Upcoming Predictions for Basketball
At the beginning of this week, "Parma" met with "Zenit" and lost in St. Petersburg with a difference of five points 84:89. The Permians played successfully in the final quarter and the St. Petersburgers - in the middle quarters. We expected high performance from Xavi Pascual's guys and correctly predicted their individual total.
As part of the guests, we will note the duet of Lithuanian legionaries Juskevicius and Zukauskas. Both Baltic players scored 22 points each. Kazys Maksvytis's team is in ninth place.
The open winning streak of "Lokomotiv" includes three matches. It is worth noting that the Krasnodar team won twice without a tangible advantage. "Parma" fought desperately against the stronger "Zenit" and "Zielona Gora". We expect that the underdog will not flinch in front of the favorite, but will fight and not lose with a double difference.
It is a fact that the Kuban team often practices effective basketball. The match with "Parma" is a rehearsal before the quarter-finals of the EuroCup. In our opinion, the hosts will save their energy before the responsible duel with UNICS.
Our forecast is that "Parma" will win with a handicap (+6.5) points with odds of 2.02 on 1xbet.
