Spurs struggling

San Antonio is coming off a 120-117 loss at Toronto on Friday. The Spurs have lost five of their last six games and are just 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games. The Spurs are 33-27 overall, 11-20 on the road, 32-27-1 against the spread and 37-22-1 with the over.

The Spurs are a good shooting team. They average 112.4 points per game while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from the arc. Defensively, San Antonio is giving up 111.5 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 47 percent. DeMar DeRozan is leading the team with 21.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.2 assists per contest while LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 20.7 points and 9.0 rebounds per game.

Knicks back to losing

New York ended its long 18-game win streak before the break, but went back to losing on Friday when it fell to Minnesota 115-104. The Knicks have failed to cover in three of their last four games as well. New York is 11-48 on the season, 4-24 at home, 24-34-1 against the spread and 31-28 with the under.

The Knicks are not too impressive on either side of the ball, as the offensive scores just 105.3 points per game while shooting a league-worst 43 percent. Defensively, the Knicks are giving up 114 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 47 percent from the field. DeAndre Jordan is doubtful to play tonight due to an ankle injury. Dennis Smith Jr. is leading the team right now with 15.8 points and 6.1 assists per game while Kevin Knox is adding 12.6 points per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

San Antonio

The Spurs are 1-5 against the spread in their last six road games, but 8-2 ATS in their last 10 against Eastern Conference opponents.

New York

The Knicks are 7-19 against the spread in their last 26 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six against the West.

Prediction:

The Spurs haven’t been great at covering much lately, but they did go and cover at Toronto on Friday. The Knicks are also not good at covering and they are without their inside presence in Jordan. With him likely out, the Spurs should really be able to dominate the paint and take full advantage of a poor New York defense. I think San Antonio can run past this team, and if they can’t, then they are really in trouble.

NBA Prediction: San Antonio Spurs -8.5
