CSKA Moscow – Khimki

A new edition of the Leningradka Derby comes to the EuroLeague on Friday as already-qualified CSKA Moscow (21-10) welcomes last-place Khimki Moscow Region (4-27) for Round 33. CSKA is currently on a three-game winning run and another victory on Friday would secure the team home-court advantage in its upcoming playoff series. If Anadolu Efes Istanbul and AX Armani Exchange Milan were to both lose on Thursday, however, CSKA would already have that goal met and this game would be about finishing as high as possible for the hosts. In another Russian derby earlier this week, CSKA defeated host Zenit 74-86 to punch its playoffs ticket. Khimki is enduring one of its worst seasons ever and was eliminated weeks ago. However, it managed to stop a four-game slide with an overtime win over ASVEL at home, 87-85, on Wednesday.

CSKA has punched its playoffs ticket and is now focused on nailing down home-court advantage. The hosts have the best offense in the league and they are also the top-rebounding team. Khimki cannot compare numbers-wise before tipoff, but the rivalry and its win earlier this week against ASVEL will surely fuel the visitors’ fire. Just playing the spoiler against one of its biggest rivals is always incentive enough for motivation. CSKA knows Khimki well, including the visitors’ league-low three-point shooting accuracy, so expect CSKA’s defense to try to maintain that and punish such misses with strong fastbreak basketball.

  • Nikola Milutinov could miss the rest of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.
  • Mike James has been suspended by head coach Dimitris Itoudis.

It has not been an easy season for Khimki, whose playoffs options faded weeks ago. However, the guests are still putting up a fight and managed to win their fourth game earlier this week. They are the top shot-blocking team in the league and are also dishing more assists than CSKA, who has the second-worst register in the league in that department. It will all start from defense for Khimki, especially guarding CSKA’s snipers, who are firing on all cylinders this season. A win on Friday would sweeten Khimki’s rough season a bit.

  • Devin Booker has missed the last 11 games.
  • Stefan Jovic has not played in the last 10 games.
  • Janis Timma has not played in the last seven games.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+16.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 02/04/2021, 09:30 CET, subject to change)

Zenit – Villeurbanne

Playoffs hopeful Zenit St Petersburg (17-14) welcomes already-eliminated LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (12-19) on Friday in an attempt to keep its goal alive. Zenit still cannot qualify this week, and it’s important to remember that it still has a game pending from Round 6 at home against already-eliminated Panathinaikos, scheduled for April 12. Zenit has lost four of its last five games in the final stretch of the season, including one earlier this week against CSKA, 74-86. After a solid winning streak, ASVEL has dropped its last five games, including in overtime at Khimki, 87-85 on Wednesday. Zenit has everything at stake with this duel, while ASVEL will try to play the spoiler.

Many of Zenit’s playoff options rely on winning this game. The team has one of the worst offenses in the league, but also one of the best defenses. ASVEL is as athletic as opponents come, so the hosts will have to adapt to and match that intensity. That adaptation will have to start on the boards, so Zenit limits the visitors’ possessions and controls the tempo. But Zenit also needs to watch the ASVEL snipers, who rank seventh in the league but can get hot quickly. Zenit will have to focus all over the court and not let any details escape in this duel. A misstep here could be fatal for its playoffs aspirations.

ASVEL dropped its last game at Khimki in overtime and surely will not want to leave Russia empty-handed. The team is eliminated already, but despite its late slide, has shown all season that it belongs in the EuroLeague. The French team will try to make that point once again by playing the spoiler for a Zenit team that has been struggling of late. The guests will have to try to fortify their defense – the EuroLeague’s fifth-worst – and build from there. The offensive resources for ASVEL are plentiful, so the main caveat will be watching the 56.2% for two-point accuracy that makes Zenit so dangerous if not guarded closely.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 155.5 at 1.90 with bet365

ALBA Berlin – Valencia

It’s all but a do-or-die situation for Valencia Basket (17-15) as it visits already-eliminated ALBA Berlin (11-21) on Friday for Round 33. With just two games to go, Valencia’s best hope for reaching the playoffs is to win both games, though it still might need help from other results. A loss to ALBA combined with Real Madrid and Baskonia wins would mathematically eliminate Valencia. ALBA is currently on a three-game slide, the last loss coming on the road against Zalgiris, 96-86, on Tuesday. Valencia was doing well on a three-game winning streak that came to a halt on Wednesday at home against already-eliminated Olympiacos, 79-88, considerably crimping its playoffs aspirations.

