France vs Slovenia: Prediction and Betting Tips
France playing in their best form
Les Blues will take credit for being the only team so far in this year’s Olympics to have beaten the USA, the favorites to win the gold in every tournament they play in. The two-time silver medal winners have been extremely determined in their matches to use their full capabilities and reach as far as possible in this Olympics Games.
Rudy Gobert, Nicolas Batum, and Evan Fournier have been very influential in France’s games. Coach Collet has found a great formula by which all players excel in their roles which led to the French team registering four straight wins. Against Italy, Les Bleus were very decisive under the paint with the presence of Gobert and Batum grabbing 49 rebounds 14 of them offensively.
France Key Stats
- France have scored on average 85.8 points per game in Tokyo 2020

Can Slovenia keep their great form against stronger sides?
Luca Doncic’s 48 points in Slovenia’s opening game against Argentina is still the best individual performance in men’s basketball games in Tokyo 2020. Slovenia have amazing stats in their field goals made, rebounds, and the points they scored in the four matches they played.
Doncic and co eased past Germany in the quarter-finals. Zoran Dragic was the best scorer of his team and the game with 27 points hitting five of seven from the arc of three points. Doncic added 20 points and 11 assists. Slovenia play a very quick game and rotate the ball until they find the open shot. It will be very interesting to see what will Slovenia’s performance be like against tougher opposition.
Slovenia Key Stats
- The field goal percentage by Slovenia in Tokyo is 63%
- The average number of assists per game by Slovenia is 22
- Slovenia have scored 105.8 points per game
France vs Slovenia Prediction
Only three teams have won all four games so far in the Olympics, Australia, France, and Slovenia. All of them are present in the semi-finals of the tournament. Add to them a USA team with their NBA stars and we have the best possible final four showdowns.
France have never played better than they are at the moment. They have all the ingredients to win the gold and they proved that in their opening match against the US. Collets’ team never surrenders as despite trailing in many of their matches, they were able to win.
The same goes for Slovenia, who have a host of vet talented players led by 22-year-old Luca Doncic. High hopes will be put on Doncic to put on one of his top performances to guide his team to the gold medal match.
The odds are quite equal for both teams to win. Slovenia are slight favorites with odds of 1.77 while France’s win has 2.05. We think the focus will be on defense by both teams and that will lead to a low-scoring game.
