(-7)Russia vs Lithuania
(+6) France vs Spain
(+3.5)Brazil vs Argentina
(-34)USA vs Austrailia
There are some very good games here.
USA wins easily, but I really enjoyed watching Patty Mills play, including watching him hit the game winner vs Russia.
Russia's defense is going to overwhelm Lithuania, which has major turnover issues. Russia has some players.
Brazil vs Argentina and France vs Spain are going to 2 great games to watch. Both games are matchup of continental rivals.
I picking Argentina to win in a gritty game, setting up another match against USA.
I got France to upset Spain despite the records.
That is cool how that worked out with the story lines France /Spain and Argentina/Brazil being not just intercontinental rivals but border countries!!
Also i think the 20 year old grudge match Lithuania vs the Soviet Union!!
You couldn't make a better bracket even if you got to pick them.
(-7)Russia vs Lithuania Russia is squeaking by people, they beat Lit but not the spread
(+6) France vs Spain Spain easily covers the spread with a 13-15 point win
(+3.5)Brazil vs Argentina Argentina frustrated the USA offense for a whole half. No reason they Can't do that to Brazil for a whole game. Brazil beats the spread.
(-34)USA vs Austrailia USA beats the spread. Patty Mills will want to cry by the end of the game with Paul and Westbrook taking turns checking him
USA, Russia, Spain, Brazil to win.
i think Australia beats the spread
