Spurs vs. Hornets Prediction
The Spurs have won six straight games and are coming off a tremendous win versus the Warriors but they'll get another challenge tonight when they visit Marvin Williams and the Hornets at 7:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, San Antonio is a 6-point road favorite at Charlotte for tonight's game while the over/under has been bet up to 199.5 after the number opened at 198.5.
The Spurs have won nine of their last 10 games and six in a row but are just 4-6 at the betting window during that span. The Hornets have also been impressive, winning eight of 10 and also going 6-4 against the spread during that stretch. San Antonio is 24-10 on the road this season and 19-15 against the spread, while Charlotte is 26-11 at home and 19-17 ATS inside Time Warner Cable Arena.
San Antonio hasn't lost to Charlotte since January 15 of 2010 but perhaps the Spurs are due. Charlotte is part of a four-team battle to finish third in the Eastern Conference and will surely give the Spurs all they can handle after suffering a loss to the lowly Nuggets.
The Hornets have covered in eight of their last 11 games versus winning teams and are also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games following an ATS loss. Despite their issues with the Spurs, the home team is also 10-4-1 against the number in the last 15 meetings between these two teams while San Antonio has dropped six of eight against the spread coming off a win.
Take the points with the home dog.
