Joes Pick To Cover The Spread
The Utah Jazz don’t dare win another game this season because they could catch the two teams in front of them, which could potentially hurt their upcoming draft position. The Spurs are pretty much logjammed into their final spot as well but have shown that they’re willing to keep the homecourt fans happy with an occasional win. I’m betting on the Spurs at +4.5 with confidence. MLB is here!
