Portland Trail Blazers Betting
Neil Olshey’s decision to let go of several defensive lynchpins last summer are biting the Blazers this year as the team ranks 22nd in the league in points allowed per game (113.92). The pace has certainly become a lot faster and it is expected to increase more with the arrival of trigger-happy Carmelo Anthony, who is signed to a non-guaranteed contract.
Players to Watch: Damian Lillard (30.5 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 6.9 APG), C.J. McCollum (20.1 PPG, 4.4 RPG, 3.1 APG), Hassan Whiteside (14.8 PPG, 12.2 RPG, 1.0 APG)
San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs are dealing with one of the worst losing streaks in 23 years. Although San Antonio has had longer losing streak before, losing to sub .500 teams like the Magic and Grizzlies should alarm the bell for head coach Gregg Popovic and GM RC Buford. Right now, DeMar DeRozan is at the center of a trade rumor linking him to Orlando. It will be interesting what steps the Spurs are about to make in order to address the losing trend.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (20.1 PPG, 4.9 RPG, 4.8 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (17.9 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 2.4 APG), Bryn Forbes (14.3 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Portland Trail Blazers vs San Antonio Spurs Betting Picks
The prolonged absence of big men Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins only means more load for Hassan Whiteside, who has been a defensive liability on the floor for the Blazers. The Spurs will once again rest young guard DeJounte Murray as part of the injury protocol after coming off a major knee injury. Find the best NBA betting picks and more at Betnow.
