MEMPHIS BETTER ADJUST QUICK, OR THEY'LL GET RUN OUT OF THE WESTERN FINALS
The San Antonio Spurs were favored by about five points in Game One of the Western Conference Finals this past Sunday. So, it wasn't a shocker that they won their home opener against the Memphis Grizzlies. But, the manner they won...and the SIZE of the victory margin was a shocker!
It goes without saying that Memphis has to make some adjustments. Can they make THAT many adjustments?!
Oddsmakers opened the game at Spurs -2.5 in anticipation of the bounce-back theory coming into play from bettors. Instead, sharps hit the home favorite that looked so impressive out of the gate. You don't often see a spread DOUBLE from its opener in the NBA playoffs. That's the case here. San Antonio truly impressed. Memphis truly shriveled.
JIM HURLEY has some very strong ideas about what's going to happen Tuesday Night in Alamo City. And, don't be surprised if NETWORK gets involved with the total too. In these later rounds, the best values are often on the Over/Under options.
