Fenerbahce – Valencia

Fenerbahce (4-6) is on a three-game losing streak in which it was without scoring leader and former Valencia guard Nando De Colo. Without him, Lorenzo Brown (12.4 ppg.), Jan Vesely (10.7 ppg.) and Jarell Eddie (7.8 ppg.) have been leading the team. Valencia (6-3) comes off back-to-back home wins and looks for its third road victory this season. Klemen Prepelic (12.3 ppg.) has been its top scorer followed by Bojan Dubljevic (11.6 ppg.) and Nikola Kalinic (9.4 ppg.). Expect a thrilling showdown at Ulker Sports and Event Hall.

Fenerbahce has allowed 92.3 points on average in its last three losses, so a defensive improvement is required to be more competitive. In Fenerbahce’s case, more efficient offense would lead to better defensive numbers. Fenerbahce ranks last in offensive rebounds (7.4 orpg.) and fourth in turnovers (14.9 per game). Having more second-chance options and taking better care of the ball are keys for Fenerbahce to avoid easy points in transitions, so intangibles like focus and intensity are required.

De Colo will be sidelined until early December with a calf muscle injury.

Former Fenerbahce players Kalinic and Williams give Valencia a lot of versatility at forward and the visitors have to make the most out of it. Prepelic has been on fire lately, breaking his EuroLeague career-bests several times, and Dubljevic set personal-best marks in assists last week. Valencia must keep sharing the ball well – its 1.66 assist-to-turnover ratio is the second-best in the competition. Stopping Vesely and Ahmet Duverioglu is also important for the Spanish powerhouse.

Joan Sastre is sidelined with a partial tear to the internal lateral ligament of his right knee.

Panathinaikos – Bayern

Panathinaikos (2-6) is currently on a four-game losing streak and hopes to put an end to it at OAKA. Nemanja Nedovic (14.0 ppg.), Ioannis Papapetrou (13.0 ppg.) and Shelvin Mack (11.7 ppg.) have been its top scorers so far this season. Bayern (7-3) is off to its best start in the EuroLeague despite coming off a home loss against CSKA Moscow. Vladimir Lucic (14.3 ppg., 4.9 rpg.), Wade Baldwin IV (13.9 ppg., 4.1 apg.) and Jalen Reynolds (12.7 ppg., 6.7 rpg.) have been its pillars until now.

Panathinaikos has a size advantage in the paint with Georgios Papagiannis and Dinos Mitoglou down low and must make the most of it. The Greens can rely on Papapetrou and Howard Sant-Roos not only to stop Lucic, but to generate advantages on offense with their one-on-one skills. Panathinaikos has a lot of firepower with players like Nedovic, Mack and Marcus Foster, but ranks 11th assists at just 16.5 per night. If the Greens can control the game tempo, the offense will come, as the team is full of great shooters.

Bayern has excelled on three-point defense, allowing scorers to make just 31.0% of their shots from downtown. If the German powerhouse can keep Panathinaikos close to that number, it will be on the right path. Bayern ranks 13th in fouls drawn (19.7) but fifth in free throws attempted (18.9), which says a lot about the team’s basketball IQ and overall aggressiveness. As always, getting Baldwin and Lucic involved on offense is critical for Coach Andrea Trinchieri’s team.

Villeurbanne – Barcelona

LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne (1-6) will look to try to snap a three-game losing streak when it hosts top-ranked FC Barcelona (8-1) on Friday. Two of ASVEL’s last three losses have come by just a single point. Barcelona has won seven straight, the last three of which have been by double figures. Barcelona is 3-1 on the road this season.

Barcelona leads the league in two-point shooting at 59.6% and though not all of those are near the rim, the size ASVEL and shot-clocking ability the home team boasts between Fall, Ismael Bako and Kevarrius Hayes could cut down on Barcelona’s ability to get layups in half-court plays. Taking away those shots could change the game and give ASVEL an advantage.

