NBA Betting Trends

San Antonio

The Spurs are 39-17-1 ATS in their last 57 Friday games. San Antonio is 1-4 ATS in its last five road games.

Philadelphia

The Sixers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven Friday games. Philadelphia is 1-5 ATS in its last six games overall.

Prediction:

The 76ers have shaken off a slump with a couple wins in a row, even if they did make it tough on themselves by having to rally in the fourth quarter past New York. Philadelphia has yet to lose at home and I think it can take advantage of a slumping San Antonio team that is decidedly worse away from home. The spread is a little wide, but I can see the Sixers having it fairly easy and covering here. Take the team playing the better basketball at the moment.
