San Antonio Spurs

By the Numbers is a daily column that provides pertinent trends in three featured NBA games, in order to give our readers insight into cashing their NBA picks.

Raptors vs. Nets

  • Toronto is 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite.
  • Toronto is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.
  • Toronto is 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite of 11 or greater.
  • Toronto is 4-1 ATS in their last five when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • Brooklyn is 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a straight up loss.
  • Brooklyn is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog of 11.0 or greater.
  • Brooklyn is 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a double-digit loss at home.

The Raptors are coming off a 116-101 thrashing of the Knicks on Sunday while the Nets are still licking their wounds after their 137-112 loss to Houston. Toronto is 6-0 straight up and 4-2 ATS in their last six meetings against the Nets and should add to that undefeated streak while covering the NBA odds.

Mavericks vs. Bulls

  • Dallas is 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games as a road underdog of 5.0-10.5 points.
  • Dallas is 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games.
  • Dallas is 5-1 ATS in their last six when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their         previous game.
  • Chicago is 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. a team with a winning percentage below .400.
  • Chicago is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games as a favorite.
  • Chicago is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up win.
  • Chicago is 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games playing on one days rest.

The Mavericks have won and covered their last three meetings with the Bulls and those who have backed them recently in their NBA picks saw Dallas win straight up and cover the number against both Phoenix and Minnesota. We will grab the points with a team that has matched up well against the Bulls and crushed Chicago 107-82 back in December.

Free NBA Pick: Mavericks +5 ½

Spurs vs. Timberwolves

  • San Antonio is 4-0 ATS in their last four games following a straight up loss.
  • San Antonio is 4-0 ATS in their last four after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
  • San Antonio is 5-0 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss.
  • San Antonio is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 home games.
  • San Antonio is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record.
  • San Antonio is 8-0 straight up and 7-1 against the spread versus Minnesota over the last three seasons 
  • Minnesota is 1-4 ATS in their last five Tuesday games.
  • Minnesota is 1-4 ATS in their last five road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
  • Minnesota is 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.

The Spurs have owned the Timberwolves in recent memory and tonight should be no exception. San Antonio suffered an uncharacteristic straight up loss as 12 ½ point favorites to the Suns in their last outing and should be aching to atone for that humiliating defeat.

Free NBA Pick: Spurs -11 ½
