NBA Betting Trends
The Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Denver is 1-4-1 ATS in its last six Saturday games.
The Kings are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games. Sacramento is 4-0 ATS in its last four games versus the Western Conference.
Sacramento has been much better at home lately and returns after a road trip. Standing in its way, however, is a very good Denver team that has been up to par for the most part on the road. But in this situation, I like the home dogs as it has a pair of talented backcourt scorers in Hield and Bogdanovic that can keep the squad in any game. The Sacramento crowd is at its best against strong opponents and I think the energy will be there for a good enough performance today for the hosts to stay within the number and perhaps win outright.
