The winners of these games qualify for the Olympics...

Croatia vs. Canada - I hope our girls win, but I like Croatia and will take them on the ML @ (+120). Croatia can score, not sure Canada can keep up...most likely, the closest of the four games.

Czech Rep vs. Japan - The Czechs play good defence and gave up 54, & 51 points their first two games. I'm not that impressed with Japan. I will play UNDER 126 for one unit.

Korea vs. France - Korea plays a fast game, the French do not. I'm going to play OVER 128 for one unit. I think Korea will score a bit, and they do not play great defence.

Argentnia vs. Turkey - Argentina has scored 54 & 51 points in their two games, Turkey has allowed 49 & 53 in their two games. Turkey is hosting this tournament. I like the UNDER 120.5...I think Argentina will struggle to score...

Good Luck.

I'm playing the OV 124 in that Canada/Croatia game...mainly for the same reasons you came up with.  Both teams can score, Croatia will create the pace which should hopefully allow Canada get some easy buckets.

Good call on Croatia as they sneak out a 3pt win.  Unfortunately, I didn't get my over coming up 10pts shy...as Croatia drops an 8pt 3rd quarter...and Canada barely sneaks out 2 seperate 10pt quarters in the 2nd & 4th...should have hit this rather easily...but OH WELL

Thanks....it was a good day 3-1...would have been 4-0 as Argentina had 22 at the half...but Turkey had such a big lead they just traded baskets in the second half....oh well.

Canada is still alive for the last spot, they play Argentina, Korea plays Japan.....no lines yet....I expect Canada to play Korea for the last spot...but we will see.

Korea vs. Japan - Korea (-3) - I must admit, i'm very suprised at this line. I rate Korea much higher than Japan. I know it is a rivalry game, but I just think Korea has more firepower.

Canada vs. Argentina - Canada is favoured by 5.5, total is 115. I think Canada wins, but this could be a slugfest...each team struggles to score....no play for me.

Korea (-3) for two units....Good Luck
