San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs along with the Portland Trail Blazers and New Orleans Pelicans are looking to make a big push for the final spot of the NBA Western Conference playoff picture. Their current record is 24-31 and they are 4 games behind the Memphis Grizzlies. On the road, this team has lost 19 of their 29 games and they need to find ways to improve on the road if they want to get a chance to get in the playoffs. DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge will always get good numbers but they will need their bench to step up big time.
