Australia are one of eight teams remaining in the 2019 FIBA World Cup and will play the Czech Republic in the Quarter Finals on Wednesday at 11:00pm AEST.

The Boomers defeated France 100-98 courtesy of Patty Mills dropping 30 points and Aron Baynes 21. Matthew Dellavedova led the Boomers with nine assists. Evan Fournier top-scored with 31 points for France and Nando De Colo was excellent with 26 points on 11-16 shooting. 

With victory, the Boomers landed themselves a knockout match against the Czech Republic while the French team bumps into the USA. 

The Czech Republic results for the tournament are as follows:

Lost 67-88 vs USA
Won 89-76 vs Japan
Won 91-76 vs Turkey
Won 93-71 vs Brazil
Lost 77-84 vs Greece

Australia are undefeated with wins over:

Canada 108-92
Senegal 81-68
Lithuania 87-82
Dominican Republic 82-76
France 100-98

The Czech Republic have either won or lost by less than 10 points in all bar one match and that was against tournament favourites USA who are $1.80 to win the 2019 FIBA World Cup. Australia have won by margins of five, six and two points in their last three matches.

We expect the Czech Republic to stay in touch with the Boomers and they could keep the final margin in single figures. Jaromir Bohacik is averaging 17.4 points per game and Tomas Satoransky is averaging 15.2, six rebounds and 7.4 assists. The Chicago Bulls shooting guard averaged 8.9 points and 5 assists for the Washington Wizards last season in the NBA.

The Boomers will rely on Mills to do the bulk of the scoring and he sits third for the tournament with an average of 21.8 points per game. Dellavedova and Ingles will distribute the ball well to their teammates with both men averaging more than six assists per game. 

We are happy to back the Czech Republic with a 10.5 head start.
