The team with the best record in the league has a huge test on Monday in NBA betting as the San Antonio Spurs host the Orlando Magic.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Spurs have the best record in the NBA at 11-1.  They will put that great record to the test on Monday as they host Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic in a game you can see on NBA-TV.  It should be a great game to make an NBA bet on at SBG.

Best Start Ever for the Spurs
San Antonio is off to their best start in team history at 11-1.  They looked extremely good again on Saturday as they routed Cleveland 116-92. The Spurs shot the ball very well again and that has been the case almost all season. They have gone over the 100 point mark in eight of their 12 games. The Spurs are winning both at home and on the road. They will get their biggest test of the season on Monday against Orlando who leads the league in defense.

Spurs Balance
The Spurs are winning with a lineup that is very balanced.  On Saturday, six different players scored in double figures. Three other players had eight points each. Tony Parker is playing superb and has been the team’s most valuable player this season. The Spurs are second in the league in points per game and the offense is coming from Parker, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan and even players like Richard Jefferson and Tiago Splitter are showing up.  The Spurs are simply tough to defend.

Orlando is 9-3 on the season so they are not that far behind the Spurs in terms of overall record. The Magic are very good defensively and they have enough offense to win any game.  This should be a great matchup against the Spurs and a popular one to make an NBA bet on.
