Belgium lost with 5 points against Canada but for me they were a bit impressed about all the fans in the stadium. After 15 minutes they started playing better but the difference was then already 16 points. They came very good back but Canada was for me the best team of all the teams in this group. I don’t see them losing a game. I saw both games live and for me the level of playing is this game was much better than in the game between Sweden and Japan. Belgium had problems against the physical play of Canada. Even Meesseman had problems against them but for this game against Japan I don’t see this happen, Japan only have Tokashiki who can stop one of the centers of Belgium so Linskens or Messeman will take benefit of this. Allemand was shooting 0 on 5 three pointers but I don’t see this happen again.
Japan won with 21 points against Sweden but Sweden was nowhere in that game. Japan has for me only 3 good players and this were the topscorers in the first game: Tokashiki, Motohashi and Motokawa but the rest of the team couldn’t impress me and Belgium must be able to stop these players. Belgium has for me more offensive potential. In the first game of the evening the stadium was not fully filled so the atmosphere was different than in the second game between Belgium and Canada. Now this will be totally different and I think this will also have an impact on the way of playing of Japan.
Belgium is playing at home and this will have a good impact on this game. Belgium has for me more quality and I see them winning this game with 8 à 10 points. Odds are going up and down again the whole day and now there is again value on Belgium and limits are better than yesterday. I take the handicap Belgium -3.
