Denver at Philadelphia

1 unit on Denver -2.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
A tale of two teams here. Two short years ago, the Sixers would have blown the Nuggets off the court. That is not the case anymore as Denver has been winning games away from home for the first time in a long time. The Sixers are a one man show and a bad basketball team. They won't have much of an answer for the Nuggets frontcourt and depth in this game. Philly is 12-28 ATS in home games after covering 2 of their last 3 against the spread over the last 3 seasons. Denver is the much better defensive team in this game. When this was at -1, I was going to make it a two-star pick. The line has moved quite a bit so we'll go with a one star pick on the Nuggies minus the points.
