TOM STRYKER’S FREE NBA BASKETBALL SELECTION THURSDAY, MARCH 28TH
#512 SAN ANTONIO (-) over Cleveland at 8:35 PM EST
With losses in three of its last four games including a 125-116 beatdown at Charlotte on Tuesday night, San Antonio will bounce back with a solid effort when Cleveland visits. Off three consecutive straight up losses, the Cavaliers will be playing the first game of a five-game roadtrip and this will be a really tough spot.
A quick glance at the History Book shows that the Spurs have dominated this series lately posting a reliable 15-2 SU and 12-5 ATS record in the last 17 meetings. Equally impressive, at home, San Antonio has put together a solid 41-9 SU and 34-16-1 ATS mark in its last 50 battles including 33-7 SU and 29-11 ATS provided the Spurs are facing a non-division foe. With those two parameters live and head coach Gregg Popovich’s kids arriving off a straight up loss, this angle jumps to a magnificent 12-2 SU and ATS.
This is a terrible wagering spot for the Cavs. According to my notes, Cleveland owns a stiff 22-46 SU and 21-44-3 ATS mark in its last 68 games against Western Conference foes including 11-26 SU and 9-26-2 ATS in this set provided the Cavaliers take the court off a pointspread loss. With those two parameters live and the Cavs battling an opponent that carries a team won/loss percentage of .333 or better, this technical situation falls to a miserable 7-26 SU and 6-25-2 ATS.
In order to reach a team goal of 50 wins, the Spurs will need to go undefeated the rest of the way out. Knocking off the hapless Cavs won’t be an issue. Take San Antonio. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
