San Antonio Spurs Betting
The Spurs came through with their best performance of the season, beating the heavily-favored Los Angeles Clippers, 107-97, on Friday. LaMarcus Aldridge and Derrick White each scored 17 points and DeMar DeRozan scored 15 to lead a balanced attack for the Spurs. San Antonio also applied great defense on the Clippers’ star duo, as they hounded Kawhi Leonard to 8-for-23 shooting (19 points) and Paul George to 2-for-11 clip (5 points).
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (21.7 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 4.7 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (18.9 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 2.5 APG), Bryn Forbes (12.8 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 1.9 APG)
Detroit Pistons Betting
The Detroit Pistons still couldn’t figure how to beat the Charlotte Hornets. For the third consecutive time this season and 8th overall, the Pistons fell to Michael Jordan-owned team, 110-107. Andre Drummond racked up 15 points and 19 rebounds, Derrick Rose tallied 23 and Luke Kennard fired for 21, but still, the Pistons just couldn’t make the right plays late to nip the Hornets on their home floor.

San Antonio Spurs vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks
It seems that online bookmakers aren’t quite convinced with the Spurs’ recent win vs. the Clippers. San Antonio is still the dogs in this game, but they looked like a different in their recent win against a Western Conference elite.
Moneyline: The Spurs are 2-1 SU against the Pistons in the last three games, but just 2-7 on the road. I am going all-in on the Spurs to win this game based on the defense and overall team effort I saw from them against the Clippers.
ATS: The Spurs will not only cover the NBA spread, but they are also poised to win straight up.
TOTALs: The total opened at 219.5 points. The Spurs’ output the last five games has been playing between 101 to 111 points. The Pistons’ scores over the last five contests are also roaming within the same ballpark. For that, I pick UNDER.
Score Prediction: 107-104 Spurs
