Denver Sports Betting is here to provide a betting preview of tonight’s Denver Nuggets game.

Denver will face the San Antonio Spurs Monday evening at Pepsi Center with tip-off set for 7:00 p.m. MST.

The Nuggets have just two games remaining before the All-Star break and enter Monday’s contest with a 37-16 record.

Betting trends/Stats:

Denver initially opened up as -6 favorites, but the number has spiked to Denver -7 as game time approaches. The public is riding with Denver as 64% of public bets are heading the Nuggets way.

The Nuggets have won three in a row, including a well-earned victory against the Utah Jazz last week in which Denver had just seven active players.

Denver has scored over 100 points in four of their last five games, and have been able to stay afloat given their roster has been ravagged by injuries.

The over/under is set at 216 after opening at 221. 65% of public money is going towards the over.

The two teams are a combined 54-49-1 against the O/U this season.

San Antonio has struggled ATS this season, posting a 22-29-1 mark. The Nuggets have not been great ATS, but own a winning record of 26-24-3.

San Antonio has struggled throughout this season with a losing record of 22-30. Denver has feasted on teams with a losing record this year, owning a 22-8 record.

That said, there is something to be said for the fact that Monday’s contest is the second to last before the break, and Denver will face the Los Angeles Lakers later this week.

It’s not impossible to think Denver’s players could overlook this game a bit, although the team has been playing superb ball as of late.

The Nuggets rank within the top-10 in both offensive and defensive rating around the NBA and have played sound ball on both ends of the floor for a majority of the season.

The Spurs rank within the middle of the pack offensively; however, their defense has struggled and could be exploited by Denver’s offense Monday.
