Siberia cannot beat an opponent in regulation time for four games. After the break for the Eurotour, the team had two meetings – a success with Lokomotiv (2: 1OT) and a defeat against SKA (3: 4).
Salavat Yulaev, on the other hand, is gaining points in the last six matches. After a pause, the Ufa team lost to Spartak in shootouts (2: 3), defeated Kunlun (4: 3OT) and Avtomobilist (4: 2).
The teams this season met on the first day of October, and then Siberia won away with a score of 3: 1. It is noteworthy that the last four head-to-head meetings ended with the same result in favor of one or the other team. The odds that the game will end 3: 1 is 15.
The line to win the away match is 1.84. Hosts – 2.01.
Salavat Yulaev have conceded the fewest goals in the KHL so far this season. Siberia, especially at home, is generally a unique team that concedes and scores almost the least in the KHL, consistently gaining points. Salavat Yulaev are good offensively, but even the Finnish offensive troika will have a hard time breaking into the collective, suffocating, cold defense of Siberia.
We believe that the match will go according to the hosts’ scenario and bet on the total under 4.5 with the odds of 1.84.
