Today’s Free Play: Philadelphia at Denver

Line -14

A strong line in the NFL and even NBA tends to suck lots of money on the favorites and into the backroom of sportsbooks. A hot team shoud stay hot with ease correct? That’s the thinking that leads to trouble. Once in awhile though there are opportunities that should be pounced on even on large spreads.

Tonights matchup for Denver I believe is one of those. Their high tempo offense and opportunisitic transition defense leads to easy run out baskets. Philadelphia is coming off a beat down last night in Los Angeles. With Denver already on their own double digit win streak, they should come out firing early and often.

This is one of those games that can get out of hand right out the gate, and I believe it will. By halftime Denver should be up well past the current line of 14. You may think that means difficulties for a second half lull and backdoor cover. That shouldn’t be an issue. The tank is well past E for the 76ers and there will not be a second half push. Expect Doug Collins to have his bench emptied early as they prepare for back to back road games Sunday and Monday at Sacramento and Utah.
