NBA Odds for Friday, March 1, 2024

Sacramento Kings at Minnesota Timberwolves

SAC @ MIN Odds

  • Opening Point-Spread: Timberwolves -6
  • Opening Money-Line: Timberwolves -245
  • Opening Total: 224.5
  • Time: 8:00 p.m. ET

The Timberwolves are hanging onto a one-game lead over the Thunder for first place in the Northwest Division, while the defending champion Nuggets sit 1.5 games out of the top spot.

Minnesota hosts Sacramento tonight, who is coming off back-to-back losses to the two teams in the NBA Finals last season, Miami and Denver.

The Kings hope to get guard De'Aaron Fox back in the lineup after missing Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets with a left knee contusion.

Minnesota rallied past Memphis on Wednesday, 110-101, but failed to cash as 13.5-point home favorites. That marked the third ATS loss in the last four games for the Wolves, who are 3-6 ATS in the past nine games at Target Center.

The two teams have split a pair of meetings this season with the road squad winning each time. Sacramento won at Minnesota, 124-111 in November as the away team is 5-0 in the last five matchups.

Milwaukee Bucks at Chicago Bulls

MIL @ CHI Odds

  • Opening Point-Spread: Bucks -4
  • Opening Money-Line: Bucks -180
  • Opening Total: 221.5
  • Time: 10:00 p.m. ET

The Bulls look to knock off their second straight Central Division rival after rallying past the Cavaliers in overtime, 132-123 on Wednesday as 5.5-point underdogs. 

DeMar DeRozan overcame a rough shooting night to score 35 points with nearly half his points coming from the free throw line (17).

The Bucks head to the Windy City with no rest after cruising past the hapless Hornets, 111-99 as 11.5-point favorites on Thursday.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led Milwaukee with 24 points as the Bucks have won four straight games to pull into a first-place tie with Cleveland.

Milwaukee is riding an incredible 12-1-1 run to the Under in the last 14 games, while limiting foes to less than 100 points in five of the past eight contests.

Chicago has covered the spread in all three matchups with Milwaukee this season as a sizable underdog. The Bucks are 2-1 against the Bulls with the lone Chicago win coming in overtime, 120-113 in late November. 

Milwaukee won the most recent meeting, 133-129 in overtime in mid-December, but Chicago cashed as 11.5-point underdogs.

The Bucks have won seven of nine games this season with no rest, but we'll see if Antetokounmpo or Damian Lillard sit out on the second of the back-to-back.
