There is nothing worse than getting a playoff match-up that looks exciting on paper, but which ends up being a total disappointment. There can be no disputing that the most exciting looking pairing of this NBA playoff so far is the one that has pitted the Sam Antonio Spurs against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The good news for online basketball betting fans is that this one is living up to expectations, as we head into Game 5 in OKC with the series tied 2-2. Both teams have stolen a win on the road, which means that home court advantage is back with the San Antonio Spurs. The way this series is going shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone that follows the game, as these two were evenly split in the regular season, with each team winning both of their home games against the other. This game could prove to be crucial in deciding the series, and you can wager on it at MyBookie.ag.

Why bet on the San Antonio Spurs
With the series now down to a best of 3, you have to feel that the Spurs are the favorites, especially since 2 of those 3 games are on home court. San Antonio only lost a single game at home all season long, and it seems unlikely that they would lose a pair of home games in a single series, no matter how good the opponent is. The Spurs will argue that they should be in the driving seat in this series, as a few blown calls in the final seconds of Game 2 handed the win to the Thunder. San Antonio has held the Thunder under 100 points in 3 of the 4 games in this series, and if they can do that again on home court, they should walk away with the win.
Why bet on the Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are proving to be a whole lot less fragile than many people have labeled them. They made a habit of letting teams back into things late in games all season long, but they appear to have kicked that habit in the postseason. Twice they have been down in this series, and twice they have battled back to get things even again. The game that they won in San Antonio is being dubbed “a steal” by many, mostly due to those blown calls, but they hang in with the Spurs all the way in that one, and took their chance to win when it was presented to them. You get the sense that OKC needs to win Game 5 if they are to win this series.
My Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
If it were not for the mistakes made by the officials in Game 2, the Spurs would still be unbeaten at home in the playoffs. I just don’t see them losing there again in this series.
