Team World vs Team USA Betting Picks
This is going to be a very entertaining, high-scoring game with lots of threes and dunks. Expect the NBA betting lines for this game to come out a little bit absurd since it won’t be played like a regular NBA game.
Moneyline: Bet on Team USA to dominate and win SU. They have one-two punch combo of Zion Williamson and Trae Young, and these two dynamic stars are surrounded by super athletes and excellent transition players.
ATS: Bet on Team USA to cover the spread. It’s going to be a tight ballgame through the first three and half quarters before Team USA pulls away by double digits.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER. This is going to be a high-scoring affair with little to no defenses on both ends of the floor. I expect both teams to score more than 150 points in this game.
Score Prediction: 160 – 150 Team USA
