There is one pick today.
Take Utah Jazz +6 spread (buy the half point) against San Antonio Spurs for 3% of the bankroll.
It’s a matchup of division leaders this afternoon as the Utah Jazz take to the road to take on the san Antonio Spurs. These two teams have split the series meeting this season with each team winning on the others home court.
The San Antonio Spurs are poised to make another run at the postseason this year and head coach Gregg Popovich has become notorious in limiting his players time on the court in the later stages of the regular season in order to get his lineup healthy for the playoffs. The Spurs are a veteran team, with a lot of older players by league standards so it would not be a surprise to see some of the notable Spurs players begin to limit their minutes, especially considering that San Antonio has basically locked up the #2 seed in the West. LaMarcus Aldridge, Danny Green, and Manu Ginobili are all expected to miss this contest and that could leave just the opening needed for the Jazz to capitalize on.
The Utah Jazz are in a battle with the LA Clippers for the all-important 4th seed in the West and first round bye in the playoffs. Utah has played extremely well this season and come into this matchup on a three-game winning streak. They have already shown that they have the ability to win in San Antonio and now facing a depleted Spurs roster, this could be the advantage they need to once again pull off a victory. The Spurs don't lose often at home, but Utah certainly has the talent to keep this game competitive, if not win outright.
These two teams are two of the best defensive teams in the Western Conference. Rudy Gobert has been a true rim protector this season and always makes an impact on both the offensive and defensive side of the basketball. With Aldridge being held out of this contest, that should allow Gobert to be an even bigger presence in the post and make things difficult for the Spurs near the rim. Points will likely be hard to come by for both teams and the oddsmakers are expecting a rather low scoring game in which the points could prove to be valuable. We expect a close, back and forth game throughout that could be decided in the final possession. The value in this game is with the Jazz.
