The Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs have battled through the first six games of their series to give us the first Game 7 of the 2019 NBA Playoffs. The Nuggets are currently 6-point favorites at home for Game 7, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. 

However, as it's always smart to hear what those in the industry have to say before placing a bet, here are some expert predictions for Saturday's Game 7 between the Nuggets and Spurs.

Spurs vs Nuggets Prediction

Sports Chat Place

The staff at Sports Chat Place believe the Nuggets have the better chance of winning this game straight up, but also think the veteran Spurs' team under Gregg Popovich will cover the spread on the road Saturday night.

International Business Times

The staff at the International Business Times shares a similar opinion to Sports Chat Place in predicting Denver will win a close one, but San Antonio's massive advantage in veteran playoff experience should help lead the Spurs to a cover.


The staff at TopBet is also going with San Antonio here, picking the Spurs and their veteran talent to get the best of Denver on its home floor Saturday night, 112-110. TopBet attributes much of this pick to Nikola Jokic's huge performance in Game 6 that still saw the Nuggets fall short by nearly 20 points, implying Denver may not have what it takes on this stage.

Overall, two of the three expert opinions highlighted above are backing the Nuggets to win outright, with all three experts predicting the Spurs to cover the spread.
