San Antonio Spurs Betting Preview
The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 81.3 points on 38.4 percent shooting and allowing 76.5 points on 35.2 percent shooting. Victor Wembanyama is averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Malaki Branham is averaging 17.3 points and 2.7 assists.

As Ive said before, the San Antonio Spurs just aren't as attractive without Victor Wembanyama, and their performance against the Pistons wasn't encouraging. The Oklahoma City Thunder are one of the more talented teams in the summer league, and they've bounced back nicely from losses so far. I just like OKC's roster far more, especially with the Spurs shutting down their star. I'll lay the bucket.
