Well-rested Warriors can run riot over poor-travelling Nuggets

| 15.01.2014

BT Sport hosts another double-header of NBA action overnight with two more playoff-hunting sides filling the box.

The San Antonio Spurs, who lead the Western Conference, host the Utah Jazz, while the sixth-placed Golden State Warriors are at home to the Denver Nuggets.

Both sides are heavy favourites to win their respective matches, but fear not, as we’ve dug out far better value for each match.

San Antonio Spurs (-23.0) to beat Utah Jazz @ 11/4

Gregg Popovich’s Spurs bid for a sixth straight win, and fourth on the bounce against the Jazz, when the league’s worst side come to town.

The Spurs’ win streak has involved three games at home, with those outings being negotiated with an average winning margin of 21.4 points.

In addition, their dominance over the Jazz is so great that a 23-point handicap isn’t even likely to hold them back, with the December 14th meeting, which San Antonio won 100-84, the latest proof that Tony Parker and co are too hot for Utah to handle.

The head-to-head stats are just as convincing, with the Spurs winning 10 of the last 12 and boasting a 25-2 record over tonight’s rivals at home.

Golden State Warriors to score over 110.0 points against Denver Nuggets @ 1/1

No side has had a heavier workload than the Warriors of late, who haven’t had more than one-day’s break between games since December 5th. Even then, the side strung together some impressive results, losing just once in 12 dalliances.

Now, with four days rest in their legs, they host a Denver Nuggets side whose revival has been strictly limited to their home games.

In their last five road games the Nuggets have dropped four while allowing an average 114.0 points, making the even money that a refreshed Warriors outfit can torch them for 110 a fantastic opportunity.
