The Denver Nuggets are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, and they probably should win this game. However, the San Antonio Spurs are playing some of their best ball at the moment and this game is more important to them, as they pretty much lock up a spot in the play-in tournament with another win, and they can even get that ninth seed to at least host the first game. The Spurs have also been better on the road this season, where they're also 21-16-1 against the spread. The Nuggets are 14-24 against the spread at home. Give me the road dog.
