Betting Trends to Know

The Spurs cover when it matters. Since 2005, the Spurs are 72-71-1 against the spread in Games 1-4 of playoff series, but have gone 29-18-3 ATS in Games 5-7. John Ewing

The Spurs led the Nuggets 34-22 at the end of the first quarter of Game 4. By halftime, it was already tied. The Nuggets ended up finishing off the Spurs by 14 points to cover the spread. Since 2016, the Spurs have struggled mightily the game after losing by double-digits in the playoffs, going 2-8 against the spread — a stark difference to the Spurs’ playoff successes of seasons past.

From 2005 to 2015, the Spurs went 17-9-2 ATS in this spot, covering by more than two points per game. Evan Abrams

The Spurs are 4-1-1 ATS in road games immediately after losing at home in regular-season and postseason games over the past two seasons, covering the spread by 8.6 points per game, including winning by an average of eight points per game. — Abrams
