Estonia vs Russia prediction comes ahead of the clash between the two sides in the Eurobasket qualifications on Saturday, 28th November 2020, at Saku Suurhall in Tallinn. Let us take a look at the match preview and odds as we try to provide the best betting tips for this tie.

Estonia vs Russia Preview

Estonia are 2nd on the table of this group with one win from two matches. They won 81-72 vs North Macedonia and lost 87-81 against Italia.

Jukka Toijala, Estonia head coach, called a very interesting squad for these qualifications. The leader on the floor should be Siim-Sander Vene, Fuenlabrada’s small forward, who is averaging seven points per game in the ACB league this season. Also, in the team is Kregor Hermet, young power forward who is playing for Kalev/Cramo this season). He is averaging 12 points per game in the VTB League.

This Estonian squad doesn’t have enough quality, but they can progress to the next phase of the Eurobasket qualifications because the North Macedonian team is probably even worse.

Russia are 3rd on the table at the moment with also a 1-1 w/l record. They won 77-67 vs North Macedonia and lost 83-64 against Italy.

The Russian squad is slightly better. Their leader should be Vitaliy Fridzon, who is 35 years old but can still produce a good basketball level from time to time. Russian best player is Dmitrii Kulagin, who is averaging nine points per game this season for Lokomotiv Kuban in the VTB League.

Russia should be one of the best ten teams in Europe when their squad is complete, so I expect them to find a way to qualify for the Eurobasket.

Estonia vs Russia Betting Tips

It is hard for both teams to play without their best players, but Russia with even this squad should be too good for the modest Estonian squad. Also, they should cover AH -2.5 spread.
