0-1 Saturday, 12-8 for the season.
Lakers (-1) @ Spurs (217.5)
Pick: Spurs +1
If you bet sports enough, you’ll know that sometimes the right side does not always cash. We were reminded of that last night with our Trail Blazers -1.5 bet. Portland led almost the whole way against Philadelphia but let the game get away in the closing minutes. Sometimes, a team can be covering a number for over 90% of regulation and still find a way to let you down. As a sports bettor you should look to exploit such phony results like that in the future. We think we have one here in the Lone Star State. The Lakers continue a three-game road trip tonight against the Spurs after edging out the Mavericks 119-110 in overtime on Friday. Dallas led by 10 at half and by nine after three quarters. A Danny Green three pointer at the end of regulation forced overtime and the Lakers dominated the extra session. Our guess is if Dallas just plays an average fourth quarter and wins by 5-10 points, tonight’s line in San Antonio is at least reversed and the Spurs are the one-point favorite against the Lakers. While the Lakers had to chase the game, San Antonio coasted to a 127-110 victory on Friday against Golden State and no player for the Spurs played more than 30 minutes in the victory. The Spurs are the more rested team here and should be favored. They’re the only side we can look to in this one.
