Portland Trail Blazers have a 32-21 record (29-24 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the fourth place of the West.

San Antonio Spurs have a 32-24 record (31-24-1 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Rockets in the 5th place of the West. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Warriors with a 102-141 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by DeMar DeRozan with 21.3 ppg, adding 6.2 boards and a team high 6.2 dimes per game. He is followed by LaMarcus Aldridge with 21.2 ppg and a team high 8.9 boards per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once at home by 13 points. Blazers have a 22-8 home record, while the Spurs are 10-17 on the road. Blazers are better both offensively, scoring 113 ppg to Spurs’ 112.4 and defensively, allowing 110.2 ppg to Spurs’ 110.9. Spurs have better percentages both in field goals (47.9% to 46.3%) and in 3-pointers (40.5% to 36.3%). Spurs are better both in dimes made (24.9 to 22.8) and in turnovers committed (12.3 to 13.7), while Blazers are better in boards grabbed (47.9 to 44.2). Spurs have been very weak on the road this season and Vegas odds give the Blazers a -6 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home victory.
