Lakers at Spurs | OddsShark Matchup Report
Last Friday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks lived up to the hype. Luka Doncic was sensational with a 31-point, 13-rebound and 15-assist triple-double for the Mavericks. But LeBron James was even better, recording a triple-double of his own with 39 points, 16 assists, and 12 rebounds.
Anthony Davis also chipped in 31 points as the Lakers picked up an impressive 119-110 win in overtime for their fourth straight win and cover.
Now the Lakers will try to solve the Spurs in San Antonio, where they are 4-11 SU and 6-8-1 ATS in their last 15 road contests against Gregg Popovich’s group.
With a 127-110 win over the Golden State Warriors as seven-point favorites, San Antonio finally picked up its first ATS win of the season after starting off 0-4 in such results. But despite their lack of success against the spread, the Spurs are off to a 4-1 SU start to the season; like the Lakers, their only loss in 2019-20 has come against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Spurs are 7-1 SU in their last eight games at home including a 3-0 SU record at home so far this season.
Sunday night’s total is set at 219.5 points at online betting sites. The OVER is 5-1 in the last six games played between San Antonio and Los Angeles.
The Lakers haven’t had a winning record on the road since the 2010-11 season when Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, and Lamar Odom were leading the way. As Los Angeles looks to build a championship culture around LeBron James and Anthony Davis this season, winning in tough buildings like the AT&T Center in San Antonio would go a long way.
