Panathinaikos vs Maccabi Tel Aviv – game predictions

Panathinaikos won the last two games against Maccabi Tel Aviv and they are favourites to make it three in a row.

Prediction 1: Panathinaikos to win @ 1/2 (1.50)

It’s been a couple of tough weeks for Maccabi Tel Aviv as they are facing many uncertainties given the situation in Israel. They will play the second road game in only three days which is definitely not easy. Panathinaikos, on the other hand, is back at home trying to bounce back after a loss to Fenerbahce. They have excellent roster with many players who are capable to step up in every single game. With the support of the fans, Panathinaikos will win this pretty easily at the OAKA.

Prediction 2: Jerian Grant over 8.5 points @ 17/20 (1.85)

Grant is one of many former NBA players on the Panathinaikos roster. He has been very valuable for the team as he is a pass-first point guard. He plays around 30 minutes per game for the Greek team but averages only 8.3 points per game. His efficiency is solid, and the only reason for the low-scoring is the number of attempts he takes. It is clear that Grant will have to step up in that aspect of the game which will be exactly what he will do in this game and score over 8.5 points.

What’s next for Maccabi Tel Aviv?

Maccabi Tel Aviv is one of the best teams in the EuroLeague history and they seemed like a team that can get back among the top 4 teams this season. Their roster looks powerful but with all the things happening in Israel, the team is facing big problems out of the court. There is a huge possibility for players to leave the team making this season very uncertain for the team.

Panathinaikos news, injuries, and starting lineups

Panathinaikos made a complete rebuild in the off-season, and the biggest move was bringing head coach Ergen Ataman. He won two EuroLeague titles in the last three years with Anadolu Efes, and the team believe he can transfer the success to Athens. Panathinaikos signed Mathias Lessort, who was named to the All-EuroLeague First Team last year. They also singed Luka Vildoza, Juancho Hernangomez, Kyle Guy, and Kostas Sloukas. Still, they are coming off a tough loss against Fenerbahce and will have to bounce back in front of the home crowd.

Maccabi Tel Aviv news, injuries, and starting lineups

Maccabi Tel Aviv had a great start of the season with a blow out win against the Partizan but things got frightening in the country and they were forced to postpone their home games. That has taken a huge toll on the team defocusing from basketball which has been visable in their last loss to Valencia.
