It’s time to tip off another great day of NBA betting action here at Cappers Info, and we are set to make our free basketball picks for some of the best games on the docket on Saturday, 2/18/12.
NBA Matchup: San Antonio Spurs @ Los Angeles Clippers
Date: Saturday, February 18th, 3:30 ET
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: Los Angeles -3
NBA TV Schedule: FOX Sports
One of these moments, the whole world is going to wake up and realize that the Clippers are good, but not fantastic without Chauncey Billups. We really like the way that the Spurs have been playing on their “Rodeo Road Trip,” and we think that they have a lot to prove on Saturday going up against Lob City. Tony Parker is coming off of a tremendous appointment performance with 34 points and 14 assists against the Toronto Raptors, and we think that he is going to be one of the cogs to pull off the mild upset in the Tinseltown.
NBA Pick: San Antonio +3
NBA Matchup: Atlanta Hawks @ Portland Trail Blazers
Date: Saturday, February 18th, 10:00 ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
NBA Betting Odds: No Line
NBA TV Schedule: NBA TV
We don’t have a line in this one yet, but we know that this is a perfect spot for yet another team to come on the road and get the job done at the Rose Garden. The Hawks have proven that they have the goods to come on the road and beat some of the best teams in the league, and this is another one of these spots where the Hawks could shine. Keep an eye on the injury status for LaMarcus Aldridge, but assuming that he is going to be out of the fold once again, we just don’t know how a slumping Portland team is going to get on track against these Hawks.
NBA Pick: Atlanta Hawks
