USA has ranked number one in Group K and their points higher in Brazil and the Czech Republic. The final group games will take place on Monday and the USA will qualify for the quarter-finals. USA have won 4 of their matches so far in the 2019 FIBA World Cup, with Brazil going on to win at least 21 points. The USA nearly lost to Turkey in the first group but still prevailed and they won against Greece with a 16-point advantage.
Brazil won all three of their matches. The only team that beat them was the Czech Republic in their group but they nearly lost to Greece, they only won with one point. They lost three times in four quarters against Greece so my prediction is that they will have a hard time to beat the USA.
The USA have won all four of their games in this tournament.
Brazil have won three out of four but so nearly lost to Greece.
The USA have won the last two World Cup tournaments.
