EuroLeague Predictions and Best Bets – January 26, 2021

| January 25, 2021 1:13 pm PDT

The 2020-21 EuroLeague season has seemingly been going on forever, but believe it or not, it does have an expiration date.

February is rapidly approaching, which before long will lead to the end. Bettors can rejoice, of course, as there is still plenty of time to cash in on EuroLeague basketball betting.

Tuesday offers a fine opportunity, with a five-game slate hitting the hardwood. Here’s a quick look at who is in action.

  • Crvena Zvezda vs. Anadolu Efes
  • Bayern Munich vs. Khimki Moscow
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Fenerbahce Ulker
  • Olympiacos vs. Olimpia Milano
  • Zenit vs. FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona is the main attraction here, as they took back first place with a big win last week. I left you with my favorite EuroLeague predictions and top betting picks on Friday and delivered three winning bets.

I only liked three, too, so it was a clean 3-0 sweep.

My only issue is I didn’t go full bore with Fenerbahce, who upset CSKA Moscow.

I will always be happy to take any and all wins, though. Let’s see if I can’t rack up a few more as I hand out my favorite EuroLeague bets for Tuesday, January 26th, 2021.

Crvena Zvezda vs. Anadolu Efes Predictions

  • Anadolu Efes to beat Crvena Zvezda
  • Predicted total: 150-155

Shane Larkin and Anadolu Efes get us going on Thursday, as they host a suspect Crvena Zvezda team that is prone to blowouts.

The top EuroLeague betting sites are pricing things like it could go that way, but 10.5 points is still 10.5 points. It’s also worth noting that Crvena kept it within nine points in the first meeting.

I think Anadolu Efes holds down the fort at home, but don’t be shocked if this game is a bit closer than it probably should be.

Bayern Munich vs. Khimki Moscow Predictions

  • Bayern Munich to beat Khimki Moscow
  • Predicted total: 165-170

Alexey Shved should be back after missing Khimki’s last game due to injury. He wasn’t on hand to help prevent the team’s 12th straight defeat, while the club is now just 2-19 on the year.

There’s no doubt this is the worst team in the EuroLeague, so betting in favor of Khimki Moscow just feels like a bad call these days.

Bayern to win and cover looks plenty fine, but this game should still field plenty of scoring. I think the Over stands out as the best bet.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Fenerbahce Ulker Predictions

  • Fenerbahce Ulker to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv
  • Predicted total: 155-160

Fenerbahce got a huge win last Friday, which pushed them above .500 and extended their winning streak to six games.

I don’t see much reason to bet against them here, especially with Nando de Colo feeling it lately. He’s coming off a gem where he scored 22 points and dished out nine assists.

Maccabi Tel Aviv is solid, and they’re at home, but Fenerbahce is surging at the right time.

Olympiacos vs. Olimpia Milano Predictions

  • Olimpia Milano to beat Olympiacos
  • Predicted total: 150-155

Milan is quietly one of the better teams right now, as they’re 13-7 after a nice four-game winning streak.

The team is extremely balanced and in great form. They could even be getting Shavon Shields back.

That would give them a considerable boost, as he was averaging 12.9 points per game before getting hurt. Olympiacos should put up a fight thanks to the feisty play of Kostas Sloukas, but I like Milan to pull out the win at home.

Zenit vs. FC Barcelona Predictions

  • Barcelona to beat Zenit
  • Predicted total: 150-155

This is undeniably the biggest game of the day, as Barcelona hopes to preserve its #1 spot in the 2021 EuroLeague standings.

Nikola Mirotic wasn’t amazing in his return to action on Friday, but he’s back.

That by itself is massive for a deep and balanced Barcelona squad.

Zenit is a tougher out than some may realize, of course. They’re a stellar 13-6 on the year and probably have their own ideas about surging for a run at first place.

Kevin Pangos and Arturas Gudaitis head a strong Zenit squad that has gone 5-1 over its last six games. Barcelona wins, but Zenit should keep it close.

Best EuroLeague Bets for Tuesday, January 26th

  • Crvena Zvezda (+10.5) -104
  • Bayern Munich vs. Khimki Moscow Over 165.5 (-112)
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv (+4.5) -104
  • Zenit (+7.5) -103

I’m mostly just eating up the value on this slate. There aren’t any amazing underdog plays I feel passionate about, but the spreads for Crvena and Zenit feel a tad thick.

Maccabi Tel Aviv is solid and at home, and I think they give bettors enough wiggle room, as well.

Khimki will eventually win again (I think?), but I’m not excited to bet on it. To be frank, I’m not racing to bet against them, either. I do like their offense and awful defense, though, so you can safely hammer the Over.

Usually, their game totals are obscene, and when they are, I like the Under. On Tuesday, it’s much more palatable, so the Over feels like one of the best EuroLeague bets to make.
