76ers vs Nuggets Prediction & Pick

It's worth mentioning right off the bat that keeping an eye on injury updates will be crucial ahead of this matchup. Both Joel Embiid (calf soreness) and James Harden (Achilles) are listed as questionable to suit up for the 76ers. Their statuses will go a long way in whether this will be a close game or not.

Whether Philly's stars suit up or not, Denver has the inside track to winning this game. The Nuggets have posted an impressive 31-6 record inside Ball Arena as they are averaging 120.8 points per home game (No. 4 in NBA). They also own the seventh-best defensive efficiency mark at home.

Look for the Nuggets to exact revenge here after barely losing to the 76ers in Philly back in January.

Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 111 | Nuggets: 116

76ers vs Warriors Best Bet

Denver leads the NBA in three-point shooting percentage in home games this season (40.4%), which makes backing a Nuggets player to get hot from deep a safe bet tonight. Jamal Murray is an enticing option considering he has drained at least a trio of three-pointers in five of his last seven contests.

Keep in mind Philly is also playing its third road game in the last four days. Fatigue is going to play a role on the defensive side as players attempt to keep up with Murray's quickness along the perimeter. Overall, the 76ers are allowing a total of 13.0 made threes over their last three games (No. 17 in NBA).

Bet: Jamal Murray Over 2.5 Made Threes (-140)
