Barcelona favorites for a third successive win
Having tasted the bitter end to their last season campaign by losing the final, Barcelona started the new season with winning ways. As a matter of fact, it was more like a training match for Barca in their opening game. To clarify, the Blaugrana won by 32 points and dominated all quarters except the third one.
Since their defeat to Real Madrid in the Super Cup, Barcelona are on an eight-match winning streak. Furthermore, Barca’s defense are the key to this year’s results as they kept their opponents from scoring over 70 points in six matches.

Olympiacos hoping for a similar performance as the last round
Another one of the six undefeated teams so far in the Euroleague, Olympiacos, have a very tough task. However, last season the Greek side beat the Spanish giants here. Surely they will hope to repeat the feat again this year.
In the previous round, Olympiacos beat the other Spanish giants Real Madrid in Athens. Notably, the Greek side’s defense had a great game limiting Real to just 68 points. In addition, coach Bartzokas’s team’s aggressive defense led to the Spanish side to score just 39% of their field goals.
Olympiacos key stats
- The average shots made from the three-point line by Olympiacos is 29%
- Olympiacos made just 60% of their free throws in the Euroleague
- The Reds grabbed on average 35.5 rebounds
Barcelona vs Olympiacos prediction
Olympiacos’s defense will be in a tough test in this contest. Notably, coach Bartzokas’s team limited their opponents to just 59 points on average. Consequently, it will be interesting to see whether they can be as effective against a Barcelona offense averaging 88 points.
However, Olympiacos proved they can be very unpredictable when they beat Barca here last season and lost at home. Also, it is important to note that, Barcelona are much better in terms of rebounding and that could be key in this match.
With odds of 1.25 at Vbet for a Barca win, we will look elsewhere to make some profits in this game. Hence we will risk it and predict that Barca will dominate and have a big win. Thus we will back over 148 points.
