Basketball Betting – Streaking Spurs Go Into Golden State as an Underdog on Saturday

The San Antonio Spurs are playing about as well as any team in the NBA right now, as they have won 12 consecutive games. However, when they visit the Oracle Arena in Oakland on Saturday night, they will go in as the underdog as they take on the Golden State Warriors in basketball betting action that is set to tip off at 10:35 PM Eastern time.

San Antonio has straight-up record of 52-16, which means the Spurs are a game and a half ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder in the race to have the top record in the Western Conference. San Antonio is also a game and a half and head of the Indiana Pacers, and that carry some meaning, since the team with the best record in the league will have home-court advantage throughout the entire playoffs, as long as they are alive. Golden State has an outstanding record of 44-26, which puts it in sixth position in the West. If the season ended right now, the Warriors would be playing the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the West playoffs. However, with many of these teams close together in the standings, no one can really speculate.

In the basketball betting odds that have been placed on this game by the people at BetAnySports, the Warriors are laying a short number:

Over 207 points -110
Under 207 points -110

What has happened with the Spurs is actually pretty remarkable. They have dealt with plenty of injuries all season long, and at times have been able to dress only eight players. Yet you wouldn’t even know it, because all they do is win. Much of the publicity goes to the guys known as the “Big Three,” but this club has proven to have plenty of depth. Patty Mills, for example, stepped in for Tony Parker at point guard and put together a string of 20-point performances. This is once again going to be a very difficult team for anyone to play come playoff time.

Of course, BetAnySports customers here every season that San Antonio has gotten too old to contend. Yet they gave life-and-death to the Miami Heat last season, having them on the ropes and ready for the knockout in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, before Ray Allen’s three-pointer gave Miami new life, and presumably brought some of those Miami fans who had left the American Airlines Arena back into the building.

The Spurs have covered six in a row and eight of their last nine against the NBA betting odds, and in these last nine games they have shot 50% or better on six occasions. But even when they aren’t shooting very well, like on Friday night against Sacramento (38.7%), they still find a way to win. Golden State does that as well, especially lately at home, winning seven consecutive games. These two teams have met twice on the season, with San Antonio winning both times by two points, and forcing 43 Warrior turnovers in the process.
