Tokyo 2020 Olympics – Event Rundown: What can I bet on Thursday, July 29?

Olympic Men’s Basketball Tournament Betting Preview for Thursday, July 29

Japan Vs Slovenia

  • When: Thursday, July 29

Slovenia produced a phenomenal display in their 118-100 victory against Argentina on Monday. It marked a historic moment for the small central-European nation who won their debut at the Olympics and are slowly proving themselves serious candidates for an Olympic medal.

With that win, Slovenia are now on a seven-game winning streak. That leaves Japan with a daunting prospect as they look to bounce back following a 77-88 loss to Spain in the tournament opener.

On a more positive note, Japan held on well against Spain and managed to keep the score relatively tight, but knowing how deadly Slovenia can be in the attack, achieving the same success on Thursday won’t be easy. Stopping Luka Doncic (who has scored 48 points against Argentina) will be essential for Japan; however, with the performance they have shown against Spain, it’s hard to believe they’ll manage to achieve it.

Slovenia have been impressive in the attack against Argentines, which saw them score 118 points. On the back of such a commanding victory, the Slovenes should be capable of covering the 20.5 points spread.

Prediction: Slovenia -20.5 points

Spain Vs Argentina

  • When: Thursday, July 29

Argentina suffered a heavy loss in their 2020 Tokyo Olympics basketball tournament opener when they suffered an 18-points loss against Slovenia. Results like that hardly inspire much confidence, and it’s easy to see why many believe things could get much worse for the Argentines against Spain.

Spain won against Japan (88-77), marking their eighth win from their last nine outings. Their only defeat during that stretch happened against the USA in the pre-Olympics tournament when they lost 76-83.

Spain is 8-1 in the head-to-head against Argentina since the 2004 Olympic Games and have won all of their last five meetings. These two nations last met in the finals of the 2019 World Cup, where Spain won with 96-76.

Anything can happen at the Olympics, but considering the history between these two nations and Argentina’s poor form, it would be a major surprise if the Argentines can cause an upset. Spain should get it done with at least 8.5 points to spare.

Prediction: Spain -8.5 points

Olympic Women’s Basketball Tournament Betting Preview for Thursday, July 29

Spain Vs Serbia

  • When: Thursday, July 29

Spain edged out South Korea (73-69) in their opener of the Olympics, while Serbia managed almost the exact same score against the Canadian national team (72-68) on Monday. Considering their performances in the last round, this one promises to be a close affair, but something has to give.

Both Spain and Serbia have done just enough to secure their first win of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, so it’s hard to set them apart. These two nations last met in June in the quarter-finals of the Women’s European Championship, when Serbia came out ahead with a 71-64 overtime win.

Considering how closely matched Serbia and Spain were just a month back, we can expect another tight affair on Thursday. If you’re feeling lucky, a bet on a draw could earn you a high payout; however, when picking out a winner, we have to take the plus money on Spain to avenge their loss and level the score with the Eagles.

Prediction: Serbia to win
