NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs are just 3-11 against the spread in their last 14 games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games.
The Hawks have covered the spread in five straight against Western Conference opponents and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 against Southwest opponents.
The Spurs are a team that have played down to lesser competition all season. It is why they have struggled at the betting window and what led to their recent losing skid. Atlanta is on a nice roll at the betting window right now despite the recent injuries. The Spurs aren’t a team I can really trust right now, especially on the road. While San Antonio is better on paper, I like the Hawks to cover the spread.
