Tofaş Bursa vs Zenit St. Petersburg Preview

Neither side have set the world alight on the European stage but at least one of Tofaş Bursa or Zenit St. Petersburg will have the chance to make an impact in the playoffs. This is because group D is finely poised with no one assured of a top-four place just yet, with all to play for. The home side are more susceptible to danger sitting in fifth place in the group and a dismal run of form is doing little to aid their cause. However, Zenit sit just one place higher in fourth and know that defeat could change everything. A win is the only thing that matters for these two as their EuroCup odds hang on a knife edge.

Tofaş Bursa vs Zenit St. Petersburg Prediction

We simply have to go with the form book in this one and for Tofaş Bursa, it is simply miserable. Four straight losses in a row in all competitions and three defeats in a row in the EuroCup have seen head coach Orhun Ene’s side play their way seemingly out of contention with their Russian opponents set to pounce. Zenit come into the game after victory last time out in the EuroCup and as highlighted in our best EuroCup betting previews, it is a critical boost to any side. This makes the Russians one of our best EuroCup betting tips to get the job done and seriously dent Bursa’s progression hopes.

Tofaş Bursa vs Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

Zenit’s form may not be incredible right now, but as highlighted above, it is far superior to their opponents who have lost their last two games on home soil. Two wins in their last four is unremarkable at best but does give head coach Vasily Karasev a boost of confidence that his side will get the job done. Coupled with this is that the Russians have already beaten their Turkish opponents once this season in the EuroCup. A narrow two-point victory ensued in St. Petersburg in November and since then, both teams have gone in completely different directions with Zenit using it as a platform to build and Bursa seeing it as the start of a disappointing collapse. The Russians may be the away side, but they have just enough in the tank to get over the line and further enhance their playoff hopes. Energybet offer one of the best outright match EuroCup betting odds in this game making them too irresistible to pass up this boxing day.

The game is pretty much all or nothing for the home side and that will increase the urgency to score points early on. As we have seen this season, Zenit react well to that kind of pressure and will match them blow for blow. This is highlighted by the fact that the last time the sides met, 166 points were scored. To add further weight to this argument, both sides have been scoring high of late with Tofaş averaging 82 points per game in their last ten and Zenit pushing on even higher with an average of 88 in the same period of games. That essentially means the game is trending for a 170 score and leaves nine points as a bank of insurance. SunBets’ over market was one of the best for this game and their over 160.5 is a nice pre-New Year present.
