The Nuggets are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in San Antonio. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets are coming off a gritty win over OKC and still has enough depth to hang around, but you're asking a lot of them to continue winning games being as shorthanded as they are in their backcourt. The San Antonio Spurs have been underdogs in all three bubble games, and they've covered all three games and are a last second made shot against the 76ers from being 3-0 SU. Oddsmakers seem to have forgotten that this is a veteran Spurs club that's fighting to keep a ridiculous playoff streak alive. The Spurs aren't going down without a fight.

For the fourth time in the bubble, give me the Spurs and the free buckets.
