The Sacramento Kings travel to Charlotte to take on the Bobcats Friday night and Bill Young says that the Kings will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting at Sacramento –2, but the line has since dropped to Sacramento –1.

Young writes: Sacramento will run away with this one tonight. The Charlotte Bobcats are reeling, losing 8 out of their last 9 games overall. The Kings have won both games after the All-Star break with a great road win at Portland and a dominant home win over Atlanta, both by double-digits. Charlotte scored just 65 points in a 20-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs their last time out. Charlotte is 1-10 ATS when playing 6 or less games in 14 days this season. The Kings own a 14-point win over Charlotte in their only meeting of the season. You can expect another double-digit blood bath here when the Kings get done with the Bobcats. Take Sacramento and lay the points.

Public betting information currently shows that of the 1,904 wagers placed on tonight’s game, 69% of bettors like the Kings -1. Accuscore disagrees with the public and has the Bobcats as a 52% favorite.
