The Spurs are 15-4 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Brooklyn and 26-9-1 ATS in the last 36 meetings. The under is 16-5 in the last 21 meetings in Brooklyn and 19-7-1 in the last 27 meetings.
The San Antonio Spurs are losing their last five games by an average of 7.4 points while allowing 49 percent shooting from the field and 42.1 percent shooting from deep. LaMarcus Aldridge has also been ruled out for this game with a shoulder injury. The Brooklyn Nets aren't the most consistent team in the world either, but they have had great recent success at home where they're still a profitable 16-14 against the spread. I want nothing to do with the Spurs. It's the Nets or pass.
