Jack's Free Pick Monday!
San Antonio vs. Utah,
02/20/2012 21:00 EDT,
Score: 106 - 102
Point Spread: -3/-105 San Antonio
The San Antonio Spurs are absolutely rolling right now. I'll back this red-hot team as they travel to Utah to face the Jazz tonight. Utah will be playing the second of a back-to-back and their 3rd game in 4 days, while San Antonio is playing just their 2nd game in 5 days. The Spurs will clearly have more energy to give tonight.
San Antonio has won 10 straight games heading into this one. The Spurs are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games as well. What is most impressive about this streak is that seven of those 10 games have been on the road. After struggling away from home early in the year, the Spurs are proving they can win anywhere.
The Jazz have lost six of their last eight games overall with one of their two wins coming at home against the lowly Washington Wizards. San Antonio has their number, and I fully expect that to continue tonight. The Spurs have gone 4-0 SU & 3-1 ATS in their last four meetings with the Jazz, winning all four by 7 points or more.
This play falls into a system that is 67-30 ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet against home underdogs (UTAH) - extremely tired team - when playing their 3rd game in 4 days, in February games. The favorite is 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings. Bet San Antonio Monday.
