EuroBasket 2022 has produced plenty of entertainment already and is set to heat up even more as we reach the semi-final stage.
Ahead of Friday’s showdowns we have taken a look at the latest EuroBasket winner odds for the four teams still left in the tournament.
FRANCE @ 13/10
France got off to the worst possible start when beaten 76-63 by Germany in their Group B opener but are now the favourites to go all the way. They managed to reach the knockout stage despite also losing to Slovenia and were heading for defeat against Turkey in the round of 16 but took the match to overtime in the dying seconds and then eked out an 87-86 victory thanks to Rudy Gobert’s heroics. France also needed a late rally to beat Italy 93-85 so are living dangerously but they are clear favourites to beat Poland in the semi-finals.
GERMANY @ 19/10
Germany are on the brink of just a second medal in 13 EuroBasket appearances and are eyeing a repeat of their sole European title in 1993. Enjoying home-court advantage in Berlin, Germany ended the hopes of previous favourites Greece in the quarter-finals with a 107-96 victory, helped by the ejection of Giannis Antetokounmpo. Germany’s only defeat so far came against Slovenia during the group stage. Former Atlanta Hawks, LA Lakers and Boston Celtics point guard Dennis Schroder is their star man and as a free agent is doing his best to attract would-be suitors.
SPAIN @ 18/5
Spain are consistent EuroBasket semi-finalists and reached the last four for an 11th consecutive tournament with a 100-90 victory over Finland on Tuesday. Their squad has had an overhaul since the Olympics but they look strong and were impressive in the second half against the Finns, having trailed by 15 points at one stage. Lorenzo Brown’s decision to give up US citizenship and play for Spain has paid off so far and he has elevated La Roja to a higher level ahead of their semi-final against Germany.
POLAND @ 11/1
Poland’s EuroBasket winner odds have been slashed after a huge upset saw them beat Slovenia in the quarter-finals. The Poles roared into a 23-point lead during the second quarter and held on for a 90-87 victory to reach the last four for the first time since 1971. They had been the only one of the quarter-finalists to end the group stage with a negative points difference and they remain the outsiders ahead of their meeting with France but will believe anything is possible after seeing off Slovenia.
