Warriors are a Poor Bet as Home Faves

Tony Parker Klay Thompson

NBA fans and bettors alike won’t be suffering from a case of the Mondays thanks to tonight’s San Antonio Spurs-Golden State Warriors clash in California. Steve Kerr’s squad simply aren’t getting the job done when it comes to covering the spread as home chalk. The Warriors are 0-5 ATS in their last five when tabbed as home favorites, while the matchup is the first time since Christmas that the Warriors aren't double-digit favorites at Oracle Arena. Sportsbooks opened Stephen Curry and company as favorites in the 3-point ballpark for the affair, but that number rose to -5 at the time of writing. That would make the Warriors the smallest home favorites they've been all season.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Warriors' last six games with two days off between games.
  • The Warriors are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games.
  • The Spurs are 9-0 SU and ATS in their last nine games after an ATS loss.

Historically speaking, the Spurs have dominated this series. San Antonio is 8-1 SU in its last nine against the Dubs, and 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between the clubs. It’s a huge sample size, but this trend speaks volumes about just how one sided this matchup has been: San Antonio is 55-9 against Golden State since Tim Duncan came into the league in 1997.

Tim Duncan will miss the contest with right knee soreness, but the absence of The Big Fundamental hasn’t hurt San Antonio this year. The Spurs are 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS in games when Duncan has been sidelined.

San Antonio ranks as the top bet in the Association at 30-14 ATS. Looking for an in-depth feature of just how good the Spurs have been this year? Check out our San Antonio Spurs team focus piece.
