San Antonio at Los Angeles

Sunday 11/20 09:40 PM Eastern

1 unit on San Antonio +7 (-109) (risk 1 to return 1.92)  RESULT: LOSS

Young San Antonio comes off of a blowout loss last night at the Clippers. Gregg Popovich got to empty the bench with no starter topping 28 minutes. That's key as the San Antonio starters have actually played well, outscoring the opponents' starting five by 1.7 points this season, which is a Top 10 differential among starting fives. The Spurs are on a 9-7 spread run, as well as 29-13 ATS after two straight double-digit losses. Los Angeles has won two straight, but let's not jump on any bandwagon. The Lakers are 25th in points allowed and have been money-burners on a 3-10-1 ATS run, plus 12-26 ATS after two or more straight victories. Los Angeles is also on a 35-53 ATS run at home while Popovich is 32-17 ATS after four or more straight losses. Play San Antonio.
