Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Olympiacos vs Maccabi


Last season of the Euroleague, the team created a lot of noise around itself. First she won the regular season, and then managed to reach the finals. In the new season of the tournament, roughly the same is now expected from the Greeks.

Olympiacos is currently in seventh place in the competition table, with 11 wins and ten losses. The Greeks have no success in the two extreme battles of the Euroleague. The team is immediately pressed from behind by three competitors, lagging behind only by additional criteria. You need to end your streak of failures before it drags on.

Olympiacos basketball is built on tight defense. This is the style of the team. The Greeks will act in precisely this manner with the Israelis. Maccabi's main trump card is attacks. If we manage to neutralize the opponent’s main argument, then everything should end positively for Olya.


The Israelis faced a big challenge in the new season. Due to the political situation, they are now based in Belgrade (Serbia), but it should be noted that Maccabi is taking this blow with dignity.

The club currently ranks sixth in the Euroleague table (12/9). The team stumbled twice in the last three matches of the tournament. Four competitors are pushing the team closer in the table, only one success behind; by the way, “Oli” is among them. It turns out that losing in the upcoming battle is highly discouraged.

The team likes to work in an attacking style. You need to do exactly the same with the Greeks. The only problem is that Olympiacos knows how to defend. Here you need to come up with some options to get past these dense enemy defensive redoubts. Although there are some doubts here. In extreme battles in the Euroleague, Maccabi does not show good performance (we are talking about gaining points in the team’s two recent misfires in the competition).

Game Totals Prediction

A match of direct rivals, who are now a bit off their rhythm. The visitors know how to score points, but at the moment even with this moment they are not doing well. The home team is a professional in terms of defence. It is difficult to predict the outcome in such a meeting, but there is a huge temptation to bet on the total under (161.5) for 1.9. Everything suggests that this bet is a must-win here.
