The Spurs have historically been a money-burner when playing without rest as they are tonight at the Nuggets. Get down on Denver as the home favorites vs. San Antonio.
Our Tuesday night NBA selection is on the Denver Nuggets at home minus the points over the San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs won last night, 110-105 in overtime at Golden State. And that win kick-started San Antonio's annual "Rodeo Road Trip," which coincides with the time that the Stock Show and Rodeo invades the AT&T Center. Overall, the Spurs will play eight straight games away from home, and tonight's game at the Pepsi Center in Denver will be one of the most difficult to win. And that's for two reasons.
First, Denver is 30-13 since trading for Chauncey Billups on November 3. And secondly, San Antonio has historically been dismal when playing without rest, with a 23-44 ATS record their last 67. Take Denver.
Free Pick: Nuggets -5½ (-110)
