I made the point yesterday that in the National Basketball Association no lead is ever big enough and that dramatic comebacks are as routine as breathing. The Oklahoma City Thunder and the amazing San Antonio Spurs confirmed that yesterday with the Thunder coming from 13 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 103-100 and the Spurs erased a 25-point deficit to knock off the Los Angeles Clippers 96-86.
The three-point win by Oklahoma City (-1 ½) was especially rewarding since I had released the Thunder as my 100-unit NBA Playoff Semifinal Game of the Year. The win left me with a 6-2 playoff record this week and that means those betting $100-per-unit are sitting on a profit of $13,500 over the past six days and $10 players are up $1,350.
It's right back today with another 50-unit NBA playoff winner, a situation power play that last season produced 87.7% winners in the post-season when games were played under these circumstances. Today's nationally televised matchups-the Miami Heat at the Indiana Pacers (ABC at 3:35 Eastern) and the Spurs at the Clippers (TNT at 10:35 Eastern)-are both quite playable but my focus will be on just one of these games.
You can get this 50-unit winner on this site or toll free at 1-800-755-2255 for just $25, charged to your major credit.
For the record San Antonio leads it series with the Clippers 3-0 while the Pacers are up 2-1 on the Heat. Miami is a 2-point road favorite while San Antonio is -7 ½ at the Clippers.

The American League continued its winning ways Saturday in interleague games, again going 9-5 to push its record after two days to 18-10, picking up right where it left off last year, or for the past eight seasons. The AL has dominated interleague play since it began, beating the NL the past eight years and standing 11-4 since it began 15 seasons ago.
Meantime my Best Bets Baseball Club kept bringing in the money Saturday, going 2-1 with three underdogs, highlighted by a 15-unit win by the underdog Baltimore Orioles (+100) with their victory over the Washington Nationals, 6-5. I also won a 10-unit play on underdog Kansas City (+105) over Arizona, 7-3, while losing a 10-unit bet on the Atlanta Braves (+105) who fell to Tampa Bay, 5-2.
This means my Best Bets Baseball Club is 10-5 over the past seven days and remains the biggest bargain in all of sports betting. Just to give you a look at what you can expect for a service just wins, here are the games clients received over the past seven days.

Spurs Go For 18th Straight Win Today
Those who bet the NBA have never-and I mean never-had a friend the equal of the 2011-12 edition of the San Antonio Spurs. When San Antonio takes the floor against the Los Angeles Clippers tonight they will be going for their 18th straight win, having not lost a game since five and one-half weeks ago, on April 11.
Just as amazing as the fact the Spurs are 17-0 in their last 17 games is the fact they stand 15-1-1 against the spread (ATS) in those games. Those who have capitalized on the under-rated Spurs this season expect this, since this is a team that has gone 31-3 in its last 34 outings and in those contests went 27-5-2 ATS
To say the least, San Antonio is a real meal ticket for bettors.
