Spurs fall in Memphis

San Antonio is coming off a 134-121 loss at Memphis on Friday, ending a two-game win streak for the Spurs. It also put an end to a three-game cover streak. San Antonio is 16-21 on the season, 5-12 on the road, 14-22-1 against the spread and 24-13 with the over.

The Spurs are putting up 114.2 points per game this season while shooting 47.4 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from the arc. Defensively, San Antonio is allowing 115.3 points per game while opponents shoot 46.4 percent against them. DeMar DeRozan is leading the Spurs with 22.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists per contest. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 19.2 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Raptors struggling to cover

Toronto is coming off a 112-110 OT win at Charlotte on Wednesday. The Raptors have failed to cover in three of their last four games. Toronto is 25-13 on the season, 14-6 at home, 21-17 against the spread and 19-18-1 with the under.

The Raptors are giving up just 105.2 points per game this season on defense while holding opponents to 42.4 percent from the field. Offensively, Toronto is averaging 110.5 points per game while shooting 44.6 percent as a squad. Toronto has been without leader Pascal Siakam for a while due to a groin injury, but he is listed as questionable to play tonight. Siakam is averaging 25.1 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. Kyle Lowry is adding 20.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 7.6 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

San Antonio

The Spurs are 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven road games and 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight games following a loss.

Toronto

The Raptors are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games playing on three or more days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last five games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

Prediction:

These two haven’t met this season, but the Spurs have covered in six straight meetings with the Raptors. Gregg Popovich seems to have a good game plan for the Raptors and the Spurs have been able to do a good job of bouncing back from losses lately. Toronto could get Siakam back, but the odds seem more likely he will return next week. The Raptors haven’t been looking terribly sharp in recent weeks, so I think that San Antonio can come in and get the upset tonight.
