Khimki – Efes

Two teams in need of wins face each other on Thursday for Round 10 when Khimki Moscow Region (2-6) hosts Anadolu Efes Istanbul (4-4). After starting with five losses, Khimki has won two of its last three games, including one earlier this week at Zenit, 83-88. On the other side, Efes saw its three-game winning streak snapped at home as it lost to Bayern, 71-74.

After starting the season with severe roster problems, Khimki is rounding into its intended form little by little. Shved is back to his former self, but the team is missing top contributors Devin Booker and Jonas Jerebko. Efes is one of the two bottom teams in the league regarding rebounds, so securing those, especially on defense, will grant Khimki a head start in this game. On the other hand, Khimki is the worst team in the league in steals per game, so the hosts will have to tighten their defense and aggressiveness if they want to beat a team that will go to Moscow hungrier than ever.

Despite having the trio of Shane Larkin, Vasilije Micic and Tibor Pleiss back in action, Efes suffered a painful defeat at home this week. The team will look to bounce back in Russia, and it will do well to push inside shots, as its third-best two-point accuracy in the league, 57.5%, attests. Khimki seems to be struggling a bit on defense, so if Efes manages to circulate the ball the way has done well when everything is clicking, the guests will have a good shot at a recovering win.

Bayern – CSSKA Moscow

Two teams in a sweet moment will play to stay that way on Thursday when FC Bayern Munich (7-2) welcomes CSKA Moscow (6-3) in Round 10. Bayern sits second in the standings and rides a three-game winning streak after dumping host Anadolu Efes Istanbul on Tuesday, 71-74. CSKA’s winning burst is now up to four games after it defeated Zalgiris 78-87 on the road, also on Tuesday. A tie for second place on wins for CSKA or better separation for Bayern are the stakes.

Bayern is on a roll and bursting with self-confidence, especially after knocking off mighty Efes in Istanbul. This time, facing the last EuroLeague champions, the test will be great. CSKA is also on the rise and has the EuroLeague’s second-best percentage from beyond the three-point arc, at 40.2%. The hosts will have to pay attention to those CSKA snipers and put its top-notch defense to the test from the very beginning.

CSKA lands in a city where no team has been able to win since Milan’s overtime escape from Munich in Round 1. The guests have the second-best offense in the league, scoring 82.3 points on average, but it will be facing one of the finest and most aggressive defenses. Bayern plays like a block of players, so CSKA would be wise to pay attention to all of them, all the time. Whether it’s Vladimir Lucic, Paul Zipser, Jalen Reynolds or Baldwin, the damage can come from any direction. Being ready for anything, especially late in the game, will require CSKA’s premium focus if it wants to tie the hosts in the standings.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (+4.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Baskonia – Panathinaikos

Two teams in need of more wins will meet on Thursday night for Round 10 when TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (3-4) hosts Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (2-5). Baskonia snapped a three-game losing streak earlier this week by thrashing Fenerbahce at home, 86-68. The Greens, on the other hand, are in the middle of their own three-game negative streak as they fell in Valencia, 95-83, in the first of their two Spanish stops this week.

Baskonia will look to build on its big win from Tuesday. Panathinaikos arrives to Vitoria-Gasteiz like a wounded animal, which makes the visitors doubly dangerous. Both teams are quite close to each other on many fronts, but the hosts still lead the league with 8.0 steals per game, a big signal of the Baskonia Character and its aggressive defense. Also, the hosts seem to be moving the ball a little better on the offensive end, so if they can run out of their tough defense, they will be in the situation they like.

Panathinaikos has had a slow start this season, and a win at Baskonia could help turn that situation around. Missing such a big producer as Nemanja Nedovic has not helped, but the team has more than enough options to reverse the situation. The Greens also have to pay attention to its 70.2% accuracy from the free-throw line, second-worst in the EuroLeague. All but one of the Panathinaikos losses have been by 8 points or less, so improving those numbers from the foul line is key if the guests want to win close games, as it looks like this one could very well be.

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.
