Spurs Dominating Opponents in January

While the Golden State Warriors have garnered all the plaudits from NBA fans and media alike, it has been the San Antonio Spurs who have been the team to talk about at the betting window. The owners of the second-best straight up record in the league at 33-6, the Spurs boast a league-best 27-12 record against the spread. The Detroit Pistons have the enviable task of ending the Spurs’ eight-game SU winning streak at The Palace of Auburn Hills Tuesday evening.
