Spurs fall in Los Angeles
San Antonio began a West Coast road trip this week in Los Angeles with losses to the Clippers and Lakers. The Spurs are 22-28 on the season, 8-16 on the road, 22-27-1 against the spread and 30-20 with the over.
The Spurs are giving up 114.1 points per game this season while opponents shoot 46.4 percent from the field.

San Antonio is led by DeMar DeRozan, who is putting up 23.2 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 18.8 points and 7.4 rebounds per contest.
Blazers end win streak
Portland had a four-game win streak come to an end on Tuesday in a 127-99 loss at Denver. The Blazers are 23-28 on the season, 13-11 at home, 20-29-2 against the spread and 28-23 with the over.

NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as an underdog.
The Blazers are 2-6-1 against the spread in their last nine games as a favorite and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games.
These two have split the first two meetings this season, but the Blazers covered the spread in both games. I like Portland tonight as well. The Blazers have been playing quite well as of late. They ran into a tough Utah defense on Tuesday, but the Spurs definitely don’t have that kind of defense. San Antonio will give up points in droves and Lillard should light them up. I don’t think the Spurs have the offense to keep pace with the Blazer tonight.
NBA Prediction: Portland Trail Blazers -3.5
