Zenit – Fenerbahce

Two teams in strong recent form will meet in Russia on Wednesday when Zenit hosts Fenerbahce. Zenit has won three of its last five games, but comes off an 18-point beatdown at FC Barcelona in which it lost two more key players to injury, Alex Renfroe and Colton Iverson. Fenerbahce has climbed to the fringe of the playoff zone by winning five of its last six games, including three in a row on the road.

Anton Pushkoc played a season-high 17 minutes last week and with Colton Iverson sidelined, Zenit will need the likes of Pushkov and Tim Abromaitis to step up play big minutes on the frontline behind Gustavo Ayon and alongside Wil Thomas. Fenerbahce boasts a very dangerous frontcourt, led by reigning EuroLeague MVP Jan Vesely. Moreover, Zenit leads the league in offensive rebounds (12.5 orpg.) and Fenerbahce is last (8.2). Zenit must find ways to maintain that advantage even without one of its best rebounders.

Zenit is a team that is strong in the hustle stats; it leads the league in offensive rebounding (12.5 orpg.) and is second in steals (7.3 spg.). And Fenerbahce is last in rebounding (29.7 rpg.) and has committed the fourth-most turnovers this season (13.6). So shoring up the rebounds and taking care of the ball are musts for Coach Obradovic’s charges. Another big difference between the sides is three-point accuracy; Zenit is second-worst (33.2%) and Fenerbahce second-best (41.0%). Upholding those numbers would put Fenerbahce in a promising position.

Crvena Zvezda – Panathinaikos

After a four-game winning streak, Zvezda lost its last four contests and is looking to change its dynamics with a victory. Panathinaikos saw a three-game winning streak come to an end in Valencia last week. Kevin Punter (14.5 ppg.), Lorenzo Brown (13.7 ppg., 5 apg.) and Vladimir Stimac (12.5 ppg., 5.9 rpg.) are leading Zvezda right now. Jimmer Fredette (14.4 ppg.) is Panathinaikos’s top scorer this season, followed by DeShaun Thomas (14.1 ppg.) and Nick Calathes (13.8 ppg.).

Zvezda has not been outrebounded on its current four-game winning streak, but lost the battle for rebounds in each of its last four losses. Therefore, rebounding the ball at both ends will be critical for the Serbian powerhouse, which relies on Vladimir Stimac, Ognjen Kuzmic and Borisa Simanic to do so. On offense, Lorenzo Brown, Kevin Punter and Billy Baron can make the difference with their outside shooting, outgunning Jimmer Fredette and Tyrese Rice.

Panathinaikos is the top-scoring team in the competition (89.4 ppg.), playing at a very high rhythm, taking over 66 field goal attempts per game and leading the EuroLeague in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.74 per game). Nick Calathes (9.6 apg.) dishes more than half of the team’s assists (18.5 apg.), so making sure the ball is in his hands at the start of each offense is mandatory, as he makes the team’s engine run. Dominating the boards will also be critical against an aggressive, physical team like Zvezda.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-3.0) at 1.95 with bet365
(Price correct at 04/02/2020, 23:40 CET, subject to change)

Maccabi – Khimki

Two teams looking to turn their momentum around will meet on Wednesday when Maccabi hosts Khimki. The Israeli champs have lost their last two games, including their first home loss of the season at the hands of Real Madrid. Khimki has lost six of its last seven games and has been slipping in the standings. Khimki is 2-9 on the road this season.

The potential absence of Scottie Wilbekin may affect Maccabi on offense, but Coach Ioannis Sfairopouos’s team has proven to be as tough as they come on defense and that shouldn’t change. The team leads the league in steals (81 spg.) and fouls committed (23.1) and is second in rebounding (36.1 rpg.). Its 77.0 points allowed per game is best in the league. The key will be for Maccabi to play as tough as usual on defense even against Khimki’s third-ranked offense (85.8 ppg.) while getting Elijah Bryant, Tyler Dorsey or Aaron Jackson to pick up the extra offensive production.

Khimki found one way to beat Maccabi last time by spreading the floor and knocking down 14 three-pointers with five different guys making multiple threes. Forcing Maccabi’s forward to guard the perimeter helped Khimki to grab 13 offensive rebounds. A good shooting night from behind the arc combined with a strong effort on the glass would be a good recipe for winning in Tel Aviv. Maccabi was outrebounded in each of its last two losses.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+7.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 04/02/2020, 23:40 CET, subject to change)

Valencia – Barcelona

Both teams are in the playoff zone right now. Valencia has won seven of its last eight home games and downed Panathinaikos at La Fonteta last week. Barcelona is currently on a three-game winning streak and looking for its eighth road win this season. Bojan Dubljevic (14.4 ppg.), Alberto Abalde (7.5 ppg.) and Quino Colom (7.2 ppg., 4.1 apg.) are leading Valencia right now. Nikola Mirotic (18.5 ppg.) is Barcelona’s top scorer, followed by Brandon Davies (9.9 ppg.) and Malcolm Delaney (9.8 ppg.).

Valencia allows opponents to make a league-high 56.0% of its two-point shots at home, so protecting the paint will be mandatory against Barcelona, a team with effective big men such as Brandon Davies, Nikola Mirotic and Ante Tomic. Jordan Loyd and Sam Van Rossom are sidelined, so players like Quino Colom, Guillem Vives, Alberto Abalde and Vanja Marinkovic will need to make the most out of their playing time. If Valencia rebounds well at both ends and gets Bojan Dubljevic involved down low, it will be hard to beat it at La Fonteta.

