It literally changed as I entered my bet in. Maybe an injury  but the total just dropped to 126.5 for the full game. The actual TT is at 68.5 which I obviously like even more..

It looks like a very good call Aussie. Personally I got Spain -7.5HT

It should be won, Current line is 134.5 and depends on how it goes to hT i might take an Over half time

Its crazy sometimes the Euroball, Spain score 27 in 10 mins and now they haven't scored in 4.5 mins.. 

She is a great player but not sure she would make the journey to the WNBA because the money is just not worth it. She can stay in Europe, make the cash in Russia just like Griner and Taurasi and live comfortably and go back to Spain to rest and see family whenever she wants. Great lifestyle for her. 

Nice hit buddy on Spain 1H ATS.. Easy winner.

It's so pathetic to look at spain's game... Is it one of the best teams in europe? 20 points in two quarters? 

This is not basketball

Basketball can be a strange sport at times. Spain scored 27 in the 1Q and then follow it up with 19 points in almost 20 mins of basketball. Will take that loss as a lesson, not to back the Spanish to score points for the entire game. 2-1 tonight, happy with that. Back for the next round of games which should be in 2 days time I think..

Completely agree Chignix. Its crazy some of these totals when you compare it to the WNBA. Even the Aussie girl league here in Australia has similar totals to WNBA. Its just the way the European countries and their domestic leagues play basketball.

You know, Aussie, I always thought that basketball is about making baskets, but when I look at european women's games it's about something else, but not making baskets... 

I am from europe and respect european men basketball (however for betting and watching I prefer usa basketball  ) but women game is something extraterrestial 

Spains makes 27 points in one quater and the 28 points in 26 minutes....

Hahaha, i was thinking the same thing. To win games, you need to score and put the ball into the basket. It doesn't add up though, the actual games during the group qualifiers were high scoring (unless blowout sometimes) and its like they all start to play poorly when it comes to the actual tournament. It must be hard for them to adapt for the players that play in both the WNBA and the European countries because its such a difference.

It also doesn't help they are shooting under 50% from the free throw line either.. Since that 1Q, then have gone 12 from 38 shots from the field which is just out of this world.. Wouldn't like to be on Spain -11.5 right now either as the backdoor cover is definitely possible.

I try to understand how it's possible to play all season i europe (domestic+european cups) than go  to wnba and to national team. Some girls don's have any holidays... So logic says, that you can't ask girl to play in high level 12 month a year.

Yep, those missed free throws are going to be the killer with this TT over. 7 from 15 attempts.. WOW!!! 

Amazing!!!!!

I agree Chignix, they have to chase the money around the world because their pay is not as good as the men and they would eventually burn themselves out with all the training, traveling and playing. It would be a very tough job, especially being away from family as well.

Watching this France - Slovakia.
SVK has bad % but they really can't against French defense they physically much better than them. France hasn't led any game at HT by thi sdifference and they seem like Spain before to have stepped up.
