NBA Betting: San Antonio Spurs vs. Detroit Pistons

NBA betting Thursday will bring back memories of the NBA Finals from a few basketball betting seasons ago with the Spurs-Pistons game in Detroit.

NBA betting handicappers may not be looking at a preview of the finals but this is still a basketball betting matchup of post season threats.  After a shockingly bad start to the NBA betting season that had many touting them as “washed up” and “over the hill” the San Antonio Spurs got themselves together and are once again a top basketball betting commodity in the western conference.

San Antonio had an overall NBA betting record of 35-16 straight up and 25-24-2 against the NBA betting odds.  San Antonio was atop of the southwest division standings and the Spurs have been one of the hottest teams in NBA betting as of late.

From January 27 through February 11 the Spurs went on an impressive basketball betting run in which they lost just one out of eight games against the spread.  San Antonio has been a solid NBA betting road team with a mark of 15-10-1 against the spread.

As always, Tim Duncan has been a NBA betting asset as he led the Spurs in scoring with an average of 20.8 points per game.  He also led the team in rebounds with an average of 10.5 per game.  The Detroit Pistons have had a slow fall the past few weeks and all of a sudden were in danger of hitting the .500 mark.

Detroit had an overall NBA betting record of 27-24 straight up but were just 20-31 against the NBA betting odds.  Detroit was an atrocious 7-20 against the spread in home action.  The Pistons were in a bad NBA betting stretch from January 23 through February 11 as they got the cash in just two out of ten games.

Just three of those ten games went under the total.  Detroit’s major NBA betting strength is their 6th ranked defense.  Their offense, on the other hand, ranked just 28th.  Detroit scored a NBA betting upset win at San Antonio on December 2 with an 89-77 win as 5.5-point dogs as the game went well under the total of 184.5.
