Group A
15:00 Netherlands (-22) vs Cuba Video Link
18:00 Slovenia (-5) vs Angola Video Link
20:30 Serbia vs Norway (-6.5) Video Link 

The Netherlands should have no problem with Cuba. Slovenia had a disastrous 2nd half yesterday vs Norway and will hope to get back on the winning track vs Angola. Norway and Serbia is a battle of unbeatens, although Serbia has yet to play a challenging foe.

Group B
15:00 S Korea (-1) vs Brazil Video Link
19:00 France (-25.5) vs Australia Video Link
20:30 Denmark (-1.5) vs Germany  Video Link  (With Commentary from Paul Bray)

Group B is a pretty interesting group at this point with every team but Australia garnering at least 1 point in the first 2 matches. Both the S Korea – Brazil and the Denmark – Germany matches are worth checking out.

Group C
15:00 Hungary vs Montenegro (-1) Video Link (With Commentary from Paul Bray)
15:00 Spain (-8.5) vs Senegal Video Link
19:00 Romania (-9.5) vs Kazakhstan Video Link 

The match worth seeing here is definitely Hungary – Montenegro. Hungary lost to Spain on Monday while Montenegro is 2-0-0, although those wins were over Senegal and Kazakhstan.

Group D
14:30 DR Congo vs Russia (-17.5) Video Link 
17:00 China vs Argentina (-1) Video Link 
19:30 Japan vs Sweden (-2.5) Video Link 

Group D has 3 unbeaten teams (Russia, Japan, and Sweden) and 3 teams (DR Congo, China and Argentina) still looking for a win. This means that the Japan vs Sweden match will likely factor into the Main Round standings. If Japan is to have a shot at making the semifinals they need a win here. The China vs Argentina match will be interesting battle of relative continent strength between Asia and South America.
