The Sacramento Kings travel to Orlando to take on the Magic Sunday night and Larry Cook says that the Kings will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting at Orlando –6.5, but the line has since risen to Orlando –7.
Cook writes: Sacramento is really coming on strong after making their big trade with Atlanta. The Kings have now won all 3 of their games after the All-Star Break, including a pair of road wins at Portland and Charlotte. This team has not given up on their season and they feel that with a big run to end the year, they can make one final playoff push. Sacramento is 18-6 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points this season. The Kings are 24-12 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points this season. You are looking at the best team in the league when playing the role of the underdog. Bet Sacramento on the road.
