  • the road team is 6-1 Against The Spread in the last 7 meetings between San Antonio and Houston

Gambling911.com has your Friday NBA Playoffs betting preview.

The Cavs, now up 2-0 in this round of the NBA Playoffs, beat Toronto 125-103.

LeBron James hopped Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the career playoff scoring list with 39 points scored against the Raptors Wednesday night.

Toronto has lost their last three games at home to Cleveland and were listed as a +3 to +3.5 home dog in this one.

The Spurs rebounded following a Game 1 shock upset to beat the Rockets 121-96, but in doing so they also lost their big star Tony Parker.  He had to be carried off the court with a leg injury that will sideline him for the remainder of the Playoffs.

There is some good argument for taking the OVER in the Spurs-Rockets Game 3 of the NBA Playoffs.  The total was coming in at 123.5.  The OVER is 6-0 in the Spurs last 6 overall and 8-1 in the Rockets last 9 Conference Semifinals games.

Despite this, the UNDER has gone 4-0 in the last four games of this series played in Houston.

The Rockets are a -4.5 to -5 home favorite here.
