Why should you bet on the Nuggets?

Denver is a tough place to play on the back end of a back-to-back; visiting teams come in tired from the night before as it is, but then you have to deal with the conditioning challenge of playing at high altitude. Given that the Nuggets did not play their best against the Pelicans, giving up too many points to former D-Leaguers such as Luke Babbitt and Tim Frazier, I think they’ll be ready to come home and take care of business against the Kings. Emmanuel Mudiay continues to develop as one of the more intriguing young point guards in the NBA.

Why should you put your money on Sacramento?

The Kings walloped the Washington Wizards earlier this week with primo effort from both DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo. If they can pull off the upset against the Heat, I think they will come to Denver bristling with momentum and confidence. The Kings have been playing somewhat better the last couple of weeks, and Denver does not have anyone inside to match the presence of Cousins. Rondo, a savvy veteran point guard, could eat Mudiay’s lunch — if he’s interested enough to make the effort.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I think that Sacramento will come into this game flat and tired, giving the Nuggets an opportunity to sock away a big home win. I’m picking Denver to win, 108-101.
