NBA Betting – Kings vs. Nuggets (Jan. 20)

Nuggets vs. Kings – Line analysis and Free pick

The Sacramento Kings (10-31 SU, 19-22 ATS, 21-20 O/U) and Denver Nuggets (27-15 SU, 23-18-1 ATS, 24-18 O/U) were both handed losses the last time they stepped on the court and will both be looking to bounce back tonight for BetUS NBA sports betting enthusiasts everywhere when they battle in the BetUS Sportsbook tonight at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

The Kings were defeated 129-122 by the Milwaukee Bucks as a 1-point favorite on Friday while the game’s combined score sailed OVER the posted O/U total of 206.

Veteran swingman John Salmons and all-star shooting guard Kevin Martin each scored a game-high 24 points while Jason Thompson added 22 points and Francisco Garcia, 20 points.

“For some odd reason we have a bad start when are at home. I don’t know exactly why,” said Thompson. “I think the guys are so comfortable with being here that they may not do the little things we do on the road.”

The Nuggets dropped their second straight game in their 115-113 loss to Houston on Monday, narrowly covering the spread for BetUS NBA sports betting backers as a 2.5-point underdog on Monday while the combined score went OVER the posted over/under total (192.5).

“We had great effort,” the coach added. “… There are losses that are good losses. Tonight was a good loss. We did a lot of things well.”

Often-erratic J.R. Smith led Denver with 24 points and seven rebounds while center Nene Hilario chipped in with 23 points and 12 rebounds in the team’s sixth consecutive game without leading scorer Carmelo Anthony.

“I tried to do what I do,” Smith said. “Just keep shooting, just try to get my rhythm.”

Here is a look at tonight’s key betting trends, followed by my in-depth analysis and NBA Free Pick:

Sacramento is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Denver
Sacramento is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games on the road
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Sacramento’s last 5 games
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Sacramento’s last 8 games when playing on the road against Denver
Denver is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games when playing Sacramento
Denver is 7-2 SU in its last 9 games at home
The total has gone OVER in 10 of Denver’s last 13 games
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Denver’s last 8 games when playing at home against Sacramento

NBA Odds

Sacramento Kings +8½ -110
Denver Nuggets -8½ -110

Over 205 -110
Under 205 -110

Analysis: While the Denver Nuggets are the correct pick to win tonight’s contest at home, I like the Sacramento Kings to cover the spread in a closer-than-expected loss. The Kings are still playing hard and should be able to stay within striking distance against the Nuggets, particularly without Anthony.
