The event many basketball fans around the world have been waiting for is already here. We are here to help you to find some value in Basketball World Cup betting.
While many teams have missings, there are still two main favourites to win the whole thing - USA and Serbia. United States team is the most talked about and even being closer to second or third USA team, they are still considered as favourites. And not without reason, as Greg Popovich will squeeze the most out of his young team.
Don't forget to take a look at all tips from our tipsters for Fiba World Cup China. But now let's look at what could be closest to sure bet in this World cup.
Serbia to finish TOP 3
Serbia has one of the most complete and balanced rosters among all teams, their only real missing is Teodosic, which actually makes them even better on defense.
Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets, Boban Marjanovic of the Philadelphia 76ers, Nemanja Bjelica of the Sacramento Kings. Add
probably the best SG of the whole tournament Bogdan Bogdanovic (Sacramento Kings), glue guy Marko Guduric (Memphis Grizzlies). One of the best centers in Euroleague Nikola Milutinov, more than solid backup center Miroslav Raduljica and so on.
In friendlies they have beaten Greece, even without their biggest star Jokic. Serbia have also beaten France, Lithuania (twice), Italy (twice) and did not lose once.
Serbia got essentially free pass to semi-finals, as you can read about World Cup competition system and brackets here on the official page.
We calculate about 75+% for Serbia to Finish Top 3 and while there is a possibility to lose a game in semis or finals, odds 1.50 at Pinnacle are worth to take for Serbia to get any medal. And it should go down pretty soon - anything above 1.4 still holds value.
