San Antonio has alternated wins and losses over its last six games, as it looks to bounce back from a 111-100 defeat to the Indiana Pacers as four-point home favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total in its last four affairs. The Spurs are 7-2 SU on the road, including a 3-0 mark versus Eastern Conference opponents, which is important to consider when making your NBA betting picks Tuesday night. San Antonio is 5-0 ATS in its last five games following a double-digit loss at home.
The Spurs won both games against the Raptors during the 2012-13 campaign, with point guard Tony Parker averaging 22.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.0 assists. San Antonio has won three straight on the road against Toronto and five consecutive overall in the series, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro basketball odds page. The team has outscored opponents by an average of 7.7 points per game.
Toronto snapped a five-game losing streak by picking up a 106-94 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers as six-point road underdogs Sunday, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in four contests. The Raptors are led on the offensive end by the play of point guard Kyle Lowry, who has paced the club in assists in 11 consecutive games. It’s important to point out that the club just made a trade to acquire Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Chuck Hayes and Patrick Patterson from Sacramento—sending Rudy Gay, Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy the other way. Toronto is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five home meetings in this series.
The Raptors have only one player averaging more than 15 points a contest, with guard DeMar DeRozan pouring in a team-high 21.6. Toronto will certainly be up against it offensively, as it prepares to face a team that gives up an average of just 91.2 points on the road.
Sports bettors will likely back the Spurs due to their 17-5 ATS mark on two days rest in their last 22 opportunities.
