The Nuggets are 0-9 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. The 76ers are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. Western Conference and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Nuggets are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Philadelphia and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings overall.
The 76ers have played fairly well on their home court and the Nuggets are going through one of their worst stretches of the season. I like the value of the 76ers and the points.
