The men’s basketball tournament at the Tokyo Summer Olympics moves into the quarterfinal round. Team USA recovered from a loss to France in the opener to make the round and remains the favorite to win the gold medal. Luka Doncic has carried Slovenia to a position in the knockout round and has the team as second-favorite according to DraftKings Sportsbook at +500. Usual suspects Australia, Argentina, Spain and France are also in the quarterfinal round. Here’s how bettors and fans can tune into the action.

Men’s basketball Olympics Monday, August 2

Germany vs. Slovenia

TV channel: TBD
Live stream: NBCOlympics.com
Spread: Slovenia -14
Over/under: 182.5
Moneyline odds: Germany +700, Slovenia -1125

Doncic has been the shining star of these Games and has Slovenia vying for a medal. He’s going to command most of Germany’s attention in this match and will need some supporting contributions. The Germans qualified for the knockout round despite finishing third in the group and are big underdogs in this one.

Men’s basketball Olympics Tuesday, August 3

USA vs. Spain

Time: 12:40 a.m. ET
TV channel: TBD
Live stream: NBCOlympics.com
Spread: USA -12
Over/under: 179.5
Moneyline odds: USA -760, Spain +525

This is the banner matchup of the quarterfinals with the Americans entering as strong favorites. However, Spain has plenty of quality NBA talent and Olympic experience. Expect this game to be closer than the spread and moneyline odds indicate at the moment. Kevin Durant is USA’s leader in points at the Olympics and is looking for a third consecutive gold medal.

France vs. Italy

Time: 4:20 a.m. ET
TV channel: USA
Live stream: NBCOlympics.com
Spread: France -8.5
Over/under: 169.5
Moneyline odds: France -400, Italy +300

France scored the big upset of the competition in the opener against Team USA on its way to winning all three group stage games. Rudy Gobert, Evan Fournier and Nicolas Batum form a great trio for the French, who will be looking to grab a medal for the first time since the 2000 Games.

Argentina vs. Australia

Time: 8:00 a.m. ET
TV channel: USA
Live stream: NBCOlympics.com
Spread: Australia -8.5
Over/under: 171.5
Moneyline odds: Argentina +300, Australia -400

Australia will be without Aron Baynes after the big man suffered a neck injury due to a fall in the team bathroom. Argentina is usually a big contender to medal, but doesn’t have the veterans and NBA talent this time around. Expect the Aussies to get the job done here and advance to the semis.
