San Antonio vs. Denver, 12/18/2012 21:00
Point Spread: -2/-110 Denver
Denver Nuggets -2
The Spurs have lost three of four during a difficult stretch where they have played a lot of games in few nights. This will be their fifth game in seven days, and they won't have the legs to run with the run-and-gun Nuggets.
Denver has won three of four with a nice win over Memphis during this stretch. It will be the fresher team as it had yesterday off. Plus, it should be the hungrier team as it looks to avenge an embarrassing 126-100 loss in San Antonio on Nov. 17.
Revenge has been a terrific angle to play on the Nuggets, especially when they are on their home floor. Consider that they are on a 65-47 ATS run in home games when out for revenge for a same-season loss to an opponent. They have won by an average score of 107.1 to 99.8 in this situation.
The Nuggets are 6-1 at home this season with the lone loss coming to the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. Their six home wins have come by an average of 11.5 points with all of them coming by at least three points. Take Denver.
