Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The San Antonio Spurs sound like they are going to play all their normal guys in this game. One thing head coach Gregg Popovich does not shy away from doing, and that’s sitting key guys at odd times. It’s not odd for him, and the talk is – he will sit several regulars in each of the two games upcoming against Golden State. In this one though, look for the Spurs to play well, and grab this game and take it out of reach early. The bet for this game is the San Antonio Spurs -7.5 over the Toronto Raptors.
