Denver Nuggets (46-20) @ San Antonio Spurs (16-49) – 8:00 PM

The Denver Nuggets lost their 20th game in the season last Tuesday, but they are still on top of the West. Playing on the road they want to come back to the W column and for that they have to beat one of the worst teams of the season, the Spurs. If they lose, San Antonio will become the third team to reach 50 losses this season. Of course the favourites are the Nuggets, by 12.5 points.

  • Spread: DEN Nuggets -12.5/SA Spurs +12.5
  • Over/under: 236 points

At this point of the season, both are in ninth in their respective conferences, but the Lakers won the last two games and the Raptors lost their two. However, even playing on the road, the Raptors are favourites by 2.5 points.
