Euroleague Zenit Petersburg vs Bayern Picks, Spread and Prediction

Two of the five best squads currently in Euroleague Basketball are clashing in the 19th round of action, when the German Bayern Munich (11-7), are hosting the Russian Zenit St. Petersburg (11-5). The hosts have lost their rhythm lately and are up and down since December 11th. On the other hand, the guests are hot again, having lost only once in their last five games.

Date/Time: 02-13-2021, 13:30 EDT Spread: Bayern -3 Total: +150.5

Bayern (11-7) are tied for 5th in the league. In their last game they lost on the road by Olympiacos, 84-82, not beating the odds. Vladimir Lucic leads the team in scoring with 14.4 ppg, adding 4.9 rebounds per game. Zenit (11-5) are 4th in the league and are coming off a road win against Panathinaikos, 77-89, beating the odds. Kevin Pangos leads the team both in scoring with 11.6 ppg and in assists made with 6.4 per game.

In the first round of this season, Zenit won at home by 4 points. In last season’s Munich game, Bayern won by 8. Bayern lead Zenit 4-3 all-time in Euroleague and are 2-1 at home. They are 7-2 at home this season, while Zenit are the best road team with 8-2. The hosts have four consecutive home wins, while the guests have won back-to-back on the road. Bayern are better offensively (79.6 to 76.6 ppg), while Zenit have the best defense, allowing 72.9 ppg to Bayern’s third-best of 76.3.

I’m going to pick Bayern with -3 today. They have been very good at home lately and in their previous home game they won easily against Barcelona. Zenit’s previous two road victories have been against the sixth and second-worse teams in the league.
