The teams met last month in Sacramento and it was a very close basketball betting contest that the Kings pulled out 102-100. Denver has won six of the last 10 in this series but Sacramento is 5-4-1 against the basketball betting odds.
NBA betting has seen Denver win four of their last five at home against the Kings but the Nuggets are just 2-3 against the spread in those games. You would think with these two offenses that the games would be high scoring and go over in NBA betting but that has not been the case. Five of the last six meetings have gone under the NBA betting total. Recent trends may indeed point to a low scoring game. Sacramento has not scored 100 or more points in nine of the last 10 games, including the last six.
This NBA betting matchup is the final one of the season between the two teams. Both of the previous games were in Sacramento and the Kings won both. It should be noted that the Nuggets played without Carmelo Anthony in the last loss. He has been leading the Nuggets in scoring and has been right with LeBron James for the overall NBA scoring lead.
Sacramento has played well against the Northwest Division. They are 5-1-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. the Northwest. Sacramento had good road numbers to start the season but they have struggled lately, going 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. In fact, the Kings are really struggling everywhere in NBA betting.
