I get the Brooklyn Nets have turned things around over the last week, and they’re at home with the rest advantage. The Sacramento Kings are on the end of a back to back coming over from Chicago, and they’re fresh off an emotional last second win. Still, we’re getting a free bucket with the better team. For some reason, oddsmakers continue to underrate these Kings while they keep winning and covering numbers. Give me the road dog.
