San Antonio comes off a 116-107 win at Dallas on Thursday night. San Antonio has actually been better on the road this season than at home. They’ve gone 10-4 at home and 13-3 on the road thus far.

Sacramento hasn’t been very kind to their backers this season covering just 10 of their first 28-games. When you consider the fact that they’ve been an underdog in 20 of 28-games this season, their ATS numbers are atrocious. They do come off a thrilling home overtime 108-103 win versus the Miami Heat on Friday night. However, that was just their 5th win in the last 17-games.</p> <p style="text-align:center" dir="ltr"><em><a target="_blank" title="Sunday NBA Picks of the Day" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/nba-picks-rockets-vs-thunder-a-36145/">Sunday NBA Picks of the Day</a></em></p> <span></span> <p dir="ltr"><strong>NBA Betting System</strong></p> <span></span> <p dir="ltr">Any road underdog of 10.0 or more that’s scored 100-points or more in their last 4-games, versus an opponent that averages 103-points or more per game on the season, has gone 24-5 ATS (82.8%)  since the beginning of the 1996-1997 year.
