|-1.5 SA (-110) @ williamhill|
The set-up: This pick is primiarly based upon the "situation" that each club finds itself in coming into this contest. It definitely sets up well for the Spurs in my opinion. Oklahoma City has won three straight, so this does set up as a bit of a natural letdown spot in my opinion. And with the Lakers in town tomorrow night, the Thunder are clearly going to get caught "looking ahead" to that much more high-profile contest vs. the defending champs.
The pick: The Spurs on the other hand have won three of their last four, but they come in off a 96-88 setback at Minnesota in their last outing, dropping their last two ATS. Note as well that the Spurs are sharp 7-1 ATS in their last eight after scoring 90 points or less in a SU/ATS loss in their last outing. I'm laying the points and expecting a decisive victory for the visiting side.
This is a 9* PLAY-BOOK on San Antonio.
