Serbia vs Canada Predictions & Tips

Canada are tipped to cover as they advance to the World Cup Final.

This Canadian roster is loaded and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been playing MVP-level basketball.

They are backed to have too much for Serbia to handle, resulting in a victory and cover.

  • Canada have won 5 of their 6 World Cup games
  • Canada have covered in 4 of their 6 games so far
  • The Under has hit in 3 of Canada’s last 6 games
  • The Under has cashed in 3 of Serbia’s last 5 games

Head To Head

  • Serbia lead the series 1-0 since 2014
  • Serbia won 78-73 when the teams last met in August 2014

Serbia Form

Serbia go into this FIBA World Cup semi-final clash having won five of their six games so far.

The Serbians won all three of their first-round group games in convincing fashion, beating China 105-63, Puerto Rico 94-77 and South Sudan 115-83.

They failed to make it four-in-a-row though, losing 78-76 to Italy in the opening game of the second-round group stage.

Serbia bounced back immediately though, cruising to a 112-79 win over the Dominican Republic to book their quarter-finals.

Then, in the last eight, the Serbians took down a red-hot Lithuania team, 87-67, to march into the semi-finals.

Canada Form

Canada have won five of their six games on their way to the semi-finals of the FIBA World Cup.

The Canadians made an early statement as they comprehensively beat the second favourites to win it all, France, 85-65.

They backed that 128-73 blowout of Lebanon before easing to a 101-75 victory over Latvia in their final first-round game.

Canada’s streak was halted at three games as they lost 69-65 to Brazil in their opening game of the second round, but like Serbia they rebounded quickly from a loss.

They got back on track with an 88-85 victory over Spain in the quarter-finals, and then advanced to the final four with a 100-89 win over Slovenia.

Verdict

Canada boast the stronger roster and in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander they have the best player at the tournament.

He can play scorer and provider, and if Serbia cannot stop the NBA star we are likely to see a Canadian victory and cover.
