Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.
Panathinaikos – Maccabi
Maccabi (10-8) will aim to improve on its league-worst 2-7 away record as it goes to Panathinaikos after preserving a league-best 8-1 home record with a strong win over Partizan on Wednesday (6-12). The Greens are desperate for a win after losing six straight, but they showed significant signs of improvement in their overtime loss to Fenerbahce on Tuesday. They’ll look to keep pushing forward, inspired by Ponitka’s all-around abilities, who grabbed 10 offensive rebounds earlier this week.
Tip: 1 at 1.80
Asvel Villeurbanne – Valencia
ASVEL (6-12) will have to dig deep and find even more energy after putting in a Herculean effort against Barcelona on Wednesday. On the same evening, Valencia (8-10) – which is also without many players due to injury – defeated Efes at home with a team effort that saw six different players score in double figures. The battle for inside domination between Youssoupha Fall and Bojan Dubljevic, two very different big men, might be decisive.
Tip: 2 at 2.25
Partizan – Baskonia
After losing two straight, Baskonia (11-7) will seek to rebound against playoff-chasing Partizan (8-10), which has won three in a row in front of its raucous home supporters. The Round 2 matchup between the teams was a high-scoring thriller won by Baskonia in overtime, 103-96, with Markus Howard (33 points) and Kevin Punter (26 points) leading the way for their respective teams. Expect those sharpshooters to have a huge impact on the rematch on Friday.
Tip: 2 at 2.65
Barcelona – Anadolu Efes
Efes (9-9) will look to improve its playoff chances and snap a three-game road losing streak by defeating co-leader Barcelona (12-6) in a rematch of the 2021 EuroLeague Championship Game. The last three EuroLeague MVPs will be on display, with Barcelona’s Nikola Mirotic and Jan Vesely facing Efes backcourt leader Vasilije Micic, as well as 2019 Final Four MVP Will Clyburn and single-game scoring record holder Shane Larkin, in a truly star-studded encounter that promises to provide playoff-style intensity.
Tip: Over 158.5 at 1.90
EA7 Milano – Zalgiris
Zalgiris (10-8) will look to keep its hot streak going against a Milan (6-12) squad that has dropped to the bottom of the rankings after losing its first two games of 2023, scoring only 63 and 66 points. Zalgiris has climbed into the playoffs by winning four of its past five games, and it has a rising star in shooting guard Ignas Brazdeikis, who has 17 points in each of the last two games, which has helped compensate for the loss of injured Keenan Evans.
Tip: Milano Over 78.5 at 1.86
