The London Olympics are about to come to a close with the men's basketball gold medal to be decided in mere minutes. Team USA will take on Spain for the top prize in London with the Yanks tipping off as big favorites at 10:00 a.m. ET.
According to Bovada yesterday, the U.S. squad was 21-point favorites to lock up the gold. This U.S. team has certainly shown the ability to roll over any opponent when they get rolling. Spain has plenty of familiar NBA names and a nice size advantage around the bucket. But led by LeBron James and Kevin Durant, Team USA has a size and athletic advantage everywhere else on the court. Should be plenty of fun to watch.
