The Spurs are coming off a 108-105 loss in STAPLES Center last night to the Clippers. Despite that, San Antonio has covered the spread in four straight games. San Antonio is 22-27 on the season, 8-15 on the road, 22-26-1 against the spread and 29-20 with the over.

Offensively, the Spurs are putting up 113.9 points per game while shooting 47.1 percent from the floor. San Antonio is being led by DeMar DeRozan, who is averaging 23.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 19.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest.

Los Angeles is coming off a 129-113 win at Sacramento on Saturday night to snap a brief 2-game skid. The Lakers are 37-11 on the season, 16-6 at home, 25-22-1 against the spread and 24-24 with the over/under total.

NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs have covered the spread in four straight road games and in six of their last seven games as an underdog.
The Lakers are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last five games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
The Lakers have won and covered the spread in both meetings with the Spurs this season, both of which came in San Antonio. With Los Angeles at full strength, I expect them to be able to handle their business at home. They had an emotional loss to the Blazers in their last home game against the Blazers. I think they will bounce back as they turn their focus onto winning an NBA title for the city. San Antonio is streaky, but I don’t think the Spurs will be able to hang with a motivated Los Angeles team tonight.
