The Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs meet Sunday in NBA action at the Frost Bank Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Brooklyn Nets vs San Antonio Spurs prediction.

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have been in a rut as they’ve lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after falling short to the Pacers in a 121-100 loss last night. Cam Thomas led the team with 22 points, eight rebounds and two assists, Cameron Johnson added 14 points off the bench while Dennis Schroder chipped in with 13 points and five assists. As a team, the Nets shot just 42 percent from the field and 10 of 25 from the 3-point line as they struggled to keep pace with the Pacers from the start, allowing 34 points in the second quarter before they got dominated by 62-43 in the second half to get completely blown out in the end. The Nets will take on the Pelicans and Bucks after this one.

San Antonio Spurs

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been in poor form as they’ve lost 10 of their last 13 games overall and they will hoping to avoid a fourth straight defeat after getting routed by the Nuggets in a 117-106 loss on Friday. Jeremy Sochan led the team with 19 points, six rebounds and four assists, Victor Wembenyama and Devin Vassell each scored 17 points while Zach Collins chipped in with 13 points on five of eight shooting off the bench. As a team, the Spurs shot 45 percent from the field and 11 of 29 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and worked hard to cut an early 21-point deficit to just five points, only to see the Nuggets run away with it in the fourth quarter to lose by double digits anyway.

San Antonio Spurs Team Facts

  • The Spurs have lost each of their last 10 home games against opponents who are on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • The Spurs have covered the spread in 11 of their last 12 games as home favorites against Atlantic Division opponents following a loss.
  • Each of the Spurs’ last six home games following a home loss have gone UNDER the total points line.

Brooklyn Nets Team Facts

  • The Nets have lost each of their last nine games as underdogs against Southwest Division opponents.
  • The Nets have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine road games against teams that held a losing record.
  • Seven of the Nets’ last eight road games against Southwest Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Brooklyn Nets vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The Nets are still shorthanded with Jacob Gilyard and Ben Simmons both out, while the Spurs are keeping an eye on Cedi Osman who is still listed as questionable due to an ankle sprain. You couldn’t back either of these two teams with any confidence these days given how poor they’ve been all season, but the Nets are playing their second game of a back to back set and the Nuggets were more than competitive against the red-hot Nuggets in their last outing, so I’m leaning towards the Spurs to take care of business in a close one.
