San Antonio Spurs Vs. Toronto Raptors Odds

  • Spurs Moneyline: +210
  • Raptors Moneyline: -240
  • Spread: Spurs -6
  • Totals: O/U 224.5

San Antonio Spurs starting guard Derrick White has been a consistent playmaker for the team over the last few games and sports betting sites are hosting odds for White to have a big assist game and for the Spurs to win.

While White averages 5.6 assists a game this season, over the last five games he has spiked to 9.6 APG.

White is also coming off of his season-high assist game with 14 in a loss to the Detroit Pistons. If White manages to continue this assist trend and the Spurs win, NBA betting sites offer a big payout.

Player Performance Doubles Odds

  • Derrick White To Have 8+ Assists and SA To Win +354

White finished with at least eight assists in the last four games regardless of how solid the opposing team was defensively.

The Detroit Pistons’ defensive rating is 110.5 this season, among the league’s worse, and White collected 14 assists. White also finished with nine assists against the Memphis Grizzlies whose defensive rating is 108.9 and collected eight assists against the Utah Jazz whose defensive rating is 107.4.

The Toronto Raptors have a defensive rating of 110.6 this season so White should be able to finish with at least eight assists. Sportsbooks do not expect White to have a big assist night, however, as his total is set at 8.5 and the Under is heavily favored.

Over/Under – Assists Derrick White (SA) Odds

  • Over (8.5) +112
  • Under (8.5) -145

Despite the hesitance of the sportsbooks to give shorter odds on the Over, White’s recent play warrants real attention to his assist stats.

Betting On The Spurs To Win?

The hardest part of the Player Performance Doubles will be the Spurs actually winning the game. The Spurs have a win margin of -6.7 over the last three games compared to the Raptors +6 in that same span.

Toronto did recently lose by 45 points to the Cleveland Cavaliers, however, showing that they can lose big and be exploited defensively.

Both teams are near the bottom of their respective conferences so this game could go either way. It is not farfetched to assume the Spurs can come out with the win, specifically if White is dishing out dimes.
