Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on USA vs New Zealand


The Americans brought a stellar squad to the World Cup. First of all, I would like to highlight Tyrese Haliburton, Jaylen Brunson, Anthony Edwards and Paolo Banchero. However, there are also little-known basketball players in the US roster. For example, Walker Kessler from Utah.

Before the World Cup, the Americans played five friendly matches in which they did not suffer a single setback. They look "star-striped" very confidently.

New Zealand

New Zealand often competes in world championships. In 2002, she even finished fourth. However, this time it is worth counting on such high positions, because the team's line-up is not as strong as that of other rivals.

Before the World Cup, New Zealand won the confrontation with Japan and the Chinese club Shenzhen. In other matches, the team failed.

Game Totals Prediction

New Zealand has a lame team game. Due to the individual actions of individual basketball players, it will be difficult to oppose something to the Americans. Most likely, the New Zealanders will not be able to give an effective game. In this regard, we suggest betting that the meeting will turn out to be grassroots. 

Our prediction - total under 188.5 points for 1.78 in Mostbet.

In a recent friendly match, New Zealand lost to Canada by 31 points. In the confrontation with the United States, defeat can turn out to be more devastating.

Prediction - USA with a handicap (-34.5) points. In Mostbet, such a bet can be placed for 1.66.

53.5 points is too high. Even with such a stellar line-up as the Americans, it will be very difficult to overcome it.

Prediction  - the total of the most productive quarter is less than 53.5 points. In Mostbet, such a bet can be placed for 1.87.
