    Hey Dave,

    There is an NBA scheduling edge in the Brooklyn Denver game tonight. Brooklyn will be facing the most notoriously difficult traveling scenario in the NBA, having to head to Denver to close out the tail end of a back-to-back set. The Nets will be heading to Denver from Phoenix, where they played the Suns last night. They face a Nuggets squad that will have a two-day rest advantage.

    Nets are underrated

    Yes you have an edge taking Denver but itís still 50-50 if you win the bet

    The markets are going to see that scheduling set up a little too clearly to leave much advantage; it looks like Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will likely be a no-go for the Nets, which will lead to even more adjustment, so we are likely looking at some -11.5 or -12 when the morning trading gets going. I also wonder if Brooklyn might be a little more impervious to this setting than other teams because Kenny Atkinson has so many different cogs paling a key part in the rotation - the starters played less than half of the floor minutes at Phoenix, and having had two days off prior to that one they may have to deal with major fatigue issues. The Nets may not play well, but should at least have enough energy to play hard and compete.
