Euroleague Baskonia vs Fenerbahce Picks, Spread and Prediction

Two teams placed outside the top-8 of the Euroleague Basketball face off in the 19th round of action, when the Turkish Fenerbahce (8-10), are hosting the Spanish Champions Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz (9-9). The hosts are looking much better lately and have three consecutive wins. The guests are 3-1 in their last 4 games and are coming off a huge home victory against CSKA.

Date/Time: 02-12-2021, 12:45 EDT Spread: Fenerbahce -3.5 Total: +152.5

Fenerbahce (8-10) are tied for 12th in the league. In their last game they won Crvena Zvezda on the road, 71-73, not beating the odds. Jan Vesely leads the team both in scoring with 11.5 ppg and in rebounding with 5.3 per game. Baskonia (9-9) are tied for 10th and are coming off a home win against CSKA Moscow, 95-93, beating the odds. Alec Peters leads the team in scoring with 11.6 ppg, adding 3.5 rebounds per game.

In their previous meeting in the first round of the season, Baskonia won at home by 18 points. In last season’s Istanbul game, Fener won by 7. Fenerbahce are 4-5 at home, while Baskonia are 3-5 on the road. The hosts have back-to-back home wins, while the guests are 1-3 in their last 4 road games. Fener have the worse offense in the league (73.4 to 79.3 ppg) and Baskonia are also better defensively (77.1 to 78.4 ppg). Baskonia are second in rebounding (32.1 to 27.5) and third in assists made (19.6 to 17.7).

I’m going to pick Baskonia with +3.5 today. They have been better than Fener throughout the season and they will carry the momentum after their latest victory against the best team of the league. Fener might have won 3 straight, but all have been against teams outside the top-8.
