Eurobasket Betting Preview

The 2013 Eurobasket tournament is taking place in three weeks in Slovenia with the first games taking place on September 4th.

Having won two Eurobasket's in a row, Spain go into the tournament as heavy favourites with France a close second, GB sadly are one of the least fancied teams in the tournament with many of the big names unavailable.

Meanwhile Spain, France, Greece and Lithuania are all favourites in their respective groups in what should be an exciting tournament.

The odds:

Spain look like they could make it a hat-trick of Eurobasket tournament wins with odds of 9/4 at William Hill and Coral.

France meanwhile are 5/1 with William Hill which are the best odds you'll get for the team which features NBA star Tony Parker who will be their main man at the tournament.

You can also get odds of 5/1 for Greece with Ladbrokes and YouWin and they may be the outside tip to cause a little upset.

Other than that Lithuania are 14/1 with YouWin, Russia are 20/1 with William Hill and hosts Slovenia are 20/1 with Coral.

Team GB's chances are slim but you may want to take a punt with Coral offering 750/1 they win the tournament, 188 offer the lowest odds for GB with 200/1.

The group stage outright betting sees France 2/13 on, Lithuania at 5/4, Spain 4/11 and Greece evens. GB once again aren't fancied with the bookies at 100/1.

While Spain and France are the favourites it might be worth backing a dark horse, Russia may be worth a cheeky pound, while don't rule out Lithuania or Greece just yet.

Courtois discussed his passion for the NBA after the game: “I don’t really have a team. I know a few players at the Lakers and at the Knicks, so I like to follow the players I really know well. I’m very excited to see Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers in London for the NBA London Game 2018 for example, I think it will be a great game and hopefully they will win as well.”
Fosu-Mensah then concluded by sharing his excitement for the NBA London Game 2018, “I’ve always wanted to see an NBA game and the London Game is going to be my first one ever, so I’m really excited to go. It’s going to be a grea…
