The Spurs are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Monday games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog and 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 road games. The Clippers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Monday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 6-2 in Spurs last 8 road games. The over is 7-2-1 in Clippers last 10 home games. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in L.A.
The San Antonio Spurs are one of the more underachieving teams in the league this season and you're never sure which side is going to show up, but they are winning their last five games by an average of 4.4 points and are 4-0 ATS this season when an underdog of at least 7.5 points. The Los Angeles Clippers are winning at home by an average of nine points, are 15-10 ATS at home and 7-5 ATS as a double-digit favorite. There's a lot that leans toward the Clippers in a comfortable win, but I'm still leaning toward the Spurs and the points. This line is a bit too steep for me.
