Olympiacos vs. Fenerbahce: Not Your Normal One Versus Eight Match-Up
One versus eight match-ups in the playoffs are usually chalky, with the top seed often making quick work of the lower-seeded team. With Olympiacos and Fenerbahce’s match-up this year, it’s a much different battle.
Both teams are regular stalwarts of success in the EuroLeague. Olympiacos is making the playoffs for the 23rd time in the last 31 years, with their eyes on making their twelfth Final Four. Fenerbahce had a recent streak of five straight Final Four appearances from 2015 to 2019 but hasn’t been back in the playoffs much since then.
This playoff series looks evenly matched from a scoring perspective – the two teams average around the same number of points per game and have nearly equivalent offensive ratings.
Fenerbahce hopes that the regular season match-ups, which Olympiacos dominated, will be an aberration. Fenerbahce only played three games with a full roster this season and was without top scorers Johnathan Motley and Scottie Wilbeikin for the first match-up against Olympiacos. As they say, playoff basketball is a different game.

Monaco vs. Maccabi Tel Aviv: A Battle of Similar Styles
The four-five matchup in the Euroleague gives us Monaco versus Maccabi Tel Aviv, which will be a battle for backcourt supremacy. Maccabi’s backcourt of Lorenzo Brown and Wade Baldwin account for almost two-thirds of their squad’s points on the season through scoring or assists.
On the other side of the court, Monaco boasts three backcourt players averaging double digits in scoring. Fans can expect some high-talent match-ups in the backcourt.
Both teams have home-court records and will make it difficult for road teams to secure victory. Maccabi won 15 out of 17 games at home. Monaco won 13 out of 17 games at home. Monaco has home court advantage in the series – it may prove incredibly valuable.
The teams split the season series 1-1 between each other in the regular season and have nearly equivalent offensive and defensive ratings. Depending on which outcome a bettor is leaning towards, this series should provide a lot of entertainment value with talented players all over the court and an upbeat pace that should deliver some thrilling Euroleague playoff basketball.
