Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: San Antonio. As of Saturday afternoon, 65 percent of public bets have been laid on the Spurs.

Injury Report: Nuggets shooting guard Gary Harris missed the last game due to a personal matter and is questionable for tonight. Paul Millsap is targeting a late February return from his wrist injury. For the Spurs, point guard Tony Parker is probably with a sprained ankle after missing the last game. Danny Green has been out the last five games with tightness in his groin and is questionable tonight. Kawhi Leonard has missed the last three games with a partial tear in his left shoulder and is questionable tonight. Rudy Gay is out until late January with a heel injury.

Who the Trends Like: Denver is 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings overall and 1-4 ATS in the last four meetings in San Antonio. The under is 21-8 in the last 29 meetings in San Antonio.

Who We Like: If Leonard returns tonight, I like San Antonio. If Harris misses another game, I like San Antonio even more than that. If even one of those scenarios happens, it would increase my confidence level. But I'd still like the Spurs regardless. Denver hasn't fared well in recent matchups and LaMarcus Aldridge has stepped up in a huge way while Leonard has been absent this season. I like the Spurs to frustrate the Nuggets with their slow temps and great team defense. Take the hosts to cover.
