Poland vs Venezuela: no chance for Venezuela?
On July 28, the national teams of Poland and Venezuela square off in the third round of the Olympic volleyball tournament. We have made a prediction for this game, which you can find below.
After a difficult match against the Iranians, in which Poland lost in five sets, the Polish team gave a great performance in the second game, beating Italy in three sets. The issue of reaching the playoffs can already be considered resolved, but we don't think that Poland will be happy with just that. They need to qualify from a higher place so they can get an easier opponent in the knockouts.
Venezuela lost in the last five matches and didn't win a single set in them. At the Olympics, they were unable to stop the onslaught of Japan and Iran. Right now they don't have a chance to qualify from the group, and even Venezuela's victory in one set will be a surprise.
In the last three head-to-head matches, Venezuela maintained this handicap.
Four sets were played in two out of the last four head-to-head games.
Venezuela demonstrates good game for thier level. The team tries to act in a simple way, but this tactic bears fruit in the attack. Poland have a solid game with a minimum number of faults, and we believe that they will win this match, but that the nominal guests will keep a positive handicap.
Our prediction - Asian handicap to Venezuela (+27.5) points
Prediction: Handicap (+27,5) to Venezuela

Poland must control the game, as they have the class advantage. Venezuela will rely on teamwork, but we don't think it will help them much.
Second wager - total under 126.5 points
