The 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The Nuggets are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 3-1-1 in 76ers last 5 Monday games. The under is 5-0 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The 76ers are 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Denver and 12-4-2 ATS in the last 18 meetings.

The Philadelphia 76ers in the underdog role is attractive given how they've looked all year. However, the Denver Nuggets win at home by an average of 10.8 points while shooting 52 percent from the field, and they're 24-13 ATS at home. It's hard to step in front of those numbers. The chalk is reasonable. Give me the Nuggets.
