Spurs at Trail Blazers picks and predictions
Trail Blazers 124, Spurs 118
The Blazers (-340), on the second night of a back-to-back after a tough loss, aren’t worth a wager. Similarly, the Spurs (+310) have no value given their road record.
LEAN SPURS +7.5 (-102).
The Blazers showed in blowing a lead on Sunday that they cannot be trusted. They have failed to cover their last 3 games and are 3-7 ATS over their last 10. Portland is also 11-13 ATS after a loss.
The Spurs have covered 2 outings in a row and are 4-1 ATS over their last 5 games as an underdog of 7.5 or more points. San Antonio should be able to keep this one close as it has done consistently in the last few weeks. Back the SPURS +7.5 (-102).
BET OVER 241.5 (-105).
The Spurs play awful defense and play at a high-tempo pace. They rank 8th in the NBA in pace and sit last in opponents’ field goal percentage and opponents’ 3-point field goal percentage.
The Blazers rank 23rd in the NBA in pace but are led in scoring by two guards and should be willing to keep up. San Antonio has gone Over in 5 of its last 6 and has allowed 130 or more points in 4 of its last 5. While 19-26-1 O/U on the season, Portland has gone Over in 3 of its last 6.
Ultimately, back the OVER 241.5 (-105).
