Lokomotiv won three victories in the last five meetings, and only once the team left the ice without any points. True, of these three victories, one can only note the game with CSKA, since the other two were won over not the strongest rivals from the Far East (Admiral and Amur).
“Spartak” scored a good move, four wins in five meetings, three of them in a row. So far, the red and white have not coped with only the obvious favorite of SKA, but they were able to defeat Salavat Yulaev and the strong Avtomobilist and Torpedo.
This season the teams met twice and both times Lokomotiv won – 4: 2 and 2: 1 (b).
Loko is considered a favorite by the bookmakers and the odds are 1.68 for his victory in regular time, and 4.32 for Spartak.
Total bet and result
However, it seems to us that the bookmakers completely underestimate the red and white. This team has made significant progress in recent months and is considered a strong middle peasant who can take points from stronger opponents.
Even if you look at the head-to-head confrontations, Loko won against Spartak in regulation time just once in the last five matches. Most often these are difficult wins in overtime or shootout.
Yaroslavl over the past five meetings, only outsiders from the East have confidently run, but with more or less equal rivals they have always experienced problems.
Double outcome: Spartak will not lose in regulation time, and the total total will be over 1.5 with odds of 2.26.
