The Line: San Antonio Spurs -8.5 -- Over/Under: 197.5 See the Latest Odds
The San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns collide at the AT&T Center tonight.
The Suns have won four of their last six games but will be looking to bounce back after falling to the shorthanded Pelicans by 122-116 last night. Eric Bledsoe continued his great season with a team-high 29 points with a full line, Brandon Knight added 19 points while Markieff Morris had 17 points, but the Suns just didn't have an answer for Anthony Davis who scorched them for 32 points, including a clutch 3-pointer late in the game to send the Suns to 7-6 on the season and 2-3 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Spurs had their six-game win streak snapped in a 104-90 loss at New Orleans on Friday, but responded well with a 92-82 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday. Kawhi Leonard led the scoring with 19 points, Tony Parker looked spry and added 18 points while Manu Ginobili returned from a two-game absence and added 15 points off the bench as the Spurs took down the Grizzlies who were riding a four-game win streak. The Spurs are still a long way from playing their best basketball, but with their loaded roster, they're still good enough to quietly work their way to 10 wins after 13 games.
In ATS trends, the Suns are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days rest and 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games following a loss, while the Spurs are 7-2 ATS in their last nine home games against a team with a losing record and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 home games overall.
Head to head, the Suns are 3-1-2 ATS in the last six meetings in San Antonio and the road team is 7-3-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings overall.
The Suns have done well ATS when playing on zero days rest, but while the Spurs are still a work in progress, I like their chances to cover the spread at home where they are still undefeated.
