Portland Trailblazers vs. San Antonio Spurs
211 ov-110 at BETONLINE
03/12 9:35 PM EST NBA (617) PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS VS (618) SAN ANTONIO SPURS
Take: over the total.
Reason: Your free pick for Wednesday, March 12th, 2014, comes in the NBA as Portland and San Antonio meet in the Alamodome. Portland is not much of a defensive team, 11th in the NBA in field goal shooting defense, allowing .453%, 24th in points allowed. The offense, though, loves to run down opponents, second in the NBA in points scored, tops in assists. It's the second of a back to back spot for both teams, which will mean tired legs on defense. The over is 16-7 in the Trail Blazers last 23 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. After playing a slow paced game with Memphis, the Blazrs will look forward to running and gunning against a San Antonio team that can play any style, 7th in the league in points scored. San Antonio rolled to a 111-87 win at home against Miami last week in an NBA finals rematch. The Spurs are the healthiest they've been all season, loaded with depth. The Spurs have been on an offensive tear since Chicago limited them to their third-lowest point total of the season, averaging 106.6 over the ensuing 16 games to overcome the 101.6 they've allowed. The Over is 11-3 in the Spurs last 14 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and the over is 29-14-1 in the Spurs last 44 home games. And when these teams meet the over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings. Play the Blazers/Spurs over the total.

Auburn won both match ups this season in rather convincing fashion by 16 points at home and 5 points on the road and they did so by shooting over 52% from the field in both games while Auburn went just 48-113. Every other statistical category flipped with home and away and was pretty even. I like a few things about the Gamecocks chances. For one it is hard to beat a team three times when you are evenly matched. South Carolina had 10 more shots in the two match ups this season and they were the better overall conference team. South Carolina finished the season with an impressive road win and they beat Kentucky at home as a double digit dog in 2 of their last 3 games. Auburn on the other hand is just 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 neutral site match ups and I don't think they are the better team. The only reason this is a free pick is I'm not sure how South Carolina's players are going to react to HC Frank Martin after suspension.
