Two games headline our NBA Picks for Saturday action, including the Denver Nuggets at Cleveland Cavaliers matchup and the Utah Jazz vs. the Sacramento Kings at the Sleep Train Arena.
Find out below, which side of the NBA odds that we are on for both of these games.
Two Key Games For
Denver Nuggets at Cleveland
red-hot Denver Nuggets (32-18 SU, 13-12 ATS away) are -5 ½ point favorites on
the road this evening, as they will attempt to extend their current winning
streak to nine games when they meet up with the Cleveland Cavaliers (16-34 SU,
9-13 ATS away) at the Quicken Loans Arena.
Nuggets have covered the point spread in four of their last five meetings
versus the Cavaliers when the game is being played in Cleveland. Furthermore,
Denver is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games versus the Central Division.
Cleveland has been pretty good lately covering the point spread on their home
floor. In fact, the Cavaliers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games played at
the Quicken Loans Arena. Also, Cleveland is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games
overall and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games played on a Saturday.
is just 10-15 SU on the road this year, but Cleveland is only 9-13 in 22 games
played at home. My point is, while
Denver is vulnerable when playing away from the Pepsi Center, it won’t matter
tonight, because the Cavaliers are one of the worst teams in the NBA.
Nuggets will crush the Cavaliers in this contest to earn the win and point
spread cover, while also pushing their wining streak to nine games.
NBA Picks: Nuggets -5 ½
Utah Jazz at Sacramento
Utah Jazz (28-23 SU, 9-16-1 ATS away) are +1 ½ point road underdogs tonight
against the Sacramento Kings (17-33 SU, 8-15-1 ATS home), which doesn’t make a
whole of sense from the way I’m viewing this game.
the Jazz are 0-5 ATS in their last five matchups when facing a team with a
losing record and yes, they are just 1-5 in their last six versus Western
Conference opponents, but Utah is a much better team than Sacramento regardless
of where this game is being played.
Kings, besides owning a poor SU record, have also been awful against the spread
as of late. They are 0-6-1 ATS in their last seven games played at home and
3-13-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall.
Sacramento is a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four matchups against the Jazz.
understand that Utah is a better team when playing at home opposed to the road,
but Sacramento is a bad team regardless of the location.
Utah and the +1 1/2 points for your NBA picks, as they will easily win this game outright.
