#571 SAN ANTONIO (+) over Denver at 9:05 PM EST
With playoff revenge from last year, San Antonio will stroll right into Denver and pull off this minor upset. The Nuggets enter this conference battle off three straight wins and covers over the Trailblazers, Jazz and Suns and they’re in prime position to fall. Let’s take a peek inside the numbers.

Since December 21st, 1994, these two Western Conference foes have tangle 115 times and San Antonio has been a dominant force posting a solid 82-33 SU and 70-43 ATS record. As a guest in this situation, the Spurs jump to a highly profitable 39-16 ATS including a sensational 31-7 ATS in this set if they are running the floor with at least one day of rest. Road dog roles have been kind to San Antonio lately too. In fact, since December 16th, 2019, head coach Gregg Popovich’s troops have cashed nine of their last 13 as a guest grabbing points. Equally impressive, when coming off a blowout loss of 20 points or more, the Spurs hold a respectable 37-21-1 ATS mark provided they are running the floor against a foe that arrives off a straight up win. If San Antonio is fighting a foe that checks in off two or more straight up victories, this team trend tightens up to a reliable 20-8-1 ATS.

As stated, Denver has played well since that surprising loss at Detroit on February 2nd. Unfortunately, this will prove to be a tough spot for the Nuggets. When priced as an underdog or favorite or -8 or less and running the floor against a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage less than .500, Denver owns a pitiful 33-50-2 ATS record provided it takes the court with confidence off three or more straight up wins. If the Nuggets are competing against a foe that hits the court off a pointspread loss, this situation crashes to a horrible 16-32-2 ATS.

The Spurs haven’t exactly been one of the best road teams in the league this year (8-18 SU away). That fact is noted. However, after falling to the Nuggets in seven games in the first-round of the playoffs last season, Coach Pop will have his boys revved up and ready for this payback opportunity. Take San Antonio. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
