I like Croatia to cover this small spread. Actually there is a good chance for them to win, but I feel much safer with some points on my side as this could easily end up within 1-2 possessions. I rate these teams similarly. Lithuania is maybe bit better on paper, but I feel like Croatia's style under coach Petrovic is going to cause them problems. Croatia has plenty of 3 point shooters and they are encouraged to pull the trigger. Lithuania might not have appropriate answer for that. They are coming after a tough loss that probably shook their confidence.
Croatia also lost in an embarrassing fashion against team they should have defeated easily. However, I doubt this shook their confidence, in fact I can only see them more focused on this match. It holds importance as both teams are looking to avoid team USA.
Take the points in what should be a 50:50 match.
