Spurs are a Consistent Source of UNDERs

Tim Duncan Kemba Walker

If there’s one team in the NBA you never have to worry about getting too high on themselves, it’s the San Antonio Spurs. The perennial contenders are fresh off a 87-79 home victory over the mighty Golden State Warriors – their biggest win of the season – but will have their hands full once again Monday versus the streaking Charlotte Hornets. Backing the Hornets as home underdogs has been extremely profitable as of late, as Kemba Walker and company are 3-0 ATS in their past three as home dogs. Books opened Charlotte as 6-point underdogs for the tilt.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 5-0 SU in their last five games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Hornets' last three games with a closing total of 199.5 or less.
  • The Hornets are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as an underdog of 6.0 or less.

The Spurs possess the best defense in the NBA, so it’s no surprise they’ve become a boon for UNDER bettors. Ten of San Antonio’s previous 13 matchups have gone below the closing total. Oddsmakers opened the total for tonight’s contest at 198.5. Gregg Popovich’s crew lead the Association with 92.3 points allowed per game.

Charlotte is no slouch, however. The Hornets are one of the hottest teams in the league, whose 17-5 SU record since January 31 is the NBA’s third best behind San Antonio (20-2) and Golden State (19-3).

One player to keep an eye on in the tilt is Kemba Walker. The Hornets’ point guard has totalled 56 points in the last two meetings between the squads.
