Tip Preview:
Another loss in the Liga Endesa and another win in the Champions League for Murcia who will soon have to find a way of translating their impressive continental form into domestic wins as well if they are to avoid relegation. Breogan couldn't be a more accessible opponent in that regard. After a small resurrection back in December, the newly-promoted Galician team has suffered 4 straight losses and is the primary candidate to follow Gipuzkoa in the second division, at least in my eyes. Losing Norel to injury since the start of the season and letting Jordan go to Andorra certainly didn't help their cause while replacing Kinsey with Millsap hasn't paid off either, considering Millsap's limited impact so far. There's no denying this is a crucial game especially for Murcia, considering that a loss here will mean that they will find themselves two wins away from Breogan and with Valencia and Barcelona coming up next, this is a scenario that simply have to avoid at all costs. I have no doubt that Murcia are the better team here and will eventually find a way to turn things around and avoid relegation, hopefully starting tonight. Anything over 2.15 looks good enough to get involved here. For anyone not able to take this bet with Bet365, limit your stake to 1,5 units.

Baskonia are hanging in there despite injuries to key players Shengelia and Granger and are just inside the playoff zone at the moment while tonight they go against one of their direct competitors Bayern, sitting one win above them in the standings. The Germans have been the biggest surprise of the Euroleague this season as coach Radonjic has built a very competitive team relying on an efficient offense and their 1.7 assists to turnovers ratio speaks volumes of the quality of their possessions. Bayern are still undefeated in the Bundesliga after 18 matches and also in great shape in the Euroleague losing only one of their last 4 games, to CSKA in Moscow after giving the Russians a big scare, leading by 5 points going into the 4th quarter. The rebounding battle is going to be the key tonight and limiting Baskonia's second chances will go a long way toward staying competitive to the end. In any case Bayern have a better chance here than the odds suggest.

Tip Preview:
Another solid campaign for Obradoiro, currently sitting two wins above the relegation zone and dismissing early predictions that considered them one of the weakest teams and top candidates for relegation along with Gipuzkoa and Breogan. Despite a limited budget, one of the smallest in the league, Fernandez and his staff always seem to find a way of bringing excellent value for money players and emerging Vladimir Brodziansky is their latest discovery.
After 7 straight losses that dropped them second from bottom in the standings, Murcia have rolled the dice firing Juarez and signing an established, reputable coach as Sito Alonso and that may provide the psychological boost the team needed to get back on track. Despite their lack of reliable shooting and efficient playmaking that have limited them all season, this is still a competent team as their impressive 12-1 record in the Champions League demonstrates and I strongly believe that sooner or later will find a way to climb the table.
In the end this is a peculiar game between an overachieving Obradoiro and an underachieving Murcia and while I would agree that the hosts are slightly favourites here, the odds for a surprise Murcia win are just too good to ignore.

Tip Preview:
We have already talked abundantly about Fuenlabrada recently. They are a team screaming for help now. In the meantime they have added another 3 defeats to their record and have now lost 12 of their last 13 matches in all competitions. Admittedly they have shown a slightly better face against Real Madrid in a surprisingly close match and then rested a handful of starters against Nymburk for the Champions League putting their focus on tonight's encounter in an already crucial relegation battle.
Estudiantes are living without a doubt their best moment of the season. Despite facing a very demanding schedule they have won 4 of their last 5 matches, including impressive wins over rivals Real Madrid and Tenerife as the signings of Whittington and Gentile have added another dimension to their game.
Considering the current state of form of the two teams, I just can't see Fuenlabrada as the clear favourites here. Their last performance in the Spanish League may have left a glimmer of hope but confirming their progress and getting the win, especially in a match with so much at stake is an entirely different thing.

They are also riding a 7 game winning streak in the Eurocup going into tonight's encounter in Serbia and are just one win away from qualifying to the playoffs. For Crvena Zvezda it's already a crucial game having lost 2 of their first 3 in the Group G but will have to contain Valencia's high-octane offense without Lazic, a defensive specialist and key contributor on that end of the floor. Štark Arena in Belgrade is one of the hardest, loudest courts in Europe and winning there is always a tough proposition but if anyone can do it, is red-hot Valencia. At the current price we can surely back the Spanish team here.

Tip Preview:
Fuenlabrada are on an incredible free fall lately, one I admit I wasn't expecting to continue much longer considering the level of talent available, but it does. After the win over Obradoiro which seemed it could mark the end of this terrible run, Fuenlabrada suffered another couple of heavy defeats against Hapoel Jerusalem and Tenerife and most concerning weren't the losses themselves to two superior opponents but the level of performances and lack of progress shown.
AEK are arriving in Spain in fantastic form having won 9 of their last 10 games in the Champions League and 8 of their last 10 in the Greek A1, losing only to giants Panathinaikos and Olympiakos during that stretch. Moreover the signings of James and especially Theodore have given coach Banchi another couple of solid contributors, replacing the disappointing Roberson and Rathan-Mayes.
Fuenlabrada are already out of the Champions League and their attention shifts now to the upcoming matches of Spanish League where they are just one win over the relegation zone. Hopefully both AEK and Fuenlabrada will confirm their current state of form and reward us in the process.

