While both the Nuggets and Sixers rank towards the bottom of the league in offense, their defense is also pretty bad. The NBA basketball lines for tonight’s game at only 211 make for a great over NBA pick.

  Denver Nuggets vs Philadelphia 76ers  

 

Joel Embiid should be back and ready to play tonight after sitting out Saturday and his presence means a lot for this Sixers’ offense. They are averaging over two more points per 100 possessions with Embiid on the court and against this tough Nuggets’ frontline, Embiid should have a nice showing.

What’s great about this play is that even with two teams that rank in the top half of the league in pace, the NBA Odds for the total has this one at only 211 points. The Sixers’ offense might have a lot to do with that, but with Embiid and against the Nuggets’ soft defense, the over is also looking great for this one tonight.

Both teams are allowing 109 points per 100 possessions, which ties them for 22nd in the NBA. Both are allowing their opponents to shoot roughly a 51 eFG% and while both rank towards the bottom in offense, the old saying of “they pay their players too,” will come into play tonight. The offense should trump defense, so take the over for your NBA predictions.
