Olympic Games Basketball Odds – NBA Stars Odds-On To Claim Basketball Gold For USA
- USA odds-on to retain men’s Olympic basketball crown
- American roster packed with NBA stars including Durant & Lillard
- Australia and Spain only other teams shorter than 20/1
The USA boast a line-up of NBA stars so it is no shock to see the bookmakers backing them for Olympic Gold.
Damian Lillard, Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, Draymond Green and Zach LaVine are all part of a USA group that is loaded with some of the best players in the world.
The USA have underwhelmed in some of their warm-up games for the Olympics, but that has not dented the bookies’ confidence in them.
William Hill expect the Americans to turn it on when it really matters, making them 3/10 favourites to win gold at the Games.
Australia made it all the way to the semi-finals in 2016, where they lost to Serbia, and they are considered the USA’s biggest threat at 8/1.
Another of the 2016 semi-finalists, Spain, are next up at 10/1 ahead of 20/1 France and Slovenia.
Nigeria upset the United States in a warm-up game recently, but they remain out at 33/1 alongside Argentina.
