Denver had its 15-game winning streak snapped last time out, as it suffered a 110-86 setback to the New Orleans Hornets as 7.5-point road favorites Monday night, while going UNDER the total for a third consecutive contest. The Nuggets have played their last three games without the services of point guard Ty Lawson, who is dealing with a right heel injury. “He’s important to us because he makes everyone else fit,” commented Nuggets coach George Karl. The team is 17-20 overall when playing away from the Pepsi Center, which includes an even 12-12 mark versus Western Conference opponents. Denver is 10-3 ATS in its last 13 games following a SU loss, which is important to consider when making your NBA expert picks Wednesday night.
The Nuggets have won four of their last eight games against the Spurs at the AT&T Center, while going 7-10 in that situation dating back to the 2004-05 campaign. Denver and San Antonio have split the first two meetings of this year’s series, with the home team winning each time, while the OVER has cashed in both affairs.
San Antonio had its five-game winning streak snapped in a 96-95 defeat to the Houston Rockets as 1.5-point road favorites Sunday, while going UNDER the posted total of 212.5. The Spurs are focused on trying to hold onto the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, especially since point guard Tony Parker has been back in the lineup the last two games. “TP is getting his rhythm back,” stated Spurs forward Tim Duncan. The squad is 30-4 overall at home, including a stellar 20-3 mark versus conference foes. San Antonio is 13-3 ATS in its last 16 games playing on two days rest.
The Spurs rank fourth in the league in averaging 104.3 points per game, while sitting second shooting 48.7 percent from the floor. San Antonio has used 13 different starters this season and has the most players with at least one start in the NBA. Over his last five games, Duncan is averaging 23.8 points and 13.4 rebounds.
Sports bettors will likely back the Spurs due to their 35-17-3 ATS mark in the last 55 home games, while the Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last five games.
