Lokomotiv Kuban vs Rytas Betting Tips
Lokomotiv Kuban and Rytas head into the sixth round of EuroCup regular season with disappointing defeats in their last game, with Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar lost a close game to Tofas Bursa and Rytas succumbed to Reyer Venezia, despite an amazing performance by Martynas Echodas. Johnny O’Bryant secured a game-high of 18 points for the Lokomotiv, while Martynas Echodas scored 26 points and six rebounds for Rytas.
Both teams are in a struggling run of form this season, with Rytas registered only one win in five EuroCup games and Kuban managed to get two wins of their last five games. Lokomotiv started the EuroCup season strongly and they were in the second spot for quite some time, winning two of their first three games. Since then, their form has petered out. They are currently in 4th place, and woefully out of form. Rytas Vilnius, on the other hand, opened this season with a win against Lokomotiv, but the club faltered badly in the next four games.
Kuban and Vilnius have remained inconsistent this season and therefore it will be difficult to predict the outcome of this game. Rytas are undoubtedly a dangerous side on their day, but considering the past performances and scoring abilities we predict Lokomotiv Kuban will register a victory here.
Prediction: Lokomotiv Kuban To Win
Galatasaray vs Trento Prediction
Galatasaray Doga Sigorta enters into this game with a road win over Asseco Arka Gdynia (83-78), while Dolomiti Energia Trento faced a humiliating 93-74 defeat against Unicaja Malaga. Greg Whittington lead the Galatasaray with 13 points and eight rebounds, Zach Auguste added 16 points, and Tai Webster scored 14. Alessandro Gentile scored 18 points for the Trento side.
Galatasaray are in superb form this season and have lost just one game of their last five games. Trento, meanwhile, have remained inconsistent in their last five games having won 2 games and lost 3. Galatasaray came to this contest as clear favorites, despite dropping their third game to Unicaja last month. Galatasaray have already defeated Trento in their first game this season and we expect their winning trend will continue here.
Prediction: Galatasaray To Win
