The San Antonio Spurs and the Charlotte Hornets duke it out at the Spectrum Center on Saturday night.

The San Antonio Spurs have been in a bit of a rut as they’ve lost four of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to put an end to a three-game skid after coming up short to the Kings in a 115-112 loss on Thursday. Lonnie Walker led the team in scoring with 30 points on 12 of 20 shooting off the bench, Dejounte Murray added 29 points with 12 rebounds and seven assists while Jakob Poeltl chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Spurs shot 49 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sluggish start and had to rally all the way back from a 19-point deficit, only to allow the Kings to slip away late in the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a major slump as they’ve lost 11 of their last 14 games overall and they will be eager to stay hot after routing the Cavaliers in a 119-98 road win on Wednesday. Terry Rozier led the team with 27 points and seven assists, Kelly Oubre Jr added 19 points and five assists off the bench while Miles Bridges chipped in with 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Hornets shot 50 percent from the field and 17 of 38 from the 3-point line as they dominated right from the start, exploding for 38 points in the first quarter to take a 15-point lead into halftime and they never took their foot off the gas. LaMelo Ball had a night to forget as he finished with just two points in eight minutes of action as he was plagued with foul trouble early.

Looking at the betting trends, the Spurs are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog and 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games against a team with a losing record. The Hornets are 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 home games, 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a win of more than 10 points and 3-7-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall.

Head to head, the Spurs are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Spurs could be without Devin Vassell and Lonnie Walker who are both questionable for this one, while the Hornets will again be missing James Bouknight and Jalen McDaniels. It’s hard to back either team with much confidence these days, but the Hornets looked great in their win over the Cavaliers and they should be well-rested as they haven’t seen the court since Wednesday. I’m reluctantly going with the Hornets to get the win and cover in a close one.
