London 2012 Men’s Olympic Basketball Preview & TipsBasketball Betting Tips, London 2012 Olympics
Such is the dominance of Team USA there is not much value to be found in the Olympic men’s basketball tournament.
The Americans are 1/6 to win the gold and if you fancy buying some money then lump on because those odds are a fair representation of the field’s chances.
The world may have caught up since the total supremacy of the Dream Team (pictured) 20 years ago in Barcelona but since Argentina won gold in Athens the USA has kicked on to establish the gap once again.
Spain, who Team USA beat 100-78 in the run up to the Games, represent the best chance of an upset and they are 4/9 favourites in the without market.
While gold medallists eight years ago at Athens, Argentina are also likely to have a reckoning towards the business end of the tournament.
The South Americans also tested Team USA in the run-up to London, losing by just eight points, and their price of 5/2 with bet365 to finish in the medals could be the best bet of the tournament.
Great Britain have basketball representation for the first time since the last London Games in 1948 but despite the inclusion of NBA star Luol Deng they are likely to do little more than make up the numbers.
