Rio 2016 Betting Tips - Argentina v CroatiaBasketball fans in the UK or Europe will find that this game tips off in the small hours of Wednesday morning but for fans in Brazil and Rio, this is the last game of Tuesday evening. It features two teams that won their opening game so one team will maintain their 100% record after this game while the other team will drop to a 50/50 record.

Argentina will have been delighted to get their campaign in Brazil off to a good start. Nigeria were hardly the toughest opponents the South American side could have faced but it allowed them to come to terms with the Rio crowd and the level of abuse they can expect to face in this tournament. Facundo Campazzo served up 19 points in the win and the South Americans will be desperate to quieten down the home fans once again in this match.

Croatia grabbed a big win in their opening game, defeating Spain by two points, thanks to a massive showing in the fourth quarter. A 25-16 showing in the final quarter was more than enough to turn things around and give the Spaniards something else to think about. Bojan Bogdanović was the key player with 23 points in this win, which gives Croatia an ideal starting platform for the rest of the tournament.
