The Men's USA Basketball team has suffered back-to-back losses during international friendlies this week, but it is still the prohibitive favorite to walk away on top of the Summer Olympics.


We set gold medal odds for men's basketball today, and the USA is a -600.

Australia, which defeated the USA squad yesterday, is second on the board with +900 odds.

Nigeria, after beating Team USA as a 30-point underdog on Sunday, comes in with +3300 odds.

The USA team was an 18.5-point favorite in their friendlies game against Argentina Tuesday night. 

Team USA did bounce back, winning 108-80 in Las Vegas on Tuesday to avoid what would have been the first three-game losing streak.
