Warriors and Spurs Do Battle In Watered Down Affair

The Golden State Warriors have been on top of the Western Conference all season, but the San Antonio Spurs are within striking distance in the stretch run due to the Warriors being forced to play without injured superstar Kevin Durant. The heavyweights are set to collide in a huge contest on Saturday, and sports bettors can find no shortage of interesting angles.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 8-22 SU in their last 30 games against the Spurs.
  • The Spurs are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games after a loss.
  • The Warriors are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against the Western Southwest division.

First, this matchup may be important to bettors and fans alike but the two franchises don’t seem to be putting much stock into the game. The Warriors have decided to rest Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala. On the flip side, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge will not be on the floor for the Spurs due to injuries.

San Antonio is normally a safe bet at home, but they’ve hit a wall when it comes to covering the spread in Texas lately. The Spurs are 0-6 against the spread in their last six at AT&T Center and 0-5 ATS in their past five overall. This is only the second meeting between the clubs on the year, as the Spurs hammered the Dubs 129-100 at the start of the season while covering by a ridiculous 37 and a half points. A win in this one will give San Antonio the all-important
tiebreaker before they face Golden State for a third and final time on March 29th.

San Antonio will be looking to rebound from a poor effort against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday, as they saw a nine-game losing streak come to an end in the 102-92 setback.

The UNDER has been cashing when the Warriors and Spurs get together, as five of the last seven contests between the clubs have gone below the closing total. The UNDER is also 6-1 in the Warriors’ last seven overall.
