Nuggets vs. Kings NBA Prediction:
This is a tough spot for Denver. The Nuggets just played at Phoenix on Friday night and triumphed 119-111 over a Suns team that didn’t have Devin Booker or Bradley Beal. They are being forced to play in Sacramento less than 24 hours later. Aaron Gordon and Jamal Murray seem unlikely to play, though both players are officially listed as questionable.
Sacramento is 25-18 ATS after a loss since the start of last season. That’s the third-best mark in the league over that stretch. What’s more, the Kings are 40-36-1 ATS in non-division games since the beginning of the 2022 campaign. In any other situation, I might like the Nuggets, but this will be their fifth game in seven days. I think that will be too much for a team that’s already shorthanded. I like the Kings to win and cover at home on Saturday night.
