The San Antonio Spurs have lost 10 of their last 14 games and don’t cover numbers, and they’re only winning by an average of 2.4 points in the favorite role. However, the Toronto Raptors continue to pile up the bizarre losses and they’re on the end of a back to back. The Raptors feel more and more like a team that’s waiting for the season to come to an end. With the rest advantage, I’ll give the edge to the Spurs, however, there’s probably better betting options on Wednesday’s card.
