Thunder Spurs Betting Tips – Thunder, Spurs Open Regular Season With Western Conference Finals Rematch

Posted by Craig Parsons on 10/28/2012 6:42:50 PM

The San Antonio Spurs won’t have to wait long before they get their first chance to avenge last year’s Western Conference championship loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. However, actually avenging the loss with a win won’t be easy. San Antonio opens its 2012-13 regular season schedule against the team that eliminated them from the playoffs a year ago, and while the team is once again confident heading in to this year, they know it won’t get any easier for them against the Thunder this time around.

Oklahoma City has its own motivations heading in to a new season after coming up short against Lebron James and the Miami Heat in last year’s NBA Finals. The same core returns intact for a Thunder team that was dominant at times a year ago, and another year of experience together should be a huge advantage.

Kevin Durant and company will be among the favorites to return to the NBA Finals this season and this time win it all, but it is a long road to get back to where their season ended a year ago. Durant was the scoring champion again in 2011-12, but continued to work on his all-around game in the offseason and understands that in order for this team to win he needs to be better. He will certainly have a lot of help on the way with Russell Westbrook and James Harden back in the fold, and while Oklahoma City didn’t land any big pieces in free agency and the draft, another year of experience both in terms of the individual players and the chemistry of the team is expected to lead to improvement.

Whether or not the Spurs have enough left in the tank to return to the Western Conference finals will be something that sports betting fans keep an eye on, as this veteran team gears up for one more run. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker simply couldn’t keep up with a younger and faster Thunder team in last year’s West finals, so it won’t exactly be a surprise if they fail to do so again one year later. San Antonio remains one of the most well coached teams in the association under Greg Popovich and are still a very good team, but they do appear vulnerable versus speed.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Online betting fans that couldn’t wait for the meaningful NBA games to begin will be thrilled with this one, and a lot of the money will be on the team that won last year’s Western Conference finals. Everything is lined up for the Thunder to have another dominant season, and while San Antonio will once again be among the contenders in the West, they don’t have what it takes to slow down a hungry Oklahoma City team.
