San Antonio Spurs Form

Following their 114-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday, the San Antonio Spurs get a bounce back opportunity against their cross-town rivals the Clippers tonight. That was San Antonio’s 2nd loss in a row and their 3rd in the last 4 games. The defense has struggled in their last 3 games giving up 114 points to the Lakers, 123 to the Mavericks and 117 to the Kings at home. Opponents are shooting 46.5% against them and the Spurs defense currently ranks 27th in the NBA, something we’re not accustomed to seeing from a Gregg Popovich led team. The Spurs have only 4 wins in their last 18 games and on the road they’ve won just twice in their last 11 games.

LA Clippers Form

The Clippers had their 7-game win streak snapped by the Chicago Bulls at home on Sunday. The defense was working, however they just couldn’t get it going on the offensive end and finished the game with just 90 points scored. Paul George and Eric Bledsoe did their part with 27 and 21 points scored, however players like Reggie Jackson let them down as he finished with just 13 points on 4-for-17 shooting. Games like that really show just how much they are missing Kawhi Leonard, you can maybe get away with stuff against Minnesota or Portland, but against an elite team you are in trouble without your best player. Overall, the Clippers still look good though, they’ve covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games vs teams from the Western Conference. However, at home against the Spurs they are just 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

San Antonio Spurs vs LA Clippers Head-to-Head and Prediction

If the Spurs defense was just slightly better I’d consider backing them here, but they’ve given up 234 points to their last two opponents, that’s just not going to cut against an elite team like the Clippers. This is LA’s final game of a 6-game homestand and I can see them giving their best to finish it off on a high note. Let’s back the Clippers to cover here.

Betting Tip: San Antonio Spurs vs LA Clippers

LA Clippers -6.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds on bet365

Anything but a high scoring game would be a surprise here for me. These two teams both rank in the upper echelon when it comes to scoring the ball. Spurs have been very efficient in their last 3 games. From the field they are scoring on 48.9% of shots and from three-point land they are draining 48% of their shots. Before their loss to Chicago, if felt like the Clippers were scoring 120 points on a regular basis. The over had landed 4 times in their last 5 games and at home this season they are 5-4 in favor of the Over in 9 games played. San Antonio’s last 5 games against Pacific Division teams have all gone over the total. I think we’re in for a high paced game here with both teams scoring a ton of points. Go with the over.
