US to win Group +300
US to qualify -200
I am pretty sure the US will at worst qualify, so I bet 1 unit on US to win the group and 3 units on them to qualify. So as long as they qualify I will cover my other bet and make 1/2 unit and if they win then I make 4.5 units.

They've already won the spanish cup and the euroleague, and they were huge favourites to win the spanish league too. They were facing Caja Laboral, and their win was pretty much a foregone conclusion. I expected Caja Laboral to make it somewhat competitive games (and thanks to that I made some money with the handicap lines, which were way too high), but I never saw what actually happened coming: Caja Laboral beat BarÃ§a twice in Barcelona. So now BarÃ§a MUST win all three games or they'll lose (the final series in Spain is shorter than in NBA). I just can't see anybody beating Barcelona 3 out of 3 times, so I'm convinced they're gonna win at least the upcoming game, which is played tomorrow, so I'm betting on the -3,5 handicap.

Sure, Brazil was pretty much one-ending the entire game, but sheesh those guys were quick and really disciplined. I wouldn't be suprised if they pull a win from that group.
