Spurs Have a Penchant for Going OVER in Canada

The San Antonio Spurs were dealt some brutal news on Wednesday when the team learned star small forward Kawhi Leonard would once again be out indefinitely with a quad injury, but the team isn’t letting that slow them down thanks to back-to-back victories heading into Friday’s road tilt with the Toronto Raptors.

Xbet opened the Raptors as 5.5-point home favorites with a total of 206.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 0-6 SU in their last six games on the road after winning their most recent road game.
  • The Spurs are 10-2-2 ATS in their last 14 games with one day off between games.
  • The Raptors are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games with one day off between games.

The Spurs improved to 25-12 SU without Leonard on the floor in Wednesday’s 100-95 triumph over the Brooklyn Nets. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich announced Leonard didn’t re-injure himself, but nagging soreness made it uncomfortable for him to perform at the high level we’re used to seeing from the 26-year-old. Kyle Anderson is starting in place of Leonard and has averaged only 8.6 points and 5.9 rebounds in 32 starts this season.

Toronto avoided its first three-game losing streak of the campaign by topping the Detroit Pistons 96-91 on Wednesday, but the Raptors have had their hands full with the Spurs in recent years. The Raptors have dropped four straight to the Spurs, including a 101-97 loss in San Antonio on October 23.

While the Spurs’ dominance in this series is well known, the OVER is also a great bet when the teams meet in Canada. In the last seven matchups between the Spurs and Raptors at the Air Canada Centre, the OVER is 6-1.
