Why Bet the Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are the best defensive team in all of the National Basketball Association. To no one’s surprise, Kawhi Leonard was named the NBA’s defensive player of the year. Leonard has the ability to guard nearly anyone in the league, and is teamed up with a great paint protector in LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs are allowing teams to score just 92.9 points per game. In the first two games, San Antonio has outscored the Grizzlies 200-142. San Antonio is led in scoring by Kawhi Leonard, with more than 21 per game.
Why Bet the Grizzlies
The Memphis Grizzlies so far in the postseason have looked like one of the worst teams to play in the postseason. Memphis is not even competitive in the postseason, and weren’t real competitive at the end of the regular season. Memphis came into the postseason as losers of 4 in a row, and 10 out of their last 12 games. The top two scorers for the Grizzlies have been out, with Marc Gasol and Mike Conley injured. Memphis had their streak of winning 50+ games in the regular season snapped at 3.
Expert Score & Prediction
This has not been a very good series at all up to this point. Do not expect that to change. The Memphis Grizzlies are just a team that has no chance in this series. Memphis has too many of their best players hurt. The San Antonio Spurs are on a mission. They certainly have been under looked all season long, playing behind the Golden State Warriors. The Spurs are going to win big in this game. The bet for this game is the San Antonio Spurs -11.5 on the road at the Memphis Grizzlies.
The final score prediction: Spurs 98 – Grizzlies 81.
