Zenit – Fenerbahce
- Fenerbahce holds a 3-1 edge over Zenit and swept their series last season.
Zenit St Petersburg will try to stem a two-game losing streak when it hosts Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul in Round 14’s first game. Zenit (8-5) has seen its offense go cold in recent weeks as it scored 64 in Round 12 against Panathinaikos OPAP Athens and just 58 last week against Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade. Jordan Mickey scored 16 points in the latter of those two games, but the team’s top scorer this season, Jordan Loyd (13.3 ppg.), was held to a season-low 5 points. Fenerbahce (4-9) had lost four in a row before holding off AS Monaco 96-86 at home last week. Jan Vesely led the way with a double-double for Coach Djordjevic’s team. Fenerbahce has won its last three games against Zenit.
Tip: 2 at 2.10 with bet365
Crvena Zvezda – Olympiacos
- Olympiacos holds a 7-2 lead in EuroLeague games against Crvena Zvezda.
Two clubs with a special bond between them will meet in the Serbian capital on Thursday when Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade hosts Olympiacos Piraeus. Zvezda (5-8) comes off a 58-69 victory at Zenit St Petersburg in which Nate Wolters scored 14. It was the second road win this season for Coach Dejan Radonjic’s men, who are 3-2 in the Serbian capital. Olympiacos (9-4) has won three in a row to climb into third place. The Reds bested UNICS Kazan 84-87 after overtime last week in Russia as Sasha Vezenkov won MVP of the Round honors with 22 points, 7 rebounds and 5 steals.
Tip: Under 148.5 at 1.86 with bet365
Bayern – Anadolu Efes
- Bayern swept Efes last season after four defeats each by at least 15 points.
Reigning Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champion Anadolu Efes Istanbul had won four in a row before losing in overtime last week to FC Barcelona. The champs will look to start a new winning streak when they visit FC Bayern Munich on Thursday. Bayern (6-7) has won three of its last four games, including a tough 73-65 decision against LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne last week in which Augustine Rubit posted 19 points and 12 rebounds. Bayern has won three straight games at home, where it is 4-2 this season. Efes (6-7) has won its last two road games after losing its first four this season. Last season Bayern won both regular-season games against Efes, but Efes had won all four of their previous meetings.
Tip: 2 (-4.5) at 1.90 with bet365
Maccabi – Unics Kazan
- Maccabi swept UNICS in the 2016-17 season, which was their only previous clashes.
Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv will try to get back to its winning ways when it hosts UNICS Kazan on Thursday night. Maccabi (7-6) has dropped three in a row, all on the road, and now returns to Tel Aviv where it is 5-1 this season. Scottie Wilbekin (14.8 ppg.) has led the Israeli champs in scoring, followed by James Nunnally (12.5 ppg.) and Ante Zizic (12.4 ppg.). UNICS (7-6) has won four straight before losing to Olympiacos Piraeus last week. Two of the wins in the stark came on the road – in Belgrade and Athens. Isaiah Canaan (14.4 ppg.) has paced the UNICS attack this season alongside Marjo Hezonja (13.5 ppg.) and Lorenzo Brown (12.2 ppg.). Maccabi won the only two previous clashes between these teams, which were during the 2016-17 campaign.
Tip: Unics Over 73.5 at 1.80 with bet365
Baskonia – Villeurbanne
- ASVEL holds a 5-4 edge against Baskonia in this century.
Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz hosts LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in a showdown between two teams looking to find momentum. Baskonia (4-9) has lost three straight games and seven of its last eight. Last week it fell 72-68 at Zalgiris Kaunas despite another double-double by Steven Enoch. ASVEL (7-6) has lost four of its last five games. Its most recent loss was at FC Bayern Munich last week. Elie Okobo posted 14 points and 5 assists in defeat. It will be an interesting trip for ASVEL center Youssoupha Fall, who played the previous two seasons for Baskonia and helped the team win the 2020 Spanish championship. These teams have met eight times in the EuroLeague over the years with each team winning twice. The home team has won six of them. ASVEL swept their regular-season games last season.