ALBA is already eliminated from the playoffs race, but will look to play the spoiler part against a historically difficult foe. Valencia has the third-best offense in the league, and both Valencia and ALBA stand in the top two spots in the league in assists, respectively. As such, we could expect an offensive showdown. However, ALBA will have to pay close attention to defense as Valencia also boasts the EuroLeague’s best shooting percentage in two-pointers.

Valencia will be thinking that it has to win this game to amplify its playoff possibilities. The guests have the third-best PIR average in the league, meaning that it is one of the three teams with the most well-rounded performances. ALBA is already eliminated and will play with no pressure. The guests will have to stay alert for the hosts’ singular playing style and be careful with details. In a close ending, ALBA could prove hard to beat as it has the second-best percentage in the league for free throws.

  • Martin Hermannsson missed last two games.

Fenerbahce – Barcelona

Two playoff-bound teams will square off for better positions in the final standings when Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (20-12) welcomes leader FC Barcelona (23-9) in Round 33 on Friday. Fenerbahce reached the playoffs on Tuesday thanks to its 15th win in the last 17 games, this one by 68-77 on FC Bayern Munich’s court Barcelona was the only qualified team before Round 32 and has already clinched home-court advantage the playoffs. Its next victory would lock up first place after it missed the chance in a 99-94 overtime defeat at Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv on Tuesday, ending Barcelona’s five-game winning streak.

After dealing with a rough first half of the season, Fenerbahce found its bearings and started an epic winning run after the new year to finally earn a place in the playoffs. The Turkish team is now playing for home-court advantage in its series, so the stakes are high against the team that has owned first place for a long time. Barca has the EuroLeague’s fourth-best offense and its best defense, so it will not be easy for the hosts. Fener has the league’s second-best team two-point accuracy, so its plan will be to keep finding inside shots while trying to limit all the Barcelona stars who are coming to Istanbul with the intention of clinching first place with a win.

  • Edgaras Ulanovas has missed the last three games.

Barcelona lost in overtime in Maccabi and surely will want to get back on the winning track not to both nail down first place and restart its momentum going into the playoffs. Fener will surely want to get some revenge from the bad loss they suffered in Spain, but the hosts seem to be struggling under the boards, with the second-worst rebound numbers in the league. Expect Barca to test that weakness by crashing the boards on both ends, which would also let the visitors dominate the tempo of the game.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+3.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 02/04/2021, 09:30 CET, subject to change)

Real Madrid – Olympiacos

It is a last push for the playoffs for Real Madrid (18-14) when Los Blancos host already-eliminated Olympiacos Piraeus (15-17) on Friday for Round 33. Real can qualify with a win but would also need Zenit St Petersburg and either Baskonia or Valencia to lose. The hosts have dropped three of their last four games, including on Tuesday against Efes, 83-108, at home. Head coach Pablo Laso was ejected from that game and sanctioned with a one-game suspension, as well. The Reds have won four of their last five games, including the last one at Valencia, 79-88, on Wednesday. They will now look to spoil the chances of a team that they have waged many great battles with over the decades.

Real has been struggling lately, but still has the playoffs in its reach. This win would certainly help that plan to work, while a defeat might prove eventually fatal. Both teams stand close on most statisitics, but they are experiencing different dynamics, and that could play an important part in the game. Sasha Vezenkov and Kostas Sloukas are shining lately for the Reds, so stopping them must be the main goal of the hosts if they want to take this win. Then it will be a matter of hoping for other results or play for their lives in Round 34.

