The FIBA Basketball World Cup is down to the quarter-finals, with Australia set to take on the Czech Republic in Shanghai on Wednesday night.
The winner of this match will move on to face either Spain or Poland in the semis, with Team USA and Argentina looming as potential opponents for whichever side reaches the final.
A motivational comeback against France has left the Boomers with extra confidence and extended their World Cup winning streak to five games.
Australia has never come home with a medal before, fifth place being their previous best run at the tournament.
This will be the best chance the Boomers have ever been given, as they start favourites in this match and could beat whichever opponent comes next.
The Czechs have beaten Japan, Turkey and Brazil, with Team USA and Greece the only two countries to defeat them.
Tomas Satoransky has led the way for the Czech Republic, averaging over seven assists per match and a very strong 15 points per game, putting him second in the tournament for assists and 22nd for points.
Australia vs Czech Republic betting predictions
Patty Mills over 19.5 points @ $1.94 with Sportsbet
The third-best scorer in the 2019 Basketball World Cup will have to put in another large performance against the Czechs if the Aussies want to win. Mills’ ability to find space in the paint and shoot contested is elite, putting him in the same category as many of his NBA peers. Mills will pull the trigger if given the space, which is why he will continue on his scoring tear.
Tomas Satoransky over 22.5 points + assists @ $1.78 with Sportsbet
Most teams with one NBA player will try to use that player as often as possible, and the Czechs are no exception. Satoransky is a very efficient shooter that knows how to get in dangerous positions, which he has learned in his time at the Chicago Bulls. With solid teammates surrounding him, Satoransky will accumulate at least 23 points and assists.
Joe Ingles over 17.5 points + rebounds @ $1.94 with Sportsbet
Watching Ingles against the French was an absolute treat. The Utah Jazz man was constantly trash talking with Rudy Gobert while dropping plenty of buckets. Ingles had 23 points in that game and will be feeling good for Wednesday’s quarter-final clash.
Australia to win @ $1.22 with Sportsbet
The Aussies will build momentum in this match and prepare themselves for the upcoming game against what will more than likely be Spain. The Czechs have enjoyed their run to date, but this is as far as they will advance.
