Spurs Rodeo Road Trip


Spurs are 2-1 on 15th Annual Trek

Madison Square Garden will be the host of the NBA matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and the New York Knicks on Sunday. The game will be televised by ABC and will tip a little after 3:30 pm EST.

The San Antonio Spurs “Rodeo Road Trip” will take them to eight cities. They will travel 7,378 miles. This is the 15th annual trip of this kind for the Spurs. They are 2-1 this year after Friday’s 103-92 win over the Detroit Pistons. San Antonio won’t play at home again until March 1 against the Indiana Pacers.

This grueling grind of a road trip first started in 2003.  The Spurs have produced an amazing .697 (84-36) winning percentage. The team also has a point differential plus-485. Tony Parker has amassed the most career points on this trip, accumulating 1,789.

Oddsmakers opened the Spurs as -7.5-point favorites versus the Knicks, while the game’s total opened at 215.5.

New York was a 131-123 loser in its last match at home against the Denver Nuggets. They failed to cover the -1.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 254 sent OVER bettors to the payout window. The Knicks have dropped four straight and 20 of their last 26. New York gave up at least 30 points in each quarter for the first time this season in a 131-123 loss to Denver on Friday.

The Spurs were a 103-92 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Detroit Pistons. They covered the -5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (195) made winners of UNDER bettors. Kawhi Leonard has the hot hand for the Spurs. He’s scored at least 30 points in seven consecutive games. He has scored in double figures in 82 straight games.
