Denver Nuggets daily fantasy rotation
The entire Nuggets starting lineup is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Sixers. Point guard Jamal Mori (heel), shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (back/neck), small forward Michael Porter Jr. (knee), power forward Aaron Gordon (heel), and center Nikola Jokic (thigh) are all officially listed as questionable. .
Denver guard Julian Strawther left the game with a bruised right knee. Tuesday is the first of a five-game East Coast road trip for the Nuggets, so they may want to rest up a bit on Tuesday before the schedule begins. It's worth noting that Denver last played Sunday night at home against Indiana. The Nuggets won that game 117-109.
Philadelphia 76ers daily fantasy rotation
Sixers shooting guard D'Anthony Melton (back) and power forward Robert Covington (knee) have both been ruled out for Tuesday's home game against the Nuggets. Of the two, Melton will be the bigger loss as he is averaging 11.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 33 games for Philadelphia this year.
Philly guard Jaden Springer (ankle), junior Kenneth Lofton Jr. (shoulder) and Mo Bamba (knee) sat out Monday's home game against Houston and are all questionable for Tuesday's home game against Denver. Bamba is averaging 4.3 points and 3.0 rebounds per contest in 24 games of action this season.

Nuggets vs 76ers NBA Prediction:
I will follow the injury report before betting on this match. If Denver decides to rest some of their players, their coverage chances could be greatly reduced. Even if everyone plays, there are troubling numbers for the Nuggets this season. Denver is just 2-5-1 ATS as an underdog the rest of the year and 1-2 as an underdog this season. Sledding against the number of defending champions this year has been tough.
On the other hand, Philadelphia has been fantastic against this number all season. The 76ers are 5-3 ATS against non-conference opponents this season. The latter score is the second best figure in the league. And finally, the Sixers are 14-5 ATS as home favorites this year. No team has more ATS wins in that scenario than Philly this season. For all these reasons, I like the Sixers to win and cover at home.
