Sportsbook Lines: Team USA vs. Turkey

The female edition of Team USA basketball faces its most difficult test in these games to date when they meet Turkey tonight. The game in London is scheduled to begin at 5:15ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network.

Both teams are a perfect 2-0 entering this contest. Team USA has dominated it's first two opponents. In the Olympic opener, the ladies got off to a slow and somewhat sloppy start, but recovered to defeat Croatia 81-56.

A tired group of Americans, who got back to their rooms at 3am following the opening ceremonies, allowed Croatia to hang around through 3 quarters. The Croatians didn't exactly come out on fire either, missing their initial 14 shots. It was just 53-49 early in the final quarter before the U.S. woke up and went on a 16-0 run essentially sealing the victory. Check the Sportsbook Odds for the 2012 Olympic Games.

On Monday, things were back to normal as Team USA trounced Angola 90-38. Candace Parker led the way with 14 points and 12 boards for the Americans. That made it 35 straight Olympic victories for the United States women.

Turkey did not blow out its competition, but still came away with two wins. They beat Angola 72-50 and the Czech Republic 61-57.

Turkey has a solid front court featuring Quanitra Hollingsworth who played at Virginia Commonwealth and Emine Palazoglu who was their most effective player in the first two contests. Palazoglu had 13 points to lead her team versus Angola and 11 against the Czechs. Look for Hollingsworth to be around 10 points if she's on her game.  Start your Online Sportsbook action on the Olympic Games.
