Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Fenerbahce – ASVEL Villeurbanne

  • Fenerbahce is 7-2 in games this century against ASVEL.

Fenerbahce is one of the league’s finest ball-moving teams. The Canaries top the league in assists (18.8 per game) and turnovers (13.8 per game). Fenerbahce has found exceptional shooting opportunities as a result of their ball movement, particularly from the perimeter. This season, the club has averaged 9.3 three-pointers on 41.6 percent shooting in victories, compared to 6.4 threes on 28.6 percent shooting in defeats. Pierria Henry and Marko Guduric will be in charge of guiding the assault and ensuring that the Fenerbahce shooters get solid looks to help the team’s chances.

With Okobo and Jones playing lights-out basketball, Villeurbanne enjoyed a tremendous start to the season. However, majority of their scoring was done on their own, which explains why they are tied for bottom in the league in assists (13.6 apg.). ASVEL must move the ball better and create an inside scoring threat to put more pressure on a Fenerbahce team that is without Jan Vesely in the paint. Youssoupha Fall, who scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting last week in Barcelona, may be a strong possibility.

Barcelona – Bayern

  • Barcelona is 6-3 all-time against Bayern.

With an average of 83.0 points per game in 2021-22, Barcelona leads the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. It has been even better at Palau Blaugrana, where it has averaged 88.4 points in front of its supporters while shooting 57.8 percent inside the arc, 43.8 percent from outside, and 84.8 percent from the foul line. The hosts’ ability to continue distributing the ball as they have done so far should be crucial; Barcelona averages 18.3 assists a night and 19.6 at home. Stopping Vladimir Lucic might be crucial for Barcelona, who rely on Nigel Hayes-Davis, Dante Exum, and Rolands Smits.

Bayern Munich is tied for bottom in assists per game with 13.6, but has recently improved with 19 versus Bitci Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. Over the previous three games, Corey Walden has hit 13 of 23 three-point attempts (56.5 percent), while the rest of the club is shooting 14 of 48 from deep (29.2 percent ). Finding more players who can shoot from beyond the arc with more accuracy should be a top focus for the German superpower. One of the keys to this game is stopping Nikola Mirotic, and Bayern needs Augustine Rubit and former Barcelona striker DeShaun Thomas to be physical against him.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+9.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Baskonia – Zenit

  • Zenit is 3-2 in games against Baskonia.

Baskonia has struggled with its shooting this season, and it won’t get any easier against Zenit’s tenacious defence. Baskonia is second-to-last in two-point (50.5%) and three-point (33.3%) accuracy, as well as scoring (72.0 ppg.). Zenit has allowed the second-fewest points (72.3 ppg.) and the fourth-most turnovers (11.2 per game), while holding opponents to poor shooting percentages (52.2 percent 2FG, 34.0 percent 3FG). To boost their prospects against Zenit, Baskonia’s go-to scorers, Wade Baldwin IV, Rokas Giedraitis, Simone Fontecchio, and Steven Enoch, must remain strong against the Zenit defence, not settle for weak shots, and shoot with great efficiency.

Last week, Zenit’s Alex Poythress had his greatest game of the season, which was greatly needed given the team’s absence of centre Arturas Gudaitis. With Gudaitis out, Poythress, Jordan Mickey, and Andrey Zubkov must shoulder the extra weight, and they must be solid on the glass this time against Baskonia. Zenit has outrebounded opponents by 4.3 boards per game this season, but that will be more difficult versus Baskonia due to a shorter rotation up front. If Poythress, Mickey, and Zubkov can preserve the rebounding advantage over the visitors, Zenit’s prospects on the road will improve.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-3.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Panathinaikos – Monaco

  • This will be the first time Panathinaikos hosts Monaco. Monaco won 75-63 in France.

This season, Panathinaikos has leaned significantly on their guards, particularly Macon Jr. (14.4 ppg.) and Nedovic (11.2 ppg.). Nedovic came off the bench for much of the season to help the offence, but he started the Greens’ last game. Stefan Jovic made his club debut in the game, giving the squad a third great performer in the backcourt. So if these players can contribute offensively while also limiting Monaco’s elite guards, Panathinaikos will be in good shape.

