Efes – Milano

Two contenders coming from different directions will square off in Round 15 on Thursday when Anadolu Efes Istanbul (7-7) welcomes AX Armani Exchange Milan (8-5) to Turkey. Efes is on a three-game losing streak, the last defeat coming earlier this week in Moscow against CSKA, 100-65. Milan snapped a two-game losing run with a convincing road win also in Istanbul, against Fenerbahce, by 71-79.

Efes is in a dangerous place and will need to get a win as soon as possible to get back to a positive trend. The team is averaging 77 points per game, and that will have to go up if it wants to start adding more wins. Efes presents solid numbers in two-point shots, but Milan’s 41.4% from beyond the arc is second-best in the league, so the hosts will have to pay attention to the visitors’ snipers. The biggest black spot in Efes’s numbers this year is under the boards, with the weakest figures in the league at this point (29.6 rpg.).

Milan comes off a prestige win and will not have to travel far for this second game this week, so that could be a big bonus for the guests. Milan’s main weapon is long-range shooting, but while Efes is last in rebounds, Milan follows suit with just 30.1 boards per game. The team that manages to step up on that front will have solid options to take this win. Also, the guests will have to lock in on defense to watch a consolidated Efes team that will want to win at all costs.

Zalgiris – Fenerbahce

Two teams trending in opposite directions will meet up on Thursday in Lithuania when Zalgiris Kaunas (7-7) hosts Fenerbahce Bekos Istanbul (5-9) for Round 15 in their second game of the double-round week. Zalgiris stepped out of a deep hole and managed to take back-to-back wins in its last games, including one earlier this week against Baskonia, 92-73. On the other side, Fener has lost six of its last seven games, including the last one at home against Milan, 71-79.

Zalgiris seems to have found some momentum again and will try to exploit it even some more against the worst offense in the league. The hosts have the best three-point accuracy in the league and Fenerbahce is the second-worst for two-pointers, so Zalgiris has a good chance to keep adding wins if it can exploit those differences. Despite injuries, the guests are an experienced team with quality names, so the hosts will have to watch for those 6.1 steals per game.

Fenerbahce is in a tough situation and needs to start adding wins at a steady pace to not lose track of the playoff spots. The team has the worst offense in the league, and also the third-lowest average PIR. Injuries have not helped, either. However, the guests seem to hold a slight edge over the hosts on defense, which they’ll need to stay strong at as they try to find the way on offense. Zalgiris also leads the league in free-throw accuracy, however, so keeping the hosts off the stripe could prove decisive.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.70 with bet365
(Price correct at 17/12/2020, 09:00 CET, subject to change)

Panathinaikos – ALBA Berlin

Two teams in opposite places will clash on Thursday for Round 15 when Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (4-9) welcomes red-hot ALBA Berlin (6-7) in their second game of a double-round week. The Greens lost six of their last eight games, including one earlier this week against Real Madrid, 93-97, after two overtimes. On the other hand, ALBA has won four in a row, the last in Belgrade against Zvezda, 84-90, also in overtime.

The Greens are in need of wins, and that could be a double-edged sword. In their last four wins, ALBA has drained a total 50 threes, so the hosts will have to put in extra effort to stop that barrage from falling also at OAKA. ALBA is also the second-best team in the league dishing assists, so in order to have solid options for a recovery win, Panathinaikos will have to push it hard on the defensive end.

ALBA is on a roll, and the confidence that team has right now is something that cannot be shown in stats. However, they play against a wounded animal in need of wins, and that’s another intangible that sits as a major obstacle. Panathinaikos has the second-weakest defense in the league, and the German will seek to exploit that with its quick-moving style leading to many assists and threes. If the plan works, ALBA will be in a good position to start thinking about some bigger goals than those it had in mind just one month ago.

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
