Spread Pick: Unics Kazan wins with handicap -9.5 at 1.90 Over/Under: Under 161.5 at 1.90
Unics Kazan will be coming into this match on the back of a cruel defeat at the hands of Real Madrid. It was a loss right at the buzzer that condemned Kazan to a loss and a 0-2 record. This is clearly something that Kazan will be keen to rectify and the fact that they are facing up to the other Group A team who have a 0-2 record should go in their favour.
Another thing that Kazan has in their favour is Keith Langford. The player clocked up over 29 minutes of game time against Madrid and he rewarded the coach and team with a return of 23 points. He was by far the key scorer for Kazan, the only other Unics player who scored more than 10 points was James White with 13 points. 6 other players managed to get themselves on the score sheet against Madrid but they all offered meagre points, and this is something that Kazan will be hoping to change against Dinamo. Having a high scoring player is great but ideally, you want most of the team chipping in with as many points as possible.

Sassari have also had a troubled start
Sassari suffered a home defeat to Anadolu in their last game and they also hold a 0-2 record. They have scored more points than Unics Kazan have in the two games but a weaker defence sees Sassari sitting at the foot of Group A thanks to an inferior points difference.
One man that you cannot blame the inferior points difference on is Jerome Dyson who served up 21 points in the loss to the Turkish team. Rakim Sanders also delivered 15 points to the score board, so Sassari have players that can make a difference but whether they have enough of them remains to be seen.
The bookmakers think that Kazan are clear favourites
From the off, the bookmakers definitely think that Kazan will break their duck for the season. Bet365 are offering odds of 1.18 for a Kazan win while Sassari are priced at 5.00. These sort of odds will inevitably have you looking towards the handicap market and even with a -9.5 spread, Kazan seem decent odds at 1.90. The Overs/Under market for the clash is coming in at 1.90 for 161.5 The two games played by the team so far this season would indicate that this is certainly likely, so it may be that this is a sensible bet.
Of course, when teams lose a couple of games, it is natural for them to work on their defence and try and tighten things up. This may lead to a game where there is a bit of a stalemate with two teams who are more frightened to lose as they are designed to win. With this in mind, Kazan should have more about them with respect to opening up their opponents and once the game opens up, there could be plenty of end to end action on offer.
