Nuggets vs Spurs ATS Pick: Nuggets -13

Looking at the standings, it’s easy to see why our NBA spreads favor the Nuggets, and by so much. They have been one of the best teams all season, and this is after winning the NBA championship in 2023. Right now, they’re set to lock the No.1 seed after this game with the Spurs and are the favorites to win back-to-back titles.

The win over the Timberwolves was significant, with Minnesota one of three teams running for the top seed in the West. The Nuggets and Timberwolves got into that game tied for first, with the winner taking a clear advantage.

Nikola Jokic put on a dazzling display against the Timberwolves, proving why he is the front-runner in our NBA lines to win his third MVP. He scored 41 points on 20 shots, 11 rebounds, and seven assists. Jokic also got help from Jamal Murray, who scored 20 points, while Michael Porter Jr. scored 18.

In addition to the Nuggets’ excellent basketball all season, other factors could tilt the game in their favor. The Spurs are dealing with injuries. All of the Spurs’ top four scorers didn’t play in the loss to the Thunder and could miss this game.

 

 

Nuggets vs Spurs Over/Under Pick: Under 222½

With the season winding down and the possibility of the Spurs playing without at least a few of their best scorers, it makes sense for NBA picks to lean toward the under. In the game against the Thunder, when Victor Wembanyama, Devin Vassell, Keldon Johnson, and Jeremy Sochan sat out, the Spurs only scored 89 points and hit the under on a line set at 215½.

The Nuggets might blow out the Spurs. However, given that the Nuggets are such big favorites, the team’s bench could play a significant role. In the win over the Timberwolves, Christian Braun and Peyton Watson played important minutes in getting the win. Their reward could be extra minutes against the Spurs to prepare for the playoffs.

 

 

Nuggets vs Spurs Player Prop Pick: Nikola Jokic Under 49½ Pts + Reb + Ast (-118)

This will be a weird game for NBA player prop bets because of the uncertainty of injuries for each team. Most of the Spurs’ top players missed their last game, while the Nuggets have mainly secured the top seed in the West and could use this as an opportunity to rest key players before the playoffs start. This could lead to an off night for Jokic, as he does not need a dominating game to beat the Spurs.
