It was obvious that today's match-up between Team USA men's basketball and Tunisia was likely going to be the easiest opponent that the U.S. would face, but to open up with the odds that Vegas has on the match -- well, today's game is not likely to be a pretty one for Tunisia. This is as close to a shellacking at the 2012 London Olympics as you will find.

Kevin Durant and LeBron James should be interesting to watch today as they lead the team against the clearly inferior opponent. Will they look past them? Will they completely dominate as predicted? We'll find out starting at 4:30pm CT.
