NBA Picks - Sacramento Kings vs Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn Nets Roster

Sunday, November 27, 2016 3:18 PM GMT

Sacramento and Brooklyn have two of the worst defenses in the NBA and yet there is a NBA Odds total that is higher than theirs tonight of 217 ½. Slam the over on the NBA betting lines for this one until it starts to move higher. 

Sacramento Kings vs Brooklyn Nets

All the way on the other end of the spectrum tonight is the Kings and Nets. I'm pretty sure without Jeremy Lin there are a few D-League teams that could give the Nets a run for their money and Lin will be out once again on Sunday.

However, with NBA Odds of only 217 points for the total on this one, the over is a fine value heading into the end of the week. While the Bucks and Magic have two strong defenses, the Kings and Nets do not. They are both allowing more than 110 points per 100 possessions and the Nets happen to be playing at the fastest pace of any team in the league.

That is what surprised me about this total. Both Sacramento and Brooklyn have defenses that are just as bad as Portland, yet their total with the Rockets is 223 points. This is despite the Nets playing faster than Houston, so even though Sacramento plays slow, they will be forced to pick up the pace on the road and their defense is going to allow Brooklyn to score somewhere between 105 and 110 points. Take the over before
