The Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets are playing for the second time in as many nights with the Nuggets taking the 128-110 doubles top one game. It was the Kings’ third loss in a row in a forgettable streak for Sacramento. Meanwhile, the Nuggets are on a four-game winning streak and have won six of their last seven as they slowly but surely continue to climb the Western Conference rankings.
Will the newly acquired Domantas Sabonis finally turn this ship around or will the Kings be defeated by the Nuggets for the second night in a row? Here are the odds for this Western Conference match, courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 237.5 (Above -110/Under -110)
The Kings are having another bad season, thanks in large part to their pathetic defense. They ranked 29th in the NBA and allowed teams to average 115.1 points per game. Nuggets ranked 12th and allowed the opponent 107.8 PPG for reference. The Kings are also among the worst defensive rebounding teams in the league, placing them 25th for steals on defense and 26th for forced reverses. The Kings are also on a 3-game losing streak to ATS.
On the other hand, the Nuggets have played six of their last seven games and have beaten the Kings in the last 24 hours. Obviously, this allows Sacramento limited time to adjust and I’m not sure they could even if they wanted to with this roster. Kings lost 18 in that game, so 7.5 is like a gift – a gift I won’t give up.
Pick: Denver Nuggets -7.5 (-110)
