The Nuggets look to rebound after the lowly New Orleans Hornets snapped their streak of 15. The Spurs, on the other hand, look to open up their lead in the Western Conference. Check out NBA odds at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
After Denver’s (49-23) impressive streak, the Nuggets are sitting in a tie for third in the West with the LA Clippers. There is no room for error, however, because the Memphis Grizzlies are just a game behind both of those teams and have been just as good as the Clippers in the last 10 games. Denver’s strength this season has been playing at home in Denver, where the Nuggets are an incredible 32-3, the only team with that good of a record at home is the Miami Heat. With that said, the Nuggets haven’t been great on the road with a below .500 record of 17-20.
The Spurs (53-17) do not put up win streaks of over 20 games but they do win a ton of games. San Antonio won four games in a row before just losing to the Houston Rockets by one point, away from home. The Spurs are also excellent at home at 30-4, losing to just the Knicks, Clippers, Suns and Blazers. Tony Parker is back after his injury and has averaged just under 23 points per game since he has been back.
The Nuggets are very good against the spread, 43-29 this season, 13-9 after a loss and 19-18 on the road. The Spurs are 37-31-2 ATS, 10-6 after losses and 18-14-2 at home.
As much as I want to pick the Nuggets, they aren’t very good at all away from home while the Spurs are incredible in San Antonio. I am not sure how Denver will react after having their streak broken by a team they should definitely beat. San Antonio wins and covers this game at sports books.
