Before the NBA Playoffs started I had the San Antonio Spurs as one of my sports picks for NBA betting to win the championship and I am not backing off that pick just because Miami is defending their title.
All season long, the Spurs have been the best team in the NBA and they have waited all 12 months for a chance at redemption and they are here to close deal, backed with a better overall team and tremendous motivation.
San Antonio’s Depth to Matchup With
It has been a long time since we have seen a team that plays the game as expertly as the Spurs. As all the San Antonio Spurs players acknowledge, head coach Gregg Popovich has built “a system” in which ball movement and execution is tantamount, which frees up space on the floor for different players to excel and find shots.
It is not lost on NBA basketball handicappers that no Spurs player averaged more than 30 minutes and even in the postseason, only Tim Duncan is playing more than 32 minutes on average.
