NBA Predictions: San Antonio Spurs @ Portland Trail Blazers
Date: Thursday, December 13th, 10:30 ET
Location: Rose Garden, Portland, OR
NBA Betting Odds: San Antonio -5.5
Spurs vs. Trail Blazers NBA TV Schedule: TNT
Are the Spurs really crashing back to earth this year? They were beaten by the Utah Jazz last night in an ugly 99-96 loss, and we have to remember that they have played a heck of a lot of basketball over the course of just the last three days and have done a lot of traveling as well. The home team has won seven of the last nine in this series SU and is 6-3 ATS in those games. Portland might only be 5-4 SU at home this year, but that 99-80 loss to the Sacramento Kings a few nights ago really might have shaken up the club. Historically, the Rose Garden is a very tough place to come play ball, and the Spurs are going to find that out once again on Thursday night. It sounds hopeful that both G Wesley Matthews and F Nicolas Batum are going to be back in the lineup tonight for the Trail Blazers, and that’s only going to make the case that much stronger to go with the hosts over a weary San Antonio team that is clearly one of the most overrated teams from an ATS standpoint over the course of the last year and a half.
