08/08/2016 18:15 BST – Serbia v Australia – Betting Tips
Both of these teams have a 100% record going into their second game, so something will have to give in this match. Serbia enjoyed a comfortable win over Venezuela in their opening match while Australia had things tougher against France but they managed to grab the all-important win.
Bogdan Bogdanovic was the star man for Serbia in that opening win as he managed to grab 19 points in the win. He’ll need to deliver the goods again if Serbia want to take the victory in Rio but he is a player with considerable experience who can be relied on time and time again.
For Australia, Patty Mills made the difference against the French, offering up 21 points in the win. That game saw the Australians get off to a strong start and they were in complete control of the second half, which marks them out as being one of the favourites for the tournament now, if you exclude the American side! France are no slouches but the Australians looked very confident in dismantling the European side and the Aussies should have plenty of confidence coming into this game.
