 1.90 with bet365

Bamberg vs Olimpia Milan

Brose (11-17) will seek to extend its excellent form in Bamberg by gaining a sixth consecutive home win with the visit of Milan (9-19). The German champion has averaged an impressive 91 points during its five-game winning streak in Freak City, so Milan – which is on a three-game losing run – will probably have to deliver a strong scoring night to compete. These are the 14th- and 15th-ranked rebounding teams in the league (31.6 rpg. for Brose and 31.5 for Milan), so there could be a significant edge for whichever team is able to dominate that aspect.

Tip: Over 163.0 at 1.90 with bet365

Baskonia vs Maccabi Tel Aviv

A huge showdown in Vitoria could see Baskonia (15-13) seal the final playoff berth with a win, while Maccabi (13-15) knows its hopes can only be kept alive with a road triumph. The Spanish team is in fantastic form with five consecutive victories through an extremely consistent offense, which has produced 87, 81, 84, 103 and 86 points along the way. Maccabi, on the other hand, has lost its last three games and five out of six and will need to guard the perimeter well against Baskonia’s dangerous three-point shooters, who have made the league’s third-highest number of triples (9.8 per game).

Tip: Under 165.5 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.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.90
