Euroleague Basketball Predictions

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.
Baskonia – Real Madrid
The round gets underway with a bang when Baskonia (10-5) faces Real Madrid (10-5) in a Spanish rivalry with a lot on the line. These two teams are currently tied for first position. All of the available tickets for the game sold out last week, and the enthusiastic home crowd will be hoping that Baskonia can keep launching long 3-pont bombs after averaging 10.9 per game, the highest in the league. Real leads its rivals in rebounding (37.4 rpg), but it will need a strong performance to win at the scorching Fernando Buesa Arena.
Tip: Over 163.5 at 1.90
Maccabi – Anadolu Efes
Only the winner between Maccabi (8-7) and Anadolu Efes (8-7) will be in the top-8 at the end of the night in Tel Aviv, where another tie will be broken. Second-chance points might be crucial in the game. Maccabi leads the league with 12.3 offensive rebounds per game, while Efes has only averaged 7.8 offensive rebounds per game, placing them dead last in that category. Maccabi has improved its confidence after winning three of its last four games and has won six of its seven home games this season.
Tip: Winning Margin 3-way Any Other Result (1-5 points difference) at 2.65
Partizan – Bayern
Partizan (6-9) will aim to maintain its upward trend after two wins in a row, while Bayern (5-10) will try to halt its streak of three straight away defeats. Andrea Trinchieri, the Bayern coach who oversaw Partizan from 2018 to 2020, will have a great night. One of his biggest worries will be another player facing off against his old team: Partizan big man Mathias Lessort, who played for Bayern in the 2019–20 season, is currently leading the league in rebounding with 7.5 per game.
Tip: 1 (-6.5) at 1.90
Milano – Valencia
Milan (5-10) will try to extend its comeback by defeating Valencia (7-8), a direct adversary in the bottom part of the rankings. Milan has won two straight games, including a spectacular fourth-quarter comeback to overcome Monaco last week. Billy Baron, a sharpshooter for Milan who has scored 18, 19, and 23 points in the last three games, will feel confident that his excellent form can continue because Valencia has the third-worst defensive record in the league, allowing 84.5 points per game.
Tip: 1 (-4.5) at 1.90
Monaco – Zalgiris
Monaco (10-5) will try to vent its resentment on dangerous Zalgiris (8-7), which may enter the playoff zone with a win, after losing a sizable lead at Milan last week to miss the opportunity to become the only leader. Keenan Evans, who averages 16.7 points per game and won MVP of the Round last week after scoring 32 points in a single quarter, will serve as an example for the visiting club. Donta Hall, who averages 4.7 rebounds per game, will try to establish inside dominance for Monaco, which will then rely on its superb group of backcourt stars to carry out the remaining tasks.
Tip: Monaco Over 85.5 at 2.10
