Argentina has 4 NBA players and the USA could be looking ahead to Spain

my feeling is to take the points as well...


in general, i think the USA will struggle to cover against Brazil, Spain and Argentina... and they should wipe the floor and cover against most other teams...

the look-ahead factor is a good point, nbafan88...

Argentina +27.5, no doubt. 

Russia is pretty good as well. They just wiped Lithuania like USA wiped Great Britain.

Anybody know who won Poland v China? Didn't catch the end of the game, I was watching Russia v Lithuania.

Anyone have thoughts on the total?

I wouldn't be surprised to see a 100-80 type game...I think Argentina will score but not have the defensive presence to stop the USA

Argentina seems too easy here. Other than Prignoni and Manu, who else is gonna bring the ball up against USA backcourt pressure? Manu isn't THAT great of a ball handler against man pressure, so basically its all gonna be on Prignoni, who has never played against this level of high-athlete competition that he will see with the USA defenders.

I'm leaning strongly to USA minus the points here. Lack of ballhandling ability on Argentina spells turnovers, and USA turnovers are automatic points.

I have no idea how the USA doesn't score at least 100 today. Scola, Nocioni, Ginobili, Prignoni, Delfino -- none are great defenders although Nocioni and Scola are at least crafty defenders. Either way, no one on Argentina will be able to come close to remotely stopping ball penetration.

Sportsbook has -26 183
Betus has -26.5 -120 and 184 -120
Bovada has -28.5 184
BetCRIS has -26 and 183

I think this game will be too close to 26, so I will stay away from the line. For those doubting TUSA because of Argentinas talent or the look ahead to Spain, remember that Barcelona is where the 92 DT started it and Kobe set the bar for LBJ and the young guns to rise to the occasion. And why would this team "overlook" anyone, Coach K is the biggest hard behind in the group and won't let that happen. 

The total of 183 is inflated because TUSA score 118 last game. Defense is physical in international ball and no one one the court guards the ball like CP3, tenacious. 

Take the UNDER 184 and enjoy TUSA's dominance.

this game is definitely over!  US is gonna have this covered by halftime, in all likelihood... US came to play...

at least if you're gonna lose a game, might as well lose it in the first 3 minutes...

Bookmaker isn't offering a HT line... wish i could take USA and get a nice middle... hopefully it won't get close to 28.5 at this point... probably will, though...

can't believe Argentina was able to weather that early 3-point barrage... that was ridiculous!

i think vegas are gonna inflate all of usa games and you have to pick the good foreign teams EVERY TIME the 28 was a gift the GOOD world teams have to much pride and wont let themselves get blown out.  If usa was playing great britian or china once they were up 17-3 those teams would of given up but not argentina as you see here.

I think the line for the brazil game will be -20 and i will POUND spain cause the usa will have to rely on their 3 point game which they arent very good at cause with spains front line they wont beable to get to many easy buckets
