The Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings face off for the fourth and final time in the regular season, and Denver is looking to avoid a dreaded sweep in the season series. 

The Nuggets are favored by 7.5 points at home, but I’d rather look to the prop market for my best bets in this game. 

This game features two of the best big men in the game – Nikola Jokic and Domantas Sabonis – and I think both players could be in line for big games on Wednesday.

Here’s how to wager on them in the prop market: 

Kings vs. Nuggets best NBA prop bets

  • Domantas Sabonis to record a triple-double
  • Nikola Jokic to record a triple-double

Domantas Sabonis to record a triple-double

Domantas Sabonis has been a triple-double machine, picking one up in six of his last seven games and eight of his last 10, giving him 21 triple-doubles on the season to lead the NBA. 

He’s also given Denver the business this season. Here’s a look at his numbers in the Kings’ three wins against the Nuggets: 

  • Dec. 2: 17 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists
  • Feb. 9: 17 points, 17 rebounds, 10 assists
  • Feb. 14: 20 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists

With De’Aaron Fox questionable for this game with a knee injury, Sabonis could find himself facilitating the offense even more than normal. He’s become too consistent with these triple-doubles to pass up at +150 odds. 

Nikola Jokic to record a triple-double

There’s hot, and then there is whatever Jokic has done over the last three games. 

The two-time MVP is averaging 27.3 points, 16.7 rebounds and 15.0 assists per game (yes you read that right) in his last three contests. 

Since being held to just 15 points on 6-for-17 shooting against the Kings back on Feb. 14, he’s been on an absolute heater, and I think he gets his revenge here. 

Jokic has easily picked up a triple-double in each of his last three games, and if he gets to 10 dimes this season, he’s pretty much a lock for a triple-double. 

In three games against Sacramento, Jokic has hit this prop just one time, but he posted a massive game – scoring 36 points while adding 13 rebounds and 14 assists. 

The odds aren’t the best, but until Jokic cools off, he’s a must bet to get a trip-dub at plus money.
