Barcelona vs Crvena Zvezda Best Bet: Friday, March 17th

A series of tough games for Crvena Zvezda continues tonight as they will be hosted by Barcelona in Spain in the 28th round of this Euroleague campaign. Barcelona are coming off 2 losses and will surely try to stop the losing streak tonight against the shaken away team who are in a series of bad results.

Barcelona vs Crvena Zvezda Preview

Fri, Mar 17th. 19:30 pm (UK time)

Barcelona are currently sitting on a 17-10 record which is enough to land them at the 4th spot in the Euroleague standings. They are a very well-rounded and coached team, averaging almost 81 points per game while letting their opponents score only 77. They have a positive net margin of 4+ points. This margin increases on the home court even more. Barca had a lot of injury problems this season but they are finally healthy and ready to compete. For tonight’s game, they will not be missing anyone.

Crvena Zvezda had a tough loss against their eternal rival in the ABA game on Monday, dropping a 20-point lead and losing by 11. In the Euroleague, they’ve lost almost all realistic chances to compete for the top 8 spots after their recent losses to Panathinaikos and ALBA. It is safe to say they are not in a good spot at the moment. Taking into account that they will be missing O. Dobric and N. Nedovic due to injuries, we come to the conclusion that they do not present any value to cover the spread.

Even their known defence recently has been very poor, as they are letting their opponents score 83 points per game during the last 5-game stretch. As their top-8 chances dwindle, they will be shifting a lot of their focus to the domestic league in the coming weeks. This is where we see Barcelona’s chance to blow them out tonight and build confidence after losing the last 2 games.

Barcelona vs Crvena Zvezda Best Bet

Barcelona have won the last 7 home games against Crvena Zvezda who will even be missing two key players. The discrepancy in quality is too big between the two teams mixed with Barcelona’s hunger for victory and building confidence. We do not see any other outcome than a blowout victory for the home team.

  • Selection: Barcelona –9.5
