14/08/2016 23:00 BST – Australia v Venezuela – Betting Tips

Rio 2016 Betting Tips - Australia v VenezuelaBoth of these teams will be looking for a win for different reasons but it should provide us with a game that is well worth watching. The final day of action in Group A looks set to be an interesting one and this could be an enjoyable game for neutral fans and basketball betting lovers.

On paper, Australia should grab the win that keeps them in second place and keeps their momentum moving into the knockout round. There could be a situation where the tie at the top of the table becomes interesting if results pan out, but in all likelihood, this is a game Australia want to win to stay ahead of France but just tucked in neatly behind Brazil

For Venezuela, if they can cause an upset here, they could grab the final qualification spot. They need results to go in their favour but the first step in making this dream come true is to win their own game, so that is what they’ll be focused on.

Australia enjoyed a simple win over China in their most recent game, winning by 25 points. Cameron Bairstow provided 17 of these points and the Australians were never in any danger throughout the game.

Venezuela were thumped by France in their most recent outing, which means that they need to bounce back strongly in this game. Gregory Echenique has been in fine form in this tournament and he delivered 12 of the 56 points Venezuela scored in this defeat.

Australia want to maintain their momentum

Taking Australia at -22 isn’t a bad idea for this game and they should be looking to put this game to bed as early as they possibly can. If you are looking for the Over/Under market, you’ll find that going OVER 150.5 which you can find at odds of 1.90 will give you a good chance of a return in this game. Bet Now!

There aren’t too many Prop bets offering good value with an Australia half-time, Australia full-time bet coming in at odds of 1.10 so it is probably best to focus on the game.

However, if you have genuine confidence in detailing the outcome, the margin of victory bets may of interest. If you think that Australia will only win by 14 to 16 points, perhaps securing the win and then easing up, you can find odds of 7.50. If you think that a win of 17 to 20 points is more likely, odds of 5.50 are available.

The game starts at 2300 BST on Sunday 14th of August.
