1.5 units on Denver -4 (-110) (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: WIN
Philadelphia is dealing with several COVID issues and injuries and it comes off a 122-109 loss at Brooklyn that snapped a five-game winning streak on Thursday. The 76ers lost despite the Nets not having Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in the lineup. Denver suffered a tough home loss 124-117 in overtime to Dallas, but the Nuggets are 11-5-2 ATS their last 18 games versus teams with winning records and 5-2-1 ATS their last eight games against teams with at least a .600 winning percentage. The latest news has the 76ers missing Seth Curry COVID, ankle), Mike Scott (knee) and Furkan Korkmaz (abductor) for this game. The fact that Denver is favored by this much on the road is an indicator of the right side in this matchup and play the Nuggets.
