CSKA Moscow – Efes

Two of the top teams in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague clash on Tuesday when CSKA Moscow hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul. CSKA (10-3) has now won eight games in a row and is tied for the best record in the league. Efes (7-6) has lost two of its last three games and is looking to regain the form that saw it top the standings last season. CSKA is 5-1 on its home floor this season while Efes is 5-2 on the road.

CSKA not only leads the EuroLeague in scoring (83.1 ppg.) paced by Mike James, but also tops the league in offensive rebounds (11.9). Efes is last in the league with just 29.6 rebounds per game. The recipe of controlling the glass at both ends and pushing the pace could be what paves the way for a CSKA victory.

The magic number for the visitors may be 80. Efes has struggled to find a rhythm this season in part due to injures; only three players have appeared in all of the team’s games so far. However, then the offense is working, things have gone well: Efes is 5-0 then it has scored at least 80 points. Conversely, the team is 1-5 when it has allowed at least 80.

Krunoslav Simon is suffering from a back injury.

Fenerbahce – Milano

Two struggling teams will look to turn things around on Tuesday when Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan. Fenerbahce (5-8) has lost five of its last six games to fall to 14th in the standings. However, it has played the majority of its games on the road and now starts a run of three of its next four games at home, during which it hopes to turn things around. Milan (7-5) has dropped two of its last three games and is 3-3 on the road. The game features the return of former Fenerbahce hero Luigi Datome to Istanbul for the first time since leaving the club over the summer.

Fenerbahce is last in the league in scoring (73.1 ppg.) and has allowed the most rebounds (35.9). The two troubles go hand-in-hand as Fenerbahce is missing second-chance opportunities and failing to score much in transition. Jan Vesely, Danilo Barthel, Ahmet Duverioglu and Dyshawn Pierre need to take control of the glass to boost the team’s chances.

Milan is second in the league in scoring (82.5 ppg.), in part because it is also atop the charts in three-point shooting (41.3%). However, it is also allowing 81.1 points with opponents making 40.7% of their threes. Turning up the pressure on defense could go a long way toward a road win in Istanbul.

basketball prediction Tip: Under 155.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 15/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Zalgiris – Baskonia

Zalgiris Kaunas will try to build some momentum after snapping a six-game losing streak last week when it hosts TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Tuesday. Zalgiris (6-7) has lost its last five home games and needs to restore its advantage at Zalgirio Arena. Baskonia (6-6) had won four of five before losing at home to Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv last week. Baskonia is 2-2 on the road this season.

Defense has been the story for Zalgiris this season; the Lithuanian champs have held opponents to 70.3 points in wins, but 87.6 points in losses. Setting the game rhythm and causing trouble for the Baskonia’s shooters could be the difference in this game.

Baskonia has allowed the third-fewest points in the league this season (73.4 ppg.) and is outrebounding its opponents by an average of 5.6 per game. Strong defense and great rebounding is always a recipe for success and all the more so on the road, especially versus a Zalgiris side averaging just 30.1 rebounds per game.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 at 1.71 with bet365
(Price correct at 15/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Crvena Zvezda – ALBA Berlin

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade will look to turn things around on Tuesday against an ALBA Berlin side that has just hit its stride. Zvezda (4-9) has lost four games in a row and has dropped three straight at home. ALBA (5-7) has won its last two games and three of its last four. The German champs have already won twice on the road this season.

The magic number for Zvezda may be 80. Zvezda has scored 80 points only three times this season and was victorious each time. Conversely, it has allowed 80 points only four times and is 1-3 in those games. To improve its chances of getting to 80, the hosts must improve on their league-low two-point shooting (48.3%).

ALBA has allowed the third-most points to opponents this season (82.3 ppg.) and part of the reason is that it’s given up 57.1% on two-pointers. The visitors need Ben Lammers, Johannes Thiemann and Sikma to lock down the paint to improve the team’s chances of scoring another road win.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 158.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 15/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Panathinaikos – Real Madrid

  • In their clashes since 2000, Real Madrid holds a 19-10 edge over Panathinaikos and has won 10 in a row. Panathinaikos was eliminated by Real Madrid in the EuroLeague Playoffs in both 2018 and 2019.

