San Antonio Spurs Betting
The Spurs’ campaign has been a catastrophe after racking up three straight wins to start the season. San Antonio lost their last 7 games and 10 of their last 12 games, putting them in unfamiliar territory at the cellar of the Western Conference standings. Wednesday’s 138-132 loss to the Wizards has added another wrinkle to their ongoing ordeal. DeMar DeRozan scored a team-high 31 points, but their defense allowed the Wizards to score more than 30 points in three of four quarters.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (21.7 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 4.8 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (17.9 PPG, 6.9 RPG, 2.5 APG), Bryn Forbes (14.5 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 1.6 APG)
Philadelphia 76ers Betting
The Philadelphia 76ers scored back-to-back wins over the Cleveland Cavaliers and the New York Knicks, though neither wins was that impressive. Their latest game vs. the Knicks saw Ben Simmons hitting his first career three-pointer in the NBA, and another mediocre shooting performance from the Sixers, who shot just 43.8 percent from the field and 69 percent from the free-throw line.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (22.9 PPG, 11.5 RPG, 3.1 APG), Tobias Harris (17.4 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 3.6 APG), Josh Richardson (14.8 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 3.8 APG)

San Antonio Spurs vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Picks
Analysis: The Spurs have been playing healthy since the start of the season, though their defense (116 points allowed per game) and three-point shooting (35 percent) are absolutely ailing. Josh Richardson’s hip injury could force him out of Friday’s ball game, giving Furkan Korkmaz another opportunity to shine.
Moneyline: The Sixers are 2-1 against the Spurs in their last three meetings and perfect 5-0 at Wells Fargo Center. Philadelphia is clearly one of the best NBA betting picks for Friday’s schedule, considering they will be facing a struggling Spurs team along with their dominant record on their home floor.
ATS: The Spurs have been terrible against the spread (3-12), though their last four losses have been decided by a single digit. I won’t be surprised if the road team salvaged an ATS win in Philadelphia since the Sixers barely defeated the Spurs in their last meeting, 122-120.
TOTALs: The total for this game will go OVER 224 points. The Spurs are allowing opponents to score too many points this season. The Sixers aren’t much but they are still norming 109 points per contest.
Score Prediction: 118-114 Spurs
