Trends Pointing to Spurs Covering vs the Suns

A battle of two teams heading in opposite directions takes place on Wednesday as the high-flying San Antonio Spurs play host to the lowly Phoenix Suns. Oddsmakers initially set the Suns as 13.5-point underdogs with a total of 214.

Shark Bites
  • The Suns are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
  • The UNDER is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in San Antonio.
  • The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Phoenix fell 131-115 to the Houston Rockets on Monday for its fifth loss in the last six games. The Suns have allowed an average of 118 points during the six-game stretch and gave up more than 100 points in 14 consecutive contests. A bet on the Spurs’ OVER team total looks like a solid play here.

Kawhi Leonard filling the stat sheet is nothing new for the Spurs, but when LaMarcus Aldridge steps up, the offense takes a totally different look. Aldridge dropped a season-best 33-point effort against Chicago on Christmas Day, going 15-for-20 from the field while collecting nine rebounds.

To say this series has been one-sided in recent years would be a massive understatement. The Spurs are 8-0 SU in their last eight games vs the Suns, going 5-2-1 ATS in that span.
