Euroleague Basketball Predictions
The Euroleague is already heating up and this week we’ve welcome a double round. We already have a good sample to learn the teams, however injuries and changes in their rosters need a lot of research. We’ve done it though, so, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games. Here’s a rundown of what’s coming up.
Yes, these are the best Euro League basketball tips you can possible find and appear under each mini game preview.
ALBA Berlin – ASVEL
ALBA (1-6) and ASVEL (1-6) square off in a match between the lowest two teams in the league. Both teams can see that they are still only two wins away from the eighth-place team in the rankings. With 89.6 points allowed per game, the French squad has the worst defensive record in the competition. They will be hoping that Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, who has scored 19 and 18 points in his past two games since returning from injury, keeps up his excellent play. After letting opponents make 60.8% of their two-point attempts, the highest percentage in the league, ALBA will try to strengthen its interior defence. A vital member of the team, Louis Olinde has started each of the first seven games for the hosts and averages 10.1 points while shooting well (66.7% from two points and 43.5% from three).

Panathinaikos – Zalgiris
When Panathinaikos (3-4) hosts a struggling Zalgiris (3-4), which has dropped three straight games, it will look to show that last week’s decisive victory in Berlin could be the beginning of something remarkable. For Panathinaikos, Dinos Mitoglou has been indispensable, averaging 16 points and 6 rebounds in over 30 minutes on the court. Rolands Smits, a skilled paint protector who averages 5.3 rebounds and 13.3 points per game, will be his opponent this week. In his last six games, Smits has made at least one three-point shot. The hosts will try to capitalise on their current three-game winning streak in Athens against Zalgiris, who has won two of its last three games away from home.

Baskonia – Barcelona
As high-flying Barcelona (6-1) faces Baskonia (3-4) for a heated Spanish derby between two teams in terrific form, expect playoff-like intensity. Baskonia has won two straight games since coach Dusko Ivanovic returned, and the hosts have Tadas Sedekerskis (9 rpg.), the best rebounder in the league. But when Barca matches up with in-form rookies Willy Hernangomez and Jabari Parker—who combined for 38 points on 12-for-16 two-point shooting in last week’s hard-fought victory against Zvezda—the struggle for inside supremacy will be tough. Two long-range shooting experts, Markus Howard (2.0 3PTM) and Nicolas Laprovittola (2.6 3PTM), who was formerly a standout for Baskonia, square off in the backcourt.

Bayern – Partizan
Bayern (2-5) faces Partizan (3-4) in a meeting of coaching masters as Pablo Laso welcomes Zeljko Obradovic. Bayern is looking to snap a four-game losing streak and will be motivated by last week’s exciting victory over Fenerbahce. After returning from injury, teenager Tristan Vukcevic has been in excellent form for Partizan, leading the league in two-point shooting conversion (60.4%) and making six of his seven field goal attempts in his two games. With only 27.5% of its shots made from beyond the arc, Bayern has the lowest three-point shooting record in the league. The team will be hoping that shooters like Andreas Obst (6.1 ppg. on 26.3% 3FG) will regain his typical long-range accuracy.
