Starting with veterans DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge do the Spurs have assets for NBA playoffs betting odds value. The big question for San Antonio’s playoff prospects is secondary scoring depth. Extending the positives about the Spurs is a culture and tradition of winning. By contrast the Denver Nuggets have had to overcome a history of failure. Head coach Mike Malone is an NBA coach of the year candidate for his work at getting Denver back to post season status. Certainly, adding to the Nuggets appeal is All Star center and marquee man Nikola Jokic.

So far in the playoffs Nikola Jokic has shown well for Denver. Consider his average of 20.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 9.3 assists per game. This is an extension of a breakout regular season in which Jokic scored 20.1 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 7.3 assists per outing. Most important of all Jokic has given Denver its first bona fide marquee man since Carmelo Anthony. For a franchise that has often operated under the shadows Jokic closed a considerable credibility gap for the Nuggets.
Coach Mike Malone
In the same way Nuggets head coach Mike Malone had a career season as well. At the beginning is the fact that he was named a head coach in the NBA All Star Game. Overall in his fourth season on the job Malone has continued his leadership in a methodical improvement. Denver is making its first playoff appearance since 2013. Malone is in his first NBA playoff as a head coach.
Stats to Consider
Late Denver has been in the red as an NBA playoffs betting odds road dog. As an example, the Nuggets have covered only three of their last seven getting points on the road. Five of Denver’s last six in that role went over the total. By contrast the Spurs have drowned gamblers in red ink as a home chalk. San Antonio has come away with the cash in only one of their last seven games laying points at AT&T Center. Three of their last five in that role have gone under the total.
Head to Head Stats
Denver has had the recent sportsbook online value advantage in their series with San Antonio. For example, the Nuggets have covered four of their last six matchups with the Spurs. Three of the last four between these teams have gone over the total. Further, Denver has been in the black at AT&T Center. In their last five trips to San Antonio the Nuggets have paid three times. Three of the last five in this rivalry at AT&T Center have gone over the total.
Matchup to Watch
In this situation San Antonio has not shown NBA playoffs betting odds profitability at home. Secondary scoring remains a concern for the Spurs. They are too reliant upon DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge. Additionally, Denver will boast the best player on the court in Jokic.
