The Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs meet Friday in NBA action at the Frost Bank Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Nuggets vs Spurs prediction.

Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are still piling on the wins as they have won five of their last six games overall and they will be eager to build on their three-game win streak after outlasting the Timberwolves in a 116-107 win on Wednesday. Nikola Jokic led the team with 41 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists on 16 of 20 shooting, Jamal Murray added 20 points with six assists while Michael Porter Jr chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Nuggets shot 55 percent from the field and 11 of 25 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sluggish start and trailed going into halftime, before they exploded for 67 points in the second half where Jokic barely missed.

San Antonio Spurs

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been in a rut as they’ve lost four of their last six games overall and they will be hoping for a better performance after getting run over by the Thunder in a 127-89 road loss on Wednesday. Zach Collins led the team with 20 points, Tre Jones and Raiquan Gray each scored 13 points while Sidy Cissoko chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Spurs shot just 33 percent from the field and nine of 40 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense and could never recover after getting outscored by 34-11 in the first quarter. David Duke Jr had a rough game of just six points on two of eight shooting while Sandro Mamukelashvili finished scoreless on zero of eight shooting.

San Antonio Spurs Team Facts

  • The Spurs have won 18 of their last 20 night games against the Nuggets at Frost Bank Center.
  • The Spurs have covered the spread in each of their last eight games against the Nuggets at Frost Bank Center following a loss.
  • Seven of the last eight games between the Nuggets and Spurs at Frost Bank Center have gone OVER the total points line.

Denver Nuggets Team Facts

  • The Nuggets have won each of their last 13 night games against teams that held a losing record.
  • The Nuggets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last nine games at Frost Bank Center following a win.
  • Each of the Nuggets’ last seven road games against Southwest Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Nuggets vs Spurs prediction

The Nuggets come into this meeting as one of the hottest teams in the league, they are almost fully healthy. The Nuggets shouldn’t have too much trouble running up a score against this slumping Spurs team, who just lost by 38 points in their last outing. The line seems scary for this one, but the Nuggets are rolling at the moment and I think they get the win and cover on the road.
