San Antonio is 4-0-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 1-4 against the spread against the Eastern Conference, and 2-0-2 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Charlotte is 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games, 10-4 against the spread following a win, and 2-8 against the spread against the NBA Southwest.
I see San Antonio winning here but Charlotte is playing well and this game is closer than the spread.
