28-02-2017 18:00 BST - Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar v Zenit St Petersburg - Eurocup Betting Tips
This EuroCup quarter-final tie is a game that pits an offensive side up against a team with a fantastic defensive record. It is the away side that carries the strong offensive capabilities so we could be in line for an open game in this clash, even though it is the first in a best of 3 round-up.
When it comes to season records, Zenit have a slight edge. The team from St Petersburg holds a 9-5 record, although this is down to their strength in the regular season. Zenit were 6-2 in the regular season but only 3-3 in the Top 16, which means that their most recent form in the EuroCup hasn’t been too impressive. Lokomotiv have an 8-6 record but with a 3-5 record in the regular season and a 5-1 record in the Top 16, it may be that the team from Krasnodar is peaking at the right time of the season.
Lokomotiv’s strong showing in the Top 16 was down to their defence, only allowing 70.7 points per game. Taylor Rochestie is the key player for Lokomotiv so far this season, offering an average of 12.2 points per game but both Mardy Collins and Matt Janning have an average of 11.8 points per game this season.