  • Anthony Randolph is out with a ruptured left Achilles tendon.
  • Sergio Llull is sidelined after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

The Reds are on a winning trend lately. They are already eliminated, but they always play with the heart of champions and this game will be no exception. Olympiacos has been one of the most consistent teams in steals in the last three games, and that aggressiveness in defense will surely be a thing to use against Los Blancos. Winning in Madrid is always a good bounty, but the hosts have a deep, talented roster that knows what it takes to win and the urgency of the moment. It will be a battle of wills from two teams that have prospered in such battles over the years.

  • Kostas Papanikolaou has missed Olympiacos’s last 17 games.
  • Hassan Martin is sidelined with a knee injury.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague regular season continues. We have learnt quite a lot of things about this years contestants after a few exciting games and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Monaco – Bayern Munich

When Monaco (6-3) hosts Bayern Munich (3-6) for Round 10, two teams with different fortunes earlier in the week will clash. Monaco has a spotless 2-0 record versus Bayern so far in their EuroLeague meetings. In Round 9, Fenerbahce defeated Monaco 93-96 despite a significant comeback in the fourth quarter. Monaco’s top scorer and rebounder was Jordan Loyd (18 points). On the other hand, Bayern defeated ASVEL, 74-75, for its third victory of the year, powered by 13 points from Lucic.

Monaco, which had an erratic start to the season, has recently had some ups and downs and will attempt to prevent a double-round home sweep against Bayern. The stats suggest that Monaco takes care of the ball better than any other club, as they lead the league in steals per game (8.8) and lowest turnovers (9.8). Since Bayern performs better from the free-throw line and also knows how to preserve their glass, the hosts will want to prevent a close game. The hosts are performing well overall and boast one of the league’s most lethal backcourts with Loyd, Mike James, and Okobo. They must keep an eye out for Winston and Weiler-Babb in particular.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 156.5 at 1.90

Panathinaikos – Asvel Villeurbanne

Panathinaikos (3-6) meets ASVEL Villeurbanne (3-6), two teams whose respective games on Wednesday ended in dramatic way, prepare for another matchup just 48 hours later.

Derrick Williams shone with 26 points for Panathinaikos in their recent 88-85 overtime victory over Virtus Bologna. Late in the extra period, Williams hit a critical three-pointer to give the Greens a decisive lead. Wolters scored 18 points, Lee had 15, and Panathinaikos hit 13 of them with a 44.8% accuracy rate. In this home game, the Greens seek to maintain their impressive shooting form.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-6.5) at 1.90

Barcelona – Baskonia

At Palau Blaugrana, Barcelona (6-3) will welcome Baskonia (5-4) in a rematch of two familiar teams. Laprovittola (15.2 ppg), Sanli (8.9 ppg), and Satoransky, three former Baskonia guards, helped Barca win four of its most recent five games (7.8 ppg.). Following a 20-point victory over Zalgiris at home, Baskonia hopes to maintain its momentum. The leading scorer for Baskonia has been Howard (15.6 ppg), who is followed by Thompson (12.6 ppg) and Kotsar (11.8 ppg.).

Barca averages just 14.6 free throw attempts each game, which is not a lot. Barca has also connected on 36.9% of its downtown shots. Now that Kuric, a talented three-point shooter, is back with the squad, that percentage ought to increase. Kuric provides Barca with yet another tool to deploy against Marinkovic and Giedraitis in the backcourt. To balance its offence, Barca has to locate Tobey and Vesely inside. Vesely and Sanli must be active on defence against Costello, a large player with limitless mobility who has just improved his physical condition.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 161.5 at 1.90

Virtus Bologna – Anadolu Efes

In a sold-out arena, Virtus Bologna (4-5) will welcome the two-time defending champions Anadolu Efes (4-5) in an effort to defend its home court. The champions of the previous season’s EuroCup and EuroLeague square off, with Virtus and Efes meeting for the first time in a competitive match in more than 20 years.

