USA  was looking forward to grab the gold at the FIBA world cup this year but not everything went according to plan. The team got ousted by France after being nearly unbeatable.

This is the first time the team failed at capturing gold at a major international event since the 2006 world championships. France beat the team 89-79, in the quarterfinals. USA has now kissed goodbye to the gold.

In the quarter final match, Evan Fournier scored 22 points, Rudy Gobert scored 21 and 16 rebounds. It is unbelievable that the win streak of USA came to an end. The team had won 58 consecutive tournament games in FIBA and Olympic competition with NBA Players.

US was about to create history by winning three consecutive world cups after winning three Olympic golds. But France stole that dream away by beating the team. In the tournament that took place in China, now the team can only finish in the fifth spot.

Gobert is disappointed by the loss. He said that the team had come here to win the gold. But in the end If you do not win then it doesn’t count.

The turning point in the game was when Americans came scoreless on the six consecutive possessions. They did not take control and France took over from there.

Their season sadly came to an end. And even though many are speculating about who was there on the team and who wasn’t. But Coach Pop believes on how to focus on what you have.

In the first half France was 21-12, even when Gobert  found his way to the line many times he couldn’t capitalize on it. Even after the free throws Gobert had for US and the lead into the fourth the team came up short.

The loss is hard on the team that is used to winning matches and tournaments.

A couple of years back when sports betting market was slowly taking pace several sports publishers initiated in giving utmost editorial coverage to the stream. There were content verticals designed which made it a point to exclusively cover only those news and information that were related to sports betting.

Publishers like Bleacher Report, ESPN and Sports Illustrated are the ones who started the trend of highlighting the do’s and don’ts with other relevant pieces of information in world of sports betting. In 2017 ‘The Action Network’ was established by the Chernin Group. This Sports Media Company ensured that their news articles are solely dedicated to cover sports betting and bonuses like Betclic betting bonus.

However with the passage of time it has been observed that mere coverage is not enough. Gone are the days when people would read articles or watch videos from the publishers to lay bets. There is huge gap. However, the legalization of sports betting has enabled publishers to build a revenue stream for themselves. It is therefore now publishers are entering the sports betting business themselves.

Thanks to the uplift of ban on sports betting by the Supreme Court which really made things work for the broadcasters. Recently media companies like Fox Sports and theScore just rolled out their own sports betting apps last week. Apart from this another monster Barstool Sports introduced a standalone site – ‘Barstool Bets’. This site gives an opportunity to the contestants to play free of cost. Then ‘DraftKings Nation’ is a new a sports betting publication launched by Vox Media jointly with DraftKings.

Hope the new efforts of these media companies are beneficial to the gambling aficionados.
