This NBA betting preview for the San Antonio Spurs vs. Portland Trail Blazers game is brought to you by SBG Global, where the opening line was: Spurs - 1.5 ,  Total  178

The Portland Trail Blazers will try and recover from a bad opening game loss to the Lakers as they host the San Antonio Spurs on Friday.  Not only did the Blazers get blown out at Los Angeles, they lost Greg Oden to yet another injury.  It will not be easy for the Blazers on Friday considering the Spurs are also coming off a loss. SBG Global reports that early NBA betting has the public taking Spurs on the Road. 

The Spurs have owned the Blazers in this series lately.  They have won the last 12 times against Portland. San Antonio has won 19 of the last 20 games overall with Portland's only win during that span coming at home in 2005.

 

Last year the Blazers were led by Martell Webster who averaged a team-best 19 points per game against the Spurs.  Tony Parker averaged 18 points, 4 rebounds and 5.7 assists vs. Portland last season. Tim Duncan added 17.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in three games.  San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich is 31-13 in his career against Portland.  One problem for the Spurs in this game could be the absence of guard Manu Ginobili.  The Spurs still have Tim Duncan and Tony Parker but missing Ginobili could be a big problem in this matchup against the Blazers.

 

Here are the NBA betting stats for Friday's game.  The Spurs are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. the Northwest. The Spurs are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games. The Spurs are 20-9 ATS in the last 29 meetings between the two teams.

 

The Trail Blazers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The Trail Blazers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the two teams.

 

SBG Global Current Line: Spurs -  2 ,  Total  178

 

The Under is 8-0 in the Spurs last 8 overall. The Under is 5-0 in the Spurs last 5 road games. The Under is 8-0 in the Spurs last 8 vs. the Western Conference.
