The last two international friendlies have not been kind to Team USA. After losing 90-87 to Nigeria on Saturday, the American basketball team followed it up with a 91-83 loss to Australia on Monday. Even though these international friendly matchups are not the actual 2020 Tokyo Olympics, you can't blame people for second-guessing whether or not Team USA can bring home the gold.

Team USA's gold medal odds have plummeted following the team's loss to Australia. After opening at -750 odds to win gold, the Americans' odds have worsened to -370, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Meanwhile, the Australian's victory gave their gold medal odds a significant boost. Australia opened up at +1200 to win gold in men's basketball, however, their odds now sit at +850 (second) following their win.

Here's a look at the rest of the odds to win the gold medal this summer.
