Spurs fend off Atlanta

San Antonio is coming off a 117-111 win at home over the Hawks on Tuesday night. Despite the win, they failed to cover for the fourth straight game. The Spurs are 45-33 overall, 14-24 on the road, 41-35-2 against the spread and 42-35-1 with the over. The Spurs are currently seventh in the West, but tied for Oklahoma City for the final two spots.

The Spurs are putting up 111.9 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.8 percent as a team from the field and a league-best 39.5 percent from the arc. Defensively, San Antonio is giving up 110.4 points per game while opponents shoot 46.3 percent from the field. DeMar DeRozan is leading the team with 21.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game. LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 21.2 points and 9.1 rebounds per contest.

Nuggets lose at Golden State

Denver is coming off a 116-102 loss at Golden State last night for their third loss in four games. Denver is also just 1-5 against the spread in its last six games. The Nuggets are 51-26 on the season, 31-7 at home, 39-38 against the spread and 45-31-1 with the under. Following the loss, Denver is now two games behind the Warriors in the West with five games to play. They have a 1.5-game lead on Houston, who is in third.

The Nuggets are giving up just 106.9 points per game while opponents shoot 45.8 percent from the field. Offensively, Denver is putting up 110.8 points per game while shooting 46.5 percent from the field. Nikola Jokic is leading the team with 20.1 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game. Jamal Murray is adding 18.2 points and 4.8 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

San Antonio

The Spurs are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five conference games.

Denver

The Nuggets have covered in four straight on no rest, but have failed to cover in four straight at home.

Prediction:

The Nuggets are not playing well offensively right now, but I don’t think that will be as much of a problem tonight against this San Antonio team. The Spurs are not an offensive power either and they are coming off a game last night as well. I think San Antonio looks sluggish on the road against this Denver team that has been very strong at home and needs the win to avoid slipping further in the top of the West.