Though Barcelona’s offense has been elite, the team makes its biggest marks on defense, holding teams to just 69.4 points per game. ASVEL (70.6 ppg.) is last in the league in scoring, so another strong defensive effort could be all the visitors need in this one if Mirotic, Davies and Kyle Kuric deliver the goods on offense.

CSKA – Real Madrid

This showdown is between the last two Turkish Airlines EuroLeague champions. Both teams are on five-game winning streaks, which adds even more anticipation to this exciting showdown. Mike James (18.6 ppg.) has been CSKA’s top scorer until now, followed by Will Clyburn (16.4 ppg.) and Darrun Hilliard (11.1 ppg.). Real is currently led by Walter Tavares (10.3 ppg., 6.0 rpg.), Trey Thompkins (10.9 ppg.) and Sergio Llull (10.1 ppg.). Expect a top-class game between the two winningest teams in competition history.

CSKA has scored 84 points or more in each win in its current streak. That has allowed the Russian powerhouse to lead the EuroLeague standings at 83.0 points per game. It all starts with strong defense, a high rhythm, and players like Joel Bolomboy, Nikita Kurbanov and Daniel Hackett bringing intensity at both ends. CSKA is expected to keep running its offense through James, Clyburn and Milutinov, but has a lot of talented players to involve in the offense if it becomes a defensive slugfest.

Nico Laprovittola, Carlos Alocen and Sergio Llull are expected to share the point guard duties from now on. Real has a size advantage in the paint with tall, experienced players such as Tavares, Thompkins and Anthony Randolph. If Jeffery Taylor remains sidelined, Rudy Fernandez and Alberto Abalde will have the tough mission to guard Clyburn. Real must prevent CSKA from circulating the ball well, getting Milutinov involved and as always, must lock down the defensive glass to get its trademark transition offense going.

Fabien Causeur tested positive for COVID-19 and has not played since Round 2.

basketball prediction Tip: Under 161.5 at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Zalgiris – Zenit

After a great start, Zalgiris is on a four-game losing streak and hopes to bounce back right away. Marius Grigonis, Thomas Walkup, Joffrey Lauvergne and sixth-man Lukas Lekavicius have led the Lithuanian champs so far this season. Billy Baron, Kevin Pangos, Arturas Gudaitis and Will Thomas have been Zenit’s pillars. With two masterminds like Martin Schiller and Xavi Pascual on the respective benches, expect a first-class tactical battle at Zalgirio Arena.

Zalgiris has allowed 85 points or more in each of its games on its current losing streak. Improving its defense is mandatory to be more competitive. Collapsing the paint to contain Gudaitis or Thomas and cutting down on turnovers, which would allow Zenit to get points in transition, are keys. Zalgiris must speed up the game tempo with Walkup and Lekavicius, making the most of its mobile big men, Lauvergne and Augustine Rubit, in transition.

Zalgiris swingman Patricio Garino will be out of action until December after a knee operation.

Zenit is a very tactical, five-on-five offense team with excellent ball circulation, always looking for good shots without rushing them. They have a lot of versatility at forward with Thomas and Alex Poythress and reliable shooters in Baron and Rivers. KC Rivers and Gudaitis have played for Zalgiris in the past and their extra motivation will be a plus for Coach Pascual’s team. If Pangos and Dmitry Khvostov can control the game tempo and slow it down, Zenit is expected to have more chances to win.

basketball prediction Tip: Winning margin 3-way: Any other result (1-5p difference) at 2.60 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Crvena Zvezda – Efes

Crvena Zvezda returns home after a bittersweet two-round week in which it registered a 79-87 win in Milan and a 76-65 loss in Barcelona. Jordan Loyd (19.2 ppg.) has been Zvezda’s top scorer until now, followed by Corey Walden (12.2 ppg.) and Johnny O’Bryant (10.8 ppg.). Efes comes off a convincing 77-105 road victory against Khimki Moscow Region. Shane Larkin (16.0 ppg.), Krunoslav Simon (14.6 ppg.) and Vasilije Micic (13.7 ppg.) are the team’s main pillars. Expect an exciting game at Aleksandar Nikolic Hall.

