The Spurs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss. The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 6-1-1 in Spurs last 8 road games. The over is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall. The Spurs are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
The San Antonio Spurs just can't get out of their own way with a subpar defensive effort, and they're losing by an average of six points in the underdog role. The Los Angeles Clippers have been one of the hotter teams in the league the last week and a half, and they're winning their lat five games by an average of 8.4 points. This feels like two teams heading in different directions early in the season. I'll lay the chalk with the Clippers.
