Basketball is one of the most popular sports to bet on at Tipbet.com, and there are plenty of interesting fixtures – across several competitions – that are taking place this week.

Here is an overview:

EuroLeague

The EuroLeague is the highest level of cross-Europe basketball competition for clubs and features some of the biggest names in the sport, with Real Madrid having won the trophy nine times. Currently it is the Turkish side Fenerbahce that are champions having won their first title last season. The current standings see CSKA Moscow in first place as they have won 17 of their 22 games to this point.

Their remarkable form is shown with their point difference of 220, which is infinitely higher than any of their 15 league opponents. The most important part of the season, of course, is the play-off stage, where the top eight battle it out to claim the championship.

Fixtures take place across Thursday and Friday this week and Tipbet has each covered with a great supply of EuroLeague odds. CSKA host Baskonia Vitoria on Thursday evening and the Russians are heavy 1.18 favourites to bounce back from their 103-99 defeat to Valencia last time out.

Baskonia are currently ninth, and the Spanish club need a win (rated at 4.80 by Tipbet) to keep their play-off hopes alive.

Other fixtures standout, including an all-Spanish clash in Barcelona vs Real Madrid, and Olympiakos hosting Valencia.



NBA

Odds for upcoming fixtures in the NBA will be available here nearer the time. Until then, Tipbet have plenty of season bets that are available to be bet on. Golden State Warriors are 1.50 and most likely to named champions having beaten Cleveland Cavaliers to the honour last season.



Houston Rocks, who currently top the NBA southwest division, are expected to their nearest challengers and are offered at 6.50 currently. As well as outright season bet winners for the NBA, Tipbet allow customers to choose which American team will win each of the divisions. Furthermore, there is the option to choose which conference the winning club will come from, with Western (1.30) most likely ahead of Eastern (3.45) at current.
