12/08/2016 02:30 BST – Lithuania v Argentina – Betting Tips

Rio 2016 Betting Tips - Lithuania v ArgentinaSecond plays first in this game and with both teams having maximum points after two games in Group B, something will have to give in this one. Argentina may not have the support of most fans in Brazil but they are a South American team and they should feel comfortable playing in Rio this summer. Lithuania may be feeling slightly out of place but they can be sure of a warm welcome and plenty of backing from the Brazilian fans in this game. All of these factors ensure that this should be a game that has plenty to look out for.

A 9 point margin of victory over Nigeria may not be the most convincing of victories at the 2016 Olympic Games, but it was more than enough to ensure Lithuania continued on their winning way. The top man for points scoring in this game was Jonas Mačiulis, who delivered 21 points in the triumph.

A 90-82 win over Croatia was enough for Argentina to enjoy a second win of the tournament and Luis Scola was instrumental in the triumph. Scola picked up 23 points and 9 rebounds in this game and if he is able to deliver that sort of performance again against Lithuania, the Argentineans are likely to have a great night.
