Pick #1 – San Antonio Spurs at Brooklyn Nets
Hot on the heels of a 7 game win streak the odds makers are picking the talented and healthy San Antonio Spurs to dismantle the injury plagued four game losing streak Brooklyn Nets by 15 point or more. Not only are the spurs red hot but five out of their last six games have gone over the set spread total indicating they are playing faster and putting up more points against opponents then normally expected. The last six nets games have all gone under so this meeting will certainly be a clash of who wants to push the pace faster and who can keep up. The first meeting this season resulted in a spurs 75 - 102 drudging of the Nets at home. Here the home courts are reversed giving the Nets a much better likely hood of at least putting up a fight in this one. Both teams combine to score for 199.3 points and combine to give up 192 and we are seeing the total for today really fluctuating today between those two numbers. Looking at the consensus on bets for today the over /under for this game has a whopping 62% on the over. Opening at 191.5 or 192 depending on where you shop your lines it is becoming very clear that the smart money is pouring in on the over as we have now seen the line move up to as high as 194 so far today. The smart money has spoken giving us a real good indicator for how this total bet should play out. Brooklyn is 1-7 ATS in its last 8 games at home and San Antonio is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games on the road so it should be a lot of the Spurs pounding on the Jarret Jack less Nets with the Nets doing everything in there power to stay close at home. Both teams are great inside and rebounding teams ((Nets) No. 10 (Spurs) No. 6) but not that great from outs side (Nets) No. 29 (Spurs)No. 24) so there should be a lot of scoring and easy points inside the point which should hopefully push the score up. Lets look for Thaddeus Young, Brook Lopez and company to look to really give it a go at home and hopefully we see a ton of points as a results. We know the Spurs and players like Aldridge, Duncan, Leonard, and Parker should have no problem holding up there end of the scoring. Lets look to roll with the smart money here and we will take the over 194.
