The San Antonio Spurs (5-2) tip off against the Toronto Raptors (4-3) at 7:00pm CST later today at home. The Spurs have won two in a row and hope to continue their shocking winning ways. The Spurs enter as the 7.5-point underdog and have several players listed as out. The Raptors are also facing the injury bug, as Fred VanVleet remains questionable.

San Antonio Spurs vs Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/under

The Raptors are favored by 7.5 points against San Antonio tonight. On the moneyline, the Spurs are +260 and Toronto is -320, which makes sense given who the Spurs are without. The over/under sits at 224 total points, which is slightly under the two teams' average of 227.7 points, but without Vassell and Johnson, don't expect the Spurs to break any scoring records.

Spurs starting lineup tonight

Jeremy Sochan is back, so expect the Spurs to trot out a starting five of Tre Jones, Josh Richardson, Jeremy Sochan, Keita Bates-Diop, and Jakob Poeltl. Who needs floor spacing?

Spurs injury report

It's a doozy tonight. The Spurs have Keldon Johnson, Devin Vassell, Isaiah Roby, and Blake Wesley all listed as out. This is Vassell's third game in a row he is missing, but aside from Wesley's MCL sprain, I wouldn't be concerned about any of the players' health.

San Antonio Spurs vs Toronto predictions

With such a depleted lineup, I expect the Spurs to lose 120-105, barely covering the over. The Spurs have faced some defensive struggles, and with Richardson in the starting five that shouldn't improve their woes.

What channel are the Spurs on?

The Spurs tip off at 7:00pm CST on Bally Sports and NBA League Pass.

Spurs next game and travel time

The Spurs play next on Friday, also at home, hosting a Kawhi Leonard-less Clippers squad. Expect a big game from Paul George, but if Vassell is back then that should be a must-see matchup.

Air Alamo lock of the night

Due to injuries on the Spurs, finding player props for the Silver and Black is next to impossible, so I'm doing the taboo: recommending that you put money on Pascal Siakam to score more than 24.5 points, at -108. It seems like players always put up big numbers against the Spurs, and with no Johnson and Vassell to guard the wings, I think Siakam could have a huge game. If he doesn't and I lose yet another bet, I'll sleep well tonight knowing that Jeremy Sochan once again proved that he can keep up in this league.
