Spurs on a long road trip
San Antonio is on a big road trip right now, losing all five games thus far. That includes a 127-120 loss at Denver last night. The Spurs are 22-31 on the season, 8-19 on the road, 22-30-1 against the spread and 33-20 with the over.
The Spurs are putting up 113.2 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.1 percent from the field. Defensively, San Antonio is giving up 114.7 points per game while opponents shoot 46.8 percent from the field. DeMar DeRozan is listed as questionable to play tonight due to a back injury. He leads the team with 23 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 19.0 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.
Thunder end win streak
Oklahoma City had a four-game win streak come to an end on Sunday in a 112-111 loss at home to Boston. The Thunder are now 32-21 on the season, 17-11 at home, 35-18 against the spread and 28-25 with the under.
The Thunder are putting up 110.5 points per game this season while shooting 47.1 percent from the field. Defensively, Oklahoma City is allowing 107.7 points per game while opponents shoot 45.5 percent from the field. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is leading the team with 19.6 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Dennis Schroder and Danilo Gallinari are each adding 19.2 points per game.
NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games as a road underdog and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games as an underdog.
The Thunder are 19-7 against the spread in their last 26 games overall and 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games on 1 day of rest.
These two have split two games at San Antonio this season. I like the Thunder to grab the rubber match and cover tonight. The Spurs are on their third game in four nights, all on the road in different areas of the country. They have to be fatigued and could possibly be without their scoring leader as well. The spread is big for OKC, which isn’t a team that blows out a lot of people, but I think their defense will really keep the Spurs in check and allow them to cover with some ease.
