CSKA Moscow have better percentages both in field goals (54.8% to 43.3%) and in 3-pointers (54.8% to 30%). Bayern on the other hand are better in boards grabbed (37 to 34), while CSKA are better in dimes made (21 to 16) and both teams commit exactly 10 turnovers per game. Bookmakers give CSKA Moscow a -11.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as they have been struggling lately and Bayern will force a closer game than that.
