The FIBA World Cup is right around the corner with a fair share of NBA talent participating.

The latest: Canada are slim favourites to win Group H with France right behind them. The United States — to no one's surprise — are massive favourites to win their group while Slovenia, led by Luka Doncic holds -1,430 odds to advance out of Group F.

Canada's odds: Group H

Team Winner

If everyone on the roster suits up (we're looking at you, Jamal Murray) this should be the best team Canada's ever put on the court.

But even with Murray's absence, this team has looked solid. The Canadians mounted a sizeable comeback in the DBB SuperCup final in Hamburg to beat Germany 113-112 behind a massive RJ Barrett performance.

France has a solid team, too, behind the likes of Rudy Gobert and Evan Fournier. The 2023 No. 1 overall pick Victor Wembanyama will not be participating.

Group A

Dominican Republic+175
Philippines +2,000

No. 10 FIBA-ranked Italy are sizeable -250 favourites to win Group A and that makes sense considering they're going up against the Dominican Republic (No. 23), Philippines (No. 40) and Angola (No. 41).

The Italians have one NBA player, Simone Fontecchio, on their roster.

FIBA World Cup odds: Group B

Puerto Rico+1,100
South Sudan+1,500

Jokic just carried the Denver Nuggets to their first title in franchise history, and he'll be skipping out on this tournament to rest up for their title defence.

Still, Serbia is a massive -1,430 favourite to win Group B with NBA players like Aleksej Pokusevski, Nikola Jovic and Bogdan Bogdanovic leading the charge. Nikola Milutinov is considered one of the best big men in this tournament.

Group C

New Zealand+2,000

The United States was bounced out of this tournament by France in the quarterfinal back in 2019. That put to bed any chances of a three-peat.

This roster doesn't have the type of star power you'd typically see by the Americans in the Olympics, but the team is still very strong. Brandon Ingram, Jalen Brunson, Tyrese Haliburton, Anthony Edwards, and Paolo Banchero are notables. Austin Reaves has been hooping, too.

Greece will be without Giannis Antetokounmpo, so don't expect any resistance here.

Group D


This is one of the closer groups we'll see at the World Cup.

Lithuania is favoured with Jonas Valanciunas headlining the roster. Montenegro (+225) and Mexico (+650) are both within earshot, though.

Nikola Vucevic took a huge step for the Chicago Bulls last season and he'll lead Montenegro into battle.

Group E

Finland +650

Josh Giddey, Joe Ingles, Matthew Dellavedova, Patty Mills and Matisse Thybulle headline a pretty strong Australia roster.

Germany's team isn't a pushover, though. Dennis Schroder has been lighting it up in pre-tournament while the Wagner brothers are also on the team, as is Daniel Theis.

Group F

Cape Verde+5,000

Luka Doncic skipped Slovenia's pre-tournament game against the United States, but he should be playing when this tournament starts.

That's all you need to know for why Slovenia is a -1,430 favourite in a Group F where no other team sits inside FIBA's top 15 ranks.

FIBA World Cup odds: Group G

Ivory Coast+5,000

Spain and Brazil are two basketball-hungry countries, so expect plenty of passion in Group G.

Juancho Hernangomez, star of Hustle, will be playing alongside his brother Willy for Spain. Ricky Rubio and Co. fill out that roster.

Former Toronto Raptors first-round pick Bruno Caboclo will play for Brazil.
