Canada vs Iran: can Canada qualify for the playoffs?
On July 28, the national teams of Canada and Iran will face off in the third round of the Olympic volleyball tournament. We have made a prediction for this game, which you can find below.
Canada national team was defeated in two games at the start of the Olympic Games. In a bitter struggle, the team yielded to the Italians and also lost to the hosts of the Olympics, Japan, in four sets. Now, to get into the playoffs, Canada need to defeat the Iranian national team.
Iran national team won a sensational victory over Poland in five sets. In the second round of the group stage, they managed to crush the Venezuelans without losing a single set. At the moment, the Iranians are one of the main contenders for first place in the group.
In the last two matches between the teams, this bet played.
Four or more sets were played in 4 out of the last 5 head-to-head matches.
The Iranians have an advantage in this match because its result doesn't really matter to them. Even if Iran lose, they will still have a good chance of qualifying for the playoffs. As for the Canadians, their further participation in the tournament is at stake. Sure, they can then win over both Poland and Venezuela, but that seems very unlikely.
We believe that four sets will be played in this match: this is exactly how many sets were played in the last two head-to-head games. We suggest playing the total under.
Our prediction is total under 187.5
Prediction: Total under 187.5

The Iranians look like the favourites. They don't have the pressure that Canada has, and that will allow them to show their best game. Taking into account the odds, we suggest betting on the victory of the Iranian national team.
