Why Bet The Spurs
Heading into their Thursday night matchup against Golden State, the Spurs had lost two of their last three games and an uncharacteristic seven of their previous 10 games overall. While San Antonio did manage to snap a two-game skid by beating Memphis 100-98 on Monday, the Spurs are in the midst of some struggles we haven’t seen out of the franchise in two decades of sheer excellence. In their last seven losses, San Antonio had given up a whopping 116 points or more five times while allowing 121 or more in three of those contests.
There is some really good news for the Spurs moving forward though and that’s the return of superstar Kawhi Leonard is apparently imminent after he’s missed virtually all season with a quadriceps injury.
"I don’t have a set date right now [for my return]," the 26-year-old Leonard said. "The progress I’ve been making has been great. [The pain] is diminishing. It’s hard to explain, but I’m definitely better. I feel better, and I’m feeling more comfortable."
Why Bet The Thunder
On the flip side of the coin, Oklahoma City had lost two straight by falling at Portland and at home against Houston heading into their own Thursday night matchup against Phoenix. Oklahoma City lost four of nine heading into Thursday night while giving up at least 108 points in every game and 120 or more in two of those defeats.
Spurs Vs Thunder Final Score Prediction
For this Saturday night showdown, I am betting on the Oklahoma City to get the win, much like they did in their 90-87 home win over the Spurs on Dec. 3. My Spurs vs Thunder final score prediction points to a 6-point win by the home team. If the spread for this matchup looks a little too high, I’d back the Spurs to cover the chalk, particularly seeing as how the Thunder are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games and 0-3 ATS in their last three home dates!
