Serbia is the chalk by a single point because the Serbs played great basketball in their Round 2 game versus the Dominican Republic. The Serbs dusted the DR 112-79.

But although Bogdan Bogdanovic and his mates were ultra-impressive in the victory, the Lithuanians had the more impressive Round 2 victory, beating the United States 110-104.

Lithuania’s Vaidas Kariniauskas was terrific when posting 15 points, grabbing 4 boards, and dishing 2 assists. Jonas Valanciunas had 13 points and 7 boards and Tadas Sedekerskis secured 11 rebounds and scored 14 points.

The Lithuanians are strong upfront and at the guard position. The 1-point favorite gets the win.

FIBA World Cup Quarterfinals Pick: Lithuania -1 

Italy vs USA | Quarterfinals

FIBA Odds: Italy +16; USA -16 / Italy +869; USA -1666 / O/U 178.5

Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay, Philippines

The Italians dominated Puerto Rico 73-57 in their second round game, but this is a major step up. The United States heads into this off a loss.

So Team USA will be motivated. The Americans will try to push the pace. The Italians will attempt to slow things down. Italy is a decent squad, but after losing to Lithuania, it’s difficult seeing the U.S. allowing Italy to keep this close.

Fast break points should favor the American’s big time. A blowout USA victory is the call.

FIBA World Cup Quarterfinals Pick: USA -16 

Germany vs Latvia | Quarterfinals

FIBA Odds: Germany -8.5; Latvia +8.5 / Germany -416; Latvia -308 / O/U 169.5
Wednesday, September 6 at 4:45 am ET | ESPN+
Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay, Philippines

Based on shooting stats, the Latvians can hang with the Americans. But stats only tell part of the story. Latvia has 3 impressive victories over Brazil, an uninterested France side, and an overrated Spain.

The Germans have played better with every game. Germany blasted Slovenia 101-71 in their last. Before the beating over Slovenia, they dominated Georgia 100-73. Germany covers.

FIBA World Cup Quarterfinals Pick: Germany -8.5 

Canada vs Slovenia | Quarterfinals

FIBA Odds: Canada -8.5 vs Slovenia +8.5 / Canada -416; Slovenia -308 / O/U 179.5
Wednesday, September 6 at 8:30 am ET | ESPN+
Mall of Asia Arena, Pasay, Philippines

Slovenia has Luka Doncic. But although Canada’s best player doesn’t get as much press as Luka, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander may be more effective in this game.

Gilgeous-Alexander has come into his own in this. One of the reasons is because Canada is playing like the FIBA World Cup winner. SGA leads his nation to a win and cover.

FIBA World Cup Quarterfinals Pick: Canada -7 

FIBA World Cup Semifinal Predictions

USA vs Germany | Semifinal Betting Predictions

The United States will struggle against Germany. Team USA is an okay but not great rebounding team while the Germans are good at everything.

Germany is dominating on both sides of the court. If the U.S. struggles with Italy, the Germans could go off the slight favorite. Favorite or dog, Germany ends the United State’s quest for the FIBA World Cup trophy.

FIBA World Cup Semifinals Pick: Germany 

Lithuania vs Canada | Semifinal Betting Predictions

Canada is playing too well to lose in the semifinals. Shai and his mates have done nothing wrong this tournament.

More importantly, Canada is deep enough to throw players like Dillon Brooks at Lithuania if the Lithuanians are beating the Canadians in the paint. Canada wins to set up a Canadian versus German FIBA World Cup Final.

FIBA World Cup Semifinal Pick: Canada