Zvezda needs to improve its two-point shooting percentage as it currently ranks last overall at 48.3%. Dejan Davidovac, Ognjen Kuzmic and Emanuel Terry, however, are shooting over 60% inside the arc, so getting them involved on offense would generate more space for Loyd and Walden to play one-on-one. Zvezda is averaging 6.6 steals and 10.4 offensive rebounds and that aggressiveness at both ends is required when you play a deep, talented team like Efes.

Larkin comes off his best game of the season, which is great news for Efes and bad for everyone else. Larkin was a dominant force in the EuroLeague last season and he makes everyone around him better. If Bryant Dunston remains sidelined, Tibor Pleiss and Sertac Sanli are set to share the center duties. Getting Micic and Simon involved is important, too, as is spreading the floor with either Chris Singleton and Adrien Moerman at power forward. If Efes can rebound and run, it is a very hard team to stop.

Bryant Dunson has missed Efes’s last four games. Rodrigue Beaubois has missed the last two games.

ALBA Berlin – Khimki

In a clash of two teams near the bottom of the standings that split their games last week, ALBA Berlin hosts Khimki Moscow Region on Thursday. ALBA boasts a balanced attack so even without injured sharpshooter Marcus Eriksson, it has seven more players averaging at least 7 points. Khimki features six players averaging double figures in scoring led by Alexey Shved (18.0 ppg., 8.6 apg.) and Devin Booker (16.2 ppg., 8.4 rpg.).

ALBA is undefeated this season when it has scored at least 75 points, and it has now held its opponents to that number in three games in a row. What’s more, Khimki has allowed more points (85.6 ppg.) than any teams in the league. With Peyton Siva back at point guard, ALBA is close to full strength, though it is missing an important perimeter threat in the injured Marcus Eriksson. If Niels Giffey and co. can pick up the slack from behind the three-point line and the ALBA offense gets going, it can challenge for its second win.

ALBA will be without shooting guard Marcus Eriksson and forward Lorenz Brenneke for the next few weeks due to ankle injuries.

Despite the presence of a strong and deep frontline with Devin Booker, Jonas Jerebko, Jordan Mickey and Greg Monroe, Khimki has been outrebounded this season and is only converting 51.3% of its two-point shots, which is in the bottom fourth of the league. The talent is there for Khimki to dominate inside and controlling the paint in Berlin could put it in position for a second consecutive road win.

Stefan Jovic has not played yet this season due to an ankle injury. Devin Booker has not played since Round 5.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-5.5) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Olympiacos – Baskonia

Olympiacos Piraeus hosts TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz on Thursday. While Baskonia captured two victories during the two rounds played last week, Olympiacos was forced to the sidelines due to quarantine restrictions and missed its last two scheduled games. How quickly it can regain its form will be critical to this game.

Olympiacos will be both well-rested and potentially rusty after more than a week at home. How quickly it can find its footing in the game will be key. Without a single player averaging double figures in points, Olympiacos relies heavily on teamwork and depth. Its high-energy players such as Shaquielle McKissic, Kostas Papanikolaou and Charles Jenkins could be more important than ever versus Baskonia.

Baskonia is third in the league in rebounding (35.3 rpg.) and has outrebounded its opponents in all four of its wins this season. Between the height of Youssoupha Fall, the activity of Achille Polonara, the power of Tonye Jekiri and the assistance from the backcourt of Henry and Tadas Sedekerskis, Baskonia has the tools to deal with Olympiacos’s tough big guys. Controlling the glass and getting out in transition could set the stage for Baskonia first road win of the season.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (-1.0) at 1.90 with bet365
(Price correct at 26/11/2020, 08:25 CET, subject to change)

Maccabi – Milano

Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv seeks to put an end to its two-game slide against an AX Armani Exchange Milan side trying for its first winning streak since Rounds 1 and 2. After dropping just one home game last season, the Israeli champs are 2-2 in Tel Aviv this season and trying to recapture that lost magic. Milan is 1-2 on the road this season.

