Betting on road teams is risky but also rewarding.

Can Panathinaikos, Olympiacos and ALBA Berlin make a splash on the road? It’s possible and it also pays well

Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv – Panathinaikos OPAP U 166.5 / 1.71

Tel Aviv is always a difficult home court for any opponent no matter how good or bad Maccabi is. And currently, Maccabi has been great. On the other hand, Panathinaikos have achieved crucial victories at this gym in recent seasons, but things are different this year. Because of the importance of the match and the philosophy of Maccabi coach Giannis Sfairopoulos, defense and control of the pace will play a big role in the outcome. It’s very hard to pick a winner, but it’s safe to assume that the under 166.5 overall is a solid bet.

Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade – Olympiacos Piraeus 2 / 1.83

In this particular match, Olympiacos has to quality to get the win, but Zvezda at home is always stronger. While the odds can be considered shared, the Greek team can be considered marginally the favorite. Also, Olympiacos might be tired by the overtime against Khimki. However, this is also a “must-win” game for Olympiacos in order to stay close to the playoffs, so the motivation will be there and Zvezda is simply not playing well recently.

LDLC ASVEL – ALBA Berlin 2 / 2.75

ALBA is a much better team than its record suggests. And despite ASVEL being strong at home, this is a game that ALBA can win, because they always play their game no matter the opponent. And above everything else, the 2.75 is huge and worthy of our attention. And also there’s a safer bet with a +5.5 handicap for ALBA at 1.71.

Speaking about odds, while Khimki is the favorite against Zalgiris Kaunas, the road win at 3.30 also is worthy of attention, considering the wear and tear of Khimki from the road defeat at Piraeus to Olympiacos. Milan’s victory over CSKA Moscow is also an interesting bet, considering also the +4.5 handicap at 1.71.
