32 countries are chasing history at the 2023 FIBA World Cup

The FIBA World Cup is next on the agenda for punters and Aussie bookmakers alike, with a packed month of basketball in store.

2023 FIBA World Cup Preview

  • 2023 FIBA World Cup gets underway, with Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines playing host
  • Spain are the defending FIBA World Cup, triumphing in China in 2019.
  • USA amongst the favourites with team littered with NBA stars.
  • The likes of France, Australia and Canada also expected to be in the mix.

The wait is almost over as the 2023 FIBA World Cup is set to get underway in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia.

With the 32 biggest basketball-playing nations in the world in the mix, it promises to be a fascinating few weeks for international betting sites, with the final played in the Philippines on 10th September 2023.

Attention within the international basketball world now turns to East Asia, with the 2023 FIBA World Cup taking place in Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

Defending champions Spain clinched their second FIBA World Cup title in China back in 2019 and they will be out to keep hold of the trophy for as long as possible.

However, there are a whole host of sides that will be looking to prize the trophy away from the Spaniards, with 32 countries from all four corners of the globe descending on the 2023 FIBA World Cup.

USA to deliver?

Inevitably, with such a pool of talent to choose from, the form and trends of the USA men’s national basketball team always creates plenty of traction with betting sites.

The 5-time winners of the event last tasted FIBA World Cup glory back in 2014 and they will be out to respond to their shock loss to Serbia in the quarter finals 2019.

Such an embarrassment of riches can prove problematic for the USA when it comes to squad selection and for 2023, coach Steve Kerr has attempted to strike a balance of youth and experience.

As is so often the case in FIBA World Cup competition, the tournament in 2023 does very much feel as it if is in the hands of the USA and that is reflected in the odds being offered by most multi betting platforms.

Currently, USA are the hot favourites to win the 2023 FIBA World Cup at $2.00 with Bet365.

France and Spain flying the European flag

In recent years, European basketball has emerged as a serious force, something that has been reflected in the results in both the FIBA World Cups and the Olympic Games.

Most betting apps are starting to identify the progression made within European basketball and France and Spain are two sides that continue to push the form.

France are yet to clinch a European or Olympic title but have clinched silver medals in both of their last outings in the respective competitions and there is a growing feeling amongst betting sites that they could go well here at the 2023 World Cup.

Spain meanwhile are the defending European and World Champions and they will once again be ready to upset the established elite here in 2023.

They perhaps don’t have the same strengths within their squad that they have had in previous years, but they are a well drilled outfit, capable of beating anyone on their day.

The chances of both France and Spain are being tracked with Victorian bookmakers and they are $11.00 and $15.00 respectively to win the 2023 FIBA World Cup with VicBet.

Australia ready to break their duck?

Outside of the archetypal favourites for FIBA World Cup glory, plenty of other countries have been catching the eye of new betting sites with their developments in the basketball playing sphere.

Australia have enjoyed a seismic transformation in basketball terms in recent times, reaching the semi-finals in both the last Olympic Games and the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

Progress will of course only be measured for the Boomers if they manage to go even further here in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia and they are being backed with plenty of reputable basketball betting apps.

Despite having a ‘Group of Death’ containing Japan, Germany and Finland, Australia are being well-backed here and they are $10.00 with BoomBet to win their maiden basketball FIBA World Cup title.

Excitement and speculation is building ahead of the 2023 FIBA World Cup in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia and all of the biggest Aussie bookmakers are springing into action.
With the 32 biggest basketball playing nations in the world in action, it promises to be a FIBA World Cup to remember, with the likes of the USA, Spain, France and Australia amongst the favourites for glory.
