TOM STRYKER’S FREE NBA BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH
#502 PHILADELPHIA (-) over Denver at 7:05 PM EST
Back on January 26th, the 76ers (+10) visited the Rocky Mountains and dropped a 126-110 decision to the Nuggets. Off a pair of SU and ATS losses to Sacramento and Toronto in its last two games, Philadelphia will make sure it bounces back and grabs this payback win and cover.
A quick peek at the Team Stryker NBA Database shows that the Sixers have played well in this series notching a respectable 10-7 SU and 12-4-1 ATS mark in the last 17 meetings. In this run checking in off a straight up loss, Philly improves to a solid 9-2-1 ATS. The fact that this game is being played inside the Wells Fargo Center is huge for the 76ers too. At home, Philadelphia owns a lucrative 47-10 SU and 36-21 ATS record in its last 57 battles. In this setting matched up against an opponent that takes the court off a non-division battle, the Sixers cruise to a sweet 42-6 SU and 35-13 ATS including a juicy 37-4 SU and 32-9 ATS if their opponent holds a team won/loss percentage greater than .300.
If you want to fade Denver, the time to do it is when the Nuggets are on the road. Since the start of the 2017-18 season, Denver is just 29-39 SU and 27-39-2 ATS on a foreign court including a miserable 20-30 SU and 16-33-1 ATS if the Nuggets are rested. With those two parameters live and head coach Michael Malone’s boys fighting a non-division foe, this team trend drops to a head-scratching 16-24 SU and 11-28-1 ATS. Also, when battling a greater than .600 foe that checks in off a division war, Denver carries a pathetic 54-163 SU and 81-127-7 ATS record.
The 76ers believe they are in position to contend for an NBA title right now. A revenge victory over a solid Nuggets bunch would certainly raise a few eyebrows and help their cause. Take Philadelphia. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
