Pick: Kings +3

While the rest of the NBA world is focusing on Kawhi Leonard’s return to San Antonio and the red hot Rockets visiting the Bay Area to take on the Warriors, we’re on the third game on the NBA card tonight and backing Sacramento Kings as a three-point home pup against the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets burned us on Tuesday failing to cover the double-digit spread against the Knicks at home, and we’re on the other side of this Nuggets game. We liked Denver on Tuesday due to its home court advantage, one of the best in the NBA. But away from home, the Nuggets are 7-10 ATS and Sacramento has been one of the biggest overachievers in the first half. The Kings are 21-15-1 ATS which is the third best mark against the number in the association. Furthermore, Sacramento has the most covers as a home underdog at 10-5-1 ATS in said spot. The Kings have the advantage in the backcourt behind Buddy Hield, De’Aaron Fox and Bogdan Bogdanovic and we’re on them to cover the three tonight.
