Italy vs. Australia
July 28th 6:20pm
Australia seeks to continue its winning ways at the Olympics when it faces the Italians who are also in winning form.
Flag bearer Patty Mills stamped his authority on the games with a 25-point effort in the 84-67 triumph over Nigeria on the weekend.
Joe Ingles and Dante Exum chimed in with 11 points each but it is the defence of the Boomers which held firm to restrict Nigeria to 27 second-half points during the win.
The Italians, meanwhile, mustered up a 92-82 win over Germany after storming home to victory with a 12-0 run to end the game.
The Boomers will have to be wary of the offensive threat posed by Simone Fontecchio who posted 20 points in the win last week.
Atlanta Hawks power forward Danilo Gallinari is another Brian Goorjian must keep in check.
The $3 about Patty Mills to score 20 points or more into a Boomers win just looks too good to refuse given the form he is in.
Australia clearly has the talent edge in this match but we respect the market which is suggesting the Italians will not die wondering.
Australia to win, but Italy can cover the line.
Patty Mills 20+ points into Australia win at $3
Italy +7.5 at $1.94
