Basketball betting handicappers try and figure out the best value in this matchup of struggling teams in LA. Basketball betting fans have not adapted yet to the newer version of the San Antonio Spurs, who have had an alarming start to the NBA basketball betting season.
San Antonio opened with a record of 3-5 straight up and an even worse 2-6 against the NBA betting odds, which is indicative of their reputation within the basketball betting public as a power and quality team even though that looks less and less to be the actual basketball betting reality for this year.
San Antonio did score a 77-75 home win over Houston as 6-point home dogs against the basketball betting odds but whether that is going to stop the bleeding or is just a fluke remains to be seen as the basketball betting public is likely to be more careful about “Stepping out” on the Spurs, which may actually enhance their basketball betting value if they continue to struggle straight up.
San Antonio went under the basketball betting total in 5 of their first 8 games including four unders in their first 5 road games against the basketball betting totals. Tony Parker led San Antonio in scoring to start the basketball betting season with an average of 27.4-points per game.
Parker also led in assists with close to 6-per game while Tim Duncan led the Spurs in rebounding to start the basketball betting season with an average of 9.6-per game. San Antonio’s big problem at the start of the basketball betting season was on offense as they ranked 26th, while ranking 12th on defense.
The Los Angeles Clippers opened the NBA basketball betting season with a record of 1-7 both straight up and against the NBA betting odds. The Clippers were 1-5 against the basketball betting odds at home to start the season. LA went an even 4-4 split against the basketball betting over/under board to start the season including 3-3 at home.
The Clippers started the basketball betting season ranked a hopeless 30th on offense while ranking a poor 25th on defense.
