Before Eurobasket I have read spain newspapers and players said that their goal to take revenge against France. They took and ticket to Rio. Most of the team has Eurobasket gold here (only Rodriguez doesn’t) and I have doubts that Spain will be motivated here as much as Lithuanians. Spain has too many players out of their system and you can’t win games only with Gasol doing a party.
Lithuania has great chance to win Eurobasket gold, if they will avoid slumps during the game. They are improving game by game and still yet to play their best game at this tournament. There will be huge support in Lille for Lithuania and this might help them a lot. As a team I think that Lithuania has advantage with more players involved into the team offense and defensively they are looking very solid too. The only problem for Kazlauskas is players lever. They don’t have players like Gasol, Rodriguez, Lull.. but there is chance that soon Kalnetis, Seibutis and Maciulis will be there + Valanciunas is already matching that level.
I don’t see much value to take Lithuania with full stake here. But there a system bets here. Spain has 3 unders and 3 handicaps covered in a row. I see small value on over and Lithuania here, so my final choices here at this even are:
Pick: Lithuania +5 @ 1.92
Pick: over 146 @ 1.92
