Total Pick:

In Game 1 the Spurs shot 58.8% on route to putting up 110 points. That’s something that is unlikely to happen again in this series. Same goes with the inflated 3-point percentage averages with both teams shooting well above their average. Neither team can expect to be successful in Game 3 if they can’t get do a better job on defending behind the arc and I expect that to have been a key point in practice leading up to tonight’s game. Take the UNDER 197.5.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
