San Antonio Spurs Betting

The San Antonio Spurs have been a model of consistency over the past two decades, winning five NBA titles and competing in the playoffs every single year since 1998. However, that reputation is in danger of falling apart as the Spurs fall to below .500 after 11 games into the season. San Antonio is no longer a tough defensive team like they used to be in the past. They are allowing teams to score an average of 114 points per game (23rd in the league) on 47.5 FG% (26th).

Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (20.1 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 4.8 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (17.9 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 2.4 APG), Bryn Forbes (14.3 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic scored their biggest win of the season, stunning the heavily-favored Philadelphia 76ers, 112-97, last Wednesday. Orlando used a balanced attack as seven players scored in double figures. All-Star center Nikola Vucevic racked up 25 points and 12 boards, while Aaron Gordon recorded 18 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assist in a terrific all-around performance.

Players to Watch: Nikola Vucevic (17.8 PPG, 11.4 RPG, 3.1 APG), Evan Fournier (15.3 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 3.1 APG), Aaron Gordon (14.0 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 3.1 APG)

San Antonio Spurs vs Orlando Magic Betting Picks

The Spurs sport a 7-3 edge over the Magic with an average winning margin of 10 points in their last 10 meetings. Then again, San Antonio is going through some trials this year as bad defense, poor shooting from beyond the arc (36 3PT%) and inconsistent productions from their stars (LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan) have put the team in this predicament.

Moneyline: The Spurs, despite an ugly 1-3 record on the road, will prevail on Friday based on their dominant record over the Magic in their last 10 games.

ATS: The Spurs are also a bad ATS performer at 2-9, though an NBA winning margin of 18 points over the Magic in their recent three games suggests an easy night for the visiting team.

TOTALs: This game will go OVER the NBA over/under totals of 208.5 points. Although the Magic has the lowest output per game at 99 PPG, the total has gone OVER in 4 of the Spurs’ last six games.

Score Prediction: 111-101 Spurs
