Zenit vs Asvel Basket (By: Clinch)
This is surely a high line but if Zenit will play like they usually do and can then they should go over it. Lyon defense is obviously not working like before, when at home their opponents could not reach 70 points, just like Zenit in the first game but in last two games both Partizan and Reims could have or did reach 80 points. So on the road I will add 7-10 points more to that especially against offensive team like Zenit which went over this line in their last game in Valencia, and Valencia defense is just fine.
Also Lyon is second and can't be first in the group even if they win this game since they lost with larger number of points at Valencia. I don't expect much hustle from Lyon at this one and focusing on their next games. I believe they will play just like Zenit plays as a training game and than this should go over. Even if the situation is not like this, the game tempo usually is completely different from the first game between the two opponents. In the first game there were not many points so in this one I see many of them, just my betting experience over the years. One example is Bamberg - Fuenlabrada games, in the first meeting it was 88:89 and in second 65:75. And Zenit needs to win the game to go through the group.
