Group G Basketball World Cup Odds
Who wins the group G at Basketball World Cup 2019?
FIBA World Cup 2019
The group G will be hosted in Shenzhen and will contain teams such as France, Germany, Dominican Republic, and Jordan.
On first look, if there is now surprises, France and Germany will finish the group in the first two places.
With no doubt, France is the strongest team in the group with such well-known players and our review of this group will start with their team.
France created a star-studded squad for their FIBA Basketball World Cup campaign in China, one that has giant center Rudy Gobert, veteran forward Nic Batum and combo-guard Nando de Colo alongside Fournier, Vincent Poirier and Mathias Lessort.
A top-two finish would put them into Second Round Group L, where they would square off against the first two sides from a Group H that consists of Canada, Senegal, Lithuania, and Australia.
The team has a lot of potential and all the tools to be ambitious. France's senior national team has had great results and won medals in the last couple of years, and they can maintain the same dynamic.
Germany are back at the FIBA World Cup after missing Spain 2014 and they had back-to-back Quarter-Finals showings in 2002 and 2006, even taking third place in Indianapolis 17 years ago. In order to have a chance to repeat that, Germany will have to first grab one of the top two spots in Group G and then finish in the top two of Group L.
Schroder, who averaged 23.5 points, 7.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in four games in the European Qualifiers is the new team leader with Daniel Theis.
Theis, who averaged 10.9 points and 6.3 rebounds to help the national team advance to the Quarter-Finals of FIBA EuroBasket 2017.
They will have to do a lot for their fans after Nowitzki’s retirement.
With Nestor 'Che' Garcia announced as new Head Coach, the Dominican Republic will travel to Shenzhen to begin the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019.
The experience of 'Che' García also includes jobs as a coach in the professional leagues of Puerto Rico, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Uruguay, Mexico, and Spain, where he directed Montakit Fuenlabrada.
The Dominican Republic still did not announce their team but in case Karl Anthony Towns and Al Horford decide to join the team, their chances will grow so much.
After the Falcons missed the bus to the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain, many thought that Jordanian basketball was headed for the doldrums, but their return to the quadrennial event is proof that they remain among the elite basketball countries in Asia.
Jordan will make just their second appearance at the World Cup after qualifying to the 2010 edition in Turkey, placing 23rd overall. This time around, Jordan are raising their expectations. They will go to China with their barrels loaded and ready to spring some surprises against their higher-ranked foes.
For this staging of the World Cup, Jordan are aiming for no less than a spot in the second round and to formally qualify to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.
They don’t miss self-confidence but the reality is something else.
