The Denver Nuggets and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night.
The Denver Nuggets have been in red-hot form as they’ve won 10 of their last 13 games overall, but they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting routed by the Raptors in a 127-115 home loss on Saturday. Nikola Jokic led the team with 26 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, Will Barton added 16 points while Bones Hyland chipped in with 17 points and seven assists in just 19 minutes off the bench. As a team, the Nuggets shot 55 percent from the field and 11 of 27 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control after pouring in 36 points in the third quarter to build an eight—point lead, only to get run down in the fourth quarter where they got outscored by 34-16. DeMarcus Cousins had a night to forget as he scored just seven points on one of six shooting off the bench.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in great shape as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be looking to maintain their momentum after outlasting the Magic in a 116-114 overtime home win last night. Joel Embiid led the team with 35 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists, Tobias Harris added 26 points on 10 of 18 shooting while James Harden chipped in with 26 points and six assists. As a team, the 76ers shot 38 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense early and trailed in this one by as many as 17 points, but they hung in the contest and forced overtime where they went on a decisive 7-1 run to escape with the narrow win.
Looking at the betting trends, the Nuggets are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games as an underdog and 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. The 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite and 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 home games against a team with a winning road record.
Head to head, the under is 5-1 in the last six meetings overall, the Nuggets are 0-3-1 ATS in the last four meetings in Philadelphia and the Nuggets are 5-16-2 ATS in the last 23 meetings overall.
The Nuggets could be shorthanded again as Aaron Gordon and Zeke Nnaji are both listed as questionable, while the 76ers are just about at full strength except for Danny Green who is still out. The Nuggets were on fire before dropping their last two games, while the 76ers are playing this one on zero days’ rest after bouncing back from their humiliating loss to the Nets, with an unconvincing two-point overtime win last night. It’s hard to split these two teams, but with the 76ers playing on zero days’ rest after an overtime game, I’ll lean towards the 76ers to pull off the minor upset on the road.
