VEF Riga vs Astana Tigers by Robert
VEF at home against Astana.
To my mind, this is the bet of the week. Astana will play away game against VEF. VEF doesn't have any chances of getting to the playoffs in VTB United league while Astana might lose their 5th position because at the moment 6th placed team Krasnye Krylya is leading in the game against Minsk.
▼ If Astana loses and KK wins then Astana will be 6th and will have to play against 3rd placed team.
▼ If Astana wins then they will go up to 4th position but in this case they will meet the same team Krasny Oktabyr.
So, the best scenario for Astana is to win this game. VEF sin't that opponent that should make big troubles for Kazach team. I am pretty sure that Astana do not want to face Triumph in the next round while they can meet against Oktabyr.
Astana has better american players, are great and dynamic in offense while VEF is much weaker than the previous season. VEF seem to have quite decent and good roster but they just can put everything together and this is the reason why they managed to take only 6 wins this season.
To my mind, Astana will be concentrated 100 per cent and this game will be won by double digit margin