Regarding the outcomes of their earlier games this week, the two sides enter this match in diametrically opposed moods. After suffering a heartbreaking 88-85 overtime loss to Panathinaikos on Wednesday, Virtus returns home. Early in the game, Virtus had a substantial lead and needed to come back to force OT. Prior to losing, it led for the majority of the extra session again. Last year’s EuroCup MVP Jaiteh shone with a career-high 20 points and 10 rebounds.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+2.5) at 1.90

Valencia – Zalgiris

When Zalgiris Kaunas (5-4) visits Valencia (4-5), both clubs will be looking to complete this double-round with at least one victory. This is the tenth meeting between these two clubs in the EuroLeague, with Valencia holding a 6-3 advantage overall. Despite Van Rossom’s 17 points and 3 assists on Tuesday, Valencia lost to Real Madrid 73-80 at home. Despite Ulanovas scoring 18 points, Zalgiris lost to Baskonia by a score of 93-73 on Wednesday.

In most statistics, both teams’ numbers appear to be very close on paper. For instance, Valencia scores 0.3 more points per game than the next team. The average PIR difference is also in Zalgiris’ favour. In terms of shooting accuracy across the board, Zalgiris outperforms Valencia, while Valencia does better in terms of assists, steals, and turnovers. One of these two teams will be able to successfully complete the double-round week on Friday night, so it appears that everything will come down to the little things.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague regular season continues. We have learnt quite a lot of things about this years contestants after a few exciting games and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Panathinaikos – Virtus Bologna

On Wednesday night, Panathinaikos (2-6) will host Virtus Bologna (4-4) at the OAKA Stadium in Athens. The Greens have won just one of their past six matches, while Virtus has won three of its last four.

With its summer recruits still gelling on the court, Panathinaikos and first-year head coach Dejan Radonjic’s season has not started as they had hoped. There have been hints of a spark, such as Dwayne Bacon’s 20-point performance in Round 8, but after losing 107-77 on the road to Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul, Panathinaikos needs to respond quickly. If the Greens want to send Virtus home dissatisfied, they’ll need to improve on their second-to-last defensive record on their home court, where they defeated Baskonia 98-83 in Round 7 to snap a four-game losing streak.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 156.5 at 1.90

Asvel Villeurbanne – Bayern Munich

At the Astroballe, two teams that have recently lost face off. Round 9 features an intriguing matchup between Bayern Munich and ASVEL Villeurbanne (3-5). (2-6). In front of its supporters, ASVEL will attempt to bounce back after dropping its last two games. After a 0-5 start, Bayern won three straight matches before falling to Olympiacos Piraeus at home in Round 8. As of last season, Bayern has a 4-2 record against ASVEL in EuroLeague games. Augustine Rubit scored 17 points to help Bayern win both of their meetings in those games, 73-65 in Munich and 68-77 on the road.

Finding a second scorer in the paint to support Youssoupha Fall in the low post is a challenge for ASVEL. Although ASVEL is making less than half of their two-point attempts (48.8%), Fall has been successful (65.6% 2FG). The home team’s perimeter players, Nando De Colo (47.5% 2FG, David Lighty 47.5%, and Charles Kahudi 45.5%), David Lighty, and Charles Kahudi, must be more productive for ASVEL’s attack to be less predictable and give Fall an even better chance to continue converting easy baskets close to the hoop.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other Result (1-5 points difference) at 2.60

Baskonia – Zalgiris

In what has been a meeting of two of the EuroLeague’s surprise teams so far this season, Baskonia (4-4) welcomes Zalgiris (5-3) at Buesa Arena in Vitoria.

