Croatia – Greece (18:00): After the first day’s appetizer, EuroBasket 2022 gets even more interesting for the Greeks, as the national team faces Croatia in the 3rd group opener in Milan. The Eurobasket schedule has brought them this way and the most difficult match in the first phase is the first in time for the representative group, so the bet is even more interesting.
Croatia – Greece (18:00): Croatia as always have plenty of talent in their ranks, with the likes of Hezonia, Saric, Bogdanovic and Smith. But every time something is done and fails in recent years, having been prematurely excluded from all competitions. In a group with Greece, Italy, Estonia, Great Britain and Ukraine, it cannot fail, regardless of what it will achieve against Antetokounmpo’s Greece. However, the conditions tonight favor the team to be at least competitive.
Dimitris Itoudis will hardly use Kostas Antetokounmpo and Slukas who will be in the starting lineup, but they will be protected. Papagiannis will play for a few minutes, who missed the entire preparation, while Papapetrou comes from three-four “full” training sessions. This means that the rotation will be small and our solutions at the center position are limited. Of course, we remain favorites despite the problems for the victory.
However, even if this difficulty is achieved, there will be a big difference in the score. We go with an ace bet at +8.5 points, which pays 1.80 (TigersBet). From special player bets, we single out the over 12.5 on the points of Mario Hezonia at a performance of 1.83 and for support the over 2.5 assists of Giannis Antetokounmpo at 1.60 (TigersBet).
