Spurs Look To Hold Off Rockets, Grizzlies In NBA Southwest Division

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/11/2014 2:05:13 AM

The San Antonio Spurs were the class of the NBA Southwest division once against last season, adding another banner before fighting all the way to within seconds of an NBA title that managed to slip through their grasp as they fell short against the Miami Heat. The Spurs are once again listed as the online sports betting favorites to win the Southwest in 2013-14, but age and an improving division could be catching up to them.

San Antonio Spurs + 130

San Antonio had an NBA championship in the bag before Ray Allen sank the most clutch three-ball in NBA Finals history with time running down in game six and everything fell apart from there, so there isn’t much reason to doubt this team can contend for another title. The Spurs have done an excellent job supporting their core of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili with rising stars like Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and Tiago Splitter, and that mix of youth and experience makes San Antonio a favorite in the west.

Houston Rockets + 140

The addition of a healthy and motivated Dwight Howard to a strong core that already features James Harden, Jeremy Lin, and Omer Asik should make this team that much more difficult to play against. Howard had his issues in a system that he really didn’t fit in Los Angeles, and will be eager to prove his worth in a much better situation under Rockets’ head coach Kevin McHale. Some consider Harden to already be one of the top-five players in the NBA, and the addition of Howard should only help with more room.

Memphis Grizzlies + 400

The Grizzlies didn’t feel as though the best sports betting season in franchise history was enough to bring back former head coach Lionel Hollins, so in comes Dave Joerger to try and get the most out of this lineup. Memphis added another scorer in Mike Miller to help support the big men at the offensive end of the floor, and the Grizzlies should be just as difficult to play against night in and night out at the other end of the floor.

Dallas Mavericks + 2,000

This will be an interesting season for the Mavericks from the standpoint that they aren’t expected to do much, but still have enough talent to contend if they can stay healthy. Dirk Nowitzki, Vince Carter, and Shawn Marion are all playing for new contracts whether in Dallas or somewhere else, and the Mavericks brought in Monta Ellis as an offensive upgrade following the loss of OJ Mayo. This franchise will not let a season slide away without at least fighting for a playoff spot, so check Dallas as a sleeper team if healthy.

New Orleans Pelicans + 4,000

New Orleans has a new team name, a new jersey, and a new direction with what looks like a strong online betting future built around second-year center Anthony Davis. However, it will take some time before the Pelicans are able to climb out of the Southwest division basement. The team added another pair of young core players in Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, but they also lost Greivis Vasquez and are still very young.
