San Antonio Spurs Betting

The San Antonio Spurs are now carrying a winning record of 7-6 and sits at the sixth-best record in the NBA Western Conference. This team won five of their last seven games which resulted in the climb. Their most recent matchup was with the Houston Rockets and won over them by a wide margin of 22 points, 103-91. The Spurs got the biggest contribution from DeMar DeRozan doing 24 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and a block. Dejounte Murray chipped in with a double-double of 18 points and ten boards but LaMarcus Aldridge is showing his age already with just four points.

Players to watch: D. DeRozan SF 11 GP 11 GS 34.7 MIN 20.7 PTS 0.9 OR 4.8 DR 5.7 REB 6.7 AST 1 STL 0.7 BLK 1.5 TO 2 PF 4.6 AST/TO 21.89 PER

Portland Trail Blazers Betting

The Portland Trail Blazers are not the fifth-best team in the NBA Western Conference and just one game behind the Phoenix Suns with a record of 7-4. The team immediately bounced back from the bad loss from the Indiana Pacers and that was their only loss in the last five games. Their most recent match was against the Atlanta Hawks and that game was won by six, 112-106. Damian Lillard is going to be expected to carry more load than he is already doing with the recent injury to CJ McCollum. The injuries are starting to pile up as Jusuf Nurkic is going to expect a significant amount of time as well.

Players to Watch: D. Lillard PG 13 GP 13 GS 36.2 MIN 27.6 PTS 0.3 OR 4.5 DR 4.8 REB 6.8 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.9 TO 1.4 PF 2.3 AST/TO 24.23 PER
