Well, so much for the idea that the San Antonio Spurs are a washed team of NBA betting. Now they have been put on their way to the retirement home. After getting soundly beat by the run and gun Mavs in Game 1 of this NBA playoff betting series the Spurs have bounced back with an inspiring sports betting performance rattling off 3 wins a row to take a 3-1 lead heading into Game 5 and a chance to wrap up this round one basketball betting series.
Coach Greg Popovich has done it once again and somehow inspired his over matched players to go toe-to-toe with more talented team and come out ahead in the basketball betting. But you don’t win 4 NBA betting championships in a decade without doing something right and Pop is definitely doing something right in the Alamo.
The Mavs entered the NBA playoff betting action as one of the hottest and most talented teams in the NBA wagering. They captured the #2 seed in the West and ended the NBA odds regular season action with the fourth best record in the league (55-27). With the addition of Caron Butler to go with Dirk, Jason Kidd, Shawn Marion and Sixth Man extraordinaire Jason Terry Dallas ended the NBA wagering regular season on an 8-2 run and looked like the team most likely to derail defending NBA betting champion LA.
But it’s been the Spurs that have commanded this NBA playoff betting series and Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobli who have had the headline performances. The Spurs defense has largely shutdown Dirk and the former NBA betting MVP must have a huge game on the road if the Mavs are going to stay alive in the NBA odds action.
Everything seems to be going right for the Spurs at the moment and it’s hard to imagine the Mavs getting a win in Game 5. The Spurs will be playing at home in front of a group of rabid NBA betting fans that have supported this team with their heart and soul since the Popovich Era began and that is accustomed to winning in the NBA playoff betting.
After taking two games on the road in Dallas the Spurs will be looking forward to rewarding the fans with a closeout win at home. The Spurs know how important it is to wrap up this playoff betting series as soon as possible and try and grab a few days rest for its aging veterans. Look for the Spurs to come out very aggressive and wrap up this NBA betting series.
