Euroleague Play-offs betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Fenerbahce Beko vs Real Madrid and Anadolu Efes vs CSKA Moscow.

Fenerbahce Beko vs Real Madrid (16:30 BST) - Third Place Game


Fenerbahce and Real Madrid are determined to end the season on a bright note when they face off for third-place honours. This is a rematch of last season’s finale in Belgrade that was won by Real Madrid. Fenerbahce lost to fellow Turkish side Anadolu Efes 92-73 in the semi-final while Real Madrid blew a double-digit lead in the third period as they suffered a 95-90 defeat to CSKA Moscow. Fenerbahce and Real Madrid split their two meetings in the regular season with each team winning at home. Newly-crowned league MVP Jan Vesely, Kostas Sloukas and Nikola Kalinic will lead Fenerbahce in their quest for a maiden third-place finish in this competition. Vesely had 14 points against Efes despite being not 100% while Kalinic added 12. Head coach Zeljko Obradovic will also count on Marko Guduric, Ali Muhammed, Nicolo Melli and Erick Green, who had 13 points in the semi-final. Leading Real Madrid in this match-up are Anthony Randolph and Sergio Llull. Other key players for head coach Pablo Laso are Trey Thompkins, Facundo Campazzo, Jaycee Carroll, Walter Tavares and Gustavo Ayon. We expect Real Madrid to triumph in this duel.

Anadolu Efes vs CSKA Moscow (19:30 BST) - Final


This season’s much-awaited Euroleague final will feature CSKA Moscow against Anadolu Efes. CSKA reached the championship game after rallying past Real Madrid 95-90 in Friday’s second semi-final. The Russian giants trailed by 14 points in the third period before dominating the final quarter 30-17. Nando De Colo scored 10 of his 23 points in the final 10 minutes to lead CSKA back to the title game for the first time since 2016 when they hoisted the prestigious trophy in Berlin. Sergio Rodriguez also scored 23 points while Will Clyburn added 18. Head coach Dimitris Itoudis expects his prolific trio to again deliver as they aim to win their eighth Euroleague crown. They are expected to get support from Cory Higgins, Kyle Hines, Othello Hunter and Nikita Kurbanov. CSKA have won their last six games in all competitions. Efes, meanwhile, dominated domestic rivals Fenerbahce 92-73 in the other semi-final to reach the championship game for the first time ever. Shane Larkin led the Turkish side with 30 points, seven rebounds and seven assists while Vasilije Micic added 25. Head coach Ergin Ataman also got quality minutes from veterans James Anderson (10 points) and Bryant Dunston (9 points, 10 rebounds). Larkin and Micic are both eager to duplicate their feats in the semi-finals and lead Efes to their maiden title. Also out to impress in this winner-take-all duel are Rodrigue Beaubois, Krunoslav Simon and big men Adrien Moerman, Brock Motum and Tibor Pleiss. Efes have also won their last six games in all competitions. CSKA won both meetings against Efes in the regular season and have won eight in a row in the series. The Russian giants cruised to a 102-83 win in Moscow in Round 14 and secured an 80-78 triumph in their rematch in Istanbul in Round 27. Efes last defeated CSKA in February 2013 in Istanbul. We expect CSKA to emerge as Euroleague champions this season.
