Game Totals Prediction

Barcelona missed the lead in the Euroleague standings and got very angry. She will try to remedy the situation in the near future. "Blue-garnet" will try to take advantage of their native stands, because they are just great at home. CSKA has shown far from the best basketball lately. Even after the victory over Maccabi from Tel Aviv, the Moscow “army men” are unlikely to be able to quickly return to their optimal condition again. And the percentage of hits from a long distance suffers especially strongly. We predict that Barcelona will be stronger with a handicap of (-4.5) points
