2022 Euroleague Basketball Betting Odds

The 2021-22 Euroleague Regular Season, which started September 20 and ran to April 8 is over and eight teams have advanced to the 2022 Euroleague Playoffs which will be tipping off on Tuesday, April 19 with two opening games we will take a look at below.

There are 18 teams in the EuroLeague, but the three Russian teams—CSKA Moscow, BC Khimki, and Zenit Saint Petersburg—were all suspended for Russia’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine this year and the records of the three will likely all be annulled.

CSKA Moscow went 24-10 and would have finished in 2nd place in the EuroLeague and ZSP was 20-14 and would have been the No. 8 seed. BC Khimki was 4-30 and had the worst record in the 34-game 2021-22 EuroLeague Regular Season and -434 PD.

Two of the eight teams in the 2022 EuroLeague Playoffs are No. 1 seed Barcelona (24-10)—a team from Spain and the same club whose Soccer Roster had Lionel Messi not so long ago—and the No. 8 seeded Bayern Munich (21-13), also known for its Soccer club. Those two will meet in Playoff A with Playoff B seeing No. 4 seed Real Madrid (18-10) facing No. 5 seed Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv (17-11) and remember these Won-Loss Records are adjusted with all games involving the three suspended Russian teams now L’s.

In Playoff C, No. 3 seed AX Armani Exchange Milan (18-9) will face No. 6 seed Anadolu Efes Istanbul (16-12) with Playoff D having the No. 2 seed Olympiacos Piraeus (19-9) colliding with the No. 7 seed AS Monaco (15-13) in series that starts on Wednesday.

The four winners of the four First Round best-of-5 series of the 2022 Euroleague Playoffs—from April 19 to May 4—will all advance to the Semifinals and the 2022 EuroLeague Final Four now scheduled to be held at the Štark Arena in Belgrade, Serbia.

The 2022 EuroLeague Final Four will be played on Thursday, May 19 with the 2022 EuroLeague Championship Game being held on Saturday, May 21 at Štark Arena in Belgrade, a new site after the Final Four was moved to Belgrade from Berlin, Germany.

“Euroleague Basketball and AEG agreed to postpone the holding of the Final Four in Berlin, based on the current Pandemic situation and health measures imposed in the German capital,” the EuroLeague said in a statement released earlier this month.

“The decision was taken with the aim of giving EuroLeague fans the most likely opportunity to attend the event on-site while also guaranteeing the participating players access to the Final Four city,” the official EuroLeague statement contended.

“Germany’s health measures, if prolonged, would not allow a large number of fans to attend the Final Four and might even prevent some athletes from participating.”

So Germany’s loss is Serbia’s gain maybe but there are no Serbian teams in these Playoffs and the only German one, Bayern Munich is the No. 8 seed and only made it because the Russian president decided to make all of us part of his silly egomaniacal game it seems.

The EuroLeague is the highest level of professional basketball on the European continent it was founded back in 1958 and has a rich history and became a separate Hoops entity from the FIBA Europe confederation 22 years ago in 2000 when Life was also weird.

This is the 65th season of EuroLeague—second in world popularity behind North America and the USA’s NBA—and the 12th season under Turkish Airlines sponsorship. Both Spanish teams Barcelona and Real Madrid reeled off 9-game Winning Streaks this season.

The club with the most EuroLeague basketball championships (Gold medals) with 10 is Real Madrid with CSKA Moscow second with eight. Anadolu Efes won the 2021 EuroLeague championship, the first-ever for the team and the second-ever for Turkey.

Barça, Olympiacos on a Final Four Collision Course?

The 22nd season of the modern EuroLeague era was another weird one, as after dealing with a Pandemic like all other major professional sports leagues, the league also had to deal with the reality of having to zero the three Russian teams for the actions of one man.

Even with CSKA Moscow out, the three or four to have a legit chance to get to the Final Four and win this thing are the same as we would expect with favorites Barça, defending champions Anadolu Efes, Olympiacos (W8 overall), and AS Monaco (W5 EuroLeague).

FCB (12-2 at Home at Palau Blaugrana) enters as the No. 1 seed and should eliminate Bayern in three or maybe games (FCB 9-4 Road) while Olympiacos BC (13-1 at Home) has been hot lately, almost unbeaten at Home and beat Barça last time the two teams played.

So FC Barcelona Bàsquet has been given respect by the oddsmakers to win the title and the Gold Medal here in the 2022 EuroLeague Playoffs, but defending champions Anadolu Efes Istanbul (+450 to win 2021-22 EuroLeague Championship) may be in the mix again.

The defending champions will face AX Armani Exchange Milano (+450) at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan, Italy in the most evenly matched of the opening Postseason legs this week in a best-of-5 series between two clubs who both made the 2021 EuroLeague Final Four.

AX Armani Exchange Milano features Malcolm Delaney and Shevon Shields and have the Homecourt Advantage here unless they lose Leg 1 or Leg 2 in Pizzaland against Head Coach Ergin Ataman, Shane Larkin, Vasilije Micić, and the defending champions here.

With Home Records so dominant and Road Wins so rare in the 2021-22 EuroLeague Regular Season, the Final Four should be Barcelona, Olympiacos BC (1,122 PF-934 PA at Home), Real Madrid (+450), and Milano who were better this season than Anadolu was.

Fading the Spaniards here and going Greek and Olympiacos (2,222 PF-2,045 PA) to emerge victorious at EuroLeague Final Four at Štark Arena in Belgrade, Serbia in the 2022 EuroLeague Championship Game on Saturday, May 21 (3 pm EDT/2 pm CDT/12 pm PDT).

The Third Place (Bronze Medal) game of the 2022 EuroLeague Final Four between the two losers of Thursday’s two Final Four games will take place three hours earlier on Saturday, April 21 at Štark Arena at 16:00 CEST (12 pm EDT/11 am CDT/10 am PDT).
