Euroleague Play-offs betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Anadolu Efes vs Barcelona Lassa and Real Madrid vs Panathinaikos.

Anadolu Efes vs Barcelona Lassa (18:00 BST on Wednesday) - Play-offs Game 1


Anadolu Efes host Barcelona Lassa in Game 1 of the Euroleague play-offs on Wednesday. Efes placed fourth in the regular season with a 20-10 record, a significant improvement from their woeful 7-23 mark last season. They also earned a home-court edge in the best-of-five phase for the first time this century. Leading Efes in the series are Vasilje Micic, Adrien Moerman, Shane Larkin and Rodrigue Beaubois. Head coach Ergin Ataman will also count on Tibor Pleiss and Krunoslav Simon. Brock Motum and Bryant Dunston are both uncertain in this game. Barcelona, meanwhile, placed fifth with an 18-12 record to reach the play-offs for the first time since 2016. Thomas Heurtel and Ante Tomic will lead the Svetislav Pesic-mentored Spanish powerhouse in this duel. They are expected to get support from Adam Hanga and Kyle Kuric while Kevin Seraphin is uncertain with a knee injury. Efes and Barcelona split their two meetings in the regular season. We expect Efes to win the opener.

Real Madrid vs Panathinaikos(20:15 BST on Wednesday) - Play-offs Game 1


This is the second consecutive season that Real Madrid and Panathinaikos will meet in the play-offs. Los Blancos needed four games to eliminate the Greens in their best-of-five series last season and went on to win their 10th Euroleague crown. Real Madrid placed third behind Fenerbahce and CSKA Moscow in the regular season with a 22-8 record. Out to lead the Spanish giants in their quest to return to the Final Four are Anthony Randolph and Jaycee Carroll but Sergio Llull is doubtful for the entire series due to a leg injury. Other key players for head coach Pablo Laso are Trey Thompkins, Facundo Campazzo and Rudy Fernandez. Panathinaikos, meanwhile, placed sixth overall with a 16-14 slate. Leading the Greens in this match-up are Nick Calathes, Sean Kilpatrick and two-time Euroleague scoring champion Keith Langford. Head coach Rick Pitino will also utilise Deshaun Thomas and big men Ioannis Papapetrou and James Gist in this blockbuster duel. Real Madrid won both meetings against Panathinaikos in the regular season and have taken five in a row in the series. We expect Real Madrid to triumph in Game 1.
