We go over some of the best betting options for Saturday’s matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers.

The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail Blazers are on opposite ends of the spectrum ahead of their Saturday matchup. Portland is running hot and has won five of its last seven games to claim the sixth seed in the Western Conference. The Spurs, on the other hand, have lost five of their last six games and sit at 10th in the standings. The Blazers seem to have an edge on paper but the underdogs could cover the spread. We’ll go over the best betting options worth considering on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Spurs vs. Trail Blazers, 10:00 p.m. ET, NBA League Pass

Pick ATS: Spurs -6

San Antonio has been one of the NBA’s best teams against the spread this year. The Spurs have covered in nearly 55% of their games. The season series between these two teams is even at 1-1 and both games have been decided by a single point. The Trail Blazers are on a roll but have only covered in just over half of their games. Portland is just 13-20 ATS at home while San Antonio has covered more times on the road (22) than any team in the NBA.

Player Prop: Dejounte Murray to record a double-double (+290)

Murray has had fairly average rebounding and assist numbers this year but has Portland’s number. The Trail Blazers’ defensive blackout has been notoriously bad all year and Murray is averaging just shy of a triple-double against them.
