Russian VTB League Unics Kazan vs Khimki M. Picks, Spread and Prediction

Date/Time: 01-17-2020, 07:00 EDT Spread: Khimki M. -2.5 Total: +168.5

Two teams coming off multiple wins face off in the 14th round of the Russian VTB United League, when Khimki Moscow Region (5-5), are hosting Unics Kazan (8-4). The hosts have back-to-back wins after being 1-3 in their previous 4 games. The guests are also coming in hot, having lost only once in their last 6.

Khimki have a 5-5 record and are 8th in the league. In their last game they won Lokomotiv Kuban on the road, 91-102, beating the odds. They are 3-1 in their last 4 home games. Unics have an 8-4 record and are third. In their last game they won Parma Perm on the road, 69-76, beating the odds.

In their previous meeting in the first round of the season, Unics won at home by 7 points. Khimki are 3-2 at home, while Unics are 1-3 on the road. They have won their last 4 meetings at home. Khimki have the third-best offense in the league (87.3 to 82 ppg), while Unics have third-best defense (77.2 to 83.5 ppg).

I’m going to pick Khimki with -2.5 today. They seem to be playing better lately and Unics have been extremely weak on the road this season.

Unics Kazan vs Khimki M. Prediction: Khimki M. -2.5 (-116)
