Serbia v Italy: 1st Half over 36.5

Basketball - EuroBasket 2017 - 13 Sep 19:30

I think this total is managable for Italy in the first half. Usually they start either very hot or really cold and then pick up in the 2nd quarter. For example, they have scored 30 points against Finland & 27 against Georgia in the 1st quarter alone. But against Ukraine they have scored 16 points in the 1st quarter & then followed it with 27 points in the 2nd quarter. They have played 6 games in EuroBasket & in 3 of them they have scored 37 points in the 1st half (50%). Once they were 1 point shy, and other 2 times they were shooting extremely bad in the 2nd quarter (21.4% from the field in both games, while they average 42.6% in the tournament). Serbia at the other hand in 4 of 6 games in EuroBasket allowed opponents to score 37 or more points in the 1st half (66.7%). In addition, they were really bad defensively on the perimeter, allowing opponents to shoot a lot of open 3's & convert them (60/160, that's 37.5%). Only 5 teams (out of 24) in the tournament have averaged more than 37.5% from behind the arc & Italy is one of them. Italy actually lives by three & dies by three - they shoot the most 3's in the tournament (28.5 per game) & they convert them on a high clip (39.2%). Teams met in Acropolis Tournament just before EuroBasket & Italy scored 38 points in the 1st half, only converting on 4/13 (30.8%) shots from behind the arc. It's a 50/50 tip at worst, with a much better odds.
