BookMaker has the Denver Nuggets listed as 8 point favorites over the Sacramento Kings. The Denver Nuggets enter this game with a record of 38-18 and have lost three of their last five games, but are coming off a home win on Monday against the Miami Heat by a score of 103-87 which ended their three-game losing streak.  The Sacramento Kings enter this game with a record of 30-26 and have won four of their last five games including two wins in a row and are coming off a home win on Sunday against the Phoenix Suns by a score of 117-104. Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Sacramento Kings.

Sacramento Kings

The Kings are 30-26 overall and 33-22-1 ATS.  The Sacramento Kings are a borderline playoff team this season, but they lack the talent necessary to match up against the best teams in the conference. They are currently in 8th place in the Western Conference and trail the Golden State Warriors by 10.5 games for the top spot in the conference. Sacramento is 33-22-1 ATS overall, 16-13 ATS after a win, 12-14 ATS on the road and 20-20-1 ATS as an underdog.

Sacramento is averaging 113.32 points per game which ranks 9th in the NBA. They are averaging 10.91 offensive rebounds per game which ranks 10th in the NBA. They are averaging 25.57 assists per game which ranks 9th in the NBA.

Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets are 38-18 overall and 30-26 ATS.  The Denver Nuggets have been the surprise of the NBA, but have lost three of their last five games. They are currently in 2nd place in the Western Conference and trail the Golden State Warriors by 2.5 games for the top spot in the conference. Denver is 30-26 ATS overall, 22-15 ATS after a win, 20-8 ATS at home and 22-18 ATS as a favorite.

Nikola Jokic leads the team in scoring, assists, rebounds and steals with 1,122 points, 422 assists, 577 rebounds and 78 steals. Mason Plumlee leads the team in blocks with 52.

Denver gets the win and cover at home

Even though the Kings are playing better ball right now after winning four of their last five than the Nuggets who have lost three of their last five games Denver is still the better team. Denver is 7-3 ATS in their last ten match-ups with Sacramento while outscoring the Kings by an average of 110.7 to 103.6 in those games. The Nuggets are also 3-0 in their last three meetings with the Kings while outscoring Sacramento by an average of 124.33 to 109.67 in those contests. I look for those trends to continue with a Nuggets win and cover at home over the Kings on Wednesday. Make sure to bet this match-up on BookMaker.
