Argentina vs Serbia Prediction & Betting Odds - FIBA 2019 Basketball Picks
September 10, 2019
Serbia take on Argentina on Tuesday afternoon (local time) in the quarterfinals of the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup at the Dongfeng Nissan Cultural and Sports Center.
Argentina has won all five of their games in China to date, with their last victory coming with an impressive 91-65 win over Poland on Sunday evening. Former NBA star Luis Scola headed the scoring for Argentina with 21 points, six rebounds and three assists.
The highly-rated Serbians lost 81-69 to Spain on Sunday evening after having won their first four games. That was the first loss for Serbia since February, when they went out in the European quarterfinals.
The Serbs are regarded by many as the biggest threat to Team USA. It’s easy to see why when they have players of the quality of Nikola Jokić (who played less than 17 minutes against Spain before he was ejected for arguing with an official in the third quarter) and the Sacramento Kings duo Bogdan Bogdanović and Nemanja Bjelica on the roster.
