Zenit St. Petersburg vs Valencia Basket Prediction
Both of these teams are in a good form recently and have been scoring very well. They have a quite high percentage in shooting this season and especially from the 3-point range as we can see in their statistics.
We believe they will both take their chances of shooting from outside and that will result in a high-scoring game if they can sustain their high shooting percentage.
We predict over 155.5 total points in this game.
