Possible Finals Preview in San Antonio

Kawhi Leonard San Antonio Spurs Patrick Patterson Toronto Raptors NBA

A potential NBA Finals preview is on display when the San Antonio Spurs host the Toronto Raptors Saturday night. In the wake of the Golden State Warriors losing their first home game of the season Friday, all eyes will be on the Spurs to see if they can improve their pristine home record to 39-0.

Shark Bites
  • Home team is 4-0 ATS in the previous four meetings.
  • Raptors are 1-5 ATS in their last six versus the Western Conference.
  • OVER is 4-1 in the previous five meetings.

The Raptors enter Saturday’s slate 2.5 games back of the Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland Cavaliers. They played a hard-fought game Friday night, escaping the Memphis Grizzlies with a 99-95 win, but just missed covering the number as 5.5-point chalk.

Don’t let the second of back-to-backs scare you, though. The Raps have gone 6-0 straight up and 5-1 against the spread in their last six games with zero days off and have covered the spread in four straight in that situation.

The Spurs enter Saturday’s game off of back-to-back wins but failed to cover the whopping 19-point chalk in their 100-92 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans their last time out. The Spurs currently have 63 wins and one more would establish a new franchise record.

The two played back on December 9 and it was the Raptors who came out on top with a 97-94 win as 6-point home dogs.
