San Antonio Spurs Betting
The money line is the bread and butter of most sports books and provides a very simple and easy way to determine how much you can profit. Lines that have negative numbers are favourites (likely winners) and positive numbers indicate the underdog (likely losers).
Considering their history of dominance, the Spurs are more than likely the favourite in most matchups. It’s not uncommon to find a ridiculous line like -1500 for the Spurs on a weekly basis. This means you have to stake $1500 to win $100. But on the rare chance the Spurs are underdogs, they’ll have a number like +140 meaning a $100 bet returns $140.
Risking so much to win so little can have disastrous repercussions especially given the unpredictable nature of sports. An alternative to making a straight bet on the money line is playing the point spread. This system allots a certain amount of points for a team to cover to reduce the line to something more affordable. If the Spurs are listed at -14.5 for instance, it means they have to win the game by 15 points or more. If they win by 14 or less, the bet loses.
It’s almost a given that the Spurs will win over 50 games and make the playoffs each season. So long as the front office keeps their systematic approach and discipline it’s hard to envision the Spurs having a massive drop-off even if their stars start to leave or decline. The Spurs are the closest thing to a sure bet in the NBA until something drastic happens.
