Italy -1.5 points
Important game for both sides. The winner will guarantee a place in the FIBA World Cup next year, while the loser will get nothing. I don’t really understand, why Serbia is a favourite today. They have been a total mess the last games. First they were destroyed by Spain with 90:60 in the quarter-final and then another big loss against Slovenia with -18. Already in the group stages Serbia was looking pretty weak and lost against Ukraine, as well almost Belgium. For Italy the last days also have been tough, but they definitely have been playing much better than Serbia. Team has a great offense, which should win them also this game.
