Rain, rain, rain, and three road dogs get wagers tonight:
- $110 to win $100 on the Spurs getting 4.5 in Miami
- $110 to win $100 on the Suns getting 7 in Houston
- $110 to win $100 on the Nets getting 5.5 at home against Boston
Here’s hoping the coaching and depth of San Antonio carries them on the road with the points, the anger, speed, and inside knowledge of Aaron Brooks keeps Phoenix in the game against his former teammates, and a rested Deron Williams gives Boston fits in its second game in 30 hours.
There’s been enough evidence to counter the road dogs theory already (routs all over the place covering big spreads this weekend), but I happen to like the odds and setups in these three games. The Spurs almost never get points, and they’re a better team, though not star-laden. The Suns scrap every night, Frye is back, and Aaron Brooks isn’t a step down against Houston (shhh). And the Nets…it’s just a feeling. I think Boston showcased itself yesterday, all of its centers are benched with injuries, and New Jersey will look to impress at home.
I know, I know. It’s just a hunch. But then, that’s part of the fun too.
