2022 FIBA EuroBasket Sleeper Picks

One team we expect to go all in is Croatia. The squad is desperate to put the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 European Qualifiers behind after a disappointing run. The return of forwards Bojan Bogdanovic and Ivia Zubaz hardly made a mark in their FIBA EuroBasket 2025 pre-qualifiers. Nevertheless, head coach Damir Mulaomerović looks forward to adding Dario Saric to the lineup when he recovers from a long-term injury.

Croatia is in a tricky Group C. They need to put their best foot forward and pressure favorites Italy and Greece. The rest of the field shouldn’t give the 1992 Olympic Games silver medalists much of a problem. A competent roster featuring several NBA heavy-hitters should give Croatia the attacking advantage it needs over Ukraine, Great Britain, and Estonia. However, getting past top-five favorites Greece and Italy present elements up in the air.

Poland is in a tough Group D, packed with favorites such as Finland, the Czech Republic, Israel, and Serbia. It’s safe to say that this particular collection of teams will bring bettors and basketball fans edge-of-your-seat action from start to end. As we look past the favorites on paper, Nitrobetting gives credit where credit is due, and that is the Poland national team.

Following an impressive run at the 2019 World Cup but dropping the ball on the Second Round of qualifying for the 2023 installment, Poland’s early departure surprised many. Polish coach Igor Milicic looks for a bounce-back run at EuroBasket. There’s no shortage of talent on the roster and the possible entry of Baylor star forward Jeremy Sochan gives a different dynamic on both ends.

The Lions’ biggest test in Group A comes in the form of three-time EuroBasket gold medalists Spain and 2001 silver medalists Turkey, both of which rank within the top-ten tournament favorites. Belgium is on a mission to win its first-ever medal at EuroBasket, let alone deliver positive results on the international stage. Nonetheless, it’s exciting to find a young, promising group of players making its first mark at the 2022 FIBA EuroBasket.

Belgium enters the tournament with plenty of momentum. Head coach Dario Gjergja and his boys are at the end of a productive summer. With a more experienced and diverse unit, the likes of Retin Obasohan and Ismael Bako are expected to shine and play pivotal roles in the upcoming 2022 FIBA EuroBasket.
