Denver Nuggets at Philadelphia 76ers Preview & Picks

Philadelphia are tipped to cover as they take down the defending champions.

Denver are not the same team when they hit the road, and the 76ers have a knack for covering when they win.

  • Philadelphia 76ers are 12-0-0 ATS in their last 12 wins
  • 7 of the last 10 meetings have been won by the home team
  • 9 of Denver Nuggets' 13 defeats this season have come on the road
  • The Under has cashed in 5 of Philadelphia's last 7 games

Head To Head

  • Philadelphia 76ers lead the all-time series 53-43
  • Denver Nuggets won 116-111 when the two teams last met on March 27

Denver Nuggets Form

Denver head to Philadelphia have won five of their first seven games of 2024 to improve to 28-13.

The Nuggets reeled off six straight wins in late 2023, only to end the calendar year with a 119-93 defeat to Oklahoma City.

They bounced back quickly though, beating Charlotte 111-93 on New Year’s Day, and they backed that up with a 130-127 victory at Golden State.

Denver failed to make it three-in-a-row though, as they lost 122-120 to Orlando, and they then failed to follow up a 131-114 win over Detroit as they lost 124-11 in Utah.

The Nuggets have not lost since though, returning home to beat New Orleans 125-113 and Indiana 117-109.

Philadelphia 76ers Form

Philadelphia come into this matchup on the back of a couple of wins that have come in response to a three-game losing skid.

The 76ers enjoyed a good run of form in the second half of December as they won 10 times in a 12-game spell, but they ended 2023 with a 105-92 defeat to Chicago.

They got their revenge a couple of nights later as they beat the Bulls 110-97 at home, but they were unable to follow that up.

Philadelphia were beaten 128-92 at home by New York, and then lost 120-109 to Utah before heading out on the road to lose 139-132 in overtime in Atlanta.

The 76ers avoided a fourth consecutive defeat over the weekend though, beating Sacramento 112-93, and they backed that up with a 124-115 victory over Houston last night.

Verdict

Denver's struggles have largely been on the road this season, and Philadelphia can take advantage.

The home team tends to come out on top when these two teams meet, and in recent weeks the 76ers have consistently covered in victories.
