Bars Kazan vs. Metallurg Magnitogorsk (Russia. KHL)
Bars has had a very long losing streak, having already lost the last six games. And the team’s fixtures are not easy ahead.
Metallurg has been one of the strongest teams in the KHL for long, and the club also looks like one of the favorites for the Gagarin Cup this season. The club is in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference, with a three-game winning streak.
Of course, any unsuccessful streak eventually ends, but we do not think Bars can do this today, since the opponent is too dangerous.
Our prediction: Metallurg Magnitogorsk to win. We recommend adding the “2 Win” bet to your express, odds 3.03
SKA St. Petersburg vs. Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg (Russia. KHL)
SKA rarely loses at home, but the St. Petersburg club has made much more mistakes lately. However, SKA still scores a lot (68 goals in 19 matches - the best result in both conferences).
Avtomobilist Yekaterinburg is just in second place in the league in terms of goals scored - 67 in 19 games. The team has a high conversion in the power play, and the club is now in good shape.
Of course, it will be difficult for Avtomobilist to take points from SKA on the road, but there are still chances. Both teams show high production in face-to-face meetings, so we expect at least 5 goals today.
Our prediction: at least 5 goals to be scored. We recommend adding the “Over 5” bet to your express, odds 1.75
