Sacramento Kings Betting

For the past two games, the Sacramento Kings lost by just the thinnest margins. It seems that they are starting to get things together but closing tight games has been the problem. Against the Suns, they had three players score above 20 points with Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Richaun Holes was subpar as compared to his recent performances with 14 points and just had 3 rebounds in almost 36 minutes of playing time. Against the Nuggets, they seem do not have the tools to guard Nikola Jokic and it will rely now on limiting the All-Star center’s supporting cast.

Denver Nuggets Betting

If not for the hiccup game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Christmas Day, it would have been a nine-game winning streak for the Nuggets if you include their last game against the Memphis Grizzlies. In that game with the Grizzlies, Nikola Jokic was back at his old self finishing with a triple-double of 31 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Will Baron chipped in with 20 points, seven assists and six rebounds. There were seven players that scored double figures and that included Jerami Grant and Michael Porter Jr coming off the bench. The matchups of Nuggets over the Kings just overwhelm them in most positions and their bench players are far more reliable.

Players to Watch: N. Jokic C 30 GP 30 GS 31.3 MIN 17.6 PTS 2.2 OR 7.8 DR 10 REB 6.8 AST 1 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO 3 PF 2.7 AST/TO 23.01 PER
