Zenit – Maccabi

Zenit St Petersburg (18-14) will reach the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs with a victory if both Real Madrid (19-14) and TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (18-15) lose. It could be eliminated with a loss. Kevin Pangos (12.5 ppg.), Arturas Gudaitis (9.8 ppg.) and Billy Baron (9.6 ppg.) have been its top scorers this season. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (14-19) plays its final game in this EuroLeague season. Scottie Wilbekin (14.0 ppg.), Tyler Dorsey (11.1 ppg.) and Elijah Bryant (9.2 ppg.) have been its main pillars until now.

Zenit is one of the best defensive teams in the competition, allowing just 74.8 points per game. It has held opponents to low shooting percentages (52.4% 2FG, 35.8% 3FG). Zenit, however, forces fewer turnovers than any other team in the competition, 11.7 per night. Playing physical against Wilbekin and Chris Jones, Maccabi’s main ballhandlers, should be important in this decisive game. On offense, Pangos will run the show and Zenit must take advantage of its athletic frontcourt, led by Poythress and Thomas.

Maccabi’s motivation should never be questioned as it looks for its final EuroLeague victory of the season. The Israeli powerhouse comes off a 30-point home victory against Khimki Moscow Region and wants to wrap it up in style. On offense, Wilbekin and Dorsey should be ready to pull the trigger from downtown to make Zenit reach out and spread the floor. On defense, Zizic, Angelo Caloiaro and Oz Blayzer should expect a physical battle in the paint with extended playing time due to Othello Hunter’s absence.

  • Yovel Zoosman remains out with a knee injury.
  • Othello Hunter has not played in the last five games.
  • Omri Casspi’s participation is questionable for the regular-season finale.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-8.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 09/04/2021, 09:10 CET, subject to change)

Olympiacos – Khimki

Olympiacos Piraeus (15-18) is out of playoff contention, but wants to finish its Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season with a home victory. Sasha Vezenkov (11.2 ppg.), Kostas Sloukas (11.2 ppg.) and Shaquielle McKissic (10.8 ppg.) have been its top scorers this season. Khimki Moscow Region (4-29) looks for its first road victory since mid-November. Jordan Mickey (15.6 ppg., 5.8 rpg., 1.5 bpg.), Errick McCollum (11.4 ppg.) and Sergey Karasev (5.4 ppg.) are leading the team right now.

Olympiacos has won four of its last six games and is finishing the season strong. Vezenkov has been outstanding lately, averaging 19.5 points in those six games, so Olympiacos should keep running its offense through its versatile forward with unlimited shooting range. On defense, stopping Mickey down low should be the main priority, as Khimki tries to find him as often as possible. Boxing out and controlling the tempo through Sloukas and Vassilis Spanoulis are two of the biggest keys for the Reds.

  • Kostas Papanikolaou has missed Olympiacos’s last 18 games.
  • Hassan Martin is sidelined with a knee injury.

Khimki was outrebounded 45-34 against Maccabi earlier this week. It has been one of its main problems all season long; Khimki averages 30.9 rebounds and allows 36.5 boards on average. Khimki has also allowed opponents to shoot with very good percentages, especially from beyond the arc – 43.8%. If Khimki can win the battle of rebounds, it has enough talented players who can make the difference on offense plus great three-point shooters like Sergey Monia, Egor Vialtsev and Karasev to finish the season on a winning note.

  • Devin Booker has missed the last 12 games.
  • Stefan Jovic has not played in the last 11 games.
  • Janis Timma has not played in the last 8 games.
  • Jordan Mickey is sidelined with an injury.

basketball prediction Tip: Sasha Vezenkov (Olympiacos) Over 14.5 points at 1.80 with bet365

AX Milano – Efes

AX Armani Exchange Milan hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul in what could be a preview of a playoff series. Both teams have already clinched post-season berths and Milan (20-13) can clinch home-court advantage for its best-of-five quarterfinals with a victory. Efes (22-11) will finish the regular season in either second or third place and win could, depending on other results, set up a situation where Efes is third, Milan sixth and they meet again in the playoffs. Milan has slumped to lose three of its last four games, while Efes has won 11 of its last 12 and scored in triple figures in four of those games

Though these two teams are among the best at shooting from downtown – Milan (41.3%) is second most accurate and Efes (39.7%) fourth, Milan is third-worst at two-pointers (51.6%) and Efes (57.1%) is third-best. Milan, which is also third from bottom with 16.2 assists per game, must circulate the ball better to generate good looks in the paint for Kyle Hines, Kaleb Tarczewski and Zach LeDay to balance out the team’s strong perimeter scorers.

  • Malcolm Delaney has missed the last seven games after undergoing an arthroscopic cleaning of his left knee, but should return.

Efes leads the league in scoring with 84.3 points per per game and when it controls the pace and generates points, good things happen for Coach Ergin Ataman’s charges. Efes is 19-0 this season when it has scored at least 80 points. Considering Milan is averaging 80.9 points, a high-scoring game may be in store which bodes well for the visitors.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 161.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 09/04/2021, 09:10 CET, subject to change)

Barcelona – Bayern

The final game in Round 34 – and the final regular-season game for the two participants – pits FC Barcelona against FC Bayern Munich. For top-ranked Barcelona (24-9), the game is a chance to stay in form heading into the playoff. However, for Bayern (20-13), the home-court advantage could potentially be on the table. Bayern enters Round 34 knowing that with a win and other results going its way, fourth place is a possibility. On the other hand, a loss with certain other results could drop Bayern as far as eighth, which would result in a playoff series against Barcelona.

Barcelona has an elite defense and it’s extremely efficient when shooting the ball; the team’s true-shooting percentage of 52.0% is second in the league. The team’s biggest weakness is the average of 14.7 turnovers per game it has committed. Considering how potent its attack is, every turnover represents points lost and against a Bayern team that is second in the league in steals (8.1 spg.), that is all the more so the case. Fewer turnovers strengthen Barcelona’s chances.

Stopping MVP for March Nikola Mirotic is a must for Bayern and it will rely on JaJaun Johnson and James Gist to try to get the job done. Of course, Bayern will have to do much more against the league’s best defense; Barcelona has help opponents to 73.3 points per game this season. Bayern has made the fewest threes in the league (7.3 per game) and is ranked 17th in two-point shooting (50.5%), which are numbers it must raise to improve its chances in Barcelona.

  • Nihad Dedovic has missed the team’s last nine games.
  • Robin Amaize has missed the last 16 games.

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 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 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
