Khimki – Lokomotiv Kuban: another victory of Khimki
Khimki - Lokomotiv-Kuban. Forecast (odds 2.8) for the VTB United League match (February 8, 2021)
PBC Lokomotiv Kuban
The eventful VTB United League week will begin with the "Khimki" – "Lokomotiv Kuban" duel on February 8. See our forecast below.
"Khimki" played in Perm and won their first victory under the leadership of acting head coach Andrey Maltsev last week. The "Blue-Yellows" played without a number of leading performers (Aleksey Shved, Devin Booker, Janis Timma, Stevan Jovic). The staffing problems of the guests changed the quotes for the match with "Parma". The Permians became the favourites but lost in a bitter struggle (69:72).
In the Moscow Region basketball players, Eric McCallum (20 points) and Jordan Mickey (14 points) took the lead. The hosts are in eighth place (six wins and six losses).

PBC Lokomotiv Kuban
"Lokomotiv Kuban" played unsuccessfully in the last two matches. First, he was defeated by "Zenit" in the VTB United League (85:90), then "Partizan" from Belgrade snatched victory in the key duel TOP16 of the Eurocup (71:69).
The railroad workers had 15 fights in the inner arena. They have nine wins on their assets and six losses on their liabilities. Evgeniy Pashutin's team is in the fourth position.
These clubs intersected on the floor a little over a month ago. At that time, "Khimki" were considered underdogs, but they beat the favourite with (+11). "Khimki" did not play against "Maccabi" this week in the Euroleague. Moscow Region basketball players had extra time for recovery, rest and training. Experienced Anton Ponkrashov has recently joined the "blue-yellows". Andrei Maltsev will play with the main line-up, which is not inferior in name to "Lokomotiv". In our opinion, the owners were underestimated, and we are betting on their winnings, taking into account OT.
Our prediction is that "Khimki" will win the match with odds of 2.8 on 1xbet.
