The Olympics Men’s Basketball tournament really heats up today and you can bet on all the action at Bet Online. They are offering spread and total point markets for every game played at the tournament. There are a number of interesting match-ups today and smart bettors should be able to find some excellent value.
One intriguing match-up is the battle of the African nations, Tunisia and Nigeria. Tunisia is excellent value to beat the spread in this game. They are the form side in African basketball winning the 2011 FIBA Africa Championship. They have a very tight knit and well drilled squad as most of their players play together at club level. Nigeria are a good side, finishing 3rd in the 2011 African Championship, but with an 11 point start available for Tunisia they should be able to beat the spread handily. Bet on Tunisia at Bet Online.
The United States Dream Team has their second game of tournament today where they will take on France. The Dream Team has been in hot-form in the lead up to the Olympics defeating 2008 Olympic silver medalists Spain 100-78. France is led by San Antonio Spurs point-guard Tony Parker who is basically carrying this team on his shoulders. Bet Online have set the spread as 24 and a half points which the United States should easily account for. France is nowhere near the level of Spain and the United States beat them effortlessly. If you think the United States will defeat France by over 24 points bet now at Bet Online.
Another game with great value on offer is the home nation, Great Britain, taking on Russia. The Great Britain basketball team is competing at its first Olympic games since 1948 and it is fairly safe to say they would not have qualified if they weren’t granted automatic qualification for being the host nation. Great Britain is not a strong basketball nation and a single win would be considered a successful campaign for this side. Russia, on the other hand, has a strong squad for this Olympics led by Denver Nuggets star Timofey Mozgov. Bet Online has set the line at 10 and a half points when realistically Russia could win this game by over 30 points.
