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

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
