How To Bet On Wizards Spurs – Spurs Get the Best of a Lopsided Contest

Washington Wizards @ San Antonio Spurs – Saturday February 2, 2013 8:30PM EST

The betting sites are not completely ready to declare an upset in this game between the Washington Wizards and the San Antonio Spurs, but it is certainly not a game that San Antonio wants to take lightly. Leading into the week, Washington had won seven of 10 games and was actually playing pretty decent ball. But the Wizards was not playing teams like the San Antonio Spurs in that stretch, which is something that will show itself right from the tip-off of this game.

Online poker players always like to hold their best cards until the very end of the hand. Most NBA fans thought that the Spurs would be playing poker this season and holding out on its best play until after the All-Star break. But San Antonio has shot out of the gate and is one of the top teams in the league. San Antonio has been battling with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers all season for supremacy in the Western Conference. If there is one thing that the Spurs is very protective of, it is its home record.

Why the Wizards Will Win

It is hard for the online sports book experts to give the Wizards a chance in this game, but Washington has been full of surprises over the last couple of weeks. What is not a surprise is Washington’s 3-18 road record this season. The Wizards had a couple of lucky breaks in a few of its road games in the last couple of weeks, but there has been an overall trend of dismal road performance by Washington all season long. Washington has had problems on offense and defense this season and it does not look like those problems will be getting better any time soon.

Why the Spurs Will Win

Fans can expect the Spurs to put its bench on the floor for much of this game. While San Antonio is not in the habit of taking opponents lightly, it does have subtle ways of making sure that its star veteran players are healthy for the playoffs. The not-so-subtle approach of sitting starters for road trips was met with fines by the league office. So the Spurs now use its bench a lot more than it used to when it feels the need to give players like Tony Parker and Tim Duncan a rest.

The Bottom Line

There is a chance that Washington will be close in this game heading into halftime. But once the Spurs start to pull away, expect San Antonio to leave Washington in the dust. This game should be a fairly lopsided affair that will send Washington to yet another crushing road defeat.

Pick: San Antonio Spurs
