Euroleague Crvena Zvezda vs Real Madrid Picks, Spread and Prediction

Two squads sitting on opposite sides of Euroleague Basketball face off in the 19th round of action, when the Spanish Real Madrid (12-6), are hosting the Serbian Champions Crvena Zvezda mts (6-12). The hosts saw a six-game winning streak getting snapped and are looking to bounce back. The guests have been struggling for almost a month, being 2-7 in their last 9 games in that span.

Date/Time: 02-13-2021, 15:00 EDT Spread: Real Madrid -11.5 Total: +155

Real Madrid (12-6) are tied for second in the league. In their last game they lost at home by Olimpia Milano, 76-80, not beating the odds. Walter Tavares leads the team both in scoring with 11.6 ppg and in rebounding with 7.7 per game.

Crvena Zvezda (6-12) are fourth to last in the league and are coming off a home defeat by Fenerbahce, 71-73, not beating the odds. Jordan Loyd leads the team both in scoring with 18.7 ppg and in assists made with 3.4 per game.

In the first round of this season, Real won on the road by 6 points. They lead Zvezda 7-3 all-time in Euroleague and are 3-1 at home. They have lost their previous meeting in Madrid by 4 points, but have won the three previous by 30, 27 and 24 points. Real are 7-2 at home this season, while Zvezda are 2-6 on the road. Real Madrid have the second-best offense in the league, scoring 82.3 ppg to Zvezda’s second-worse of 74.7. Both teams are very close defensively, allowing 77.7 and 78 ppg each.

I’m going to pick Crvena Zvezda with +11.5 today. The hosts are the absolute favorite for the win, but the spread is just too much. Zvezda has lost by more than 11 points just once in their last 8 defeats and expect them to force a closer game than that today.

Crvena Zvezda mts vs Real Madrid Prediction: Crvena Zvezda mts +11.5 (-111)
