Real Madrid vs Maccabi
Real Madrid - Maccabi Tel Aviv
Real Madrid is on a mission to keep close to Fenerbache and today they should have a decenbt to easy task against a Maccabi team that is going better with the new coach Ioannis Sfairopoulos, but they're still average at most.
The Israeli team has a 4-4 record with the new coach, with 2 games won in the last minute, but they are still not producing against good defenses. In their past 8 games they have scored 77 at Anadolu (6th best defense in Euroleague), 70 ath home, against Fenerbahce (the best defense), 95 at home against Bayern (7th worst defense), 73 at Darussafaka (3rd worst defense), 79 at home against Baskonia (8th worst defense), 79 at home against Khimki (tied with Bayern as 7th worst defense), 73 at Zalgiris (tied with Baskonia at 80.7 ppg) and 94 at home against the Milan's second worst defense of the league.
Real has the second best offense in Euroleague (87.5 ppg), the second best defense (76 ppg) and the best points differential (11.5 ppg). For the home games they allow in average 75.37 ppg and score 91.5.
For the past 5 home games they allowed 74 to Khimki, 76 to Gran Canaria, 93 to CSKA, 65 to Barcelona and 68 to Panathinaikos.
Overall, there are 4 Euroleague games since anyone managed to score more than 72 points against Real.
Their past 3 home wins came at 21, 27 and 13 points while Maccabi failed to cover the spread in their last 4 road losses.
The "madridistas" are in full roster while Maccabi will still miss Tarik Black.
All af the above being said, I think we have good reasons to expect a home win somewhere between 15 and 25 points differential, with the guests held under 75 points.
My picks, arranged by the trust I put in them:
Real Madrid ATS
Maccabi under 77 points
Real over 88 points
Let's go green!
