Tokyo Day 15 Tips (Saturday 7th August)

France vs USA (Men's Basketball)
Over 175.5 Points ($1.85)

The United States have well and truly clicked into gear, and they will surely just win Gold in today’s match against France.

They put on a clinic against World Number 2 Spain in the quarterfinals and weathered a tough first half against Australia before ultimately putting them to the sword as well.

France has been the clear standout on the other side of the tournament, but there is no doubt that they will need to go to a new level to compete for all four quarters today.

best bet
Slovenia vs Australia (Men's Basketball)
Australia to Win ($2.05)

The Boomers have a shot at history tonight when they line up opposite Slovenia in the Bronze Medal match.

Slovenia have been the real surprise packets in the Men’s Basketball competition in Tokyo, but they failed to account for an impressive French side on Thursday. Regardless, they have opened warm favourites in betting.

Barring Thursday loss to the United States, Australia has been nothing short of outstanding in Tokyo, and there is no doubt that this shapes as our best ever opportunity to win an Olympic Games.

In my opinion, the $2.05 about Australia is overs.

Men's 1500m
SGM: Cheruiyot Gold/McSweyn Medal ($4.15)

Kenya’s Timothy Cheruiyot is opened a clear favourite in Men’s 1500m betting, and he will take a power of beating.

Cheruiyot has been nothing short of outstanding for several seasons now, but he has continued to improve noticeably with each, and arrives in Tokyo undefeated this year.

I’m going to pump up my odds with a Same Game Multi and include Australia’s Stewart McSweyn running into the medals.
