Top EuroLeague Picks for Round 6 Games on Tuesday, October 26

| October 25, 2021 10:54 am PDT

The EuroLeague is back. Round 6 starts on Tuesday, October 26, with five games. If you’re planning to do some basketball betting, you’re at the right place. I will now analyze three games in detail and provide my predictions.

I will also show you what I think for the remaining two and reveal my best picks of the day. If all this sounds good, let’s start!

Barcelona to Beat Fenerbahce

The EuroLeague odds have changed a lot since the start of the season. Before the 2021-22 campaign kicked off, the reigning champion, Anadolu Efes, was seen as the top favorite for the title. After five rounds, that’s no longer the case.

Heading into Round 6, Barcelona is the main trophy candidate. No surprise there, as this team has been nothing short of impressive so far, with nothing but wins in the previous five games.

Barça did have to finish the job in overtime in two games, but otherwise, this team has been killing it thus far.

Last Friday, we saw Barcelona’s best performance in the EuroLeague this season. The Spanish team demolished Zenit Petersburg 84-58 – the biggest win in the 2021-22 season so far.

The game in question was played in Spain, where this team always never fails to impress. On the road, however, we’ve seen Barça struggle in the past, albeit not against Fenerbahce. In fact, in the two previous games these two played in Turkey, Barcelona won each time.

Will Barça win again? I’m sure of that. It might not be a big win, but this team will record another victory on Tuesday.

Olimpia Milano to Beat Bayern

There are only two teams that still don’t have a single loss in the EuroLeague this season. One of those is Barcelona, the other one is Olimpia Milano.

What’s really impressive about Olimpia’s achievement is that this team has already faced some really tough opponents in the EuroLeague. We saw them beating the following teams:

  • CSKA Moscow 84-74 (at home)
  • Baskonia 78-64 (on the road)
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv 83-72 (at home)
  • Anadolu Efes 75-71 (at home)
  • Lyon 73-72 (at home)

This Tuesday, they travel to Germany to take on Bayern, a team that’s only played one home game this season in the EuroLeague. Their opponent was Barcelona, who beat them 80-72.

We will probably see Bayern losing another home game. The reason isn’t that they’re a bad team; it’s just that Olimpia Milano is much, much better.

Olympiacos to Beat Alba Berlin

Last season, Olympiacos went 7-10 at home. However, last season there were no fans around due to COVID-19. This season, with their fans to cheer them on, the Greeks won every single EuroLeague game.

Not only that, but Olympiacos is on a winning streak at home in the Greek Basket League as well.

Olympiacos also has a pretty impressive record against Alba Berlin at home, having won four of their five EuroLeague meetings. Still, the fact is that only two of those were played in recent times (2020).

What about Alba Berlin and their record on the road? It’s not too impressive, although we did see them win their past two away games.

One of those was the win over Crvena Zvezda in Belgrade in the EuroLeague. The German team did very well in that game, but the real reason why they won is that the Serbian side was horrible.

What this means is that those couple of games shouldn’t raise hope for Alba Berlin and its fans. This team is traveling to Greece to experience their fourth defeat in the 2021-22 season.

Picks for the Other Two EuroLeague Games on Tuesday

  • Monaco to Beat Crvena Zvezda
  • Maccabi Tel Aviv to Beat Zalgiris Kaunas

Crvena Zvezda did okay against CSKA Moscow in Russia but then ended up humiliated against Alba Berlin at home.

A couple of days after the defeat, they’re traveling to Monaco, where we’ll probably see them losing again. The defeat shouldn’t be horrible, but anything but a win for Monaco would be a big surprise.

It’s a similar case when it comes to the Maccabi Tel Aviv vs. Zalgiris Kaunas game. The hosts are a better team, but we probably aren’t going to see a blowout win.

Best EuroLeague Picks for Tuesday, October 26

Barcelona to Beat Fenerbahce1.52
Olympiacos (-10.5) Against Alba Berlin1.91
Olimpia Milano to beat Bayern1.66

All three picks look certain to win and the prices are pretty decent, especially if the sportsbook of your choice is MyBookie.ag, which is where I found these odds.

This sportsbook will also let you parlay those picks, in which case, the odds would be around 4.82.

On top of everything, you can even include Monaco (1.38) and Maccabi Tel Aviv (1.29). In that case, the cumulative odds would get to about 8.60.