Three-point shooting is so important to the Maccabi attack to stretch the floor for Ante Zizic inside and to allow the guards to penetrate. With Dragan Bender, Angelo Caloiaro and Oz Blayzer all able to hit from the outside as power forwards, not to mention the firepower in shooters Wilbekin, Tyler Dorsey and Elijah Bryant, getting threes to fall is a must. So far Maccabi’s 35.6% shooting from deep is in the bottom quarter of the standings, but the team is 41.0% in wins. Getting a number close to that would make a big difference for Coach Sfairopoulos’s men.

Sandy Cohen has been suspended by the club for this week’s game.

The second-most accurate shooting from downtown (40.3%) and the second-fewest turnovers (11.3 per game) in the league are keys to winning on any court. What Milan needs to add to that in Tel Aviv is a strong showing on the boards. Milan is ranked 15th of 18 teams in rebounding (30.4 rpg.), while Maccabi (35.8 rpg.) leads the league and is fourth in offensive rebounding (10.6 orpg.). Kyle Hines, Zach LeDay and Kaleb Tarczewski must make their presence felt on the glass to help Milan score another key road win.

ALBA Berlin – Efes

Two teams from the lower half of the standings will be playing to go a little higher in on Friday when ALBA Berlin (2-5) welcomes Zenit St Petersburg (3-2) for Round 10. ALBA snapped a two-game losing streak with a last-second win over ASVEL on Wednesday, 76-75. After missing four games due to COVID, Zenit has lost two of its last three, including the Russian derby against visiting Khimki, 83-88, on Tuesday.

This game will have two of the four lowest-scoring offenses in the league going against each other, but ALBA also has the poorest defense, allowing some 15 points more than Zenit on average. The hosts will have to lock down on defense if they want to win. Also, ALBA is last in the league in rebounds average (28.1 rpg.), which is a figure that could increase if that defensive aggressiveness starts working a bit better. Peyton Siva saved the day against ASVEL, but that does not happen every game.

Zenit is trying to find the competition rhythm again after missing a bunch of games, and the trip to Berlin can be a good chance to grow a bit more in that sense. ALBA has the worst defense of the league and is also the weakest team under the glass. Both are situations that the guests should try to exploit. The duo of guards formed by Billy Baron and Kevin Pangos will have to step up once again and try to lead Zenit against a team that should fit their style, on paper.

basketball prediction Tip: 2/2 at 1.83 with bet365
(Price correct at 20/11/2020, 08:50 CET, subject to change)

Milano – Zalgiris

Two teams look to salvage a victory from this double-round week meet on Friday when AX Armani Exchange Milan (3-3) welcomes Zalgiris Kaunas (5-4) for Round 10. Milan has lost its last two games, including Round 9’s at home against Zvezda, 79-87, on Wednesday. After a strong start, Zalgiris has lost its last three games, including a 78-87 home defeat to CSKA earlier this week.

Milan will want to bounce back soon from a painful home loss, and playing against the third-weakest team in the league under the glass could be a good opportunity. Zalgiris is the best team in the league from beyond the arc, 40.9%, and also from the free-throw line, 89.0%, so the hosts will have to try to limit Zalgiris’ options for good looks on offense, as Kaunas could revert quickly to its winning ways from the start of the season if allowed.

After a pristine start to the season, Zalgiris found a big bump in the road and will try to leave it behind in Italy. The guests have better numbers from all shooting ranges, but rebounds could be a problem. Zalgiris will have to try to run and move the ball on offense to put that shooting to work, but at the same time, to watch Milan scoring guards Sergio Rodriguez and Shavon Shields on defense.

Zalgiris swingman Patricio Garino will be out of action until December after a knee operation.