Panathinaikos (4-8) looks to get back on track at home on Tuesday against a long-time international rival, Real (8-5), that has been almost flawless since the end of October. Panathinaikos has been up and down, knocking off two higher-ranked teams in recent weeks, but losing at home to Zalgiris by double digits in Round 13. Real has won seven of its last eight, the single defeat coming at the buzzer on the court of standings co-leader CSKA Moscow.

The Greens rank third with 11.5 offensive rebounds per game and need to keep that up for second-chance opportunities to offset a disadvantage of 51.9% to 56.7% in two-point accuracy. But victory will be even closer the hosts play solid one-on-one defense against the array of talents on Real, but particularly against guards Sergio Llull and Nico Laprovittola, who need to get the ball to their teammates for things to happen. Panathinaikos gives up the second-most points of any defense, 83.9 per game, and Real will take advantage of that leakiness if given half a chance.

Real will challenge the hosts with superior size and shooting ability at forward, where Alberto Abalde, Trey Thompkins and Anthony Randolph make a higher rate of three-point shots than any Panathinaikos player. The visitors rank first with 10.6 triples made per game while Panathinaikos gives up 41.3% of those shots, second-worst in the league. Real would do just as well taking the game to the free throw line, where they are making 81.0% of their shots to the Greens’ league-low 71.4%.

basketball prediction Tip: Real Under 84.5 at 1.80 with bet365
(Price correct at 15/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Euroleague Tips with Previews – Thursday matches

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague continues with round 21 containing a clasico in Spain and a massive derby in Belgrade. None of the rest of the games though will be an easy task for the favourites. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Real Madrid – Barcelona

El Clasico’s latest round is a must-see battle between two of the co-leaders of Euroleague. Barcelona (13-7) has won three straight road games, as well as achieved a thrilling triumph at Palau Blaugrana in Round 2 when Sergio Llull missed an attempted game-winner at the buzzer. Real (13-7) will be looking to rebound from a bad showing at Olympiacos last week, and will need on another dominant performance from Walter Tavares to control the paint in what will undoubtedly be a rough contest.

Over 160.5 at 1.90

Alba Berlin – Valencia

Valencia (10-10) will aim to make it four wins in a row when it travels to ALBA Berlin (6-14) for a rematch of the EuroCup Finals from 2010 and 2019. Valencia has been plagued by injury issues recently, but important creator Chris Jones is now available, and new signing Shannon Evans, who leads the Spanish League in scoring this season, might make his debut. ALBA will look to former Valencia forward Luka Sikma for inspiration as it looks to rebound from successive losses and rekindle its fading playoff aspirations.

2 (+3.5) at 1.90

Asvel Villerbaunne – Fenerbahce

Fenerbahce (13-7) hopes to keep its share of top place with a win over ASVEL (7-13), which is searching for its first home win in four games. The Turkish titan’s three-game winning streak has been fueled by big man Johnathan Motley, who has averaged 17.7 points and 11.3 rebounds in that span. The struggle for inside supremacy between Motley and ASVEL’s Youssoupha Fall, who has scored in double figures in four straight games, will be crucial.

2 (-3.5) at 1.90

Monaco – Milano

Monaco (12-8) will look to add to the misery for Milan (6-14), which has plummeted to the bottom of the rankings with four successive losses. The home team has won the last seven games involving Monaco, including a Round 15 loss to Milan in Italy. Ettore Messina’s men overcame a 17-point deficit in that game by launching a 19-0 run in the last session, so Monaco coach Sasa Obradovic won’t need to encourage his players to compete for the full 40 minutes this time.

Over 154.5 at 1.90

Panathinaikos – Zalgiris

Zalgiris (12-8) visits struggling Panathinaikos (7-13) in pursuit of its fifth straight victory. Last week’s comeback triumph over Zvezda was secured by Edgaras Ulanovas, who can always be counted on to perform as Zalgiris’ emotional leader. But, maybe more than any other club, the Lithuanians rely on teamwork rather than individual brilliance, especially with a defence that has allowed just 76.2 points per game, the league’s second-lowest mark.

