The "St. Petersburg" club hosted the Russian and European grandees "CSKA" and won a victory with a difference of three points (74:71).

Upcoming Predictions for Basketball
On the last winter day, "Khimki" suffered another, eighth defeat in the VTB United League. In a dramatic and exciting duel, they lost to "Zielena Gora" (94:99). The Poles surpassed the Russians in the first quarter (26:21) and the second half (53:42). Alexey Shved's 34 points did not help "Khimki".
Andrey Maltsev's team rounds out the eight of the playoffs. In the Euroleague, on the contrary, the "Blue-Yellows" beat "Real" and lost to "Alba".
"Khimki" has serious game and staffing problems. "Khimki" played against "Alba" with ten men against veterans Monya, Vyaltsev and Ponkrashov. "Zenit" does not have such difficulties and is confidently playing not only in the VTB United League, but also in the Euroleague. We expect that the strike trio Shved, Mickey, McCollum of "Blue-yellows" will have a hand in breaking through TB (159.5). Peter is the favorite and the first part of the combined bet is the home win.
Our prediction is that "Zenit" will win with total over (165.5) points with odds of 1.88 on 1xbet.
