San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
LaMarcus Aldridge will be rested for the Spurs on Wednesday when they take on the Warriors, along with DeMar DeRozan, while Derrick White will miss the game due to his ankle injury. Gregg Popovich is up to his old tricks again and will not give the Warriors a look at his true team, although the Warriors probably don't care. Just be sure to avoid White, DeRozan and Aldridge tomorrow, while guys like Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Rudy Gay, Davis Bertans, Marco Belinelli and Jakob Poeltl should all see some extra touches on Wednesday.
Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin
Kevin Durant double-doubled with 21 points (8-of-13 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, 11 assists and two turnovers in 35 minutes against the Lakers on Saturday. KD now has four point-assist double-doubles on the season, which is one more than he had all of last year. His numbers have fallen a bit of late, possibly related to DeMarcus Cousins' presence in the lineup, but he's still a top-tier player in fantasy basketball.
NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs have covered the spread in four of their last five road games and in nine of their last 10 games versus an opponent with a win percentage above .600.
The Warriors are just 3-11-1 against the spread in their last 15 home games.
Given how much the Warriors have struggled to cover the spread at home of late, it’s tempting to take the points with a good team in San Antonio. That said, there’s a reason why the Warriors are laying double-digits in what is a decent matchup on paper. The Spurs have won seven out of 10 but they failed to cover the spread by 17, 5.5 and 5 points over their last three games, including in their blowout loss to the Kings in Sacramento a few nights ago. The favorite is 10-3 at the betting window in the last 13 meetings between these two teams while the home side has covered in five of the past seven meetings. The Warriors know when to turn it on and I expect them to do exactly that tonight.
