United States vs Canada Predictions & Tips

Canada are tipped to cover as betting underdogs.

The United States have not been a reliable spread bet at all, and Canada may have a little more motivation to win this one.

  • Canada have covered in 4 of their 7 games
  • USA have cover in only 3 of their 7 games
  • The Over has cashed in 4 of Canada's 7 games
  • The 2 teams have averaged a combined 195.7 points per game in the tournament

Head To Head

  • United States lead the series 2-0 since 2019
  • United States won 84-80 when the teams last met in September 2022

United States Form

The United States find themselves playing in the third place playoff after a stunning semi-final defeat.

The Americans entered the tournament as odds-on favourites to win it all, but got off to a lacklustre start as they beat New Zealand 99-72.

They then advanced to the second round with a 109-81 win against Greece, followed by a 110-62 crushing of Jordan.

The United States made it four-in-a-row as they beat Montenegro 85-73 in their opening second round game, only to then see their win streak end with a 110-104 defeat to Lithuania.

They rebounded with a dominant 100-63 win against Italy in the quarter-finals, but their World Cup quest was brought to a shocking end in the semi-finals as they were beaten 113-111 by Germany.

Canada Form

Canada had to settle for a place in the third place playoff after losing for the second time at the FIBA World Cup.

The Canadians made an early splash when they won 85-65 against a France team who were considered second favourites coming into the tournament.

They followed up that victory with a 128-73 blowout of Lebanon, and the completed a flawless first round with a 101-75 demolition of Latvia.

Canada’s win streak was halted by a 69-65 loss to Brazil, but they bounced back immediately with an 88-85 victory over Spain.

The Canadians then downed Slovenia 100-90 in the quarter-finals, only to lose 95-86 to Serbia in the semi-finals.

Verdict

The United States are the better team, but Canada may have more motivation as they look to at least sign off with an upset of their biggest rivals.
