With four games behind us and some teams finishing their group activity today, the Olympic Qualifying Basketball tournaments are moving at a great pace. The Monday action offered up plenty of action and points and today’s games should be of a similar nature.
2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament – Manila
Today is the opening day of play in Manila so the two games today are the first of the groups.
Tuesday 5th July 1130am BST Turkey v Canada
This could well be the game of the opening round, it is certainly the game of the opening round of fixtures, and both teams will think that they have a good chance of winning their opener. Turkey should just about have the edge and taking Turkey at -7.5 at odds of 1.83 isn’t a bad bet to get the tournament underway. The Over/Under market looks like going UNDER 154.5 at odds of 1.83.

Tuesday 5th July 2pm BST France v Philippines
With France being a big favourite to make it to Rio and the Philippines being the host of this leg of the tournament, this could be an intriguing match. The home crowd will be cheering their team on but France should have enough in their locker and taking France at -18.5 at odds of 1.83 is likely to be a sensible bet. For the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 157.5 which you can find at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament – Belgrade
Puerto Rico put in a brilliant performance against Serbia, but it was the tournament favourites who won out in the end by a score of 87-81, giving Serbia a +6 points difference. Latvia enjoyed a very comfortable win over Japan in the other game, winning by 88-48, giving them a points difference of +40.
Tuesday 5th July 5pm BST Puerto Rico v Angola
Puerto Rico will be looking to follow up their big showing on Monday and Angola will be the sort of opponents who can allow them to get back on track. You should look to back Puerto Rico at -17, at odds of 1.83, in this game. For the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 156.5 which you can find at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
Tuesday 5th July 8pm BST Latvia v Czech Republic
Latvia came into this game on the back of a convincing win but they’ll face much tougher opponents today. There isn’t much between these teams but taking Latvia at -1, at odds of 1.83, should give you something to cheer today. For the Over/Under market, you should look to go UNDER 151.5 which is available at odds of 1.83.
2016 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament – Turin
Greece were triumphant in the Group A game against Iran, winning by a score of 78-53 which is a margin of 25. In the Group B game, Italy defeated Tunisia by a score of 41-68, which gives a points difference of +27 after their opening game.
Tuesday 5th July 5pm BST Iran v Mexico
The Mexicans get their tournament underway today against Iran who look as though they will be concluding their involvement in the Olympic Qualification tournament today. Iran were thumped by Greece on Monday and while they will be keen to avoid such a score line today, the fact that they are playing their second game in two days while their opponents are fresh isn’t going to assist their cause.
Take Mexico at -6.5 at odds of 1.83 for this game and if you are looking for the Over/Under market, look to go UNDER 146.0 which is available at odds of 1.83. Bet Now!
Tuesday 5th July 8pm BST Italy v Croatia
Italy have to play their second game in two days against a Croatia side who are tipping off their campaign today but the home crowd will likely give the Italians some added energy and motivation. This should be one of the games of the week and the home side should just edge it.
You should look to take Italy at -6, which is on offer at odds of 1.83. When it comes to the Over/Under market, make sure you opt UNDER 148.5 at odds of 1.83.
