Portland Trail Blazers vs San Antonio Spurs Betting Picks
Bet on NBA games now to start earning massive payout at BetNow. McCollum already announced that it’s going to be a win-or-bust year for the Blazers. It’s a bold statement indeed from the Blazers star, but if they really want to make a lot of noise this season, they better beat the Spurs who are no strangers to winning big games.
Moneyline: The Blazers are +180 favorites entering into Monday night’s game with the Spurs. Bettors should understand that they are playing a risky game if they drop a big amount on a Blazers win because the Spurs aren’t pushovers.
ATS: Portland has a 5-5 ATS record vs. Houston in their last 10 meetings, making it a lot harder to pick the right bet. But taking the Spurs’ form in the last two games into account, my pick is for the Spurs to beat the Blazers by five points.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 222.5 points. San Antonio is averaging 122.00 points per game through their first two games while Portland is scoring 111.00 per contest. This game will be a high-scoring game. No longer the team that featured some of the best defensive players in the game, the Spurs have now focused more on pilling up the points these past two seasons. The Blazers have the lethal duo of Lillard and McCollum. That only assures an entertaining, gunslinging game in San Antonio.
Score Prediction: 129-122 Spurs
