Senior Handicapper Matt Rivers of OffshoreInsiders.com has a free pick winner is on the San Antonio Spurs (-2.5) to Utah.
Reasoning: I know that Manu Ginobili is injured once again and Tiago Splitter may miss this game as well. I also respect how the Jazz in Utah are always tough to beat at home whether they have Stockton and Malone doing their thing or this current version with guys like Jefferson, Millsap and Harris. So I’m definitely not expecting the red-hot Spurs to just go into Salt Lake City and win going away or anything but let’s give credit where credit is due and that goes to Greg Popovich and his blistering team.
Nobody truly figured San Antonio for a contender this season, as most experts believed the window had pretty much closed. Well they may not win the championship when all is said and done but the way these guys have been playing the Spurs certainly need to be reintroduced into the conversation.
Tony Parker has been playing better than ever and Tim Duncan is an experienced veteran who still has some game left. Throw in the Gary Neal’s and Matt Bonner’s of the world and it’s not really all that big of a fluke that these guys have now won 10 straight games and are opening up a little distance with the Mavericks in the division. Plus Pop’s boys have also covered 9 of their last 10 with a push and are not the team on the back-to-back today as they were off last night unlike Utah who tangled in Houston Sunday evening with the Rockets.
The Spurs are on-fire, have a great point guard at the moment and are the fresher team on the floor tonight. That’s good enough for me and I’ll therefore lay a few and take my chances.
Top expert pick on this game: San Antonio
For more information: The 400,000* on Iowa yesterday not only covered the 4 ½ but won outright by a billion plus! It’s now 15 of 23 winning days, a 22-13-1 overall run in which my teams have covered by an amazing 89 ½ points (yes, that includes the losses) and the profit is a whopping 2.9 million stars to the good. if you don’t think I’m getting over that 3 million mark today than you’re crazy.
