France - Israel ( Eurobasket 2013 )

Israel has been disastrous so far. In the previous two games, they not only lost, but also disappointed many others who followed them. France suffered a shocking defeat against Germany in the first match day; however, they did compensate this loss by hitting Great Britain hard yesterday. Today, they better keep going forward by adding another victory, thus  clinching the top spot of the group.

Israel is probably the most delusional team so far, excluding Turkey. They have important guys like Omri Casspi, Lior Eliyahu, Yogev Ohayon etc. in their roster, but they just couldn't play the basketball they were supposed to play. After having watched their play against Ukraine, I personally lost my entire faith on this team. Today, their opponent is even tougher, so I'm not sure if they manage to prevail.

France suffered a surprising defeat against Germany, mainly thanks to amazing 3pts performance of Germans in the last minutes. Later, they quickly recovered by beating Great Britain. To avoid surprises, they took absolute control of the game from the first minute. France team has enough talent, depth and experience in their roster, so it wasn't a big deal to revitalize for them.

Ukraine has already two victories in the group, so France needs to level the number of wins with them. Their rotation is nearly ideal with Tony Parker, Nicolas Batum, Florent Pietrus, Boris Diaw and Nando De Colo being with the team. As I said, Israel is lost and I don't think they could pick themselves up again. The spread is set on 10+ points. So, instead of bothering such high spreads, I'll go for half time spread as usual. I expect a double digit lead already in the first half.

Pick: France Half Time -7.5 @ 1.90 bet365

Good luck and happy betting!!!
