The line on today’s game has gone from 24 1/2 points to 25. And the over/under is 168.5.
If you think France can win by 1-to-5 points, you can get 50-1 odds.
Myself, I will be in the 19th district of Paris watching the game on TV with the Frenchies (at a place partly owned by Ronny Turiaf and Boris Diaw), wearing the stars and stripes and gathering material for Diary of the Uncredentialed Edition III.
And for an epic Olympic basketball preview column, you can read this and see my unconventional pick for the silver medal.
