Zalgiris – Panathinaikos
Panathinaikos holds a 18-8 advantage against Zalgiris in this century.
Zalgiris Kaunas (0-9) will look for its first win of the EuroLeague season when it hosts Panathinaikos OPAP Athens (2-7) on Tuesday. The Lithuanian champs have played two-thirds of their games on the road so far and their margin of defeat is just 5.3 points at home, so Coach Jure Zdovc and co. should have confidence as they prepare for the Greens. Panathinaikos has dropped three in a row and is winless in its last 11 road games dating back to last season. Zalgiris swept the regular-season series from Panathinaikos last season and has won four of the teams’ last five meetings in Kaunas.
Tip: Winning Margin 7-way 1-5 points difference at 2.55 with bet365
Villeurbanne – Real Madrid
- Real leads 5-1 in the series against ASVEL this century.
LdDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne looks to bounce back after having its three-game winning streak snapped when it hosts Real Madrid on Tuesday. ASVEL (6-3), which takes a 4-1 record at home into the clash, has relied on the strengths of its one-two backcourt punch of league-leading scorer Elie Okobo (19.2 ppg.) and Chris Jones (15.7 ppg.). Real (7-2), which is 2-2 on the road, is built around its dominant frontline of Walter Tavares (12.9 ppg., 7.3 rpg.), Vincent Poirier and Guerschon Yabusele. The game will be a homecoming of sorts for the four Frenchman on the Real roster, including Yabusele and Thomas Heurtel, who both played for ASVEL as recently as last season.
Tip: Winning Margin 7-way 1-5 points difference at 2.80 with bet365
Baskonia – Crvena Zvezda
Crvena Zvezda and Baskonia are tied at 6-6 in their Euroleague meetings this century.
Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (3-6) takes on Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (4-5) in an exciting showdown. Baskonia is hoping to snap its current four-game losing streak. Rokas Giedraitis (12.3 ppg.) has been its top scorer this season, followed by Simone Fontecchio (11.9 ppg.) and Wade Baldwin IV (10.5 ppg.). Zvezda has won its last two games at home and hopes to keep its momentum going, led by Nikola Kalinic (12.6 ppg.), Nate Wolters (12.0 ppg.) and Nikola Ivanovic (9.4 ppg.). It is a special game for Baskonia center Landry Nnoko, who played for Zvezda last season. Baskonia and Zvezda are 6-6 against each other in EuroLeague action and 3-3 at Buesa Arena.
Tip: Under 144.5 at 1.90 with bet365
Bayern – Fenerbahce
- Fenerbahce is 7-2 in EuroLeague meetings against Bayern Munich.
FC Bayern Munich will look to stem a two-game slide when it hosts Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul, which is coming off its worst loss of the season. Bayern (3-6) had won three in a row before it dropped a game at home against Real Madrid and lost at AS Monaco. Fenerbahce scored a club record-low 43 points last week in losing at home against AX Armani Exchange Milan in what was its fourth loss in the last five games. Fenerbahce heads to Munich with three figures who have played big roles in Bayern’s past success; Coach Sasa Djordjevic spent two seasons on the Bayern sidelined between 2016 and 2018. Big man Devin Booker was there for both of those seasons and the one that followed. And Danilo Barthel played for Bayern from 2016 through 2020.
Tip: 1 (-1.5) at 1.90 with bet365
