USA men's hoops odds biggest one book has ever seen

Oddsmakers have set the point spread for Team U.S.A.'s men's hoops game against Tunisia Tuesday at a number that has to be considered monstrous by any standard - a whopping 55-points, which is 40 points more than the next highest spread for any of the six games on Tuesday. The game total listed at 164.5.

Just how big is that spread? Sportsbook.com told Covers it is the biggest they've ever seen since coming into the market in 1996. 

Scouting Tunisia

Tunisia lacks a single NBA player on their roster and is coming off a narrow 60-56 loss to Nigeria in their Olympic opener. The Tunisians are the reigning African champions, mostly because of their great size. They feature eight players who stand 6-foot-8 or taller and play a defensive style. Tunisia is led by forward Amine Rzig, who dropped 18 points in the club’s loss to Nigeria.

Scouting U.S.A.

Forward Kevin Durant led the way with 22 points as the Americans cruised to a 98-71 victory over France in their London Games debut. Tony Parker had 10 points for France, a medal contender with six NBA players. However, the 27-point blowout may only be a preview of what’s to come Tuesday. Experts are predicting the most lopsided result of the tournament.

This so called "contest" will be as lopsided as expected. What NBA all-star will want to be tainted for NOT covering the highest BB line EVER posted? Give the points, especially if Coach K cranks up his "D"!!! i say they win by 70+. All these 2nd Dream Team games are going to be fast break dunkfests until finals, maybe semis.......Enjoy all the USA talent on display!!
