Baskonia vs Bayern Munich – game predictions

Baskonia is the last Spanish champion not named Real Madrid or Barcelona and has high goals this season in the EuroLeague. Beating Bayern is something that was in the season’s plans of this team.

Prediction 1: Baskonia to win @ 11/20 (1.55)

Baskonia is an excellent home team playing in front of the packed arena in Vitoria. They are playing fluid basketball with many passing and outside shooting which will be a huge problem for the visitors. Bayern is still trying to find their identity after changing the head coach and multiple players in the roster. At the moment, Baskonia is much better team and they will show that on the court from the tip-off.

Prediction 2: Markus Howard over 16.5 points @ 17/20 (1.85)

Markus Howard is a born-scorer and only his height, or the lack of it, stood on his way of becoming a legit NBA player. Still, the American found his home in Vitoria and was named into the All-ACB First team last year after leading the league in three-point percentage. However, Howard had a poor start of the EuroLeague season as he scored a total of 15 points in the first two games, shooting only 2 of 15 from deep. Knowing how compettive this guy is, he will step his game up against Bayern and prove that he is an elite scorer.

Is Baskonia a Playoff bound?

Baskonia has been a legit team in the competition for years now and no team can be secured when visiting Vitoria. They were close to beating the defending EuroLeague champion Real Madrid in the season opener but despite the loss, they proved they can compete against the best teams in the competition. If they keep playing like they do, and stay healthy, Baskonia may be a Playoff lock this season.

Baskonia news, injuries, and starting lineups

Baskonia split the first two games of the season, and is hoping to win their first home game of the season. They are a nice mix of young and experience players and they have shown a competitive spirit that looks very promising. Baskonia has 4 wins in the last 5 games overall and is coming off an 85-80 road win over Zaragoza in the last round of the ACB league.

Bayern Munich news, injuries, and starting lineups

Bayern Munch had a disappointing season both in the EuroLeague and the BBL last year. The team’s GM Marko Pesic decided to replace Andrea Trinchieri with the former Real Madrid coach, Pablo Laso. Singing Serge Ibaka, one of the best shot blockers in the NBA in the past decade, may be the move that will lift the team this season. Bayern won 3 of the last 5 games and travels to Spain after a 101-73 won over Oldenburg in the German Cup.
