Denver Nuggets vs Philadelphia 76ers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Winners of 3 games in their last 4 outings the Denver Nuggets hit the road once again as they take on Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers. All the focus will be on the matchup between the two big men here, but as far as head-to-head records go the Nuggets have had the upper hand winning 4 of the last 6. They’re on a solid run of 6 wins in 7 road games at the moment, but coming into this game the oddsmakers have them as 3.5-point underdogs. One of the reasons why that is could be the fact that all 5 starters are on the injury report, so we’re unsure who will actually suit up for head coach Michael Malone. As long as Jokic plays, which he should, I believe the Nuggets will have a chance here. The big fella is averaging almost a triple double in the last 5 games vs Embiid, he’s currently the odds-on favorite to win his 3rd regular season MVP trophy.

The Sixers and Embiid will be playing their 2nd game in two days here, which isn’t ideal when you have the reigning champions coming to town. It was an early tip-off and Philly came out on top 124-115, behind Embiid’s 41 points and 10 rebounds. Tyrese Maxey also chipped in 27, both he and Embiid played 30+ minutes in the win. When playing on the 2nd night of a back-to-back the Sixers are 2-4 SU this season, with their 2 wins coming against sub-par teams like Portland and Charlotte. Philly has been a relatively safe bet at home to cover the spread this season going 15-6 ATS, they’re also on a run of 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games vs the Nuggets.

Philadelphia 76ers Point Spread

Philadelphia 76ers -3.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds at time of publishing.

Denver’s biggest flaw this season has been their road record at just 11-9 SU. So even though the 76ers are playing their 2nd game in two nights I feel like they should still get the job done here. Embiid always gets up for these type of games, he had 47 points and 18 rebounds in the last game between these two teams. I’ll take the Sixers to cover here.

Nuggets vs 76ers Total Points: Over 226.5

Over 226.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds at time of publishing.

Tonight’s projected total of 226.5 points has been surpassed in both meetings during the regular season last year, with the game in Philadelphia producing a whopping 245 points. Teams generally relax a bit more on defense when playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back, this could very well be the case with the 76ers here. The Utah Jazz put 120 points past them in their last game in this scenario, and with the Nuggets being one of the highest scoring teams in the entire NBA they could once again face issues on that end. The over has cashed in 4 of the last 6 Denver games, there is a noticeable trend of games played in January going over the total with that happening in 6 of their last 9. For the season the Sixers are 12-9 on the O/U in home games, if they’re smart here they’ll try to get out in transition and push the pace here. I feel like backing the over is the way to go in tonight’s game.
