Who Public Bettors Like: As of Tuesday evening, 60% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Nuggets to cover the point spread. Meanwhile, 55% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks is on the over.

Who We Like: Denver. The Spurs will  be playing their third game in four days and the fourth of a six-game trip that started in Phoenix, went to Oakland and then to Utah, where they played the Jazz last night. The Nuggets, meanwhile, enter tonight with a two-day rest advantage.

San Antonio remains banged-up as well. LaMarcus Alrdige (knee), Kawhi Leonard (quad) and Rudy Gay (heel) all remain out. The Spurs have failed to cover the spread in six of their last eight games playing on no rest, are 2-8-1 against the number in their last 11 games coming off an ATS win, and are 1-5 at the betting window in their last six games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Nuggets, meanwhile, are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 5-1 against the number in their last six games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous contest, and are 4-1 at the betting window in their last five games playing conference opponents.
