Randy’s Free Pick

The Denver Nuggets lose on the road by an average of 3.5 points, and they’re dealing with a ton of injuries at the moment. This is also a weird start time especially for a west coast team which may throw them off a bit. The Philadelphia 76ers are the healthier side for the most part, and they’re at home, where they win by an average of 5.7 points. I’ll lay the chalk given the Nuggets injury report.
