The Euroleague quarterfinals are “ante portas” with the Final Four participation as a prize so expect the top 8 teams of Europe to be focused. What better time to explore one or two betting opportunities.


The first odd that raised an eyebrow was the 1.79 in favor of Caja Laboral against Maccabi Tel Aviv. The hosts seem to be in a very good place recently, especially at home where they will have the support of their fiery fans chanting throughout the game. Last weekend Caja Laboral trashed Cajasol in the Fernando Buesa Arena with 81-57. The team is on a roll and I will bet on their form and home.

Real Madrid on the other hand were defeated in the extra time against Unicaja Malaga in a game that featured 4 triples in the last 30”. They should be somewhat tired, while they are also facing some injury problems. All that in the frame of Ettore Messina’s stepping down some 10 days ago. I am lured by the +6.5 handicap of Valencia in this one and I am betting on Svetislav Pesic’ wit and for Valencia to give a real fight in Caja Magica.

All odds are from Bet Red Kings.
