Netherlands got a hundred points from Jokic
In the first round of the EuroBasket group stage, the Netherlands national team faced Serbia and, as expected, failed to offer any worthy resistance to Nikola Jokic and his team. The score at the end was 76-100. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the championship, there were a lot of similar games, given the presence of candid outsiders in each subgroup.
Israel got a hard victory
Despite having Lauri Markkanen on the roster, the Finns could hardly be called the favorite in their game against Israel. The Israelis won with great difficulty, but they were accurate in key moments of the game. 89-87 (79-79) – a great game by NBA guard Deni Avdija, who had 23 points and 15 rebounds.
The last time the two teams met was in 2014 in the EuroBasket qualifying. Israel beat the Netherlands in both head-to-head encounters.
Expert Betting Tips
In the match against Finland, the Israeli team had some serious problems. Well, Finnish basketball is really on the rise right now. In the upcoming game against the Netherlands, the Israelis are unlikely to have as much trouble. The Dutch seem to be the weakest team not only in Group D, but in the whole tournament. So, apart from supplying easy points to their opponents, there is nothing to expect from the Netherlands.
Prediction: a confident win for Israelis.
- H2 (-7.5) for 1.66;
- W2+TO (158.5) for 2.36;
- Israel ITO (85.5) for 2.077.
