Canada vs Lithuania (-6.5) O/U 163.5

Lithuania scored the biggest blowout in the first round of game crushing Senegal by 54 points. They dominated on both sides of the floor shooting 53.2% from the floor and holding Senegal to only 28.6% shooting. Domantas Sabonis and Jonas Valanciunas each had 13 points and combined for 20 rebounds and each should be rested for this game, as neither played over 21 minutes.

Canada put up 92 points in their opening game facing Australia, but their defense was bad allowing the Aussies to score 108 points and shoot 58.2% from the floor. Canada needs to play better D in this game and finish better, as they were outscored 32-15 in the 4th quarter. Corey Joseph led the team with 16 points and Melvin Ejim, who was only 3/9 from the floor and missed six of his seven 3-pointers, led the team with seven rebounds. No other player had more than three rebounds and hitting the glass will be key for Canada facing a great frontcourt of Lithuania.

Lithuania will come out big in this game in the paint and be too much for Canada to handle and will win and cover moving to 2-0 in group play.

Greece (-12) vs Brazil O/U 158.5

Greece had no problem in their opener beating Montenegro by 25 points and holding them to only 60 points. Their D was stifling holding Montenegro to only 34.3% shooting and they outscored them 42-16 in the first half. Reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo only had 10 points to go along with eight boards only playing a little more than 15 minutes and reserves Georgios Printezis and Georgios Papagiannis combined for 31 points in the blowout win.

Greece’s defense may be tested more in this game facing Brazil, who put up 102 points in their opening win over New Zealand. However, they only shot 37.8% from the floor and have to shoot the pill better in this game. Veteran Leandrinho Barbosa came off the bench to lead Brazil with 22 points and reserve Cristiano Felicio had 13 boards and eight offensive boards.

Can Brazil get it done in the scoring department facing the Greek Freak and the great Greece defense? No. Greece will dominate this game on the defensive end of the floor and score big as well, as they will easily win and cover taking control of Group F.

Turkey vs USA (-22) O/U 175

Team USA easily beat Czech Republic in their opening game but did not cover the big spread. Guards Donovan Mitchell and Kemba Walker combined for 30 points and the Yanks held the Czechs to a FG of only 40.6%.

Turkey beat Japan by 21 points in their opener holding them to a FG% of 38.5%. One player the Americans have to worry about is Milwaukee Bucks’ big man Ersan Ilyasova, who had 19 points and 10 boards in the win over Japan. He led four players in double figures in the game and they have to slow the pace of this game.

Team USA did not have the best shooting game facing Czech Republic failing to shoot over 50% from the floor. They will play much better on offense in this game and their frontcourt will keep Ilyasova and company from dominating the paint. The Americans will win this game and cover the spread moving to 2-0 in group play.
