The 27-21 San Antonio Spurs will visit the 31-17 Philadelphia 76ers, who have some key injuries hanging in the air.

What are those guys worth to the spread? Will the Spurs continue their ATS dominance over East teams? We break it all down.


Betting Trends to Know

The Spurs play their sixth game this season against an Eastern Conference team that is over .500 straight-up.

Entering this game against the Sixers, San Antonio is 4-1 SU and 5-0 against-the-spread facing an above .500 East team, covering the spread by 13.4 points per game this season. The Spurs are the only undefeated team ATS vs. above .500 non-conference opponents in 2018-19.

Over the last three seasons, the Spurs have dominated really good teams from the Eastern Conference. The Spurs are 17-4 straight up and ATS when facing an Eastern Conference team with a win rate of 60% or higher since the beginning of 2016, covering the spread by 6.6 points per game. — Evan Abrams

The Spurs opened as two-point underdogs in Philadelphia, and the line has shifted to 76ers -4. Since 2005, when the line gets bigger for San Antonio as an underdog in the regular season, the team is 68-50 (58%) ATS. In the past two seasons (during which Kawhi Leonard played just nine games), the Spurs are 16-8 ATS in this situation. — John Ewing
