4* NBA BLOCKBUSTER ATS BLOWOUT
New York vs. San Antonio,
03/07/2012 20:30 EDT,
Score: 105 - 118
Point Spread: -7/-103 San Antonio
The Spurs have stumbled a bit of late with a two home losses to Chicago and Denver sandwiched between a 102-72 win at home over Charlotte. Even with those two losses the Spurs are 14-3 at home this season, outscoring opponents by 11.0 ppg. The Knicks remain a very popular public play with all the attention surrounding Jeremy Lin, but they are just 1-3 in their last four games and are coming off a 10-point loss at Dallas last night.
San Antonio is a great team to back after a loss. They have only loss back-to-back games twice all season, and both of those came in consecutive road games. San Antonio is 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss.
Another reason to like the Spurs tonight is the fact that this will be the second game for Manu Ginobili after missing five games. Ginobili scored just 8 points in 24 minutes against the Nuggets, but with two days off since their last game, I expect him to play a much bigger role against the Knicks.
San Antonio is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400, while the Knicks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. BET THE SPURS!
