Spurs, Nuggets on NBA odds

The red-hot San Antonio Spurs will be attempting to run their winning streak into the double digits and pay off for those doing NBA betting on Wednesday night when they take to the hardwood at their own arena for a game against the visiting Denver Nuggets.

All San Antonio has been doing lately is winning – they ran their streak to nine games on Monday with a 118-110 home win over the Phoenix Suns. That wasn't enough for Spurs supporters at betting outlets like Bovada though, as they had been favored by 10.5 points in the eight-point win.

In fact, San Antonio is just 2-3 ATS in their last five, although the Nuggets are a lowly 2-9 ATS in 11 recent games.

Tim Duncan picked up 20 points and 15 rebounds in that win over Phoenix, while Gary Neal chipped in with 22 points off the bench. Tony Parker had 19 points in that matchup.

On the season San Antonio is now 24-3 straight up and 16-10-1 against the spread. The Nuggets, meanwhile, enter Wednesday's road game at 16-10 SU and an ugly 8-16-2 vs. the NBA lines. Denver scraped by in a 115-113 home win over the Timberwolves on Saturday, failing to cover the 10.5-point spread on the NBA lines set by sportsbooks.

Also 2-3 ATS in their last five games, the Nuggets are 4-0-1 on the OVER/UNDER in that span for those doing NBA betting. One of those ATS losses came against the Spurs on December 16 when they fell 113-112 at home as a 1-point favorite on the lines.

The Spurs are back in action on Thursday on the road against the Orlando Magic, but the marquee contest for the night has the Miami Heat in Phoenix to battle the Suns. The Heat had their own lengthy winning streak snapped at home by the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night, as they fell 98-96 as modest 6.5-point favorites on the basketball odds.

Dwyane Wade had a team-high 22 points in that game for the Heat, who have disappointed on the basketball odds at just 1-3-1 in their past five games and 13-16-1 overall on the year. Basically, betting on the Heat to win so far this year hasn't paid off.

The Suns haven't been a lucrative proposition on the basketball lines either, as they're just 11-15-1 ATS (and below .500 at 13-14 SU) through 27 games. It's been even worse for Phoenix at home, where they've managed to cover the line in just four of 12 games.

Bettors at outlets like Bovada will note that the Heat blew out the Suns 123-96 when the teams met in Miami on November 17. Miami covered the 8-point spread that night.
