Yes, these are the best Euroleague basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.
Fenerbahce – Real Madrid
Real (10-0) continues its double-round week by travelling to face Fenerbahce (5-5) at home, a team that has won all four games this season. Real defeated Maccabi (70-99) on Tuesday. A game featuring the league’s top three shot blockers—Walter Tavares of Real Madrid (1.7 bpg), Vincent Poirier, and Georgios Papagiannis of Fener—show it will be an extremely physical contest. Hezonja is putting together an exceptionally precise season, converting 60.5% of his two-point attempts and 44.4% from deep. Guduric, an opponent he will face in many occasions on Thursday, is another player who possesses explosive scoring potential. Guduric, who returned from injury in the previous week’s loss at Virtus, will be looking to regain his best form and so is Fener who did not have a game to play on Tuesday and can win here.

Monaco – Olympiacos
A significant encounter between the fifth and sixth-placed teams awaits in a rematch of last season’s semifinal, as Monaco (6-4) hosts Olympiacos (6-4). The Reds have won their last three games and have the third-ranked defence in the league, allowing 75.5 points per contest. In Baskonia, Monaco abruptly ended a losing streak on a game-winning putback layup by Blossomgame. Mike James once more demonstrated his prowess with 28 points, 8 rebounds, and 5 assists. Alec Peters, a candidate for MVP in November, will test the perimeter defence of Monaco. The host also possesses an abundance of long-range weapons, such as Diallo, who has converted 43.3% of his three-point attempts this season, including 2 of 3 against Baskonia last week. But tis might not be a high scoring game. It never is between those two.

Maccabi – ALBA Berlin
Located in Belgrade, Maccabi (5-5) will host its second ‘home’ game of the week against ALBA (1-9), which is still looking for its first road victory of the season. ALBA must not only consider Lorenzo Brown’s significance as Maccabi’s primary playmaker, but also direct its attention towards Tamir Blatt, a former player of theirs who currently rates fifth in the league in assists with 5.4 per game. Despite facing challenges in nearly all statistical categories, ALBA holds the league lead in steals, with Procida securing the third-most with 1.8 per night. Furthermore, in order to disrupt the flow of a Maccabi offence that is paced at a rapid rate and is led by Brown and Blatt, whose average of 20.4 assists per game is the second-highest in the league, those ball-hawking abilities will be crucial. Maccabi, which was defeated humiliatingly 70-99 at home by Real on Tuesday, will be seeking to recover as quickly as feasible.

Bayern – Virtus Bologna
Last week’s double overtime victory at ASVEL was one of the most remarkable in the EuroLeague. Bayern (4-6) will seek to build further momentum against Virtus (7-3), which is highly in contention for the playoffs. Pablo Laso, the head coach of Bayern Munich, will devise a strategy centred on containing Shengelia, Virtus’ leading scorer with an average PIR of 22.6. The shooting of Belinelli, who averages 13.1 points per game on 44.6% three-point shooting, is an additional menace from the Italian team. Francisco, whose late pair of three-pointers were essential to Bayern’s victory at ASVEL and who has now made at least one three-pointer in nine of ten games this season, can counter that. This looks like a tight encounter.
3-Way Winning Margin – No win more than 6p. at 2.65
Milano – Zalgiris
Two of the four teams presently tied for 12th place will meet in the north part Italy. Milan (4-6), which is rapidly improving, will host the unstable but always dangerous Zalgiris (4-6). Zalgiris has lost five of its last six games, including three consecutive road trips, and will be looking to come back to winning mode. Lo, who scored a career-high 32 points on 6/7 three-point shooting in the Italian team’s Round 9 victory over Crvena Zvezda, will attempt to maintain his leadership role in a Milan backcourt that has at times fallen short this season. Evans, who has maintained consistency despite Zalgiris’s inconsistent season with an average of 15.0 points on 45.5% three-point shooting, will oppose him.

Partizan – Panathinaikos
Obradovic admitted that it is always psycologically hard to face Panathinaikos (6-4), which is growing in confidence and travelled to Belgrade to face Partizan (4-6). The Serbian team has struggled for consistency this season and failed to win the last two games. The visitors will seek to extend their four-game winning streak, but still need to prove themselves on the road. Kaminsky, the big man for Partizan, scored 24 points in a narrow loss to Efes last week. In the Greens’ difficult task of surpassing Mathias Lessort, an all-action former Partizan star who has averaged 12 points and 6.5 rebounds during the current winning streak, Kaminsky will look to maintain his breakout performance. A high-scoring contest is anticipated between the teams with the second and fifth highest scoring averages in the league. In-form forwards Nunnally (13.3 ppg, 3.9 rpg) and opposing Mitoglou (17.3 ppg, 6.1 rpg) are likely to play significant roles.
