NBA Betting Trends

San Antonio

The Spurs are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 road games. San Antonio is 1-9 ATS in its last 10 road games versus a team with a winning home record. 


The Trail Blazers are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five home games versus the Spurs. The over is 20-8 in the last 28 meetings.


San Antonio struggled on the road last season and a trip to Portland won't be easy. The Trail Blazers were impressive in downing the Lakers and have a core that has good chemistry with each other. While Portland hasn't had the best of luck in home games versus San Antonio, I think it builds off Thursday's win with another impressive performance here to cover the spread.
