Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Baskonia Odds
Maccabi plays quite variable this season and their results are solely dependent on their attacking performance. Although they have a huge defensive potential, they don’t pay much attention to defense at all. They play at a very fast pace and force the game in transition and a large number of three-point shots. They are at the very top of the EuroLeague in terms of points scored, while they have the second-worst defense in the league and concede 87.5 points on average.
They depend a lot on the duo of Brown and Baldwin, who are the driving force of the team and score 17 points each on average. In the last round, they struggled a lot against the decimated Efes and broke their resistance only in the fourth quarter. Brown was the most efficient with 21 points, while the x-factor was Webb, who hit 4 three points shots from 7 attempts.
Baskonia Team News
After a very bad start in the Euroleague, Baskonia was reborn with the arrival of Dusko Ivanovic. Ivanovic found a role for all players and Baskonia looks as compact as possible in both directions. Baskonia, like Maccabi, is an offensive-oriented team, that plays for the basket more, but they are much more specific in defense.
However, they lost in the last two matches. First, they were defeated by Virtus in the Euroleague, while in the Endesa League, they were defeated by Barcelona with a 20-point difference. Howard, who is the best scorer and player in Baskonia, played a very bad match against Virtus. He scored only 11 points on 3/13 field goal shooting. The absence of Matt Costello, who brings additional strength under the basket of Baskonia, but can also spread the racket and hit from a distance, is quite noticeable.

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Baskonia Prediction
Matches without an audience, such as the one played by Maccabi in Belgrade, are usually without much tension and are much more relaxed. Maccabi and Baskonia play very fast and attacking basketball, and we expect that this match will also result in a higher number of points and that the attackers will be in a good mood on both sides.
