Kazakhstan vs. Japan Prediction

Japan travel to Astana to wrap up their road trip against Kazakhstan at Saryarka Velodrome. Three days ago the Akatsuki Five took care of business in Bahrain, while Kazakhstan suffered one of their biggest defeats in history against Australia.

Kazakhstan Team News

We think this shorthanded and demoralized Kazakh team can´t wait for this window to end. Kazakhstan still have solid mathematical chances of reaching the World Cup, but their hopes could take a big hit today when Japan arrive to town.

The main reason for Kazakhstan´s subpar performances is the absence of their two best players, Nikolay Bazhin and naturalized guard Anthony Clemmons. All of their noteworthy results in these qualifiers were achieved with two of them on the floor, so the hosts shouldn´t be disappointed with their 47-point defeat to Australia.

Japan Team News

Japan keep mixing their roster and tactics in every window, but the most important thing is they are winning games. Obviously, in the current window they are playing without their NBA stars, but had no problems disposing Bahrain three days ago(87:74).

Today´s game is a perfect opportunity for another easy win, which would finally bring Japan inside the qualification zone. Unfortunately for Kazakhstan, their key players are unavailable for this matchup, so it could get ugly for them because Japan have put together a B League team with plenty of chemistry that is at least a class above the hosts.

Kazakhstan vs. Japan Prediction

In our opinion, anything but a convincing victory today for the guests would be a massive upset. Kazakhstan are heavily undermanned and lack quality at multiple positions in their starting five, while Japan have a long and quality rotation with a couple of naturalized players.

At the moment, there is a huge gulf in class between these teams so taking Japan to cover the spread is the most optimal option for betting.
