Team USA will look to get back on track at the Olympics in a matchup with Iran. After a shocking loss to France, the Americans cannot afford to slip up again if they hope to reach the knockout stage. Fans and bettors can catch the game at 12:40 a.m. ET.

If you are not in front of a television, Peacock and 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.

Team USA shot poorly in the loss to France, with Kevin Durant and Damian Lillard combining to go 7-22 from the field. Jrue Holiday provided a spark off the bench, but the Americans were unable to close out the game despite having several great opportunities to do so. This team should not have problems with Iran but anything can happen at the Games.

Iran will be looking to spring the biggest shocker in Olympics history. The underdogs are +42 against the spread according to DraftKings Sportsbook in this matchup. It’ll be a testament to Iran’s development as a basketball nation if it can keep the score close for a majority of the game.
