Blazers vs. Spurs Prediction
No team has beaten the Spurs on their home court this season and it's unlikely that the struggling Trail Blazers will accomplish the feat when the two teams meet tonight at 8:30PM ET.
San Antonio opened as 11.5-point favorites for tonight's game and that's where the number currently sits according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. As for the total, it opened at 203.5 but has been bet up a full point to 204.5.
Portland looked as if it was going to challenge Memphis for the No. 5 spot in the Western Conference while winning 18 of 22 games through March 1. But losses in five of their last seven games have the Blazers locked into a four-way battle between themselves, the Rockets, the Mavericks and Jazz for one of the final three spots in the conference.
The Spurs, meanwhile, don't look like they're prepared to slow down any time soon. They extended their home wining streak to 42 straight games by crushing the Clippers 108-87 on Tuesday night. Seeing as how the Blazers have allowed at least 116 points in each of their last six losses, the Spurs should cruise again tonight.
