The Hornets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Spurs are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 home games and 19-9 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Hornets are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in San Antonio and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Hornets have earned some respect as of late after hanging with the Hawks twice and just beating the Mavs on the road. The Spurs should win this game, but this is simply too many points to lay with a solid defensive team with an offense that's put up points recently. Give me the road team.
