USA vs Australia basketball odds, spread, line, over/under, and betting info for the Olympics semifinal match on Thursday morning.
Has Team USA gotten its groove back?
That’s the big question not only bettors are asking, but Americans are asking ahead of the next game in the knockout bracket of the Tokyo Olympics. Team USA got off to a horribly sluggish start, losing exhibition games and then getting embarrassed once the games started last week.
But since then, Team USA has gelled — which is no surprise that it took a while for guys who just finished an NBA season on separate teams to create chemistry as a unit. It looked like the mighty had fallen, but the sleeping giant might have just woken up.
Kevin Durant looks unstoppable, the role players around him are on fire and the Americans are rolling into a semifinal showdown with Australia that feels more winnable than it did a week ago.
Even the start against Spain on Tuesday morning was slow, but Team USA bounced back brilliantly to advance to the semifinal. Should the luck continue, Team USA is looking at a matchup against France or the seemingly unstoppable Slovenian side in the gold medal match.