Monaco possesses players that can flourish in transition and fastbreaks, led by Mike James and Dwayne Bacon. In addition, the squad ranks third in the league in thefts (7.2 spg.). The better Monaco does on defence, the simpler it will be to push the pace and create openings for easy baskets, which is crucial in a tough road environment like OAKA.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 at 1.90 with bet365

Zalgiris – Maccabi

  • Maccabi holds a 19-9 record vs Zalgiris since 2000 and has three straight wins.

This season’s issues for Zalgiris began with offensive difficulties. The club ranks worst in the league in terms of scoring (69.3 points per game) and two-point shooting (48.2 percent ). Not surprisingly, in triumphs, both of those numbers rise to 78.0 points and 57.5 percent. This season, Maccabi has been vulnerable to three-point shooting but has played solid defence in the paint. Zalgiris might use big performances from Josh Nebo and Marek Blazevic to put Maccabi on the back foot on Tuesday.

Maccabi has won its previous two games with 36 assists and nine turnovers. Of course, both of those wins came at home, but if Maccabi’s ballhandlers – Scottie Wilbekin, Keenan Evans, and John DiBartolomeo – can duplicate those figures, the Israeli champions will be difficult to beat.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-2.5) at 1.90 with bet365

Crvena Zvezda – AX Milano

  • Zvezda holds a 6-2 edge in games this century, but Milan won the last two.

The match between Crvena Zvezda and AX Milan is expected to be a low-scoring battle between two of the league’s best defences. This season, Milan has conceded the fewest points in the league (70.7 per game), while Zvezda is nearly as excellent (73.4 allowed). Threes are one option for Zvezda to break through the Milan defence. In Milan’s six losses this season, opponents have shot 43.1 percent from downtown, but Coach Messina’s men have kept them to 29.0 percent in wins. If players like Austin Hollins, Nikola Ivanovic, and Nate Wolters get going from deep, Zvezda’s prospects improve.

This season, Milan’s defence has been so dominant that the squad is 9-2 when scoring at least 75 points and 3-0 when scoring at least 80 points. The squad also boasts the least turnovers in the league (11.0 per game), which leads to more shot attempts, but the combination of a sluggish tempo and bad shooting can spell disaster. Milan’s two-point percentage of 51.7 percent is in the lowest third of the league. If it can find a reference within, possibly Nicolo Melli or Kyle Hines, it will aid Milan’s overall attack in Belgrade.

Do not get confused with basketball predictions

Bet365 and other bookmakers list the visitors in the NBA first. In LiveTipster.com we always list the home team first on our basketball predictions.

You can also check our football predictions today.

What basketball predictions do we provide?

We are confident to say that this is one of the most successful basketball prediction sites regarding the Euroleague (mainly), the EuroCup, the Basketball Champions League (by FIBA) and all major competitions in Europe (Spain ACB, Greece Basket League, Italy Serie A). But when the NBA is on, then we focus on NBA predictions.

We use a staking system that you are free to follow but it is for our own use. We normally increase the stake when we lose and decrease it when we lose.

What are the markets of our basketball predictions?

The advantage of offering basketball predictions on big games and popular leagues or tournaments is massive. There are more markets available and the information is greater and easier to reach.

However, just like in football predictions, it is better to work out which markets suit your style of play, which are you better at and try to concentrate on them.

This is what we do. We have a list of maximum 5-6 favourite markets that we usually choose from. Only in specific cases we would bet on markets out of our list and this helps in the consistency of our gaming style. It also keeps the odds within a narrow range which is great for the staking strategy we use.

So, without any further ado, our basketball predictions come from the following markets in a typical NBA or Euroleague game:

  • Money Line (home win or away win)
  • Spread (handicap points difference)
  • Total Points (Over or Under)
  • Alternative Spread (not the main handicap difference provided by the bookmaker).
  • Alternative Total Points (not the main Over or Under limit provided by the bookmaker).
  • Match Result and Total (ie. Home team to win & Over 156.5 points)
  • Winning Margin 3-way (will it be a close game, typically 1-5 points difference either way? Or will it be 6 or more and for which team?)
  • Double Result (Half Time / Full Time)

Thers is one more market that we always check and prefer for live betting and it is the following:

  • Race to 10 points
  • or Race to 20 points

These are the main markets you will see in this page. Every day we update our tips. Good luck on your picks, too. Anyway… (read below)

Disclaimer: This is not investment or gambling advice. Always conduct your own independent research. Also, the numbers of the column bet are not equivalent to any currency but show an analogy depending on the previous bets, won or lost. They could be rice seeds, lentils or anything you might imagine.

