OffshoreInsiders.com Senior Sports Handicapper Matt Rivers has a free winner Wednesday on the San Antonio Spurs (-6.5) to Memphis.
Reasoning: I hesitate in laying half a dozen points with a team that has played as badly as the Spurs have but with their backs up against the wall I am going to do just that. Greg Popovich’ team is as experienced and professional of a team as there is out there making me feel that they will come through in this spot and at least live for one more day.
I give Lionel Hollins’ Grizzlies all the credit in the world for building this 3-1 lead. I definitely do not believe this is a fluke at all as Memphis has flat out played better basketball and right now may even be a better team. Zach Randolph is a beast and the young Grizz have manned up with guys like Conley, Gasol and others. But a closeout game is never easy no less with a young and very inexperienced team on the road. It’s just a tough tough spot for Memphis to be able to succeed in. I can see them taking care of business at home in a game six scenario but not here in this spot tonight.
Ginobili, Parker and Duncan have been there and done that. They aren’t going to panic and will not go down without a fight. The Spurs certainly have been regressing since the first 50 to 60 games of the regular season which were magical and there have been some recent leaner times for sure. But for this one night I do believe that San Antonio will reach deep and be able to muster a high quality effort as they are in survival mode.
It’s not going to be easy but the Spurs are not going down in five games and I see them being able to cover this game in the end.
For more information: Matt Rivers said Tuesday was the worst day I have had in a long, long time. It happens, now it’s time to look forward and destroy that Crookie as per usual with a pair of plays. The run is still beyond belief and I will prove it one more time. 400,000* Denver-Oklahoma City plus a matinee affair on the diamond involving the Braves and Padres. The winning ways are here for sure once again, that you can bet on! Click now to purchase
