5* NBA NON-CONFERENCE GAME OF THE MONTH
Denver vs. Philadelphia,
01/18/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 108 - 104
Point Spread: -5½/-105 Philadelphia
Despite opening the season with a 10-3 record, I don't think the 76ers are quite getting the respect they deserve. That lack of respect has them jumping out to an 11-2 record ATS, and they find themselves in another favorable spot tonight.
Denver comes in off a big win at Milwaukee, but will be playing the second game of a back-to-back road set. The Nuggets are notoriously known as a bad road team, which makes them a must fade against a top level team. Philadelphia is a perfect 6-0 at home, winning by an average of 23.0 ppg!
Philadelphia is 23-12 ATS in non-conference games over the last 2 seasons, while the Nuggets are a horrible 3-11 ATS in their last 14 vs. NBA Atlantic. BET THE 76ERS!
