Spurs' Stingy D Has the UNDER Red-Hot

San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan

The San Antonio Spurs are one of the few NBA teams that are seemingly always in the thick of things at the top of the standings, and the 2015 campaign has been no different. The Spurs, winners of 12 of their previous 14 games, will be looking to keep the good times rolling Thursday evening when they invade the FedExForum to take on the Memphis Grizzlies.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 against the Grizzlies.
  • The OVER is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings between the Spurs and Grizzlies.
  • The Grizzlies are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games.

Memphis has overcome a sluggish start to win eight of their last 10 heading into the matchup. If the Grizz are going to leave the Grindhouse with a win, they’ll have to bring their A game on offense against a stingy Spurs squad that’s shutting opponents down with ease. San Antonio has held opposing teams to 92 points or fewer in seven straight contests.

As a result of that strong defense, UNDER bettors are profiting big time in Spurs games. The UNDER has gone 7-1 in Tim Duncan and company’s previous eight tilts.