With a quick 3-0 start with several first-year players showcasing their skills, including Howard, Thompson, and Kotsar, Baskonia emerged as the side to watch in the early stages of the season. The club has since lost four straight games, with its lone triumph coming against Maccabi in a rout at home. On its home court, where it is 3-1, Baskonia will once again be able to rely on its constant home support. Baskonia lost 79-74 on the road against Monaco.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague regular season continues. We have learnt quite a lot of things about this years contestants after a few exciting games and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Monaco – Fenerbahce

Round 9 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague begins with Monaco hosting Fenerbahce and features two of the best teams. With a 6-2 record, Monaco is tied for second place in the standings, while Fenerbahce has the best record in the league at 7-1. The squad from the principality has won all three of its home games this year without losing, and Fenerbahce is 2-1 away from home with its lone setback coming in Round 6 at Barcelona.

Monaco’s backcourt, with Mike James (18.8 ppg), Okobo (13.2 ppg), and Loyd (12.4 ppg), has been its strongest point. The team under coach Sasa Obradovic also ranks first in turnovers (8.9 per game) and thefts (8.9 per game) (9.8 per game). Monaco’s 31.5% three-point shooting ranks last in the league, so there is opportunity for improvement there. Monaco has been outrebounded by 3.3 rebounds per game this season despite having five players who average at least 3 rebounds per game. The better the team does on the glass versus Fenerbahce, the better its prospects are.

Fenerbahce is not only second in scoring (86.4 ppg), two-point shooting percentage (58.9%), and three-point shooting percentage (39.8%) in the league this season, but also boasts the league’s best defence, allowing just 73.6 points per game. The Fenerbahce offensive is led by Motley (15.1 ppg), Wilbekin (13.0 ppg), and Guduric (12.6 ppg), with playmaker Nick Calathes (9.1 ppg, 6.0 apg) in charge. For Coach Itoudis’ team, the balanced attack has been crucial, and Monaco will need to use every bit of its depth to stop the visitors in what should be a thrilling match.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other Result (1-5 points difference) at 2.60

Alba Berlin – Crvena Zvezda

In Round 9, newly remodelled Crvena Zvezda (2-6) will travel to ALBA Berlin (3-5) in an attempt to extend its winning streak after picking up its second victory of the year. Due to Nikola Ivanovic’s 16 points and three steals, Zvezda won its first game under new head coach Dusko Ivanovic in Round 8 against ASVEL, 71-67. Despite Procida scoring 13 points, ALBA dropped its fifth straight game at Real Madrid last week after starting 3-0. This will be their ninth meeting in the EuroLeague; in their previous eight meetings with Zvezda, ALBA has only lost once.

ALBA’s perfect start turned into a nightmare after losing its last five games, and it will try to turn things around against a team that was also having trouble up until last week. The hosts continue to rank third in blocks while also ranking first in the league in total assists (22.8) and rebounds (37.4). ALBA excels at many things, but competitors are starting to recognise its game plan. A team that has received a huge morale boost from a win and a coaching change will force the hosts to pay close attention to the little things.

Zvezda has emerged from a downward trend, and now it must capitalise on it. Since ALBA is still averaging about 10 more points per game than this team, which has the second-worst offence (71.3) and the lowest PIR average (72.4) in the league, the team will need to keep improving under Ivanovic. As they currently rank 14th or worse across all ranges, the visitors need to strengthen their defense, act more aggressively, and look for better shooting opportunities. If Zvezda hopes to successfully reverse the trend in Berlin, it will need to pay close attention to people like Jaleen Smith, Luke Sikma, and Christ Koumadje.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 156.5 at 1.90

Macabi – Olympiacos

When Maccabi Tel Aviv plays host to Olympiacos at Menorah Mivtachim Arena, it will want to get back on track. The most recent loss for Maccabi (4-4)—which is 4-1 at home this year—came on Friday against Partizan in Belgrade, Serbia. Olympiacos (6-2) has won its last two games after dropping its previous two. The Reds have won all four of their away games this year, including a 71-82 triumph in Munich last week.

Wade Baldwin (16.0 ppg, 5.0 apg) and Lorenzo Brown (15.5 ppg, 6.4 apg) have been a challenge for opposition guards this season, which has been Maccabi’s strength. Colson, a forward, has also made significant contributions (10.4 ppg).

