Bet on NBA handicappers are looking forward to the stretch drive towards the playoffs and the race’s implications on the basketball betting lines. The San Antonio Spurs certainly had their bet on NBA mojo going heading into the all star break as they finished the first half of the season with just 1 loss against the basketball betting lines in their last 8 games before the layoff.
San Antonio is on top of the southwest division with a bet on NBA record of 35-16 and a mark of 26-25-1 against the spread. The Spurs bet on NBA strength is their 7th ranked defense, which has been the difference that has put them on top of their division.
San Antonio has always been a strong and physical defensive team and that was what made them a dynasty and a long time post season contender that fans respect and love to bet on NBA games with.
The Spurs last played the Knicks on November 11 at San Antonio and won the game 92-80 for an easy bet on NBA payoff as 4.5-point chalks with the game going well under the posted total of 198. Tim Duncan proved why he is such a bet on NBA asset as he scored 23 points and had 9 boards and 2 blocked shots.
Duncan leads the Spurs in scoring with an average of 20.8 points per game. He also leads the team in rebounds with an average of 10.5 per game. The New York Knicks have an overall record of 21-31 straight up but were a near opposite 30-22 against the basketball betting lines.
The Knicks were also on a good bet on NBA run prior to the break with 7 covers in their last 10 games. New York’s bet on NBA strength is their 3rd ranked defense. Their defense is what has killed them as it is ranked 28th. The Knicks have been a solid bet on NBA dog with a mark of 22-16 against the spread.
