Why Bet on the Nuggets
The Denver Nuggets are not quite eliminated from the postseason, but it’s all but over for them. The loss to the Pelicans pretty much put an end to their chances. The Nuggets scored 109 points in their previous game, which was a win over the Memphis Grizzlies. Denver has been led in scoring by Danilo Gallinari, and Will Barton. The Nuggets are pouring in over 102 points per game, while allowing teams to score just shy of 105 per game. Denver is wrapping up their third straight season of under .500 basketball.
Why Bet on the Kings
The Sacramento Kings had more drama on Wednesday night with DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo getting late technicals, which included Rondo getting ejected. Cousins has been a monster in the paint for the Kings; averaging 27 points per game, while his buddy Rajon Rondo has been one of the top statistical point guards’ in the league dishing out 11 assists per game. The Kings reached 30 wins with their win on Wednesday over the Wizards. Sacramento is 30th out of 30 NBA teams on defense, allowing 109 points per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Sacramento Kings are a team that will use their late success into next season. Granted, the Kings keep the roster together, they are likely to get a new head coach, as George Karl appears to be all but gone. DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo are a great combination, when playing well and under control. Look for those two to find a way to beat the Nuggets, despite this game being played in Denver. The bet for this game is the Sacramento Kings -3.5 over the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.
