While not top tier favorites they have enough to make a strong run come spring.

Stats to Consider
San Antonio has been a strong NBA betting online value on the road. As an example, the Spurs have covered seven of their last nine away from home.

And five of their last six home court matchups went over the total.
Team vs. Team
Late results in this series show San Antonio with the sportsbook advantage. Portland has covered the spread in just one of their last five games against the Spurs. Seven of the last eight between these teams have gone over the total. However, Moda Center has proven to be a classic home court advantage for the Blazers. The Spurs have paid in just one of their last four visits to Portland. Three of those four games went over the total.
Matchup to Watch
Despite their recent woes San Antonio has been a strong NBA betting online value as a road team. But offsetting that is Portland’s strong home court advantage both overall and in this series.
