Upcoming Predictions for Basketball
"Zenit" alone tops the list of VTB League clubs. "Zenit" has 14 victories, two more than UNICS, and four more than CSKA. The club from the northern capital has only one defeat. Last Sunday, St. Petersburg team could easily beat "Tsmoki". The game in Minsk was held with the overwhelming advantage of Xavi Pascual’s basketball players. The final score on the scoreboard was 73:99.
The Minskers gave all quarters to the opponent. Billy Baron was singled out (20 points) among the players of the favorite.
UNICS and "Zenit" are approaching the head-to-head confrontation in a similar shape. In the current season, the St. Petersburg team has a more powerful roster than the Kazan team. Xavi Pascual's guys have been enchanting in the Euroleague for a long time. They are now having a predictable decline in the continental arena. In the VTB League, opponents are more modest. We believe that the guests' white streak will last until the next match day.
Our prediction is that "Zenit" will win with a handicap (-1.5) with odds of 1.93 on 1xbet.
