Odds (To Win Outright):USA -125, Canada +450, Germany +750, Lithuania +850

Anthony Edwards -118

Edwards was tabbed as ‘the guy’ ahead of the tournament by Team USA head coach Steve Kerr.

While the Minnesota Timberwolves is only averaging 16.3 PPG in three games this tournament, he is expected to be Team USA’s leading shot-taker through the knockout rounds.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander +350

Gilgeous-Alexander is the bona fide leader of Team Canada, who lost the services of Jamal Murray just days before the tournament.

SGA has led Canada to three-straight blowout wins and the top spot in Group H, averaging 22 PPG and 5.7 APG along the way.

Luka Doncic +600

Bogdan Bogdanovic +900

Dennis Schroder +1000

Jonas Valanciunas +1200
