The EuroLeague action comes thick and fast, with some teams taking part in their second EuroLeague game of this midweek. Of course, we would welcome EuroLeague games every day, around the clock, although the players need downtime to rest, recover and see their loved ones.
If you are looking for Euroleague betting options, there are some close games and potential big scores to look out for.
Zenit St Petersburg vs. Valencia Basket
Zenit have already been in action this week, beating Milan in St Petersburg on Monday night. This means they have a quick turnaround when they welcome Valencia on Thursday night. However, the hosts are on a run of home victories, and with a string of home games to come, there is a chance to leapfrog Milan into third place, at least for a short time as Milan play later on Thursday.
Olympiacos Piraeus vs. CSKA Moscow
The side currently in second place head to Greece, and they will be determined to keep moving forward. CSKA have Barcelona in their sights, but they know they have a few teams nipping at their heels.
The host are languishing in 13th spot with an 11-14 record, and they cannot let too many home matches slip by if they wish to make a late push for the playoffs.
FC Bayern Munich vs. Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv
6th plays 14th in this clash in Germany, but Bayern are one of four teams with 15 wins so far this season. The team from Munich have been boosted by the capture of David Kraemer, who has signed a contact until the end of the season. Kraemer is set to make his EuroLeague debut, he has EuroCup expertise to call on.
AX Armani Exchange Milan vs. Khimki Moscow Region
Milan have an ideal chance to put Monday night’s defeat in St Petersburg behind them when they welcome Khimi to Italy. They have a strong chance to enjoy a good night because Khimki are propping up the league. The side from Moscow hold a 2-22 record, and all expectations fall on Milan chalking up a comfortable win.
Real Madrid vs. Zalgiris Kaunas
The Spanish giants might be in fifth place while Kaunas are in ninth spot, but there is little between these two teams heading into the Thursday night clash. Madrid hold a 15-10 record while the team from Kaunas come to the Spanish capital with a 14-11 record. There is a lot at stake in this game, and the makeup of the Playoffs might be affected by what goes down in Madrid.
