Picks and Parlays

Similarly, the staff at Picks and Parlays is also picking the Spurs to force Game 7 and cover the spread. However, Picks and Parlays is picking a really close, 111-110, finish in the Spurs' favor, suggesting this could come down to the wire.

Winners and Whiners

On the other hand, the staff at Winners and Whiners is picking the Nuggets to finish within 2.5-points of the Spurs, covering the spread.
