Philadelphia 76ers vs. Denver Nuggets Betting Preview

The Philadelphia 76ers continue their road-stretch as they head to Denver to face the streaking Nuggets. Philadelphia is coming off a tough loss to the Los Angeles Clippers and will hope to bring some momentum back to the locker room with a win over Denver. Up until that loss to the Clippers, the 76ers were playing well, boasting two big wins over the LA Lakers and Golden State Warriors.

The Denver Nuggets sit at fifth in the Western Conference and can increase their station with a win here over the 76ers. They throttled the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night winning the game 126-102 and bringing their record to 28-18.

Most importantly, who should you take at the sportsbook on Tuesday night? The 76ers have been the better team overall against the spread but can they cover the 4.5-points they’re getting?

Philadelphia is leading the Eastern Conference with a record of 32-14 all without one of the most dominant big men in the league. This absence has allowed players like Tobias Harris and Ben Simmons to produce in a larger capacity. The 76ers have one of the best offenses in the league averaging 114.8 points-per-game. More importantly, they have the seventh-ranked defense giving them a leg-up on the competition.

A strong offense coupled with a stronger defense is a recipe for a great game against the Denver Nuggets. The last time these two faced was early 2021, the 76ers lost the game 103-115 but covered the +13.5-point spread. Since that game, the 76ers have become a much better team, going 4-1 in their last five games.

The Nuggets have won two-straight games, first the New Orleans Pelicans and then the Atlanta Hawks. Each win the Nuggets can grab is vital to their positioning in the Western Conference and they can snag another one with a win at home against the 76ers. With Lebron James and Anthony Davis out for another week, the Lakers have been struggling which is perfect for the Nuggets.

What worries me about Denver is how awful they’ve been against the spread this season. With a 22-24 record, the Nuggets have given bettors little confidence. The good news is that the margin is small at only 4.5-points but who should you take at the sportsbook?

Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets Betting Pick

Both of these teams boast great offenses and Denver has a 1-10 ATS record in their last 11 games when playing the 76ers at home. Couple that with the fact that the Denver Nuggets have three players on the “Questionable” list for Tuesday’s game and you’ve got a recipe for a Philadelphia win.

Philadelphia has been great against the spread and can start to strengthen their hold on the Eastern Conference with a win over Denver. Look for Philadelphia to take this game back after their loss to the Clippers, covering the spread and heading to Cleveland with a win.

Betting pick: Philadelphia +4.5, OVER
