Betting Trends to Know

The Spurs are playing the second game of a back-to-back. From 2010 to 2016, San Antonio was one of the most profitable teams in the league playing on a back-to-back, going 73-50 against the spread. But over the past two seasons, the Spurs are only 7-11 ATS in this spot. John Ewing

Since 2005, the Spurs have struggled ATS on back-to-backs when facing a familiar opponent on extended rest — which the Lakers have heading into this matchup — going 16-27 (37.2%) ATS and failing to cover by an average of 2.7 points.Evan Abrams

The Spurs opened as 7.5-point underdogs and currently sit at +9. This is just the 30th time since 2005 that San Antonio has been an underdog of seven or more points in the regular season. The Spurs have won only four of those 29 previous games, going 12-17 ATS as well.Ewing
