Olympic Basketball qualifying tournament in Caracas, Venezuela.
The 12 competing teams are divided into 4 groups for the preliminary round (round robin format). The top two teams from each group will advance to the quarterfinals. The last-placed team in each group will be eliminated. A single-elimination tournament will then be held. The semifinal winners will qualify for the Olympics. The semifinal losers will play for the last Olympic qualifying berth.
A match from group D where we have Angola, New Zealand and the "Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" to be politically correct for all the Greek citizens out there, although I believe they should have more important problems to solve than fighting against windmills ...

I thought so, for me neither. Let's move right away to the (FYR) Macedonian team. Bo McCalebb from Montepaschi Siena is a well-known name and he is member and leader of the team. Around him, we further have Antic, Todor Gecevski (former Zadar legend) and Samardziski as strong Centers respectively forwards. On the guard position besides McCalebb we will find Illievski including the brothers Stojanovski as valuable additions to a team which is clear favorite to get the first place in this group. This team went into the semi-finals of the last European Championships, where they occupied the 4th place. The team played two preparation matches in Venezuela already, losing both to the team from the Dominic Republic. But all what matters is still to come, so I don't rate those losses too much. To sum up. The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia should achieve an easy win over Angola, most likely expressed in double-digits. This team fights in every game, and they simply can't afford to take anyone lightly, that's why I believe that we will see a focused team from the beginning, avoiding any complications against a nothing more than 3rd class basketball team from Angola.
Medium stakes 6/10 on FYR Macedonia to win AH (-7.50).

Live betting is brilliant it always give you a chance to cover your money, i took Macedonia to win when i said and i also tool Macedonia +4.5, was happy to see the whistle go before the final Angola basket which would have made it 6 point win.. That would have been a 100% lose on original stakes this way it was about 10% as I got 1.85 for Macedonia +4.5.. Well done bro
Live betting is cool. It turns losses into wins. Hit the over and the two spreads on Angola in the 1st half, losing just the pre bet. Betting is funny, isn't it?!
I took Angola after 21-17 with +2.5 and later with -3.5 as livebet, adding another right away for the over 168.5 at 1.80. Angola is shooting 8/11 from the arc. No wonder as those where pretty much all easy open shots as FYROM isn't playing any defense right now. Moreover, they were outrebounded by 20-9 and I can't imagine how they should come back here. If they can shorten the distance to 5-6 after the 3rd than maybe, otherwise no way, not how they're playing right now.
Think they could potentially struggle to cover this handicap now its 53-40 to Angola at the half time break, i have just take Macedonia to win @ 2.40 in play.. GL
