NBA Betting – San Antonio Spurs at Houston Rockets

NBA betting on Saturday includes a Texas rivalry between the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets.

The pro basketball betting line has the Rockets favored over the Spurs in this matchup.

NBA betting scheduling information has a couple of interesting points for this game on Saturday.  The Spurs are in a back to back situation according to the pro basketball betting schedule, as they played at home against Memphis last night.  The Rockets are also in a back-to-back but in a much easier situation since they are playing the first half of two straight games as they are at Denver tomorrow night according to the NBA betting schedule.

The Rockets definitely have some advantages in this NBA betting matchup, simply because the Spurs are playing shorthanded.  San Antonio has been missing Manu Ginobili all season and now they are without Tony Parker. The Spurs are trying to stay above water until their two stars return.  Tim Duncan has been carrying the load but the team struggles to give him scoring support according to NBA betting stats.  The Rockets have had injury issues of their own, although not as serious.  Yao Ming, Tracy McGrady and Ron Artest have all had nagging injuries at times this season. 

NBA betting history shows that the Spurs have won 6 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams.  It is the Rockets though, that are 6-4 against the basketball betting line.  Earlier this month the Spurs won 77-75 at home according to NBA betting results.  Last year the teams met four times and the teams split their four games according to NBA betting stats.  At Houston, the Spurs have won three of the last five games according to pro basketball betting stats.

Looking at the NBA betting total we see that the under has some huge trends. Eight of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the NBA betting number.  Four of the last five games between the two teams have gone under the pro basketball betting total, including the last four in a row.
