15* NBA Friday Total ANNIHILATOR on Spurs/Blazers UNDER 194
Portland vs. San Antonio,
01/13/2012 20:30 EDT,
Score: 83 - 99
Total: -110/+194 Under
The Spurs and Blazers will take part in a defensive battle tonight. Oddsmakers have missed their mark badly by setting the bar way too high in this one. I'll gladly take advantage by backing the UNDER as all signs points toward a low-scoring affair.
Just looking at Portland's road numbers, it's easy to see why I'm siding with the UNDER tonight. The Blazers are scoring 89.3 points/game on the road and allowing 96.0 points/game for an average combined score of 185.3 points/game. Scoring won't get any easier for Portland tonight as they're up against a San Antonio team that gives up just 91.3 points/game at home.
The biggest reason for this play is recent head-to-head games between these teams. The Blazers and Spurs have combined to score 194 or less points in 10 straight meetings. That makes for a perfect 10-0 system backing the UNDER pertaining to tonight's total set. Bet the UNDER in this game Friday.
