Why Bet The San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs (40-12 SU, 24-26 ATS) have won seven of their last 10 games and come into this affair off a 111-103 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday and superstar small forward Kawhi Leonard returned from a one-game absence due to a quadriceps injury to score a team-high 32 points.
Leonard reached the 30-point plateau for the 16th time this season and has scored in double digits in 81 consecutive games, the longest streak by a San Antonio player since Tim Duncan had a 91-game stretch over 2002-03. “He’s got the whole package,” backup guard Manu Ginobili told reporters. “He’s the main reason we’re getting all these wins when we’re not playing well.”
Why Bet The Detroit Pistons
The Pistons (25-28 SU, 25-28 ATS) have won six of their last 10 games, but an even more impressive seven of their last eight games at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Detroit rolled all over the Los Angeles Lakers in their 121-102 win on Wednesday as center Andre Drummond posted his 34th double-double of season with 24 points and 17 rebounds while adding four blocked shots and three steals. Drummond reached the 20-point plateau for the 11th time this season while dominating the glass.
“I don’t think the league has an answer when he starts to play like that,” Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson said afterward. “It’s all on him each and every night. He can be the most dominant player in the league.” Drummond had 20 points and 17 rebounds when Detroit lost to San Antonio earlier this season.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Spurs beat the Pistons by 10 as a 9-point home favorite the last time they met in November and have won two straight road affairs against the Pistons with both victories coming by double digits.
This time around, I expect San Antonio to be favored by approximately 6-8 points, but I like them to narrowly cover, seeing as how they’ve gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss and a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four meetings against the Pistons.
Over/Under total bettors may want to know that the Over is 6-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams when they play in Detroit and 10-4 in the last 14 meetings overall.
My final score prediction is San Antonio 105 Detroit 95
