Basketball betting fans can have their choice of two division leaders when the Spurs meet the Nuggets in one of the top bet on basketball matchups of the season. The San Antonio Spurs are the top team in the southwest division and can still claim the best record in the western conference with a strong basketball betting stretch run.
The Spurs continue to show good form and finished January with three consecutive straight up wins and covers. As is always the case the Spurs are one of the top defensive teams that you can bet on basketball with as they ranked 6th in the league. Their offense, however, ranked just 21st.
Overall the Spurs had a basketball betting record of 32-14 straight up and 22-23 against the basketball betting lines. In road basketball betting action San Antonio was 12-9 against the spread and 8-13 under the total.
Tony Park has been a great bet on basketball plus for San Antonio as he led the Spurs in scoring with an average of 20.6 points per game. Parker also led the team in assists with an average of 6.5 per game. Tim Duncan was the Spurs leading rebound man, as usual, with an average of 10.3 per game.
The Denver Nuggets continue to show good basketball betting form and are atop the northwest division standings. Denver’s basketball betting success began soon after they traded Allen Iverson to Detroit as coach George Karl declared a declaration of independence and asked Carmelo Anthony to step up his play.
Anthony has lived up to his end of the basketball betting bargain as he leads Denver in scoring with an average of just over 20 points per game. Denver had an overall basketball betting record of 31-16 straight up and 27-19-1 against the basketball betting lines.
In home basketball betting action Denver was 15-9-1 against the spread while posting a mark of 14-11 over the total. Denver was an offensive oriented basketball betting team and ranked 4th in the NBA for total offense while ranking just 19th overall on defense.
