San Antonio has won 15 games in a row, including a 108-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets as 13.5-point home favorites Wednesday, while going UNDER the betting total for a fourth consecutive contest. The Spurs are 27-8 SU away from the AT&T Center this season, including a 16-5 mark versus Western Conference opponents, which is important to consider when making your NBA predictions. Offensively, the team is led by the play of point guard Tony Parker, who is averaging 17.5 points and 6.1 assists. San Antonio is 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS as road favorites of 6.5 to 9 points during the 2013-14 campaign.
The Spurs rank fifth in the NBA in averaging 105.3 points per game, while they sit behind just four teams in surrendering just 97.5 points a contest. San Antonio has out-shot its opponent in 24 of 35 road games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro basketball odds page—winning each of those contests when finishing with a higher percentage.
Denver will look to put an end to a two-game losing streak, while it has gone UNDER the betting total in three consecutive affairs. The Nuggets have three of five probable starters averaging double figures, with point guard Ty Lawson leading the way at 17.9 points a contest. He’s tallied a double-double in 14 of his last 28 games on the floor. The franchise is 19-16 SU at the Pepsi Center, including an even 10-10 mark versus conference rivals. Denver is 7-8 SU and 10-5 ATS in March this season, with the OVER going 8-7 in that situation.
The Nuggets have lost four of their last eight home games to the Spurs, including a 102-94 setback on Nov. 5. Denver’s bench has outscored its opponent in 48 of 72 games this season—scoring 50-or-more points in 13 games—posting a 9-4 mark in those occurrences.
Sports bettors will likely back the Spurs due to their 8-1 ATS mark in their last nine games, while the Nuggets are on a 2-5 ATS run versus Southwest division opponents.
