Olympic Games 2021 Qualifiers Russia vs Mexico Predictions 6/30/2021


Russia had a 4-2 record in the 2022 Eurobasket Qualifiers and were tied with Team Italy in the first place of Group B. They lost the tie-breaker and ended up second. They were 4-1 in their previous five matches and in their last game they won against Team Estonia with a 75-52 score. They shot better from behind the arc than from the field (47.2% to 41.4%) and held their opponents into just 25% shooting from downtown. They were led in scoring by Evgenii Baburin with 14 points and 5 rebounds. Andrey Vorontsevich added 13 points, 7 rebounds and a team-high 4 assists.  


Dmitrii Kulagin leads the team both in scoring with 16 ppg and in assists made with 7.5 per game. Joel Bolomboy adds 14.5 ppg. 


Russia averaged 76.7 ppg in the 2022 Eurobasket Qualifiers and allowed 67.5 ppg defensively. They had a 42.5% field goal percentage and the second-best 3-point percentage in the whole competition with 40.3%. They were fifth-best in rebounding with 39 and sixth-best in assists made with 19.5.  


This will be the first ever meeting between those two squads in any competition. Both teams have quite underwhelming rosters, missing any player from the NBA. Russia is not the powerhouse it used to be and expect Mexico to take advantage of that and force a closer game than 5 points, and maybe even win the game. Pick Mexico with +4.5 today.
