Thunder vs. Spurs Preview (video)
OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a pick for Wednesday and it’s on the Oklahoma City Thunder (+7) at San Antonio.
I admit that playing on a back-to-back here with travel against the rested 46-10 Spurs is not going to be an easy task. But with that said I am completely under the belief that we are going to start seeing a tired worn down San Antonio team as these guys are not young and are not going to have nearly the second half like they did in the first.
The Spurs big three of Duncan, Ginobili and Parker are still very good and very capable. There are also other pieces like Blair and Neal and Jefferson that can look really good on any given night. Greg Popovich’ team will compete and be there competing for the title but I am not all in with them and think they are going to start to falter a bit. In other words they are just not 46-10 type good, no how no way.
Oklahoma State did just play at home against the Clippers last night and are the more fatigued team of these two. But when you have a litmus type test like this and have the young and talented personnel like they do I can’t help but grab around seven or so points and take my chances. The legs may be a big tired but playing against the best team in the league in San Antonio provides enough motivation to somewhat counteract that.
Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are as good as they come and all in all the Thunder are not a team that anybody will want to play come playoff time. These guys are a total x factor of a team that can be great and the next dynasty. That may be a bit much and not even all that relevant here in this one particular game but whenever I can get this much with this team I’m going to make a play on them, end of story.
Top expert pick on this game: Oklahoma City
For more information: It was A perfect 2-0 sweep on Tuesday including a whopping 700,000* of profit as both the 400,000* on Michigan State and 300,000* on Louisville cashed those tickets with total ease. Not bad when the teams you fade combine for 85 total points!
Wow, I am loving a pair of dogs today along with one way, way, way too cheap chalk! I’m talking about teams that are ridiculously undervalued and it is going to show going away. A pair of pups that are about to have a tremendous amount of bite and cover their respective games by the bare minimum of seven points plus a 300,000* chalk that is winning going away in an easy cover. Two pups, one favorite and a full million* of profit are on the table. I’m once again snatching it all. Who else is Rivers betting?
