With the Kings banged-up against the Jazz and planning to rest some starters, their offense might suffer but bettors don't have to. Take advantage when making your NBA picks.

Free NBA Pick: Under 202Best Line Offered: 5Dimes

Coach Dave Joerger and the Kings announced the other day that they are basically tanking the rest of the season, as they plan on resting at least two veterans every game. That might not mean much of a change to their play, other than more young guys getting minutes, but it could hurt their offense against strong defensive teams.

The Jazz are one of those teams, and with Utah losing 15 of their last 20 games, they need to win tonight to stay within striking distance of the playoffs.

That being said, for my NBA picks I think this one goes under the total posted on the NBA odds board. Utah is holding teams to 101.9 points per game this season, while Sacramento is averaging only 97.7 points per game. The Kings' offense is probably the worst in the NBA right now.

Plus, Utah has been a great team to bet the under. The Jazz have cashed the under in 10 of their last 14 games overall and in four of their last six against conference opponents on the road.
