Valencia vs Unicaja Prediction
Valencia is in excellent form this year and finished their regular season with a 92-81 home victory over Baskonia. The team are Eurocup Champion and grabs a spot in the 2019-20 EuroLeague. Unicaja, on the other hand, headed into the play-off clash with a 72-66 win over Andorra and finished the regular season as the fifth seed in the ACB League table with a 21-13 record.
Valencia has defeated Unicaja in their last three meetings across all competitions. We expect Valencia has an excellent chance of winning the series and they should start the series with a win on their home court. Also, the total anticipated points would be Under 162.5.
Barcelona vs Joventut Badalona Prediction
Barcelona is in a great run of form this season and finished the regular season as the second place by winning against Obradoiro 63-83. The team is in such good shape this season that they won the Copa del Rey for the second year in a row.
Joventut Badalona bounced back impressively this year after finishing fifteenth in Liga Endesa with 12 wins on 34 games last season. This season, the Joventut finished the regular season with a win over Estudiantes and returned to the playoffs after four years of absence. We expect Barcelona would hold home court advantage and are expected to take the lead in the ACB Playoff series.
Real Madrid vs Manresa Prediction
Real Madrid finished first in the regular season and won their last game against the GBC Delteco to secure the first spot in the ACB League playoffs. Manresa, meanwhile, came back strong this season after having missed the playoffs the last three seasons. The team played exceptional basketball this season and thus secured a playoff spot.
Both sides will face third time in the League quarter-final play-off, with the two previous clashes saw Real Madrid winning the game and qualify for the semi-finals. Manresa is undoubtedly a dangerous side on their day, but the team appears too weak for the strong squad Real Madrid here. We expect Madrid will register a straightforward victory here with a fifteen negative handicap points.