Avellino have departed for Turkey in a state of emergency as Nicholls and Green have joined the injury list along N'Diaye and Costello, leaving the team with no forwards or centers with 3 point range and giving coach Vucinic big headaches tactically ahead of tomorrow's clash. The 8 point handicap Banvit has to cover here seems very achievable considering the circumstances.

The Indiana Pacers are having an excellent campaign so far, 3rd in the Eastern Conference despite their only All-Star Victor Oladipo has failed to repeat last season's impressive numbers while in his last 3 outings is shooting just 26% from the field. There is also another concerning issue in Indiana's season and that's their record when facing tougher opposition. In fact while they are a spectacular 20-3 against teams in the lower half of the standings in both Conferences, they are just 10-12 when battling against teams currently in the playoff zone. The Charlotte Hornets are carrying a good momentum coming into tonight's game having won their last 3 against Spurs, Kings and Suns with a combined 54 point margin and while they have found it hard when playing on the road with a 6-15 record, their price justifies taking the risk backing them here.

Tip Preview:
Both Zaragoza and Andorra have been wildly inconsistent and frustrating so far, capable of alternating impressive performances and wins with highly disappointing defeats. Zaragoza have prevailed over Badalona with an incredible 46 point margin, only to lose at home to lowly Obradoiro a week later. They have won at a difficult court like Tenerife's but also lost at home to Fuenlabrada. As for Andorra, a similarly frustrating sequence of results. Huge wins over Baskonia and Real Madrid but also a troubling home loss to the weakest team of the ACB, Gipuzkoa and an almost 30 point loss to Gran Canaria. So in normal circumstances I wouldn't expect to get involved in an encounter between these two teams as predicting their next performance is like walking through a minefield. You never know what comes next. But then I also wouldn't expect to see Andorra's win paying close to 3.00 but it does and we just can't ignore these odds. Andorra are at least on a good run at the moment winning 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions including impressive Eurocup wins over Unics and Zenit. It may count for nothing tomorrow but it's a risk we can afford to take at this price.

Tip Preview:
An already crucial game between two teams fighting to stay in the top Greek division. Kymi have made a big mistake parting ways with promising young coach Kastritis back in November as results haven't improved, losing 5 of their last 6 games despite a favourable schedule and most alarmingly without putting much of a fight in any of their losses. Now they find themselves dead last in the standings. At least today they can count on newly-arrived Matt Williams jr. a shooter coming from Finland to help what has been by far the worst offense in the Greek A1. Panionios may be coming from 5 consecutive defeats but they have collected less than what they actually deserved, showing a competitive spirit despite facing far superior opposition. A new reinforcement for Panionios as well with experienced El-Amin replacing Singler.
Williams's impact for Kymi today is probably going to be a key factor in deciding the winner. While he has performed decently in the Finnish league, the Greek A1 is a big step up both tactically and in terms of defensive intensity, so his immediate adjustment and contribution remains to be seen. To sum up, I just can't see Kymi as the big favourites, considering they have won just once in their last 12 matches, performed very poorly during that stretch and there is the psychological burden for the home team to take into account too, this being a must win game for them. Panionios is good value here at 2.69.

The Brooklyn Nets have shown great resiliency to overcome LeVert's injury and are perhaps surprisingly well inside the playoff zone in the Eastern conference while Russell is having an excellent 2019 so far averaging nearly 23 points/game and taking more and more responsabilities with each passing day. Curiously this will the third time already we will be backing the Nets but with prices exceeding 3.00 at the moment, I have no second thoughts. Having already payed us handsomely the previous two, let's see if we can make it 3 out of 3!

Fuenlabrada were downright embarrassing against Dijon last week and tonight play their last hopes against group leaders Hapoel Jerusalem, so clearly a huge obstacle ahead of them. The Israeli team have been scary at times and their +15 point differential is second best in the Champions League while ranking among the best in both offensive and defensive efficiency. Still they are not unbeatable as Antwerp and AEK have proved. The Spanish team have at least returned to victories in their domestic league prevailing against Obradoiro and getting a much needed morale boost ahead of the difficult schedule that lies ahead. For all their deficiencies I'm convinced that Fuenlabrada are capable of playing a much better basketball than what they have in recent times and the return of team leader and fan favourite Marko Popovic may provide the necessary spark to get out of their slump. Will it be enough? Obviously this is something of a long shot but still the odds are totally dismissing Fuenlabrada's hopes tonight and quite frankly I have seen much bigger surprises taking place.

The Utah Jazz have slightly under-achieved this season although having faced the toughest schedule in the NBA and played 25 of their first 42 games on the road so far certainly only made things worse. The schedule gets more favourable in January with 11 of their next 14 games at home but the Jazz are nowhere near where they wished to be health-wise. All 3 of their point guards(Rubio, Exum, Neto) are out with injuries, meaning Mitchell and Ingles will have to take care of ball handling and playmaking duties. The Lakers have unsurpisingly struggled after losing Lebron James (and Kuzma along the way) going on 3-5 record but remain inside the playoff zone. Kuzma has returned to normal duty on Tuesday and after shaking off some rust in his first game, he erupted for a career-high 41 against the Pistons leading his team to their second straight win. The Lakers are clearly an entirely different team without Lebron James but have found a good rhythm lately and I still like their chances against short-handed Utah who have only a 9-8 record to show playing at home.

