CSKA took over first position in our power rating from Real Madrid, which failed to cover against Baskonia yesterday. Olympiacos and PAO has moved to 3rd and 4h position. Seems that this quarter are main contenders for Euroleague title season, because Fenerbahce struggle all season to reach the top after summer changes.

My choice as I already said – Real Madrid @ 3.50.
Zalgiris has cooled off after hot weeks in December. Anadolu Efes is bottom team for many weeks in a row.
Betting Advices and Tips for Week 18
I have only one free preview for Thursday games. Others selection are in paid subscription, which is doing great in last few weeks after slump in November-December.
Olympiacos is hidden favorite here, but odds are too low to take them. If Oly would be underdog I would take them. There no important missing for greeks and Russian team missing only T.Robinson. It’s better to stay from side betting here.
As for the total stats points to low quality game here with a lot of defensive pressure from both teams. I recommend to take Under 150.5 here, but only as system pick, because with up-average percentage game might go to 155-157 pts. Olympiacos 78% road Under trend + expectation poor offensive quality – main reasons of bet.
Eric Green missed the game against Barca, but travelled to Kaunas and will be tested. Valencia just 3 wins below playoffs zone and they can deliver many problems to Lithuanian champs, who struggling with their ATS form recently. Zalgiris is 0-3 ATS in last games, but still gets -5 point handicap against mighty Valencia, which has deep and very quality roster. Don’t forget that Valencia is Spain champions and they have core from last system. Now when things start to click on the court for them, they are extremely dangerous. This can team shoot unbelievable good, defend well and keep the pace during the game.Zalgiris is 1-4 ATS as favorite at home – typical weak favorite, which is getting too much respect from bookies right now. Also seems that their form is not at best right now and in such situation Valencia handicap is a must bet for me.
Panathinaikos owns 2nd best home offense in Euroleague (1.18 pts/attack) and meets best away offense (1.18 pts/attack). Game pace should be about average (146 attacks), but there is good chance that we will see high percentages here, because both teams knows well how to score points and run the offense.
I advice to take over 161 if you plan to watch this game.
Milan – Unicaja
Unicaja – Real Madrid
