De’Aaron Fox is averaging 23.2 points and 5 rebounds, while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 17.9 points and 12.5 rebounds.

The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Kings are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The under is 4-1 in Nuggets last 5 overall. The over is 9-2-1 in Kings last 12 home games. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento and 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

Nikola Jokic is on a tear right now and has thrown himself back in the MVP race, and the Nuggets are the better team on paper. However, the Sacramento Kings continue to win games, and they keep getting disrespect from oddsmakers. The Kings are also at their best at home, where they win by an average of 5 points and shoot 51 percent from the field. Yes, the status of Sabonis would help the home team, but I'll still grab the points with an undervalued Kings squad.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
