BROOKLYN, NY (The Spread) – The Spurs are tired, banged up and will be without two more starters tonight when they visit the Nets at 8:00PM ET.

The Spurs are coming off a 125-118 victory in double overtime against the Wizards last night but Tony Parker left the game with back tightness and has been ruled out for tonight’s game versus the Nets. Making matters bleaker for San Antonio, Tim Duncan will miss also miss tonight’s game after playing a season-high 40 minutes against Washington and also appearing in 23 straight games. Boris Diaw is also questionable after suffering food poisoning.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Spurs are 6-point road underdogs versus the Nets, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 196 points. San Antonio enters play with a 36-13 record and is 18-5 on the road, so one would think that Brooklyn is a great play tonight for bettors.

That said, the Spurs are 12-1 against the spread in their last 13 road games versus the Nets and 20-6-1 against the number in their last 27 games overall versus Brooklyn. While the favorite is 4-0 against the number in the last four meetings between these two teams, the road squad is 11-4-1 against the number in the last 16 meetings.

My advice would be to lay off. The Nets have won six of their last 10 games and are coming off a victory versus the 76ers but their point differential is still a negative 2.7 and they’re just 7-9 straight up versus the Western Conference this year. There just isn’t a ton of value on Brooklyn at a 6-point price and with the Spurs banged up, there’s similarly no value in them either.
