Spurs a Poor Bet vs Pacific Division

Two NBA heavyweights will square off tonight in Oakland with the Spurs trying to derail the Warriors’ hopes of a 73-win season. San Antonio has been a team to fade when facing teams from the Pacific division, as they’ve gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in that spot. The Warriors, on the other hand, have been a profitable wager against Southwest division squads, going 11-4 ATS in their last 15 matchups.

shark Bites
  • San Antonio is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Warriors' last 10 games as a favorite of 7.0 or less.
  • The visiting team is 0-4 SU and ATS in its last four games in this matchup.

This matchup has been extremely one-sided in recent years with the Spurs winning nine of 11 SU vs the powerhouse Warriors (also, 6-2 ATS in their last eight meetings). They’re met twice so far this season with each team earning a win and a cover on their home court. When they played in Oakland on January 25, the Warriors dominated, winning 120-90, easily covering a 4.5-point spread. Steph Curry went off for 37 points, but in their most recent meeting on March 19, he scored just 14 points in an 87-79 loss, which was a season-low scoring output for Golden State.

The Spurs have been an underdog of 7-points or more in Golden State three times in the past three seasons and have won outright in two of those situations.

Tonight’s game opened with a total of 209.5. The teams have gone UNDER in four straight against each other, and have combined to go UNDER in seven of their last 10 games. Going UNDER on the road is the norm for the Spurs, who’ve gone 14-23-1 O/U when travelling this season.

As always with the Spurs, there’s a risk they could rest some starters, so be sure to monitor lineup activity as the game approaches.
