Our experts analyze the matchup and make their picks.

Betting Trends to Know

Gregg Popovich loves himself some Denver.

Since becoming coach of the Spurs in 1996-97, his teams are 30-18 straight up and 34-14 against the spread in Denver. The Spurs are 16-5 ATS in Denver over the past decade, covering the spread by 5.8 points per game. Evan Abrams

This over/under has been bet down to 208 after opening at 208.5 (see live odds here). When a total has dropped in an NBA playoff game since 2005, the under has gone 279-246-8 (53.1%).

The more the line drops, the more profitable it’s been to bet the under. John Ewing
