Croatia
VS
Italy
Extremely important game for both teams. The winner will secure visa for quarter finals. I would not be surprised if we see here at the end one possession game. In any case, I can't agree not even little bit that Croatia should be any favorite here. Not even for these 3 points. If there should be any favorite in this game then it should be Italian team. Croatia entire championship was sloppy, they were the same in preparation period but then after huge win over Finland, suddenly they are (-3) vs Italy. No way if you ask me. Italy has played well entire championship. 5 straight victories for them and then they were defeated from host Slovenia in game where it could easily to go in their favor.

 

This team is not the best what Italy has and most likely this is the reason why everyone underate them. But no matter of this, there is still great quality in their team.

 

So far Italy was the second-best team in the tournament when it comes to offence (averaged 78 points per game) while Croatia with 67.3 allowed is the third-best defence.

 

It should be interesting and my money is on Italy.

So many facts you havent mentionned, the pick is probably based mostly on the fact that you dislike Croatia in general. The croatian coach worked for some time in Italy and knows them very well, many fans from Croatia will travel to Ljubljana so almost a home game expected, Croatia has also 5 wins in a row (with a win against the host Slovenia) and a great team chemistry. Italy is very weak at the center position while all croatain PFs and Cs are in great form( Tomic, Saric, Markota, Zoric) and if the italians dont shoot extremely well from beyond the arc i dont see how they will be able to eq

If you don't have something smart to say, then better don't say anything. I read so much nonsense here but lets start with the biggest one:

1) "I dislike Croatia in general"
Yea you are right. You don't know me, you don't anything about me. Why would I hate anyone? Even if that were true and it's not, this is betting and emotions are not welcome here. For me never was problem to bet against my favorite team or to bet on someone who is not my favorite if I have good reasons and see high value in odds.
2) "The croatian coach worked for some time in Italy and knows them very well"
