FIBA World Cup Predictions: Jordan – Greece (26-08-2023)
Today, the morning dawns with the long-awaited FIBA World Cup 2023 just a few minutes away, and as we eagerly await the breathtaking battles between the national teams, some enthusiasts might also be checking out basketball betting sites for a chance to add an extra layer of excitement to the games.
|🏀 Jordan – Greece: under 158,5 points @ 1.90|
Unfortunately, for one of the leaders of the championship, Greece, this day also marks a loss that diminishes the hopes for medals, as one of the biggest stars of the year, Giannis Antetokounmpo, has definitely been left out of the team and the championship.
This is undoubtedly a big blow for the Greeks and for all basketball fans in this country.
Another very important factor in this game is the replacement of Tyler Dorsey by Thomas Walkup.
At this position, it is well known that Dorsey is a very talented, world-class shooter and scorer, and Walkup is one of the best defenders in Europe, so the offence loses a lot of energy at this position and the defensive factors become stronger.
So, as we have already seen, Greece is in big trouble with a much weaker line-up. Apart from the legendary Giannis, the team is also missing two regular midfielders, Nick Calathes and Kostas Sloukas.
This is also a big blow to the Greek defence, as both players have been indispensable conductors of the team for the last ten years and have been doing their job on the court, fulfilling all the coaches' wishes.
This loss will undoubtedly be another and very big problem for the Greek team's offense.
In my opinion as a basketball expert, Greece will be a team that will enjoy and be proud of playing unattractive. They like to win in unattractive style – it is in their team's blood and it will be reminiscent of the Memphis Grizzlies' ‘Grit & Grind' era.
Jordan is predicted by the bookmakers to be 25+ points behind and at this point, it's hard to imagine their team being able to score 70+ points. In this encounter, it should be an unsightly and slow game, with Greece estimated to win 89:65.