Olympiacos’ go-to player has been power forward Vezenkov, the league’s leading scorer (20.0 ppg) and leader in PIR (28.2). Kostas Sloukas, a supersub, averages 13.5 points per game and is third in the league in assists (6.6 apg.) and PIR (19.0).

Maccabi and Olympiacos games have historically been dominated by the home teams. Although the margins of victory in their most recent encounters were 17 and 15, three of their prior matches had been decided by a single basket, including an overtime match in Tel Aviv in January 2021. The hosts have won seven of the last nine meetings between them. Due to Maccabi’s recent home performance and Olympiacos’s recent away performance, Tuesday’s game could be another close one.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other Result (1-5 points difference) at 2.60

Milano – Efes

A few key factors may determine the outcome of the Round 9 match between EA7 Milan and two-time defending champion Anadolu Efes. Controlling the game’s pace will be one of the major problems.

Milan prefers to play at a slower pace; this season, it has allowed the second-fewest points in the league (73.8 ppg) and scored the fewest points. Efes ranks fifth in points scored (83.9 ppg) and fifth in points allowed. Efes has the second-fewest turnovers (10.6 per game), which is impressive given the faster tempo. Milan has demonstrated exceptional ball handling skills, committing just 11.5 turnovers per game.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other Result (1-5 points difference) at 2.60

Valencia – Real Madrid

Here, two well-matched teams collide. At La Fonteta, Valencia (4-4) takes on Real Madrid (5-3). Valencia is eager to get back on track after suffering a humiliating 30-point road loss to Virtus Bologna. Real has started to bring back players and is on a three-game winning streak: Following an injury sustained in the EuroLeague Final Four of the previous season, Williams-Goss made his comeback in Round 8. Valencia has prevailed in its previous three home EuroLeague matches against The Whites.

This season, Valencia has been good with the ball, averaging 17.2 assists and only 12.8 turnovers. In Round 8 versus Virtus, it only committed 8 turnovers, but just 6 of its 36 three-point attempts were successful (16.7% 3FG). Klemen Prepelic, Sam Van Rossom, and Xabi Lopez-Arostegui, Valencia’s top perimeter shooters, must be effective from beyond the arc. Bojan Dubljevic, a centre, will play a crucial part in moving Walter Tavares out of the paint so that his teammates have more room to go for the rim.

Real must take advantage of its size advantage in the paint. Petr Cornelie, Vincent Poirier, Eli Ndiaye, and Tavares all combined for 33 points in the first half of Real’s Round 8 game against ALBA Berlin, making 11 of their 14 two-point attempts. In a crucial battle in this game, Williams-Goss and Adam Hanga have the difficult task of stopping Chris Jones. Sergio Rodriguez recorded his first double-double in nearly three years in Round 8, and Real will have a better chance of winning if he engages everyone once more.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 161.5 at 1.90

Barcelona – Partizan

Barcelona will face Partizan in an effort to avenge a Round 8 setback. Before losing to the two-time defending champion Anadolu Efes, Barcelona (5-3) had won three straight games. On Friday night, Partizan (4-4) overcame a deficit to defeat Maccabi and earn its fourth victory in its previous five games. The last time these two teams played was more than nine years ago. Partizan last defeated Barcelona in February 2010, and Barcelona has won the last five meetings between the two teams.

The outcome could vary depending on a wide range of variables, including shooting outside. As the league’s top offensive team with a 40.9% three-point shooting percentage while allowing opponents to shoot a league-high 40.6% from downtown, Partizan is at the opposing ends of the three-point shooting spectrum. In contrast, Barcelona sits sixth in the league (37.5%) for three-point shooting, led by Nicolas Laprovittola (48.1%), who also leads the league with 3.2 threes made per game. Partizan’s defensive play has limited their opponents to 50.2% two-point shooting and 33.9% three-point shooting.

basketball prediction Tip: Partizan Over 75.5 at 1.83
