Keep reading for a detailed look at the WC basketball betting odds. We’ll also summarise the competition’s history and suggest some vital betting tips to help you maximise your enjoyment.

World Basketball Championship Bets: An Essential Overview

FIBA WC 2023 odds are the latest option for a rich basketball-playing history. The competition launched in 1950 and is usually played every four years (although the scheduling can change to avoid conflicting with international football tournaments).

The schedule involves 32 teams from five confederations: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. The US and Yugoslavia are the most successful teams in the competition’s history, each winning the trophy five times.

Previous World Basketball Championships

Many analysts expected the US to win a third consecutive championship in 2019, but a poor showing opened the door for Spain to pick up their second trophy. The Spaniards followed up the impressive tournament with victory in the 2022 EuroBasket, confirming themselves as arguably the world’s best basketball nation over the past few years.

World Basketball Championship odds have typically been dominated by big teams like the US, Spain, and Serbia (formerly part of the 20th-century juggernauts Yugoslavia). Nevertheless, several other promising nations have significantly improved over the past decade. For example, Greece, Lithuania, Turkey, and Argentina have all come close in recent competitions. As a result, WC basketball betting odds have rarely been more exciting.

FIBA WC 2023 Odds: Group Structure & Key Dates

FIBA WC 2023 odds cover eight groups in the first round:

Group A: Angola, Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Italy
Group B: South Sudan, Serbia, China, Puerto Rico
Group C: USA, Jordan, Greece, New Zealand
Group D: Egypt, Mexico, Montenegro, Lithuania
Group E: Germany, Finland, Australia, Japan
Group F: Slovenia, Cape Verde, Georgia, Venezuela
Group G: Iran, Spain, Côte d’Ivoire, Brazil
Group H: Canada, Latvia, Lebanon, France

The top two teams from each group enter a second group stage to determine which nations reach the knockout round. Meanwhile, all countries that failed to qualify for the next step play classification matches to determine their finishing position.

Check below for the vital dates to bear in mind when placing World Basketball Championship bets:

Group Stage: August 25th–30th
Second Group Stage Round: September 1st–3rd
Quarter-Finals: September 5th–6th
Semi-Finals: September 8th
Final: September 10th

Add the above to your calendar so you don’t miss out on any World Basketball Championship odds possibilities.

FIBA WC 2023 Odds: Favourites

FIBA WC 2023 odds tend to swing in Team USA’s favour, with most analysts predicting the rejuvenated American team to sweep to victory. None of the players on the young and dynamic roster have ever played international basketball at this stage, so they certainly aren’t guaranteed a win.

Canada has emerged as surprise contenders, with the nation hoping its best-ever collection of players could earn them an unprecedented first trophy. Elsewhere, France and Australia certainly have enough talent to challenge, while Luka Doncic’s Slovenia are also in with a chance. But you can never write off the 2019 winners, Spain, and long-established basketball titans Serbia.
