NBA Betting Trends
The Spurs are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall. San Antonio is 1-5 ATS in its last six games versus the Pacific Division.
The Clippers are 2-6 ATS in their last eight home games. Los Angeles is 1-4-1 ATS in its last six Thursday games.
The Clippers struggled last night and are on a back-to-back, but this spread still seems a little on the low side. San Antonio has benefited from three home games and has typically been not nearly as good away from home although still obviously a competitive franchise through the years. Leonard will be highly motivated for this one and fresh after not playing last night. Going with LA at home here.
