Baskonia vs Barcelona Best Bet: Thursday, January 19th

Baskonia who have lost their last 3 Euroleague games in a row in a row, will host Barcelona tonight in Vitoria. Barca have been battling for the top of the standings constantly but have been facing a lot of injury issues over the year. Sarunas Jasikevicious knows how to handle the Basks as Barca have won the last 3 encounters against them.

Baskonia vs Barcelona Preview

Thu, Jan 19th. 19:45 pm (UK time)

As expected, Baskonia is declining. They do not have the needed quality for the top of the Euroleague table and only time will show. They are currently sitting on an 11W 8L record after losing their last 3 EL games. They have been missing M. Howard recently who is their leading scorer with 18PPG and he will be ready for tonight.

Baskonia is the 2nd best offence in the Euroleague. They are scoring 84.5 PPG and hitting 11 shots behind the arc on average. These numbers are also declining, and we believe the trend will be kept after tonight. Regarding the injury sheet, Baskonia has been cleared, and they will not be missing anyone for tonight.

Barcelona has been playing the whole season with ups and downs. A lot of that can be prescribed to missing key players such as N. Mirotic and C. Higgins. Since they have established a healthy and full roster we are expecting them to start winning in streaks in the Euroleague finally. They are playing solid defence, only letting their opponents score 77 PPG. They are known to be playing positional and slow-paced basketball on the away court.

At home, their possessions count is much higher. We expect them to dictate the tempo of the game tonight with their experienced European PGs and if they manage to slow the game down to 75-80 possessions per team they are in a good spot to secure the win in the end. Barcelona has S. Martinez with a “questionable” status for tonight.

Barca have won the last 3 games against this opponent. They were not even complete in these games like they will be tonight where we are expecting them to show their best face and secure another win against this shaken Baskonia team.
