Spurs vs. Trail Blazers Prediction & Pick

Both teams waved the white flag awhile ago. The Blazers have plummeted from contention after a solid start, going 7-20 over their last 27 games to fall to 13th in the Western Conference. The Spurs are even worse at 20-59, which puts them just a half game out of last place in the West.

Both teams have every incentive to lose this game, but one of them has to win. San Antonio has at least shown a little bit of fight on its home court lately, going 4-5 in its last nine home games with two of those losses coming in overtime. Portland, on the other hand, has lost 12 of its last 14 and appears totally checked out.

This projects to be a close game, but give the Spurs the edge at home.

Final Score Prediction: Spurs: 117 | Trail Blazers: 110

Spurs vs. Trail Blazers Best Bet

Don't expect a ton of points to be scored here. The Spurs have scored fewer than 100 points in four of their last eight games while the Trail Blazers have done so in three of their last seven. It's surprising to see such a high total here when both teams are subpar offensively and Portland plays at one of the slowest paces in the league.

Take the Under.

Bet: Under 227.5 Points (-110)
