San Antonio vs Denver: prediction for the NBA match
San Antonio Spurs
Not too long ago San Antonio put up a string of four victories. Gregg Popovich's men managed to beat Portland, Golden State, Washington and Boston. But it didn't last long. Spurs' players are not too good. After that Spurs were beaten by Phoenix (104:108) and New York (109:121).
So far San Antonio are in a rebuilding process, which is not going so well. Spurs need to strengthen their squad. We think that board will bring new players into the team's roster soon. There are rumours about Domantas Sabonis going to AT&T center soon.
Seems like Denver's fairytale is over now. After a few bad decisions Nuggets' performance worsened. An ex-played of Orlando Aaron Gordon is heavily criticized now. He is looking not as good as he was at Magic. Jamal Murray and Michael Porter are injuried, so Denver have to do without them now.
Now Nuggets are in a shaky form. Mike Malone's men are alternating wins and losses. For example, the Nuggets have just recorded a victory over New York (113:99) and then team was beaten by Chicago (97:109).
In 3 out of 4 most recent away matches Nuggets failed to beat that total in regular time.
Doug averages 11,9 points per game in the current season
Despite all their problems, Nuggets are stronger than San Antonio. Nuggets have Nikola Jokic in their roster. Spurs don't have a player of that level in their squad. We think that Malone's men should be able to record a victory in this match. In our opinion, Nuggets will bag the victory at Texas.
Our prediction - Denver to win (Including OT)
Denver is a slow-paced team. In each of four most recent matches of the Nuggets a total of 217,5 points was not beaten. We are not expecting a high-scoring game, if there won't be an overtime.
Our second bet is on total under 217,5 points
