Luka Doncic was the best scorer in the previous stage and in the last H2H game against Poland. Also, he has scored 118 points in the last three matches, which is an unbelievable result.
Poland projected lineup:
- Point guard: A. J. Slaughter

- Center: Aleksander Balcerowski
Mateusz Ponitka was MVP in the most recent match by finishing it with a +26 efficiency. Also, he was the best scorer for his team in the last match against Slovenia.
Prediction and betting tips
Slovenia with Luka Doncic is unstoppable. They have won five out of six matches in this tournament and lost a single one only by four points. Doncic have dropped at least 35 points in each of the last three matches and was the best scorer in the last H2H match against Poland by winning it with a 112-77 score.
Poland have not met strong rivals in this tournament apart from Serbia in the group stage. They were lucky to qualify for this stage, but they were defeated by Serbia and Finland by 27 and 30 points, respectively, which can not be called confident play. Also, they have a streak of four losses against Slovenia. I believe that Slovenia will win all quarters in this match.
Besides, under 14.5 points by Mateusz Ponitka looks safe too. The same outcome has played out in five of the last seven matches. Also, he has scored 13.2 points per match on average in this tournament.
Betting prediction: Slovenia to win all quarters – Yes
Odds: 4.00 (+300 American; 3/1 Fractional)
Betting prediction: Under 14.5 points by Mateusz Ponitka
Odds: 2.00 (+100 American; 1/1 Fractional)
