NBA Betting Trends

Sacramento

The Kings are 7-1 against the spread in the spread in their last 8 Monday games and 21-5 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 1 day of rest.

Brooklyn

The Nets have covered the spread in four straight home games and in five of their last six against Western Conference opponents.

Prediction:

The Kings have played well lately, but most of the wins have been at home and the road win was by two against a poor Detroit team. The Nets have been playing improved basketball for multiple weeks and have especially played well at home. I think the Nets will be able to slow down the Kings offense while continuing to ride Russell and Dinwiddie to an improved offensive output. Go with Brooklyn.

NBA Prediction: Brooklyn Nets -3