Barcelona – Crvena Zvezda

Two teams coming from different places in the standings face off on Friday when FC Barcelona (7-1) welcomes Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade (4-5) for Round 10. Barcelona leads the standings and saw its Roun 9 game earlier this week against Olympiacos postponed due to COVID. As such, the league leaders will look to regain their rhythm fast. Zvezda comes from a huge win at Milan, 79-87, that snapped a three-game losing streak. The guests will look to stay on that path and keep climbing spots on the ladder.

Barcelona not only sits atop the standings, but is also the EuroLeague’s highest-scoring team (83.1 ppg.) and the best in assists (20.9 apg.). But if you thought Barca was only about offense, think again, because it also boasts the best defense in the league, too, allowing just 70.0 points per game. The Catalan team is doing most things right, but it will have to pay attention to a Zvezda team coming loaded with confidence after a big road win in Milan.

Zvezda has a huge test in front of them to confirm that they are a team on the rise. On paper, Barcelona looks like a tall order. Confidence can be a great ally, but the guests will have to try to find more fluidity on offense to improve the assists numbers but also close in on defense to stop the huge, league-leading 60.0% accuracy rate for Barcelona in two-point shots.

basketball prediction Tip: 2 (+12.5) at 1.95 with bet365
(Price correct at 20/11/2020, 08:50 CET, subject to change)

Real – Fenerbahce

Two of the EuroLeague’s biggest modern rivals, who have met in four Final Fours since 2015, clash on Friday when Real Madrid (5-4) welcomes Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul (4-5) to the Spanish capital. The hosts are on a four-game winning streak after having started the season 4-5. Fenerbahce’s season has been back-and-forth, with two wins, three losses, two wins and two losses in that order.

Real has shown during its streak that it can win high-scoring and low-scoring games with contributions across the board. Tavares, point guard Facundo Campazzo and forward Trey Thompkins have been the engines, but Gabriel Deck had his best game this season on Wednesday while Anthony Randolph, Jaycee Carroll and Rudy Fernandez have all stepped up recently, too. Real’s depth is its greatest strength, and at home for the entire double-round week, that could count even more. The ability of Campazzo to set the tempo and his teammates to keep up will be key in this one.

Fabien Causeur tested positive for COVID-19 and has not played since Round 2.

With legend Nando De Colo still injured, Fenerbahce has struggled to score, managing only 123 points total in back-to-back road losses to two other Spanish teams, FC Barcelona and TD Systems Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz. Expect the visitors to slow down this game and hope to use their defensive toughness to try to survive. Lorenzo Brown will be tested to make sure his teammates get good shots against a Real defense that can be more aggressive with Tavares patrolling the paint. Frustrating the hosts in their desire to run could pay dividends for Fenerbahce as the game goes on.

De Colo will be sidelined until early December with a calf muscle injury.

basketball prediction Tip: 1 (-8.5) at 1.86 with bet365
(Price correct at 20/11/2020, 08:50 CET, subject to change)

Valencia – Maccabi

Two teams coming from differing results and at different ends of the standings clash on Friday when Valencia Basket hosts Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv. Valencia took care of Panathinaikos OPAP Athens on Tuesday to improve to 3-1 at home with its lone loss coming against league-leading FC Barcelona. Maccabi is now 1-4 on the road after getting blown out by Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Valencia sits near the bottom of the rebounding charts with 31.6 per game, while Maccabi is second with 36.2. The Israeli champs are also tough on the offensive glass with 10.7 per game. Valencia has the size, length and depth to contend with Maccabi and must make every effort to lock down the boards, otherwise strong defensive plays could turn into second-chance points for the Israeli champs.

Joan Sastre is sidelined with a partial tear to the internal lateral ligament of his right knee.

Three-point shooting has proven to be a critical part of the Maccabi attack. It’s simply a better team when the shots are falling. How much better? In its three wins, Maccabi has averaged 10.7 three-pointers made at a 41.0% success rate in its three wins, while in its five losses, Maccabi has made just 8.2 threes at 31.8%. If Scottie Wilbekin, Elijah Bryant and Tyler Dorsey get their threes to fall early, it will be a massive boost for Maccabi.

basketball prediction Tip: Over 160.5 at 1.90 with bet365
