Basketball betting on Monday features Allen Iverson’s return to Philadelphia.
The 76ers signed Iverson last week and he will make his debut in this NBA betting matchup against Denver that can be seen on NBA-TV.
Basketball betting saw the Nuggets sweep the season series against Philadelphia a year ago after the teams split the previous four years. Going back to the 2005-2006 NBA betting season, the Nuggets have averaged 104.5 points in this series while the Sixers have averaged 101.4 points per game. Andre Iguodala averaged 17 points per game in the basketball betting games against Denver while Carmelo Anthony averaged 26 points per game to lead the Nuggets.
Just how much of an impact can Iverson make with Philadelphia? He practiced with them on Sunday and is expected to start in this game on Monday. He will be hoping to help them break a nine-game losing streak. Philadelphia is 29th in the league in attendance but they have sold out Monday’s game versus the Nuggets.
Overall, the Nuggets have won six of the last ten against Philadelphia and they are 6-4 against the basketball betting odds. Last season the Nuggets won 101-89 in Philadelphia.
