Spurs are the Best Bet in the NBA

The San Antonio Spurs are perfect at home on paper (23-0 SU) but have looked beatable in recent games. The Spurs barely edged the New York Knicks 100-99 last week while bouncing back against the Cleveland Cavaliers and coming out on top 99-95. Dating back to last season, San Antonio has not lost on home court since March. Next up on the docket is a Sunday home date with their inter-state rival, the Dallas Mavericks.
