NBA FREE PICK: Take San Antonio. According to latest NBA trends, Wizards are 4-17-2 ATS in the last 23 meetings and are 1-10-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings in San Antonio. Favorite is 17-4-2 ATS in the last 23 meetings. Spurs are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 2 days rest, 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 Saturday games, 36-14-3 ATS in their last 53 home games and are 34-15-3 ATS in their last 52 vs. Eastern Conference.
Washington has issues against the Spurs. They have problems stopping Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Most teams do but with rookie Brad Beal (wrist) likely on the shelf for awhile, the Wiz are in trouble. John Wall has Jordan Crawford and Garrett Temple as his shooting guards. The Spurs and Parker will keep Wall from getting out in the open court and just pound the Wizards in the paint. With a few extra days rest over the Wiz, who played on Friday night, expect the well-rested Spurs to easily cover the big number at home.
