BETTING ANALYSIS:

Vegas keeps giving the Sacramento Kings the benefit of the doubt….and bettors continue to reap the rewards. 10 of Sacramento’s last 11 matches have ended up with the Kings opponent outperforming the Vegas projected line AND going over the projected scoring total. Tonight I expect this phenomenon to continue.

In their previous 2 match-ups this season, Portland has beaten Sacramento by an average margin of 16 points. Even though Sacramento wasn’t at full strength for the first of those games, and Blazers secondary star CJ McCollum was still suiting up for the team at that time, I still see the Portland taking care of business tonight.

Both teams coming off a back-to-back absolutely favors Portland as they have been unfazed by the grueling schedule going 4-0 against the spread this season on 0 nights rest. Sacramento is coming off a tough win against a depleted Lakers squad where a lot of the Kings key players logged heavy minutes (Hield-42, Barnes -38, Fox-36).

Maybe I’m still high off the fumes of Dodgecoin and Gamestop, but I feel like when money making trends and opportunities like this present themselves best to try and ride the wave and see how far it goes.
