Euroleague Crvena Zvezda vs Real Madrid Picks, Spread and Prediction

Date/Time: 02-18-2021, 13:00 EDT Spread: Real Madrid -12.5 Total: +156.5

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 are 7-1 in their last 8 games. On the other hand, the guests are 1-3 in their last 4 and 2-8 in their last 10.

Real Madrid (13-6) are third in the league. In their last game they won Bayern on the road, 76-81 in overtime, beating the odds. Crvena Zvezda (6-13) are tied in the second-worse place of the league. In their last game they lost on the road by Valencia, 91-71, not beating the odds.

In the first round of this season, Real won on the road by 6 points. They lead Zvezda 7-3 total wins in Euroleague and 3-1 at home. They have lost their previous meeting in Madrid by 4 points, but have won the three previous ones by 30, 27 and 24 points. Real are 7-2 at home this season, while Zvezda are 2-7 on the road. Real Madrid have the third-best offense in the league, scoring 82.2 ppg to Zvezda’s league-low of 74.5. They are also better defensively (77.6 to 78.7 ppg).

I’m going to pick Real Madrid with -12.5 today. The guests are falling apart and they have lost their last two road games by 20 and 29 points, which makes things easier for a superior Real Madrid squad.
