San Antonio Spurs Betting

It has not exactly been a season to remember for the Spurs who are likely to miss the NBA playoff bus. And with LaMarcus Aldridge questionable, it will be interesting who Gregg Popovich turns to. DeMar Derozan remains the focal point on offense although Trey Lyles led them last time out. This season, San Antonio is averaging 112.9 points per game but giving up 114.5 points to opponents. Regardless, the Spurs should have enough talent to pull this one off and sweep the season series with Charlotte.

Players to watch: D. DeRozan SF 56 GP 56 GS 34.1 MIN 22.6 PTS 0.6 OR 5 DR 5.6 REB 5.3 AST 1 STL 0.3 BLK 2.5 TO 2.7 PF 2.2 AST/TO 21.79 PER

Charlotte Hornets Betting

If Charlotte Hornets has any intention of winning this one, they need to get better offense. The Hornets are struggling offensively and with Devonte Graham doubtful, someone has to step up. Terry Rozier could be that guy with some help from Miles Bridges. Aside from that, they need to improve on defense. They are allowing the opposition 114.5 points per contest, something you don’t want to give to the Spurs.

Players to Watch: D. Graham PG 58 GP 48 GS 35 MIN 17.7 PTS 0.7 OR 2.8 DR 3.5 REB 7.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.3 BLK 2.9 TO 1.9 PF 2.6 AST/TO 15.27 PER
