Efes – Khimki

Two teams going in different directions will square off on Thursday when Anadolu Efes Istanbul (10-9) welcomes Khimki Moscow Region (2-17) for Round 20 in their second game this week. Efes has won three of its previous four games, including the last against ALBA, 84-76, on Tuesday. Khimki is on a 10-game downward spiral, including a 75-87 home loss to Barcelona on Tuesday.

Efes seems to be finding its rhythm in recent weeks and now sits one spot shy of playoffs territory. Khimki has the worst defense in the league, allowing opponents 89.9 points per game, and the hosts will try to take advantage of that. On paper, however, these teams are not that far from each other. Of course, Khimki is loaded with offensive weapons, so despite the result from their previous encounter this season, Efes will be wise to pay attention to all the details to stay on its positive streak.

Efes signed Dzenan Musa, who is set to make his season debut.

Khimki is in danger of falling out of the race for the playoff spots, and the negative wave the team is riding does not help. But this team is loaded with quality players who can win any game at any time, and the tide could turn with just a single victory. The numbers say that Efes and Khimki are not that far apart, so the guests will have to play with heart in Istanbul and show a collective effort, especially on defense, that can bring them back to the winning path.

Janis Timma and Jonas Jerebko have missed the last three games. Greg Monroe has not played since Round 13.

ALBA Berlin – AX Milano

Two teams experiencing different dynamics will square off on Thursday when ALBA Berlin (7-12) hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan (11-7) in their second game each of this double-round week. ALBA, missing coach Aito Garcia Reneses due to COVID and several players with injuries, has lost five of its last six games, including the last one at Anadolu Efes, 84-76. Milan won its second game in a row with a strong home victory against Valencia, 95-80.

ALBA is juggling injuries and has not been able to field a stable lineup lately. Now, it faces one of the strongest rosters in the league. Milan comes off two prestige victories, at Real Madrid and against Valencia, and will seek its first three-game winning streak of the season in Berlin. ALBA has to capitalize on the offensive flow that ranks it second overall in assists while also looking for better options from beyond the arc against a Milan team that is second-most accurate in the league (42.0%) from that range.

Luke Sikma and Niels Giffey are expected to miss several weeks with injuries. Head Coach Aito Garcia Reneses has missed ALBA’s last four games after testing positive for COVID-19. Marcus Eriksson has missed ALBA’s last 10 games.

Milan is on a roll and will look to stay that way in Berlin. For starters, the guests average 5 points more per game and are also playing the third-weakest defense in the league. However, Milan remains at the bottom of the rebounds rankings (29.9 rpg.) and will have to secure those boards to avoid ALBA from running and scoring easily.

Vladimir Micov has missed the team’s last four games. Shavon Shields has not played the last two games due to a thigh injury.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 162.5 at 1.95 with bet365
(Price correct at 14/01/2010, 11:45 CET, subject to change)

Maccabi – Baskonia

Two teams coming off losses earlier will look to end this double-round week on a high note as Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (8-11) welcomes TS Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (9-10) to Israel on Thursday. Maccabi fell to Olympiacos at home in overtime on Tuesday, 87-89, while Baskonia suffered a heavy loss at Fenerbahce, 96-76.

These teams are practically even points scored and allowed, so inspiration will be the factor to watch in this game. Maccabi will have to limit the offensive flow of the guests, who live off their 19.5 assists per game. In overall figures, Maccabi’s average PIR is almost 10 points below Baskonia’s. The hosts could have an edge under the boards, but this game will be as close as they come.

After defeating CSKA last week, Baskonia will look to get back on the right track with another prestige win in Tel Aviv. Both teams compare closely in both stats and records, so expect a close game in which every detail could matter. Maccabi shoots a bit better from the stripe, but Baskonia shows better numbers from the field. The biggest edge the guests have over Maccabi is in assists, so if Baskonia can execute its trademark aggressive defense, it could translate into transition points and the desired win.

basketball prediction Tip: Maccabi Over 80.5 at 1.80 with bet365

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

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
