5% NBA Total Mismatch

13 games in the NBA on Wednesday and Andrew’s ready to cash in for himself and his clients with his 5% ‘Total Mismatch’ supporting a favorite with a line that is nowhere near what it should be! Andrew ended the playoff bubble on a great ATS run last season and expects nothing to change as this season begins! DON’T MISS THIS 5% WINNER!

Both of these teams are youthful, full of energy and pace, they have plenty of guys that can take it to the hoop on their own and beat their man to the basket, but they are also unselfish and are more than willing to make the extra pass to find the best shot. Quotes out of the Denver locker room have been all about playing small ball, play quick and shooters not hesitating to pull the trigger, I expect both the Kings and the Nuggets have plenty of guard talent including Jamal Murray that had an outstanding bubble performance and will certainly come in to this season with an extreme level of confidence. Both teams have guards that will get it done but I expect the bigs to get it done as well. Both teams have athletic post-players that can catch the ball outside the key and take it to the hoop in their own.

The last time the Kings and Nuggets met they combined for 235 points going over the posted today

I usually don’t take much stock into preseason but the Kings have been playing a ridiculous pace, the pace they played at when they had a ton of success scoring the basketball 2 years ago, they got away from it last year however but it looks like they’ll be going back to that. The Nuggets, on the other hand, are coming off an offseason in which they lost their best defender in Free Agency Jerami Grant, Michael Porter Jr will be taking over his starting role, Michael Porter Jr is an outstanding offensive player but he’s really struggled defensively in his career.

This game is going to be played at a quick pace, both teams will STRUGGLE to keep the basketball out of their net.
