SBR contributor Ross Benjamin provides us with an insightful betting preview on Sunday’s game between the Spurs and Knicks. Join us in reading this article which culminates with one of Ross’ NBA free picks.

San Antonio Spurs vs New York Knicks 

New York and San Antonio will square off on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. There’s an opening tip time slated for 3:35 PM ET, and the game will be televised nationally by ABC. This will be the first meeting of the season between these teams. San Antonio defeated New York in both games last season 100-99 and 94-84.

At the time of this writing, a consensus of NBA odds has San Antonio as an 8.5-point road favorite, and there’s a posted total of 213.0.


Contrarian Approach and Mindset

San Antonio has gone a terrific 22-6 on the road this season. Conversely, New York is a dreadful 0-4 SU&ATS on their current home stand, and they appear to be a team in total disarray. It then comes as little surprise to me, that a survey of the best sportsbooks indicates 70.5% of point spread bets have been made on San Antonio thus far. My many years of experience has proven to me that’s it’s seldom as easy as it looks when making NBA picks. This certainly qualifies as one of those instances.


NBA Profitable Betting System

San Antonio enters Sunday’s game with an outstanding 41-12 (.774) record. The Spurs have gone under their totals in its last 5 games by a combined 78.5 points. These previously mentioned statistics set up a profitable NBA against the spread betting angle illustrated below.

Any home underdog (New York) that’s facing an opponent (San Antonio) that’s facing an opponent with a season win percentage of .750 or better, and that team (San Antonio) has gone under the total by a combined 42.0 points or more during their previous 5 games, resulted in those home underdogs going a solid 105-60 ATS (63.6%) since 1996. Furthermore, this precise betting angle is an even better 23-12 ATS (65.7%) over the past 3 seasons.
