    USA not playing , to be honest do not know why . I saw them playing at 2019 FIBA World Cup . They won Gold there but there is not such a difference in skill level as in regular basketball . Serbian players got normal league 3x3 so they are practising whole year long.


    You can check players here

    One player was in Wolves for a while .

    Poland won against Latvia in Olympics qualifier semifinals game . I think Latvia is much better team , but those games are so quick , few 2 pointers and you can easilly win . It could be good strategy to look for those upsets

    Have Poland by 3 points here... Lines are - 120 so you do have to find upsets

    I took Nigeria to medal at +400. While they are all quite young, no other country has as many NBA players (8) except the US team. A lot of talent there if they can put it together.

    I also like Nigeria +7.5 against Australia and Argentina +5.5 against Slovenia.

    Good Luck, sinker. My experience is that good research can make Tournaments like this beatable.

    Oddsmaker has a hard time setting a razor-sharp line. In the Olympics, I'd keep an eye on how tired the top NBA players look. They might say they're excited but they really want to take a nap.

    italy and germany both teams that suprisingly advanced from qualifiers . I see bigger potential in italy , leaning slightly towards their side .

    Nigeria is an absolute wildcard here . There is potential in players , thats for sure . However I expect poor gameplay and very physical game . The can suprise whenever opponnents fall asleep with rapid runs . Atheltic players all arround

    Last game , USA very sluggish in warm up games . However , I expect much better effort in main tournament . The major factor , usa adding three last call payers in booker , jrue and midletton . They are bringing talent , but who knows how it works with chemistry here . France solid roster . 12 to cover is not an easy task

    The weakness of this US team is inside, but There aren’t any big teams to expose them. France has Go err, but that’s it inside, and he’s never been a good scorer.
