The Odds: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Kings are 7-point home underdogs versus the Nuggets, who opened as 8.5-point road favorites. The total, meanwhile, opened at 206.5 but jumped a half-point to 207.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Public Betting: As of Monday morning, 60% of betting tickets are currently on the Nuggets to cover.

Injury Report: The most significant injury affecting tonight's game is Paul Millsap, who is doubtful for Denver due to a wrist injury. On the other side, Buddy Hield is questionable for Sacramento due to an ankle injury, while Vince Carter is questionable due to an illness. Harry Giles is out with a knee ailment.

OUR PREDICTION: The Nuggets are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games versus an opponent with a losing record. They're also 1-4 against the number in their last five games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. They're 1-4 against the spread in their last five games after allowing more than 125 points in their previous game, are 1-6 at the betting window in their last seven road games, and are winless at 0-4 at the betting window in their last four games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400.
