Zenit – Baskonia

Zenit comes off its fourth road win this season but has only managed to win once in front of its home crowd. Baskonia comes off a home loss against Fenerbahce and wants to bounce back right away. Will Thomas (10.5 ppg.), Austin Hollins (10.1 ppg.) and Mateusz Ponitka (9.8 ppg.) are leading Zenit right now. Toko Shengelia (16.9 ppg.) is Baskonia’s top scorer this season, followed by Nik Stauskas (9.4 ppg.) and Shavon Shields (8.6 ppg.).

Zenit is the top offensive rebounding team in the competition at 12.1 per night. Being able to sustain that number without Ayon was a challenge, but Zenit succeeded last week, pulling down 13 offensive boards against Khimki. Running its offense through Ponitka and Thomas, its most effective players, will be critical, as well as cutting down turnovers; Zenit had 15 against Khimki and is averaging 13.3 so far this season.

Even though the numbers have improved since Coach Dusko Ivanovic joined the team, Baskonia still ranks 15th in three-point shooting (32.8%). Getting players like Nik Stauskas and Matt Janning involved will be an important task for Pierria Henry, who is seeing most of the minutes at point guard. Preventing Zenit from crashing the offensive glass is also critical. For that, Baskonia relies on its centers, Youssoupha Fall and Michael Eric.

Crvena Zvezda – Zalgiris

At the end of November, these teams were one win apart, but since then Zvezda (9-9) has changed things up, on the bench and the roster, and soared into the playoff positions with a four-game winning streak. Zalgiris (5-13) is now tied for last place despite winning twice in the last three games, making every tipoff crucial now for a team that was in the Final Four two seasons ago and in the playoffs last year.

The hosts had their outside game locked down with Brown and Baron, and now have center Vladimir Stimac averaging 13.3 points since arriving three games ago. That inside-outside balance makes Zvezda tougher to beat and requires opponents to stop it or match it, which is not easy when the Belgrade home crowd gets involved. Zvezda commits a lot of fouls, however, and shoul be wary of Zalgiris, which draws more than all but one other team. A lot of free throws for the visitors could neutralize some of that home cookin’ in Belgrade.

Zalgiris can take heart in having much better two-point and free-throw percentages than Zvezda while still matching the hosts in average three-pointers made. Zvezda, however, has the best defense in the EuroLeague over the last three games and has held five opponents under 68 points this season. Zalgiris struggles at defensive rebounding and rim intimidation, which can deflate a team that doesn’t score a lot. Both will be required if Zalgiris hopes to withstand the Belgrade crowd and avenge its earlier loss to Zvezda.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.50 with bet365
(Price correct at 15/01/2020, 11:10 CET, subject to change)

Panathinaikos – Bayern

Panathinaikos (10-8) goes home to OAKA for two games this week to try to arrest a slide that has seen it lose four of its last six games. Bayern (6-12) is on a four-game losing streak but showed some progress last week, competing against CSKA until the very end of the game. Jimmer Fredette (15.1 ppg.), DeShaun Thomas (13.9 ppg.), Nick Calathes (13.7 ppg., 9.3 apg.) are leading Panathinaikos this season. Greg Monroe (12.5 ppg.) is Bayern’s top scorer, followed by Vladimir Lucic (12.1 ppg.) and Maodo Lo (9.5 ppg.).

Panathinaikos is the highest-scoring team in the competition (88.1 ppg.), taking more two-point shots than any other team (42.8 per game) with an excellent accuracy rate (55.8%). That means rhythm is everything for Panathinaikos. Point Calathes and Tyrese Rice will keep pushing the tempo and trying to get everyone involved. With so many scorers, being so unpredictable on offense is the Greens’ biggest strength.

Bayern is allowing opponents to get 33.8 rebounds on average but CSKA pulled down 46 against the German powerhouse last week. Other than doing a better job at boxing out, which is critical against a strong, physical team like Panathinaikos, Bayern needs to get Monroe involved down low, and rely on Lucic, Petteri Koponen and Nihad Dedovic to make the difference at both wings. Lo has a critical role against Fredette on defense, too.

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 FInal Four 2022

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
