Match Predict – Handicap (+4) for Baskonia
In the last two head-to-head encounters in Lithuania, Zalgiris has won. Baskonia has lost 5 of its previous 6 away games, so we doubt the away team will be successful.
Total Points Under 163
At Zalgirio Arena, the Lithuanians are trying to use a defensive model. So far, this tactic has brought them success. Thanks to this, Maksvytis’ men have won 8 of their 11 home games. There’s no reason to change things since their careful play under the basket has been paying off so far. Most likely, the home team will once again try to quench Baskonia’s offensive fervour.
Baskonia Points Over 80.5
The Lithuanians have not scored more than 80 points in their last five games.
