So the U.S. men's basketball team beats China by a healthy 31 points. So when they make the odds for the Angola game, they put the Angolans as 44-point underdogs. I can understand the rationale, but that's a lot of points.
I'm not a betting man, but in my head, I thought 50-point victory. (Recall, the "Dream Team" whipped these guys by 68 points 16 years ago.
For the record, the American team won by 21 points and didn't come close to covering.
