Prediction and betting tips

Fenerbahce look stronger than their next rival. They lead the 2022-23 EuroLeague with 10 victories and two losses. Of course, these two lost games were against Barcelona and Real Madrid, but they beat Anadolu Efes by nine points in the fifth round. Also, Fenerbahce have won six of the last eight H2H matches against Olympiacos and one out of two lost games was not an official match.

Despite the fact that Olympiacos has geniuses like Sasha Vezenkov or Kostas Sloukas on its roster, I believe that they will not destroy Fenerbahce in this game. Asian handicap (+5.5) points on Fenerbahce looks safe.

Betting prediction: Asian handicap (+5.5) points on Fenerbahce

Odds: 1.90 (-111 American; 9/10 Fractional)
