San Antonio Spurs Betting
For the past ten games, the Spurs are having a hard time keeping it together as they lost seven of their last ten games. They have fallen to 11th place in the playoff picture but they need to come up with something quick in order to salvage the season. DeMar DeRozan has been doing his very best to keep the team afloat providing 22.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game but they are also missing the services of LaMarcus Aldridge so far in the past games as well. DeRozan needs his supporting cast to step up as they are lacking the firepower to keep up with faster teams.
