The Brooklyn Nets are capable of blowing the doors off here given their current form, but they've also seen games come down to the wire, and they're only winning in the favorite role by an average of 5 points. The Nets are also 1-3 ATS this season as double-digit favorites. The San Antonio Spurs are trash, we know, but we're getting a boatload of free points here. Give me the Spurs if forced to pick.
