How To Bet On Spurs 76ers – Spurs, Minus Ginobili, Try To Win On The Road

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/20/2013 5:55:24 PM

When the San Antonio Spurs play the Philadelphia 76ers this Monday night, they will not have the services of reliable shooting guard Manu Ginobili. Can Philadelphia take advantage?

Why San Antonio Will Win

The high-stakes poker games that take place on a nightly basis in the NBA demand a certain degree of luck from the schedule maker, and the Spurs have enough fortune on their side in this tilt.

San Antonio has a full day off before this game, and unlike most of the games being played on Monday (a bank and government holiday in the United States in observance of Martin Luther King's birthday), this contest will be a night game. A Monday matinee might have been tougher for San Antonio to handle, but this will not be a particularly quick turnaround for the Spurs, giving them the legs they’ll need to have in the fourth quarter.

You might wonder if the Spurs are equipped to win, given the fact that Manu Ginobili will be out with a hamstring injury. The thing to keep in mind with San Antonio is that this team rested Ginobili and other frontline starters against the Miami Heat on Nov. 29 and almost defeated the defending champions on the road in South Florida. San Antonio has cultivated quality depth in recent seasons under head coach Gregg Popovich. The Spurs have hungry, young talent on their bench, and that's why they shouldn't miss a beat without Ginobili. San Antonio certainly has the horses to compensate for Ginobili's absence and provide enough offense to overcome the 76ers on the road.

Why Philadelphia Will Win

People in the football betting world who don't pay close attention to NBA basketball could probably still tell you that the calculus of this game might actually give Philadelphia a good chance to win, even though the quality of the Sixers is nowhere close to the level of the Spurs.

The Sixers have two full days off before this game and will be going against a Spurs team that will be without Manu Ginobili for most of the remainder of January due to a strained hamstring. Ginobili is not a huge minutes-eater, but when he's on the court, San Antonio is better. Ginobili is a lethal shotmaker who plays so fluidly with teammates Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. The threat of Ginobili's three-point shooting, combined with his ability to drive to the basket, also creates a lot of drive-and-kick situations in which San Antonio's role players get open perimeter shots. San Antonio's defense is going to be limited in this game. That and Philadelphia's added amount of rest will benefit the 76ers to a quite considerable extent.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a close game, but San Antonio's depth is going to give the Spurs enough scoring options at crunch time. Philadelphia can't match up with San Antonio, even with Ginobili on the sidelines.
