The Pacers are 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 Saturday games and 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Spurs are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 14-6 in Pacers last 20 overall. The over is 14-5 in Spurs last 19 Saturday games. The Pacers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in San Antonio and 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
I'm not running to the window to lay chalk with the San Antonio Spurs, but the Pacers are on the end of a back to back and continue to fail to cover numbers. In fact, the Pacers lost last night against a Hornets club that didn't have LaMelo Ball or Gordon Hayward for most of the game. I'm done making a case for the Pacers, a team that's 18-28 against the spread on the season. It's Spurs and the chalk or pass for me.
