Baskonia vs Olimpia Milano: Prediction and Betting Tips

19:30, Oct 08 2021
Baskonia vs Olimpia Milano prediction for Friday’s Euroleague clash at Fernando Buesa Arena in Vitoria-Gasteiz. In the second round of the 2021/22 Euroleague tournament and after losing their opening match, Baskonia hosts Olimpia Milano who won their first game. You can follow our free preview prediction and betting tips on this page.

Offense is Baskonia’s biggest problem for now

Baskonia are one of the leading basketball teams in Spain. To point out, the Spanish side have been playing regularly in the Euroleague and finished runners-up in 2001 and 2005. In addition, Baskonia lifted the Spanish League title on four occasions the last one being in 2019-20.

The start of 2021/22 Euroleague was unimpressive, to say the least, as coach Duka Ivanovic’s team lost by 25 points to Olympiacos. Moreover, they have a 2-2 record in the ACB Spanish League. Currently, Baskonia are on a three-match losing streak and coach Ivanovic needs to find solutions for his team’s offense.

Baskonia Key Stats

  • Baskonia couldn’t score more than 67 points in their last three games
  • In their match against Olympiacos, Baskonia made just 31% of their field goals
  • From the arc of three points, Baskonia made four shots out of 24 attempts

Olimpia Milano in good form as they face a tough trip

Olimpia Milano had a very impressive Euroleague 2020/21 season. In fact, they lost to Barcelona in the semi-final by just two points and won third place after defeating CSKA. 

Important to realize that Milano have won three Euroleague titles. Also, with 28 Italian championships and numerous domestic trophies, Olimpia are Italy’s most titled club.

Currently, coach Ettore Messina’s team is on a 5W-1L record in all competitions. Their first win against CSKA by ten points is the highlight of their season so far. Hence coach Messina will hope his team can maintain that form and come back from Spain with a win.

Olimpia Milano Key Stats

  • In their match against CSKA, Milano made 50% of their three-point shots
  • The average points scored by Milano in their last three matches is 84
  • Against Trento, Milano had a 54.7 field goal percentage

Baskonia vs Olimpia Milano Prediction

Baskonia won the two matches against Milano last season. However, and judging on their form this season, the bookies are favoring Milano to win with odds of 1.52 at Vbet.

As noted earlier in the preview and statistics, Baskonia are having trouble in their offense. Thus unless coach Ivanovic finds solutions for this issue, they will have difficulties against Milano. Especially if we consider that Messina’s side limited their opponents to under 70 points in their last three matches.

As a result of the above mentioned, we think Milano can win this game. In addition, under 156 points with odds of 1.65 at Vbet will be our second prediction.
