Spurs Have Gone Cold Against the Spread

Kawhi Leonard San Antonio Spurs Kevin Durant Oklahoma City Thunders NBA

San Antonio is always a tough destination for travelers and the high-octane offense of the Oklahoma City Thunder has not been exempt from struggles. The Thunder will look to put a notch in the win column - and get revenge on a humiliating loss their last time there - when they visit the Spurs Saturday night.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 16-6-1 ATS in the last 23 meetings between the two teams.
  • OVER is 5-2 in the previous seven meetings between the two teams.
  • Spurs are 13-3 ATS in the last 16 games versus the Northwest Division.

The Spurs bring a 31-0 home record into Saturday’s date with the Thunder and have gone 20-11 against the spread on their home floor in the process. They are coming off a 109-101 victory over the Chicago Bulls at the AT&T Center, but failed to cover the number as lofty 14.5-point faves. In fact, the Spurs have failed to cover the spread for their backers in back-to-back home games and are just 1-4 ATS in their last five overall entering Saturday’s contest.

The Thunder have struggled mightily of late, putting up a 4-7 SU record (3-6-2 ATS) in their last 11 games. The most recent defeat, an embarrassing one at that one, came last night to the Minnesota Timberwolves. OKC lost 99-96 as a 12-point home favorite and now visit the team with the NBA’s best home record.

The last time the Thunder visited San Antonio, they were thumped 130-91. This will be their first visit this season but do have a 112-106 win on their home floor in the only other meeting between the two clubs back on October 28. In their last five trips to San Antonio, the Thunder have gone just 1-4 SU and ATS.
