Euroleague Olimpia Milano vs Alba Berlin Picks, Spread and Prediction

Two teams on opposite trajectories are clashing in the 20th round of Euroleague Basketball, when the German Champions Alba Berlin (7-12), are hosting the Italian Olimpia Milano (11-7). The hosts are struggling and are 1-5 in their last 6 games. On the other hand, the guests have back-to-back wins and are looking to extend their winning streak today.

Date/Time: 02-14-2021, 14:00 EDT Spread: Alba Berlin +7 Total: +162.5

Alba Berlin (7-12) are 14th in the league. In their last game they lost by Anadolu Efes on the road, 84-76, beating the odds. They have back-to-back home defeats. Olimpia Milano (11-7) are tied for 5th and are coming off a home victory against Valencia, 95-80, beating the odds. They are 5-1 in their last 6 road games.

In their previous meeting in the first round of this season, Milano won at home by 20 points. They lead Alba 3-1 wins all-time in Euroleague, having won both road games. Alba are 4-6 at home this season, while Milano are 6-3 on the road. Milano have the second-best offense in the league (82.3 to 77.4 ppg) and they are also better defensively (80.2 to 83.6 ppg). They have the second-best 3-point percentage in the league (42% to 35.5%), while Alba are second in assists made.

I’m going to pick Alba Berlin with +7 today. Even though the guests are the favorite for the win, expect the guests to force a closer game than that. It will be the second game in three days for both teams. Milano might be streaky on the road, but their last 5 road wins have been by an average of 5 points.
