The over is 7-1 in Nuggets last 8 overall. The over is 19-7 in Spurs last 26 home games. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio.
The Denver Nuggets continue to have issues keeping their head afloat this season due to so many injuries, and an undermanned team usually has even more issues on the end of a back to back. It also doesn't help the Nuggets played overtime last night. I expect tired legs from the Nuggets in this game. The San Antonio Spurs are playing some of their better ball of the season right now, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 7.4 points while shooting 47.4 percent from the field. Give me the Spurs in this near pick em contest.
