USA vs. Czech Republic: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

USA 108, Czech Republic 79

Money line (ML)

USA (-10000) is a giant favorite, costing you $100 risked for every $1 won. That's not a recommended betting strategy, even if there is very little chance of a loss here.

AVOID, and look to the spread instead.

Against the spread (ATS)

USA -23.5 (-110) was able to right the ship against Iran last time out, and it's not expected to face much resistance Saturday, either.

While the loss to France in the group opener is still fresh in everybody's mind, as are exhibition losses to Australia and Nigeria, look for the Americans to build upon its impressive win with another strong showing against an overmatched foe.

Over/Under(O/U)

OVER 183.5 (-110) cashed in Team USA's rout of Iran, and you can expect triple digits on offense against the undersized Czechs.

France flirted with the century mark in its 20-point rout of CZE.
