Spurs Hornets Betting Tips – Spurs Look To Keep Strong Play Going Versus Struggling Hornets Monday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/6/2013 6:35:53 PM

The San Antonio Spurs have been red hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games to keep pace with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Clippers for top spot in the NBA’s Western Conference. That isn’t likely to change with San Antonio set to face the worst team in the West to open this online betting week, as the Spurs travel to clash with the New Orleans Hornets this Monday. San Antonio had as many wins on the road as they do at home this season heading in to this past weekend with 13, and while they have obviously spent more time away from home, earning wins against lesser opponents as the visiting team will be crucial to competing for one of the top spots in the West.

The Hornets haven’t done much to slow opponents down with three wins in 16 home games this season, and they have been particular bad of late with just two wins through their last 10 games. New Orleans is still a work in progress, and while the talent is there to eventually contend it most certainly won’t happen this season.

NBA Betting Preview: San Antonio Spurs

While the relative average age of the Spurs’ players would suggest that perhaps they would slow down this season, that hasn’t been the case at all as the numbers actually suggest they have improved. Tony Parker has led San Antonio with 19.1 points and 7.4 assists, while another veteran in Tim Duncan has averaged a team-high 9.7 rebounds per game. Parker and Duncan are a big reason why the Spurs rank third in the NBA in scoring and first in average assists, but they aren’t the only reasons on a sports betting team that boasts solid depth overall.

New Orleans doesn’t have nearly the same power and with rookie first-overall pick Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon each missing extended time this season the Hornets have been stuck in neutral. Ryan Anderson has averaged a team-high 17.9 points per game while last week’s Western Conference player of the week Greivis Vasquez has averaged 13.6 points and a team-high nine assists, but there have been too many holes outside of those two. The return of Gordon will eventually help an offense that ranks 29th in the NBA, but it will take some time for him to get in to game shape.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Spurs have so many weapons that they may very well be able to cover the number for this game with their bench players alone. While there is reason to be optimistic about the future in New Orleans, it will certainly take some time before this team is able to compete with the best the Western Conference has to offer on a nightly basis.
