Denver Nuggets vs Philadelphia 76ers prediction

This line has moved a lot in the Philadelphia 76ers direction, so I’m expecting the Nuggets to be without a key guy or two. While the 76ers are on the end of a back to back, they’ve been their best at home where they’re 15-6 SU, and they’re 24-13 ATS on the season. The Denver Nuggets have seen 9 of their 13 losses come on the road this season, and it’s the home team that’s won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the 76ers and Nuggets. I’ll lay the reasonable number with Philly at home.
