The Denver Nuggets can play like a monster when they are at home, but BetAnySports NBA customers know that when they go out on the road, it is a different story. On Tuesday night they will visit the Sacramento Kings, who may not be in town very long, in an NBA game that is set to tip off at 10:05 PM ET at the Sleep Train Arena.
Here is the matchup:
Denver Nuggets (39-22 SU, 36-25 ATS) at Sacramento Kings (21-40 SU, 26-33 ATS)
Tuesday, March 5 – 10:05 PM ET
Sleep Train Arena, Sacramento
There have been lawsuits designed to block the construction of a new arena in Seattle, which have been dismissed. Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA guard, has desperately been trying to keep the Kings from moving to Seattle, where they would become the SuperSonics, borrowing from the former franchise that moved to Oklahoma City. A new group has emerged that wants to buy the team and keep it where it is. The city is coordinating guaranteed sponsorship commitments in order to promote the area’s viability. Stay Tuned.
In the pro basketball betting odds that have been posted on this game, the Nuggets are laying points on the road:
Denver Nuggets -4.5
Sacramento Kings +4.5
Over 224.5 Points -110
Under 224.5 Points -110
Nuggets win game -170
Kings win game +150
Denver is 20-9 against the pointspread when they play at the Pepsi Center. But when they are the visitor they have not met with as much success – at all. In fact, the Nuggets are just 13-19 SU and 16-16 ATS as the road club.
But take note of the total. Denver, which is priced at +1700 to win the Western Conference in the NBA futures odds at BetAnySports, has an astonishing record when the total is posted at 210 or higher. In those games, they are 13-0 SU and 12-1 ATS. In other words, against teams that lack defense, or who like to play at an accelerated pace, they can beat those clubs at their own game.
In this particular case, it is the Kings’ lack of defense that is most likely to lead to their downfall. In four of the last six games, they have allowed the opponent to shoot 50% or better from the floor. When they traveled to San Antonio on Friday they permitted the Spurs to hit a whopping 60.7% in a 130-102 defeat. Then they took those frustrations out on the Charlotte Bobcats two nights ago, holding the offensively-challenged Bobcats to just 36% in a 119-83 win.
These teams have met twice this season, and neither time has it been a contest. Denver has won by scores of 122-97 and 121-93, shooting 53.4% in the process (42.9% from downtown). Both clubs have also been trending toward the “over.” Denver has gone over in seven of its last ten games and has played 21 overs in 32 road games, while Sacramento has had nine overs in its last eleven ballgames.