Barcelona has some of the best defensive numbers in the competition when playing on the road, allowing just 76.7 points and forcing opponents into poor shooting percentages (51.7% 2FG, 37.1% 3FG). No other team forces more turnovers on average (14.5 per game) when playing on the road. That kind of hustle and defensive effort will be mandatory against a team with a strong home-court advantage such as Valencia. If the game goes down to the wire, Nikola Mirotic and Kyle Kuric must make the difference down the stretch.

AX Milano – ALBA Berlin

  • AX Milanο leads ALBA 3-2 in the EuroLeague.

To make up for Round 18, Milan hosts ALBA Berlin on Tuesday. Because of COVID-19 instances in the Milan team, the game was postponed. On the road, Sergio Rodriguez and Malcolm Delaney combined for 33 points in Milan’s Round 20 victory over FC Barcelona. After beating AS Monaco in Round 17 on December 22, ALBA (6-11) will play its first EuroLeague game. Marcus Eriksson scored 21 points on 5-of-8 three-point shooting in ALBA’s 81-76 win against Milan earlier this season in Berlin.

ASVEL Villeurbanne – Monaco

  • This is the first time ASVEL Villeurbanne will host Monaco in the EuroLeague.
  • Their game in Round 12 was the first time two French League teams played in the EuroLeague this century. ASVEL won the game 84-85 on a buzzer-beating half-court shot by William Howard, who also played for the French League team.

Thursday is a big day for French basketball. LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne will play against AS Monaco on Friday. Both teams have just won, which they hope will start a run in the standings that will get them into the playoffs, so they’re both excited. AVEL (8-9) beat Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (9-9) in Round 17 to end a four-game skid. Their last round 18 match was called off last week. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv lost to Monaco last week, but now the team has two wins out of its last four games. Monaco is now 7-11. ASVEL has a record of 5-4 at home this season, while Monaco has a record of 2-7 on the road so far this season. There were two games between these two teams last month. ASVEL won by one point at home, and Monaco won by two, also at home, but for the French League.

CSKA Moscow – ASVEL Villeurbanne

  • CSKA and ASVEL are surprisingly tied at 3-3 in the Euroleague history.

In its second game of the week, CSKA Moscow (11-7) takes on LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (8-9) in the Russian capital. CSKA comes off a brilliant 74-98 road victory against Panathinaikos OPAP Athens. Toko Shengelia (13.2 ppg., 4.6 rpg.), Alexey Shved (10.8 ppg.) and Johannes Voigtmann (9.8 ppg., 4.4 rpg.) are leading the team right now. ASVEL broke a four-game losing streak with a win against Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul in Round 17, and this is the French team’s first EuroLeague game in 2022. Elie Okobo (16.4 ppg.) has been its top scorer until now, followed by Chris Jones (13.9 ppg.) and William Howard (7.3 ppg.). CSKA is 10-4 against ASVEL in European competitions. Earlier this season, ASVEL beat CSKA 70-68 in Round 6.

Real Madrid – Baskonia

  • Baskonia has a 7-6 lead against Real Madrid in this century Euroleague.

Real Madrid (14-3) hosts Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (7-11) on Friday in a battle of Spanish League rivals at Wizink Center. Real is on a three-game winning streak led by Walter Tavares (12.2 ppg., 7.3 rpg., 1.9 bpg.), Rudy Fernandez (6.0 ppg., 3.3 rpg.) and Nigel Williams-Goss (8.2 ppg.). Baskonia comes off a brilliant home win against FC Barcelona and looks for its third straight victory, led by Wade Baldwin IV (12.1 ppg.), Steven Enoch (10.2 ppg., 6.0 rpg.) and Rokas Giedraitis (11.4 ppg.). Baskonia is 8-7 against Real in European competition. Real, however, thrashed Baskonia 60-88 at Buesa Arena in Round 12 behind 13 points from Fabien Causeur.

Bayern – Monaco

  • This is their second meeting in the Euroleague. Monaco won the opposite fixture comfortably (94-71) in November.

FC Bayern Munich hosts AS Monaco on Thursday in a showdown between two teams on the outside of the playoff zone with the hope to make a run in. Bayern (8-10) comes off a victory over Zalgiris Kaunas on Tuesday in which Ognjen Jaramaz scored a career-high 16 points. Monaco (7-11) won its last game against Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, but that was two weeks ago. While the 2021 EuroCup champs will have fresher legs, they may also be rustier. Bayern is 6-3 at home this season and Monaco has lost seven of its last eight road games. When they met earlier this season in Round 9, Monaco pounded Bayern 94-71 behind 18 points and 5 assists from Mike James.

Barcelona – Anadolu Efes

  • Barcelona has a 13-12 lead against Efes in this century Euroleague.

In a rematch of last season’s Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Championship Game, FC Barcelona (15-4) hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul (9-9) at Palau Blaugrana on Thursday. Barcelona is coming off back-to-back losses after falling at home to AX Armani Exchange Milan on Tuesday. Nikola Mirotic (17.9 ppg.) has been its top scorer until now, followed by Brandon Davies (10.9 ppg.) and Kyle Kuric (9.5 ppg.). Efes is set to play its first EuroLeague game in 2022 led by reigning EuroLeague MVP Vasilije Micic (16.3 ppg.), Shane Larkin (14.2 ppg., 5.1 apg.) and Tibor Pleiss (10.6 ppg., 4.3 rpg.). Earlier this season, Barcelona edged Efes 93-95 in overtime in Round 13 behind 24 points from Sertac Sanli.
