Spurs Continue Torrid Pace ATS

Tim Duncan Kobe Bryant

In the wake of Thursday’s 117-89 thumping of the Phoenix Suns in the desert, the San Antonio Spurs continued their trek as the best bet in the NBA. The Spurs, who entered the game as 15.5-point chalk, have now covered the spread in 15 of the 20 times they’ve been tabbed as double-digit favorites this season.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games on the road against the Lakers.
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Lakers' last 11 games at home.
  • The Spurs are 7-0 SU and ATS in their last seven games with no days off between games.

Next up on the schedule for Tim Duncan and company is another road matchup against the lowly Los Angeles Lakers. Most shops have opened the Spurs as 14.5-point faves for the affair.

San Antonio has rattled off 13 straight victories to improve to 30-13 ATS—the best mark in the Association. They’ve dropped only one game since December 11, collecting 19 wins in that span.

The Lakers (9-35 SU), meanwhile, have been anything but a reliable play for sports bettors. L.A. is 18-26 ATS—the fourth-worst record in the league, and are 7-21 ATS versus Western Conference foes and just 7-9 ATS as home underdogs.

Lakers’ head coach Byron Scott has insisted he’s going to keep letting soon-to-be retired legend Kobe Bryant shoot at will, which is clearly hurting the team this year. Bryant is shooting a career worst 35 percent from the field.
