The heavily favored USA women’s basketball team opens Olympic play against Nigeria early Tuesday morning. The Americans are going for a seventh straight gold medal. The last time USA didn’t win gold was the 1992 Games. You can catch the game at 12:40 a.m. ET on USA.

If you are not in front of a television, NBCOlympics.com will live stream the match. You’ll need a cable subscription for access. If you don’t have one, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the match. You can also watch on the NBC Sports mobile app.

Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi headline a stacked USA women’s team looking to march to the gold medal again. The Americans are the clear favorites in the competition and many bettors are expecting them to coast to victory.

Nigeria is not expected to be a medal contender, but is getting some betting action on gold medal futures due to the insane odds at +10000. Louisville Cardinals point guard Elizabeth Balogun is a name to watch for Nigeria in this match, as is Erika Ogwumike.
