Point Spread: -2.50 | -107.00 Sacramento (Home)
I was a little skeptical about this Kings team off to such a hot start. Seeing them beat the Nuggets in Denver on the back end of a back to back, has me a little more optimistic. They play the second leg of this home and home versus Denver tonight in Sacramento, and this is a tough spot for the visitors.
After opening the season with a home win over Detroit, the Nuggets went out on the road and lost to an undermanned Oklahoma City Thunder. This is a team that struggles on the road at the best of times, going 14-27 away from Denver last season.
DeMarcus Cousins comes in averaging 22.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, and he's likely to own the boards here tonight at home. Nuggets PG Ty Lawson is just 1-7 from beyond the arc over the first three games, and Denver ranks near the bottom of the NBA in three-point shooting hitting just 24.3%.
