EuroLeague Predictions and Best Bets – March 26, 2021
Friday brings another fun EuroLeague betting slate to sports fans, while top-ranked Barcelona is back in action.
There are just four games on the schedule, but there should be plenty worth betting on. Here’s a quick look at who is playing on Friday, March 26th, 2021.
- Khimki vs. Zenit
- Baskonia vs. Milano
- Olympiacos vs. Fenerbahce
- Barcelona vs. Alba Berlin
This is an interesting EuroLeague betting slate, as it’s full of mismatches.
If you’re just looking for straight up winners, you probably don’t need much help, but it could be tough to find the ideal bet in some of these games.
I’ll provide assistance in both areas, of course. Join me for a full breakdown of today’s schedule via my EuroLeague predictions and top betting picks on March 26th.
Khimki vs. Zenit Predictions
- Zenit to beat Khimki
- Predicted total: 165-170
Anyone following EuroLeague play this season knows where this one is headed. Khimki have won just one game all year, and they enter this one as big 10-point underdogs.
They can put up points, but they don’t defend well, and they’re also not at full strength. The team has been missing Devin Booker and Alexey Shved lately, although the latter could return for this one.

Shved would obviously provide a spark, but Zenit is the far more established team. Khimki ATS and the Over are somewhat appealing, but this is likely the game to stay away from.
Baskonia vs. Milano Predictions
- Baskonia to beat Milano
- Predicted total: 150-155
This looks like the best game on the slate from a competitive perspective. BetOnline has priced Baskonia as the mild -1 favorite, but this is basically a pick’em.
You could preach value either way, but it’s worth noting that Milano is not at full strength. Malcolm Delaney is out currently, and may not be back until the playoffs.
That isn’t nothing, plus Baskonia is hosting and are 7-1 over their last eight. They look like a solid team to latch onto here, while the scoring in their last few games may lean this one toward the Under.
Olympiacos vs. Fenerbahce Predictions
- Fenerbahce to beat Olympiacos
- Predicted total: 155-160
There is another solid game to work with here, as Fenerbahce is a light 4-point favorite on the road against Olympiacos.
My gut says they keep their positive momentum rolling here. They topped Olympiacos by seven earlier this year, and Olympiacos are just 3-8 over their last 11.
To be fair, the three wins have all come recently (and in a row), but I still favor Fenerbahce.
Barcelona vs. Alba Berlin Predictions
- Barcelona to beat Alba Berlin
- Predicted total: 150-155
This is a total mismatch, as Barcelona is the best team in the EuroLeague. They’ve already qualified for the playoffs, though, and it’s possible they start resting or limiting guys.
Alba Berlin own the league’s fourth worst record at 11-19, but they’ve turned it on of late with a 3-2 run over their last five. They were just 1-10 over their previous 11, of course, so it’s tough to know which version to trust.
Peyton Siva has been banged up and may not be available for this one, so him being out would make clearing things up a bit easier.
Ultimately, Barcelona is just too good – even if they randomly keep some guys out.
Best EuroLeague Bets for Friday, March 26th
I don’t want to mess with Khimki games too much. I think anytime there is a spread over 10, you need to at least consider it, but the best bet in that game is the Over.
Khimki can score pretty well, and their defense gives their opponent an amazing matchup. Even if Shved remains out, I think the 163 total feels a bit low.
Baskonia is part of the tightest game of the day when you look at pricing, but I give them the narrow edge. They look like a fine value bet as -116 favorites.
Fenerbahce is also a strong favorite to back. I don’t really want to go all-in on them to cover (-4), though, as Olympiacos has been heating up, and they’re still technically alive for a playoff push.
That does it for Friday’s EuroLeague predictions and betting picks. Hopefully these all serve you well. If you like these picks or are just ready to bet on the EuroLeague in general, check out the best basketball betting apps.
