We always warn bettors here at Cappers Info about overreactions. We just don’t like them to say the least. We think that Saturday’s NBA point spread is a crucial mistake by the oddsmakers and is a typical overcompensation for a game that was a statistical anomaly in Game 3. The Thunder were just about as perfect as perfect could be in the middle 24 minutes of the game on Thursday night, and the end result was a 20-point victory to end the Spurs’ 20-game winning streak. That being said, it was a perfect situation for Oklahoma City to do some damage. The team knew that it needed that win, and it was feeding off of a home crowd that it hasn’t lost in front of yet in the playoffs this year. The Spurs had to be getting exhausted, and they were just due to lose a game. Still, we’ve seen this plot before. Head Coach Gregg Popovich took all of his stars out of this game in the third quarter and never put them back in the fold. That being said, they really did basically rest up for another go at it on Saturday night. What will we see this time around? A lot healthier and a lot more careful San Antonio team, that finally has been handed a loss, being given the wakeup call that was needed to essentially issue the death shot to the Thunder. It’s ridiculous that the Spurs are the underdog in this game in our eyes.