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague continues. We have almost completed the first third of the regular season and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Cvena Zvezda – Virtus Bologna

Friday night’s early tipoff at Aleksandar Nikolic Hall features a matchup between Crvena Zvezda (4-6) and Virtus Bologna (4-6), both of which are in same wins but different states of form.

Zvezda has won its previous three EuroLeague games after hiring Dusko Ivanovic as their head coach, defeating ASVEL Villeurbanne, ALBA Berlin, and Maccabi. Both point guard Vildoza and fellow guard Nedovic, who previously played for Coach Ivanovic at Baskonia, have begun to have a bigger influence. Curiously, only two players reached double digits in points in the victory over Maccabi: Nedovic had 12 and Martin had 11. Zvezda will probably have to work hard for every point it scores when facing a strong defence like Virtus, which has the fourth-best ranking in the EuroLeague on this end of the floor.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.15

Fenerbahce – Real Madrid

Both teams are in good shape going into their matchup at Ulker Sports and Event Hall: Fenerbahce (9-1) has just lost one game all season while Real Madrid (7-3) has won five consecutive.

Fenerbahce made a number of roster adjustments during the offseason, including the hiring of Dimitris Itoudis as the new head coach, and ever since, the team has been on fire. In addition to having the greatest record in the EuroLeague this season, Fenerbahce also has the second-highest ratings on attack and defence. Injury has kept Pierre out of the previous two games for Fenerbahce, but Hayes-Davis has filled in admirably. In two contests, Hayes-Davis actually led the club in scoring with 21 points against Monaco and 22 points at EA7 Milan. Due to an injury, Wilbekin will miss the Real Madrid game, but Los Blancos have already seen how much trouble they can cause when Hayes-Davis, Calathes, Motley, and Guduric are on the field.

Zalgiris – Panathinaikos

At Zalgirio Arena, Zalgiris (6-4) will play host to Panathinaikos (4-6), who has a 4-6 record and is coming off back-to-back victories in the EuroLeague double-round week.

Zalgiris is now 4-0 this season overall at Zalgirio Arena and has won four of its previous five games. Zalgiris are a very dangerous possibility in this year’s EuroLeague thanks to the never-say-die spirit that first-year head coach Maksvytis has fostered in his players. Evans, Smits, and club captain Ulanovas, who have all contributed significantly over the past few games, will be motivated to keep Zalgiris’s home winning streak intact when Panathinaikos visits.

Bayern Munich – Maccabi

When it hosts Maccabi, Bayern Munich will try to get back on track. Before losing by one point in Monaco last week, Bayern (3-7) had won three of its previous four games. After losing in a thrilling match to Crvena Zvezda on Thursday in Belgrade, Maccabi (5-5) is still looking for its first road victory of the year. Additionally, Maccabi’s most recent victory in Munich was in March 2019.

Two former Bayern stars will travel back to Munich for the game. In 2021, Baldwin helped Bayern to within one shot of the Final Four, and Hilliard led Bayern in scoring last season with 13.7 points per game. Together, they and Lorenzo Brown form a lethal Maccabi backcourt. Baldwin (15.6 ppg, 4.5 apg) ranks second on the squad in both categories, while Brown (16.3 ppg) leads Maccabi in both. Brown is also tied for third in the league in assists (6.4 apg).

Euroleague Basketball Predictions

The action in the Euroleague continues. We have almost completed the first third of the regular season and we can predict with more confidence on european basketball matches today. So, let’s dive straight into our Euroleague picks for today’s games:

Our EuroLeague basketball tips appear under each mini game preview.

Alba Berlin – Barcelona

On Thursday night, Round 11 will feature a matchup between two teams at different ends of the spectrum as ALBA Berlin (3-7) hosts Barcelona (7-3). The 13th meeting between these two clubs in the EuroLeague this century will take place, with Barca winning 11 of the previous 12. Despite Jaleen Smith’s 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in a Round 10 loss to Olympiacos, ALBA has lost seven straight games since going 3-0 to open the season. With Jan Vesely scoring 18 points, Barcelona has won five of its previous six games, including its most recent victory over Baskonia, 96-84.

