Prediction and betting tips
Germany have played well in this tournament. They have won six out of seven matches in the 2022 Eurobasket with only one in the overtimes. Germany have won three fixtures being the underdogs and were defeated only by Slovenia by eight points.
Spain have not met strong rivals apart from Lithuania in the Round of 16. However, they were defeated by Belgium in the group stage by 10 points. Spain have not shown the play of the first team in Europe and second best team in the world. They have won Germany in the last seven H2H fixtures in a row, but the teams are approximately equal in their current forms. I believe that we will see a draw by quarters this time. The same outcome has played out in all matches in the playoffs with Germany participating.
Betting prediction: Draw by quarters
Odds: 4.15 (+315 American; 63/20 Fractional)
