The Denver Nuggets look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. On the season, the Nuggets are averaging 100.5 points on 43.1 percent shooting and are allowing 103.9 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Ty Lawson is averaging 15.5 points and 9.7 assists while Wilson Chandler is averaging 13.7 points and six rebounds. Kenneth Faried is grabbing 8.8 rebounds and Danilo Gallinari is shooting 38.4 percent from the field. The Denver Nuggets are playing better ball as of late by winning five of their last eight games, and they’re shooting 44.1 percent in their last five games. This will be the Nuggets first home game in 12 days, and they’ve won three straight in front of their home fans.
The 76ers are 13-6-2 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 0 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Nuggets are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The 76ers are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Denver and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
Once again we're getting a ton of points with the 76ers, a team that continues to keep games close. Also, I'm not sure what the Nuggets have done to deserve such heavy respect. Either way, the best bet here is the road team.
