12/08/2016 18:15 BST – China v Australia – Betting Tips

Rio 2016 Betting Tips - China v AustraliaThe team at the bottom of the group is playing the team in second place and you would imagine that Australia have got more than enough in their locker to deal with the Chinese in this game. The Chinese are the only team in Group A yet to win a game while Australia come into this match on the back of a tough but spirited encounter against the United States.

China lost by four points in their most recent game, the clash with Venezuela. This was the game that China were going to have their best chance of success but the narrow defeat with have been a sore one. Guo Ailun provided 17 points for the Chinese who has a strong second and third quarter but just couldn’t hold on for the victory.

The most recent Australian game was against USA so no one expected them to win but they pushed them close. The 88-98 defeat was a tough for Australia to take but it may well be the hardest game the USA have to play this summer. Patty Mills was once again the key player for the Australian side, providing 30 points in the defeat.
