You didn’t really have to be a genius to figure out that the NBA Western Conference Champion was likely going to be one of 3 teams. As we make our way through the second round of the playoffs, it looks more and more as though that is going to be the case. The Golden State Warriors are well on their way to disposing of the Portland Trail Blazers, while the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder series hangs delicately in the balance at 1-1. The Spurs were favored to make it out of this series, but they always knew that it wasn’t going to be easy. While this series is ted, it could just as easily be 2-0 in favor of the Spurs had it not been for some missed calls by the officials in the dying seconds of Game 2. The question now is whether or not the Thunder can ride their luck and take a series lead on home court. This looks as though it’s destined to be a longer series, and you can bet on all the games at our MyBookie.ag NBA betting lines portal.
How To Bet The Spurs vs Thunder NBA Playoffs Odds, TV & Game Info
Why bet on the San Antonio Spurs
You know that the Spurs have to still be smarting after that controversial loss in Game 2, and that is something that may well work in their favor. This is a great team to begin with, but when these guys play with a chip on their shoulder, they take things to a whole new level. The Spurs manhandled OKC in Game 1, leading many to believe that this series might not be as close as expected, but things could take a real momentum shift if OKC can find a way to win back to back games. The Spurs lost both games that they played in Oklahoma City during the regular season, but the thirst for revenge may just tilt things in their favor.
Why bet on the Oklahoma City Thunder
You just cannot put into worlds how big that win was for OKC in Game 2 of this series. Let’s not forget that the Spurs only lost 1 game at home all season, and that loss came at a time when they were resting guys ahead of the playoffs. Yes, the win was tainted by some rather questionable missed calls at the end of the game, but you still have to give credit to the Thunder for staying close all the way through, especially after being blown out of the building in Game 1. OKC won both of their regular season home games against the Spurs, and if they can hold serve on home court in the next 2, they may well be on their way to the Western Conference Final.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Spurs are an experienced team that know their way around the postseason, and you can bet that they are not going to let that last game affect their psyche. I like the Spurs to put in a workmanlike performance here as they steal back home court advantage.