Milan are struggling to keep up with the frenetic schedule of the Euroleague. They have now lost 6 of their last 8 games in the competition, their only wins coming over lowly Buducnost at home and against an out of form Panathinaikos in Athens. Injuries to two key players like Nedovic and Tarczewski have further complicated things for coach Pianigiani and shortened the rotations significantly. Not a good sign entering a crucial January for Milan's playoff aspirations. Barcelona have been a mystery team so far but are carrying a good momentum going into tonight's game. They have won their last 6 matches in all competitions and usually they are at their best when facing teams at the lower half of the standings, having a 8-3 record against them despite a couple of close losses on the road to Gran Canaria and Buducnost. Barcelona are the second best team in the Euroleague in defensive efficiency and given Nedovic's injury, will have a good chance of limiting Milan's high-octane offense and escaping with the victory.
I apologize for the small delay. Unfortunately just as I was about to post the pick, odds at Pinnacle & Bet365 dropped simultaneously, so 5Dimes and William Hill have the best odds at the moment. Do not go lower than 2.20 in any case.

Meanwhile in the Champions League, they are counting 6 straight losses and tomorrow is probably their last chance of covering some ground and getting closer to the qualification zone. The same can be said of Dijon. With a 2-7 record, there is simply no more room for error while the heavy defeat to Le Portel for the French league led coach Legname to publicly criticize his players for their recent performances. Almost 10 days have passed since then with no official games played and how the team will respond, remains to be seen. This is a do or die game for two teams desperate to get out of their respective slump but Fuenlabrada are clearly the better team here.

The same cannot be said of Avellino, still in need of an additional guard after the departure of Norris Cole and waiting for the recovery of big men Costello and N'Diaye. Avellino are doing a commendable effort despite the adversities and they have won 4 straight in Serie A including impressive home victories against Milan and Sassari. Having said that, the continuous matches should eventually catch up with them considering the reduced rotations and the advanced average age of the team. Anwil have already given the Italians a big scare in the first round losing only after overtime and I like their chances here of upsetting Avellino tomorrow.

Murcia are in good form at the moment. Relying on their tough defense, 4th best in efficiency, they have managed to move closer to the playoff zone but their struggle from the 3 point line is really limiting their offensive potential and efficiency (second last in the league, better only to lowly Gipuzkoa). Badalona suffered a small slump right before the World Cup qualifiers losing to Fuenlabrada and Zaragoza but have returned strong after the much needed break getting a couple of big wins over Malaga and Tenerife and recovering all injured players, making an already deep roster even deeper. Both teams are in good shape currently but Badalona playing finally at full strength now are a really dangerous opponent and are getting underestimated here.

Recent roster changes don't seem to pay off for Torino so far with two heavy defeats against Varese and Malaga and another home game against last placed Pistoia won only after an improbable comeback in the 4th quarter. Performances are shockingly bad at the moment and coach Brown's position is in danger unless things improve dramatically soon. Avellino's financial difficulties, the departure of star player Norris Cole and now N'Diaye's injury had the opposite effect of what many people expected as the team united under all their problems to resoundingly beat Sassari on Sunday. Obviously the problems did not just magically disappear but even without Cole, Costello and N'Diaye, this is still an opponent capable of causing trouble especially against a team as vulnerable as Torino is right now. The value is clearly with the visitors here.

Tip Preview:
After their latest defeat at Brindisi, Virtus Bologna are officially in crisis. The break for the World Cup Qualifiers didn't help either as they have now suffered 5 losses in their last 6 games, only winning against last placed Pistoia despite a pretty affordable schedule during that stretch. Second from last in both defensive efficiency and rebounding rate are deeply concerning for Bologna who tomorrow will be missing top scorer Pietro Aradori too. Reggiana remain an enigma. After a surprising win at Brindisi and a highly competitive performance at Trento, they took a step back yesterday losing at home against Trieste. Meanwhile the recent additions of K.C. Rivers and Bryon Allen further complicates any secure assessment of the team's true potential. A game of many variables tomorrow which makes it highly unpredictable and all things considered it's worth taking a chance with Reggiana here. Biggest odds at 5Dimes at the moment (4.40), so make sure you grab them if you have an account there.

Tip Preview:
A very interesting match at Berlin that will decide first place in Group B. Alba are having an excellent season so far with a combined 15-4 record between Eurocup and Bundesliga but having said that, I can't see why they are getting so heavily faroured tonight. Lokomotiv Kuban are justifiably the biggest favourite for the Eurocup crown and even though they have failed to dominate as much as was expected of them which led to the replacement of coach Obradovic with his assistant Jovanovic, they are still top of the Group with a 8-1 record. Each team with a serious absence with Hermannsson and Whitehead missing the game but good enough depth to cover for them adequately. Opening odds at 2.34 for a Lokomotiv victory seemed just about right to me but at 2.87 currently represent good value for us.
