Yes, these are the best Euroleague basketball tips you can possibly find and appear under each mini game preview.

Crvena Zvezda – Zalgiris

Zalgiris (10–15) will look to continue climbing the standings with a trip to direct rival Zvezda (10–15) after securing two fantastic home victories last week. Nedovic, who scored 27 and 21 points in the two games last week, helping to defeat Valencia but not enough to upset Barcelona, is a shooting threat that the visitors should be mindful of. Laurynas Birutis, who has averaged 14.3 points per game over the past four games, is a valuable inside presence for Zalgiris. In the clubs’ Round 2 meeting, Rolands Smits was instrumental, scoring 18 points and pulling down seven rebounds to help Zalgiris win 79-74.

Panathinaikos – Fenerbahce

Fourth vs sixth place in a huge game with a playoff vibe when Panathinaikos (15-10) hosts Fenerbahce (15-10). When the teams faced off in Round 3, Georgios Papagiannis scored 15 points to lead the Turkish side to an easy 83-69 victory. He and the scorching Jonathan Motley, who has scored in double figures in five straight games, will try to give Fenerbahce the physical advantage against a Panathinaikos squad hoping to get back on track after losing to Zalgiris last week. Ergin Ataman and Sarunas Jasikevicius, two of the league’s most outspoken managers, will further add to the heated environment that the Greens may expect after winning five straight games in Athens.

Virtus Bologna – Monaco

Fifth-placed Monaco (15-10) will try to become the first visiting team to win at third-place Virtus (16-9) since October in another exciting game. Monaco, which has won four straight games, is riding high. However, when the sides met in October, the Italian squad surprised everyone by winning 59-83. The visitors will look for Donta Hall and Donatas Moteijunas to defend the backboards more forcefully when they face Bryant Dunston and Toko Shengelia because Virtus grabbed an incredible 46 rebounds in that game. Mike James (2.7) and Marco Belinelli (2.8 triples per game), two of the league’s most effective long-range shooters, are also included in the contest.

Winning Margin 3-way 1-5 points at 2.70

Barcelona – ALBA Berlin

Second-bottom hosts second-bottom as Barcelona (17-8) welcomes ALBA (5-15), who has only one road victory this season, in an attempt to win six straight at home. The Spanish team will not be taking this task lightly, having lost shockingly in Berlin in December, 74–70. Barca will try to contain Matt Thomas, who lead ALBA with 13 points that day and has made multiple three-pointers in seven of the previous 11 games. Thomas is a dangerous outside shooter. In addition, the host will be hoping that shooting guard Dario Brizuela, who scored 20 points on 6-of-7 three-point shooting in the team’s convincing victory against Zvezda last week, can hang onto this wonderful moment.
