Shane’s Free Pick
This really feels like a let down spot for Germany. After Germany found so much success against the United States, that really felt like their championship. Serbia is going to get close to that 62 percent from the field again here, and that is going to be the difference here. Germany’s defense is going to really struggle here, and that will be the difference as Serbia will get the job done. Back Serbia against the spread.
