The San Antonio Spurs invade the Toyota Center to battle the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night. Here’s a Spurs vs Raptors Prediction.

San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs look to have moved on from their ugly five-game losing streak as they are now aiming for a third straight win after routing the Pacers in a 117-105 home win on Sunday. Victor Wembenyama led the team with 31 points, 12 rebounds, six assists and six blocks, Malaki Branham added 18 points with six assists while Devin Vassell and Keldon Johnson each scored 17 points. As a team, the Spurs shot 54 percent from the field and 10 of 25 from the 3-point line as they played great defense to hold the Pacers to just 16 points in the first quarter, before they caught fire in the second half where they poured in 65 points to pull off the upset win at home.

Houston Rockets

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets have been in a rut as they’ve lost nine of their last 12 games overall, but they will be hoping to get something going after snapping a three-game skid with an impressive 118-109 road win over the Suns on Saturday. Jalen Green led the team with 34 points, nine rebounds and four assists, Fred VanVleet added 24 points with 11 assists while Alperen Sengun chipped in with 21 points, 10 rebounds and two assists. As a team, the Rockets shot 43 percent from the field and 16 of 42 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates with 38 points in the first quarter to take an early 20-point lead which was just enough to hold off the Suns who cut the lead to just four points midway through the fourth quarter.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The Rockets have lost each of their last 13 games on the first leg of a back-to-back after winning as underdogs.
  • The Rockets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last 10 Tuesday games against Western Conference opponents that held a losing record.
  • Seven of the Rockets’ last eight home games against Southwest Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

San Antonio Spurs Team Facts

  • The Spurs have lost each of their last nine games against Southwest Division opponents following a win.
  • The Spurs have failed to cover the spread in each of their last six games against Southwest Division opponents after winning as underdogs.
  • Each of the Spurs’ last six games at Toyota Center following a home win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Spurs vs Raptors Prediction

The Spurs could be missing Wembenyama who is listed as questionable due to left shoulder soreness, while the Rockets are still missing Tari Eason. The Spurs have sprung to life with a couple of impressive upset wins on the trot, but they were absolutely ice-cold before those wins and they could be without their big man, but they could still take down the Rockets who were in a season-worst slump before a surprise win over the Suns on Saturday. It’s hard to back either team with any confidence, but assuming Wembenyama sits out, I will go with the Rockets to take advantage at home.
