It is a back-to-back basketball betting situation for both teams as Denver was home last night against Cleveland while Sacramento was at Golden State. Here is a look at his matchup between the Nuggets and Kings.
NBA betting has seen Denver win 7 of the last 10 against Sacramento straight up but they are just 5-5 against the basketball betting odds. The teams have already played once at Sacramento and that was just over a week ago and the Kings won 106-101 in NBA betting. The Kings have only won two of the last five at home against Denver but they have won the last two. Four of the last five in this basketball betting series have gone under the total.
The Nuggets have fallen on hard times a bit lately in NBA betting, mainly because of injuries. Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups have been hurt and Denver’s NBA betting results have been affected. When those two players are out the Nuggets can really struggle at times in NBA betting. Denver is not a very good road team anyway so if either Anthony or Billups are out, it could be a good spot for the Kings in NBA betting. Denver is still a team that can score which could mean a high scoring game on Saturday night against Sacramento.
Sacramento has not played very well either lately in NBA betting. The Kings were around the .500 mark just a couple of weeks ago but they have really struggled lately both straight up and against the NBA betting line. They are also not that great at home anymore either as they are just around the .500 mark against the NBA betting number. In fact, they are now just 10-9 at home against the basketball betting odds. They have lost five of their last six at home overall with the only win coming against the Nuggets. The Kings have been a team to bet over the total at home in NBA betting. 11 of their 19 home games have gone over the total with two ties. The Kings have an offense that is in the Top 10 in the league and a defense that is near the bottom of the league so it makes sense that their games do go over the NBA betting total.
