NBA Betting Trends
The Nuggets are 2-7 against the spread in their last nine road games and 2-6 ATS in their last eight games playing on 1 day of rest.
The Spurs are 15-6 against the spread in their last 21 home games, but 1-7 ATS in their last eight conference games.
San Antonio is coming off a pair of wins which snapped a really poor stretch for them. They seemed to have gotten themselves back on track. That should help tonight against a Denver team that has struggled on the road. The Nuggets are a juggernaut at home, but can’t seem to bring it with them on the road. I will take the Spurs to pick up the slack at home and pick up another win.