Few people would disagree that the reality is what it appears to be on paper. With the exception of turnovers and shooting percentages across the board, ALBA outperforms Barcelona in all significant statistical categories. Although they continue to lead the league in total rebounds (37.2) and assists (22.0), the hosts’ recent success has not been reflected in victories. The third-best league defence will force ALBA to put their offensive fireworks to the test. ALBA will also need to play tight on defence and work to reduce the 81.9 points it gives up per game. In order to try and end ALBA’s losing streak, players like Blatt, Olinde, and Sikma will have to stand up and help Smith in seizing the reins.

Anadolu Efes – Olympiacos

At Sinan Erdem Sports Hall, Anadolu Efes (5-5) takes on Olympiacos (7-3) in a highly anticipated matchup. For the first time since the EuroLeague semifinals of last year, the teams square off. In that match, Vasilije Micic’s buzzer-beating three-pointer helped Efes defeat Olympiacos 74-77. Efes ultimately won the EuroLeague championship. Kostas Sloukas’ game-winning shot helped Olympiacos defeat Efes 87-85 in overtime earlier in the 2021–22 campaign. Expect a fantastic game with all the big characters still on their respective teams.

Efes is now on a three-game winning streak and may be in its finest shape of the year. Micic (18.2 ppg, 6.4 apg, 21.7) and Clyburn (20.4 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 22.3 PIR) have been the team’s leaders thus far this season, respectively placing first and second in terms of minutes played per game. In recent games, Efes has displayed a more diversified approach: Pleiss scored 13 points against EA7 Milan in Round 9, and Beaubois scored 19 points and had a PIR of 30 against Virtus Bologna in Round 10. With only 14.7 assists per night, Efes is tied for 15th in the league, thus there is room for growth during the season.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-4.5) at 1.95

Asvel Villeurbanne – Monaco

The Astroaballe will host the rematch between ASVEL Villeurbanne (3-7) and Monaco, two very familiar teams (7-3). Last season, these groups exchanged wins on the road in the EuroLeague. After Monaco defeated ASVEL 75-100 shortly after, ASVEL narrowly defeated Monaco 84-85 on a long buzzer-beating triple by Howard. Both teams advanced to the French League finals, when ASVEL defeated Monaco with a score of 3-2 after a tense playoff series.

Currently on a five-game losing streak in the EuroLeague, ASVEL is having trouble. Its primary pillars up until this point have been De Colo (12.3 ppg., 53.1% 3FG, 3.7 apg., 14.0 PIR), Mathews (10.8 ppg.), and Fall (10.5 ppg., 65.1% 2FG, 7.6 rpg., 14.4 PIR). Since ASVEL has only shot two points at 45.4% of its last five games, attacking the rim for simple baskets should be a priority for ASVEL when facing a run-and-gun team.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 157.5 at 1.87

Baskonia – Milano

Baskonia (5-5) welcomes EA7 Milan (7-3) in what should be an intriguing tactical matchup. Despite the fact that their initial encounter took place in 2009, this is their 22nd rendezvous. With a record of 11-10 against Baskonia, Milan won both of their meetings last year: 64-78 at Buesa Arena and 89-78 at Mediolanum Forum. Be prepared for a fierce basketball match.

Baskonia recently suffered a road setback to Barcelona but has played well at home this year, going 4-1 with Olympiacos Piraeus being the lone defeat. The home team leader in scoring (99.2 ppg) and PIR (113.2) is Baskonia, who also shoots the ball well (62.7% 2FG, 44.2% 2FG) and averages about 10 more points per game than any other team. Few teams can win at Buesa Arena if Baskonia maintains its regular home game numbers and plays at full throttle.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 at 2.90

Partizan – Valencia

When Partizan (4-6) hosts Valencia, there will be a match between two teams with the same record (4-6). LeDay put up a performance of 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists, but Partizan’s trip to Spain last week ended in a defeat to Real Madrid. Although Valencia lost to Zalgiris at home, 76-80, despite Chris Jones’ 19 points and 7 assists, they also lost to Real previous week. Partizan and Valencia will be playing one other for the first time ever in the EuroLeague.

Partizan will use this as one of its main weapons against Valencia because it leads the league in three-point shooting accuracy at 41.1%. To increase their average of 14.7 assists, the hosts must watch the visitors’ aggressive defence (7.1 spg.) and work to improve ball circulation. Valencia ranks bottom in average blocks (1.3), thus there may be a chance for the hosts to earn their fifth victory in the paint.

basketball prediction Tip: Partizan Over 85.5 at 1.83
