Eurobasket has allowed active NBA players to participate since 1991, making it a truly professional level competition

There’s much more on the line than simple bragging rights in Europe. EuroBasket has always doubled as a qualifying tournament for either the Summer Olympic Games or the FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Now that EuroBasket has switched from a bi-annual format (every 2 years) to once every 4 years, it will strictly serve as an Olympic qualifier.

The 2017 tournament will be hosted by 4 different countries: Israel, Romania, Finland and Turkey. Only the group stage will be split up across 4 nations, however. Once the tournament reaches the knockout rounds, all games will be contested at the Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul, Turkey. With crowd support such a big part of European basketball, the 16,000-seat stadium could provide the Turks with a significant advantage later in the tournament.

Teams are divided into 4 pools, with the top 4 finishers in each advancing to the playoff stage.

Here’s a look at odds for all 24 teams in this year’s tournament, as posted at BetOnline.
• Spain: +150
