The San Antonio Spurs haven’t been home dogs very often under Gregg Popovich, but they are tonight against the 25-15 OKC Thunder.

Can they keep up their hot recent play or will regression hit? Our analysts answer.


Betting Trends to Know

Oklahoma City is a 1.5-point favorite in San Antonio. This is only the 18th time since 2005 that the Spurs have been home underdogs in the regular season.

During this time, Popovich’s team has gone 11-6 against the spread (ATS) when getting points in San Antonio. This is the seventh time during the 2018-19 season that the Spurs have been home dogs; they have gone 5-1 ATS in the previous six games. — John Ewing

The Spurs opened as 1-point underdogs at home on a back-to-back. Since 2005, the Spurs are 26-36 (41.9%) ATS when opening as underdogs on a back-to-back, including just 7-13 (35%) ATS in this spot over the last five seasons.

This will be the first time in those 62 games that San Antonio will be playing at home in this spot, with the previous 62 games all coming on the road. — Evan Abrams
