Thursday's friendly game preview features a live stream of Spain vs. U.K. as they play the second game of a Basketball World 2013, back-to-back odds matchup from Pabellon Principe Felipe in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain.
Opening tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. EST (12 p.m. PST/9 p.m. local time) and will be streaming live on ESPN-3/Watch-ESPN Live Stream at the top of the hour.
The fact that this is the final tune-up before the start of EuroBasket 2013 gives this game added significance for Spain and the UK.
Both teams will depart for Slovenia in the coming days and rest-assured, neither one wants to make the trip with an "L" in the last day of friendly play. However, one can be certain that this game means a lot more to Great Britain.
The Britons find themselves in desperate need of momentum heading into next month's big tourney. Needless to say, they'll need to avoid being swept tonight in Zaragoza in order to accomplish that.
Led by NBA stars, Ricky Rubio (15 points) and Rudy Fernandez (12 points), the two-time, defending EuroBasket champs remain unbeaten in 2013 friendly play with a 80-67 victory over Great Britain last night.
The thrashing forces basketball oddsmakers to list Spain as a whopping 25½-point favorites, while the U.K. enjoys a +25-point cushion in the finale.
Furthermore, the OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 152 points and alternate basketball betting lines list Spain at 1/66 straight-up and Great Britain at a lopsided 66/1 odds.
