San Antonio has won 12 games in a row, including a 99-79 victory over the Sacramento Kings as eight-point road favorites Friday, while going UNDER the betting total of 207.5. The Spurs have three of five probable starters averaging double figures, with point guard Tony Parker leading the way at 17.6 points a contest, but scored just 14 points in 28 minutes of action last time out. The franchise is 26-8 SU on the road this season, including a 15-5 mark versus Western Conference rivals, which can’t be ignored when making your NBA predictions. San Antonio is 8-4 SUATS as road underdogs of three or fewer points the last two-plus seasons.
The Spurs rank sixth in in the league in scoring 104.0 points per game on the road—outshooting 24 of 34 opponents when playing away from the AT&T Center. San Antonio is also the only team in the league to be 10-or-more games above .500 in both home and road games. It’s also important to handicap the fact that the squad has compiled a 44-9 SU record when scoring 100-or-more points.
Golden State has put together a three-game win streak, as it looks to build off a 115-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks as 12.5-point home favorites Thursday, while going OVER the betting total of 206. The Warriors have one of the best back courts in the game, with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combining to average 41.6 points per game, which is important to consider when looking over the NBA betting lines. Curry leads the league in three-pointers made, with Thompson sitting directly behind him in that statistical category. Golden State is 0-2 SUATS as home favorites of three or fewer points.
The Warriors are 23-11 SU at Oracle Arena during the 2013-14 campaign, including a 14-6 mark versus conference foes. Golden State has dropped 50 of its last 58 games versus San Antonio, including a 4-2 deficit in last year’s conference finals matchup. The team has put together a 13-4 record since the All-Star break—trailing only tonight’s opponent in terms of the best record in the league over that span.
Sports bettors will likely back the Spurs due their 6-0 ATS mark in their last six games.
