Thursday and Friday are the days of the 10th and final round of the Euroleague regular season. There are 3 tickets left to Top 16 and one of these tickets is hunted by Darussafaka Istanbul and Maccabi Tel Aviv.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2015
Khimki (5-4) vs Fenerbahce (7-2): both teams are already qualified for Top 16. This is a match to avoid for bettors.
Zalgiris (5-4) vs Panathinaikos (5-4): mission accomplished for both, they will play on Top 16.
Darussafaka (5-4) vs Maccabi (3-6): as euroleague.net reports “Darussafaka will advance to the next phase with a victory or a loss by up to 10 points. Due to Darussafaka’s 73-84 win in Round 5, Maccabi has to match or overcome that difference if it wants to continue its streak of never missing the Top 16.” My betting tip is simple: Maccabi Tel Aviv @ 1.90 stake 3/10. Go Maccabi!
Brose (5-4) vs Sassari (0-9): the German club is aaredy in Top 16, Sassari already in Eurocup. Avoid.
Laboral (5-4) vs Cedevita (4-5): both already qualified. It’s useless to place bets in games like this one.
Real Madrid (4-5) vs Strasbourg (3-6): home team would qualify even if Strasbourg wins by up to 7 points. Don’t bet, take your money in your bank account.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2015
Kuban (7-2) vs Barcelona (6-3): these two clubs dominated Group A. Friday game is only a show for the fans.
Crvena Zvezda (5-4) vs Bayern (4-5): the situation is simple: . Bayern or Zvezda will qualify with a win in their game, regardless of the score. I love german basketball, but here I back the serbian team, so my betting tip is: Crvena Zvezda @ 1.65 stake 2/10.
Zielona Gora (2-7) vs Pinar (2-7): two good teams. Good luck for their Eurocup games in 2016.
Milano (3-6) vs Limoges (2-7): if you speak Italian, I suggest you to listen to this match on Radio Hinterland Binasco. I love their way to follow Olimpia Milano matches.
Olympiacos (8-1) vs Efes (5-4): Olympiacos is undefetaed at home this season and Efes is already qualified. Another home win is not improbable. My betting tips: Olympiacos @ 1.50 stake 2/10.
Unicaja (7-2) vs CSKA Moscow (8-1): I have already placed 3 bets in this Euroleague round. That’s enough.
