Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: San Antonio. As of Thursday afternoon, 72 percent of public bets have sided with the visiting Spurs.

Injury Report: Spurs forward Danny Green has missed the last four games with a groin strain and is questionable tonight. Tony Parker is doubtful after spraining his ankle last game. Kawhi Leonard has missed the last two games with a partial tear in his shoulder and will be out again tonight. Rudy Gay is still out with a heel injury, but should return in the next couple of weeks. The Lakers have no injuries to report. 

Who the Trends Like: San Antonio is 4-0 ATS in its last four games against an opponent with a winning percentage below .400. The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Los Angeles and 7-1 in the last eight meetings overall.

Who We Like: With so many injuries, the Spurs don't look quite as intimidating. After a nine-game losing streak, LA has bounced back with home wins in its last two games and I believe it will take advantage of San Antonio being depleted tonight. A completely healthy Lakers team is fun to watch and I think they'll show their upside in this contest.
