13/08/2016 23:00 BST – Spain v Lithuania – Betting Tips
Before the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio began Spain were listed as the second favourites and the team most likely to cause USA trouble. At this point in time, with just two games to go in Group B, Spain are currently sat outside of the qualification places for the knockout round. This is obviously a big concern for the Spanish side, and they face two tough games before the group concludes.
There may be some bonus for the Spanish side in that their opponents in this game, Lithuania, are already qualified for the knockout round. It could be that the Lithuanians will take things slightly easier in this game but equally, they may decide that this is the ideal opportunity to knock Spain out of the tournament. While they may be having a difficult time, you could never fully discount the Spanish from finding form at some point so expect Lithuania to be up for this game.
Spain managed to defeat Nigeria in their most recent outing and Pau Gasol was their top point scorer, grabbing 16 points along the way. Gasol has been the most important player for Spain so far in the tournament and he will be expected to do the damage in this game if the Spanish are to have any chance of progressing.
Lithuania grabbed a big win against Argentina in their last game with Mindaugas Kuzminskas delivering 23 points. Anyone who has watched the Euroleague in recent years will know that Kuzminskas is a brilliant basketball player, which is why the New York Knicks have signed him up for the NBA this summer.
