San Antonio Spurs Vs. Portland Trail Blazers – NBA Picks & Predictions | Betting Odds
The Portland Trail Blazers will be seating at home waiting for the San Antonio Spurs to show up on Thursday Night. The Spurs have to deal with the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday before they can start thinking of the Blazers. These back-to-back matchups might be brutal for San Antonio. The Blazers took a fat L against the Miami Heat on Tuesday. Portland was a 7.5-point favorite at home and ended up losing by 10. That’s a 17-point swing no one saw coming. It also ended a three-game winning streak against the spread they had going.
San Antonio Spurs Vs. Portland Trail Blazers Predictions
Portland has been a very profitable team since late December to this point, so we are not going to overreact to a bad loss. The Blazers have covered the spread in 12 of the last 17 games played. And each of the previous five has gone OVER the game total. It just happened that Miami had their number on Tuesday. The last time the Blazers faced the Spurs, San Antonio smashed Portland 131-118, covering the spread as a 1-point home dog.
The previous five games in the series have alternated wins for each franchise. If the trend continues, it should be the Blazers coming out as winners on Thursday. The Spurs had five straight wins before inexplicably dropping one against the Kings in Sacramento on Monday. Dealing with the Warriors on Wednesday Night before taking on Portland is less than an ideal scenario for San Antonio.
The Spurs will go right into the toughest part of their schedule, playing eight straight road games in the next two weeks. With visits to Golden State, Portland, Utah and Toronto, I would be shocked if San Antonio puts together a winning streak during the next 14 days. By betting on Portland on Thursday, I get the more rested team playing at home trying to get back from an awful loss in their last outing. San Antonio might be gassed by the third quarter. Playing two playoff teams on the road is no joke.
What the play? Blazers.
