The Men’s USA Basketball team has suffered back-to-back losses during international friendlies this week, but it is still the prohibitive favorite to walk away on top of the Summer Olympics.
SportsBetting released gold medal odds for men’s basketball Tuesday, and the USA is a 1/6, or -600, favorite, meaning a bettor would have to wager $600 just to return $100.
Australia, which defeated the USA squad yesterday, is second on the board with 9/1 or +900 odds.
Nigeria, after beating Team USA as a 30-point underdog on Sunday, comes in with 33/1 odds.
The USA team is an 18.5-point favorite in their friendlies game against Argentina tonight.
