RTD  8-4




BRAZIL +3.5
Brazil is 4-1 in this tournament with their only blemish being a one point loss to the Russians. The better team here is getting points. Brazil has the ability to pound the ball in the paint. I really like the match up. They have one of the most experienced ball handlers in the tournament in Barbossa and probably the best NBA backup Center in Splitter. Argentina's strength is shooting the trey and opposing teams are shooting only 29% ( 23-80 ) from beyond the arc against the Brazilians and this is tops in the tournament. They have big front line that does a great job altering shots.

USA / AUSTRALIA UNDER 189
The pattern here suggest this game will go Under. This probably won't be a popular wager as most bettors will blindly bet this game Over after watching the last 2 USA games. The oddsmakers already know this and that is why this Total is a little inflated. With the Semis and Finals coming up there is no reason why the Americans shouldn't ease up a little. 189 points in a 40 minute is like 228 points in an NBA game. I'll take  my chances with the UNDER.  FINAL SCORE USA 97 AUSTRALIA 73

Not with ya on the Under...I doubt the US even knows how to slow up...in the 2008 quarters the score was 116-85.  Also the US is not nearly as good defensively while the Aussies are about the same.  They both run up-tempo fast break styles and the US has far more athleticism so scoring should be easy for them.  Good luck either way.

Good luck, looks to be another perfect card there. 
I am waiting on for the TUSA game to go over in the first half, so I can grab the inflated second half under (I hope to get UNDER 195 after half).
Do you know the status of Argentina's Prigioni?
My numbers have low totals for Spain/France first half, both teams are giving up about 33 points in the first half. Do you have the same slow start in mind?

It's not because the USA is not good defensively , It's because their not trying. Com'on !!! Their more than capable of defending even with this line up.
I am making this wager from a  numbers perspective. If the ARG/USA TOTAL WAS 185 TWO DAYS AGO THERE IS NO WAY THE AUS/USA LINE SHOULD BE 190. As a matter of fact if this game were being played opening day this total could of easily been in the mid 160's. Do you recall the first two USA totals.
USA VS FRA  ( 166 )
USA VS TUNISIA ( 153.5 )
As you can see the above totals are quite a contrast in comparison  !!!
WERE THE ODDS MAKERS THAT OFF ?????

If the AUS/USA game goes Over in the first half, you'll probably be looking at a much higher total than 195 during 2nd half live wagering.

I am with you on the under 44Dimes.

Here's hoping the new stadium throws off some of the accuracy and the Aussies don't turn the ball over too much and turn it into a track meet.

I expect every team to get a bit "chippy" against USA from now on, so that will be interesting to see how it affects the speed of the games,

I am hoping for USA vs. Russia final rematch of 1972.  It was Soviet Union back then and you know what happened. 

It will give this current USA team an identity and probably mean a lot to Doug Collins who will be calling that game if it comes to that.

Yes the USA team doesn't have to play great defensively and nothing says they are going to play great defense here.  Aussie has some bigs that can give them trouble.  Also, the totals were lower against France and Tunisia cause those teams play a different style.  France has scored 7 pts less per game than the Aussies and Tunisia has scored 18 pts less per game.  That would adjust the over/under and with the way both the US team and Aussies play up tempo I see this going over.

waited until the end and took under 191,just think USA will try to play better defense now and if the Aussies try to run it up and down I dont think they can win that way,3 scorers is what they have,so will know after the F-1/4 how its going to be played,lol.
