Khimki – Real Madrid

Two teams coming off losses earlier this week will look to return to the winning path when Khimki Moscow Region (8-11) welcomes Real Madrid (15-4) for Round 20. Khimki fell at home to Valencia, 75-84, for its fourth defeat in a row. On the other side, Real saw its 13-game winning streak snapped at CSKA Moscow, 60-55. Both will look to end this double-round week on a high note.

Khimki has entered a losing dynamic and must get out of it as soon as possible. The hosts still have the third-best offense in the league, and generally shoot better than the guests, but Real is solid as a rock this season, and its loss to CSKA earlier this week can only bring more trouble to the table for Khimki. If the hosts focus on defense, as CSKA did, they could find the way to snap their losing streak.

Real Madrid plays its second game in Moscow this week with the aim to go back to the winning path. The loss at CSKA severed a long winning streak, but that should only be more motivation to stop one of the best offenses in the league. Coming into the game, Real dominates the battle under the boards and averages more PIR overall than Khimki, but the guests will have to pay attention to the hosts’ offense, embodied in sharpshooter Alexey Shved.

Fenerbahce – Barcelona

Two teams in different situations square off on Thursday when Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (8-11) hosts FC Barcelona (13-6) for Round 20. The hosts are on a three-game winning streak, including their victory earlier this week against ASVEL, 86-64, and have finally recovered their injured players. Barcelona has dropped the last three games, including on Tuesday at Maccabi, 92-85, and will look to get back to the winning track in order not to lose contact with the top of the standings.

Fenerbahce seems to have found its rhythm after a slow start to the season, and it was only a matter of time before the team started adding wins. Now, with the full roster available, expect the hosts to win even more games. This time, there is a formidable foe in front of them, which has lost its recent games and will try to win at all costs. Fenerbahce is still the last team in the league in rebounds and Barcelona does a bit better in offense. However, the fans in Istanbul will surely push their team, which is gaining confidence game after game.

After rolling through the first third of the season, Barcelona is getting a taste of the competitiveness of the EuroLeague. The guests will travel to Istanbul determined to put an end to their losing streak. Barcelona will have to try to punish the hosts under the boards and try to run for easy baskets thanks to the second-best figure in the league regarding assists per game.

Maccabi – Milano

Two teams in the middle of the battle for the playoff spots will square off in Round 20 when Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv (13-6) hosts AX Armani Exchange Milan (10-9) on Thursday. Maccabi started a winning streak earlier this week with a home victory against Barcelona, 92-85, and will look to extend it. Milan comes from a road loss at Efes, 88-68, and will look to turn things around again and get back to the winning path.

Maccabi seems to be finding its place these last games and with the fourth-best offense in the league. The team is at a place right now where it looks unstoppable. The hosts average a PIR of 10 more than Milan, and come out on top on practically every stats category. However, they must not forget that the guests won in Italy and that the sheer talent in the Milan roster must never be underestimated. The guests may have gone down in performance compared to a few weeks ago, but the EuroLeague is long and tough for everyone, and controlling aces like Sergio Rodriguez, Luis Scola and Vlado Micov must be a priority.

Milan lands in Tel Aviv after a loss at Efes, but the team had won three of the previous four games right after a hurtful losing streak. The Italian team faces an opponent on the rise, with a slight advantage in percentages on free throws and three-pointers. The team must look to floor general Sergio Rodriguez to distribute the ball. If El Chacho can do his thing, the rest of his teammates will see their options on offense increase.

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.

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.
