24/02/2016 17:00 – Nizhny Novgorod v Zenit St. Petersburg – Betting Tips
This is an all-Russian affair in the Eurocup Last 16s and the away team has the much more convincing record coming into this game. That doesn’t always translate into results but the home side knows that they face a tough challenge in this game.
Nizhny will place some confidence in the fact that they know how to score points. The team has notched up an average of 81.7 points this season, a record that fares well against Zenit who have a scoring record of 79.8 this season. There is not a lot in it but the slight edge may pay off for Nizhny. However, the hosts know that they will have to improve their defensive record if they are serious about pushing through to the next stage of the tournament. With a 5-3 home record, Nizhny have pleased their fans this season and they’ll believe they can do so again this week.

Zenit have already triumphed in Nizhny this season
The two teams have already clashed on domestic duties this season and this will be one reason why Zenit will feel confident in this game. Nizhny were at home but the away team triumphed by a score of 84-88. A similar result would leave Zenit in a great position for the home leg. However, while Zenit showed great strength in bouncing back from a difficult position in this game, the fact that it was a close game will stick in their mind. They bounced through after a great showing from Victor Rudd, with 22 points and 13 rebounds, and they may need a similar stellar performance to get a positive result this week.
The bookmakers think the home team will just have the edge in this game but it is shaping up to be a close run thing. You should look at taking Zenit St Petersburg at -2, at odds of 1.90 for this game. When it comes to the Over/Under market, you should look to go OVER 164.0, which you can find at odds of 1.90 for the all-Russian affair in the Eurocup Last 16. Bet Now!
