2023 EuroLeague Final Odds, Time, and Prediction for Olympiacos vs Real Madrid
The 2023 EuroLeague Final is set to take place on Sunday, May 21, at the Zalgirio Arena in Kaunas, Lithuania. Olympiacos, who finished top of the EuroLeague table in the regular season with a record of 24-10, will face off against Real Madrid. Oddsmakers have Olympiacos as favorites to win, but Real Madrid has already staged many upsets this year, so anything can happen.
Olympiacos has had a fantastic season, with their forward Aleksandar Vezenkov winning the MVP prize for the 2022-23 season. His teammates, including Kostas Papanikolaou, Kostas Sloukas, Shaquielle Mckissic, and Moustapha Fall, have also been performing well. They struggled somewhat against Fenerbahce in the playoffs but eventually won 3-2 to book their ticket to the EuroLeague Final 4. In the semifinal, they easily defeated Monaco 76-62.
Real Madrid comes into the final as underdogs, but they are not fazed by this. They just staged a big upset in the semifinal against Barcelona, winning 78-66 despite being +215 underdogs. However, they have not been too convincing in the 2023 postseason, struggling in their playoff series against Partizan Belgrade.
Despite Real Madrid’s recent upset against Barcelona, we predict that Olympiacos will win and cover the spread on Sunday. While Olympiacos may not seem superior player-for-player, they have been functioning great as a collective and just need one more big push to end their wonderful campaign in style.