Winning margin 3-way: Any Other Result (1-5 points) at 2.60

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The Euroleague action for 2023 continues non-stop. We are already in round 19, therefore in the second half of the regular season. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Anadolu Efes – Bayern

Shane Larkin’s return to fitness has given defending champion Efes (10-9) an extra dimension as it looks to cement its spot in the top eight by defeating visiting Bayern (7-12) after an outstanding win in Barcelona last week. The German squad has lost five straight away games, but overcame Efes 81-78 in November in Munich. On that occasion, offensive rebounding was crucial, with Bayern grabbing 18, so Efes will be determined to play with more physicality this time around.

Over 156.5 at 1.90

Zalgiris – Crvena Zvezda

At the Final Four venue, Zalgirio Arena, a duel between two of this season’s most interesting dark horses will take place, with Zalgiris (11-8) trying to make it four wins in a row and Zvezda (10-9) looking to build on last week’s devastating win over Monaco. Zvezda now leads the series after a four-point home win against Zalgiris a month ago, thanks to Luca Vildoza’s career-high 27 points. Now, Zvezda must overcome a Zalgiris defence that allowed only 61 points in last week’s victory in Milan.

1 (-2.5) at 1.90

Olympiacos – Real Madrid

After taking full ownership of first place with a pair of road wins last week, Real (13-6) will look to maintain that position as it travels to Piraeus to face second-place Olympiacos (12-7) in a playoff-style matchup. These are also the competition’s top two scoring clubs, with Olympiacos (85.2 points per game) edging Real (84.4), and everything leads to another spectacular battle between two European titans. Olympiacos already won 87-89 in Madrid in October on the strength of a spectacular game-winning shot by Kostas Sloukas.

Real Madrid Under 79.5 at 1.83

Milano – Asvel Villeurbanne

Two bottom-of-the-standings teams whose playoff ambitions require a huge boost meet in Milan (6-13) as Milan welcomes ASVEL (6-13). The hosts are on a three-game losing streak, while ASVEL has lost five in a row due to injury issues. Because these are the league’s two lowest-scoring clubs (Milan 69.6 points per game; ASVEL 74.4), the winner should be determined by which team can find more offensive fluency.

Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.

Fenerbahce – Monaco

Two of the four clubs tied for second meet to kick off the week in style, with Fenerbahce (12-7) welcoming Monaco (12-7). The Turkish squad, which has won two games in a row, will be hoping that big man Johnathan Motley can keep up his excellent form after winning the Round 19 MVP award. Monaco is coming off its worst performance of the season, a 24-point loss to Zvezda, and must re-ignite an attack that has scored only 60 and 68 points in the last two games.

Over 161.5 at 1.90

Maccabi – Alba Berlin

Maccabi (10-9), with the competition’s joint-best home record (8-1), will aim to extend that – and also stay in the playoffs – with a visit from ALBA (6-13), which saw its three-game winning streak ended last week with a tough loss to Real Madrid. Both teams will attempt to dominate the boards: Maccabi leads the league in offensive rebounding with 12.5 per game, while ALBA, which has won only one of its previous eight games in Tel Aviv, is third with 11.7.

Maccabi Over 88.5 at 2.10

Baskonia – Barcelona

In a Spanish derby with everything on the line, Baskonia (11-8) will try to halt a two-game losing streak against Barcelona (12-7), who has a point to prove after last week’s home setback to Efes. Baskonia, which has won six straight at home, will be hoping to have long-range shooting specialist Markus Howard return from injury, while Barcelona will be hoping to see point guard Tomas Satoransky return to give more order to an offence that has been uneven in recent weeks.

2 at 1.75

Virtus Bologna – Panathinaikos

After snapping a six-game losing streak with a spirited win against Maccabi last week, Panathinaikos (7-12) looks to continue its upward trajectory with a trip to Virtus (8-11). Virtus, who lost both games at home during the double-round week, will look to improve its defence after conceding 87 and 85 points respectively. Panathinaikos will be hoping that Paris Lee continues to shine in the backcourt after scoring 21 points in their last game.

2 (+5.5) at 1.90

Valencia – Partizan

Valencia (9-10) hosts Partizan (9-10) in a clash of direct rivals just outside the playoffs. Valencia has overcome many injury absences to win three of its last four home games, but its patched-up team will need to produce a good defensive performance to contain one of the league’s most dangerous attackers. Partizan is seventh in two-point shooting accuracy (56.2%) and fourth in three-point shooting accuracy (37.8%), and has scored at least 83 points in each of the last four games.
