FIBA EuroBasket 2022 betting tips – Lithuania on the ropes against Germany

At Köln Arena, Lithuania seeks its first victory in the EuroBasket against hosts Germany. Yesterday, Kazys Maksvytis’ guys suffered their second consecutive loss to France (73-77), despite leading for the most part of the game.

The fourth quarter was disastrous for the Lithuanians (17-27). Jonas Valanciunas (15 points, 8 rebounds), Rokas Jokubaitis (14 points) and Marius Grigonis (13 points) contributed a lot, but could not get the job done.

In today’s game, Lithuania NT has to win. Otherwise, they could face an early elimination from Eurobasket in the next two features against Bosnia and Hungary.

On the contrary, hosts Germany managed to double their victories in Group B against Bosnia & Herzegovina (92-82). Franz Wagner and Dennis Schroder scored 18 points each.

Gordie Herbert’s team performed really well in the third quarter (28-11). “Die Mannschaft” is seeking its third consecutive win to secure its qualification in EuroBasket Round of 16.

I believe today’s game is hard to pick a winner. Lithuania NT needs this victory more than the Germans. However, anxiety and despair could easily affect the result.

Therefore, my first betting prediction is that Germany NT will protect the handicap of +3.5 (odds at 1.87).

I also predict that Marius Grigonis will score more than 15 points (odds at 2.22). He did so against Slovenia and he is more than capable of repeating such a performance. My fun bet with odds at 6.10 is that he will also be the top scorer of this game.

Safe bet:

Germany +3.5 (1.87)

Value bet:

Marius Grigonis over 14.5 points (2.22)

Fun bet:

Marius Grigonis first scorer (6.10)
