Spurs vs. Kings Pick
Will the San Antonio Spurs be able to go on the road and pick up a comfortable win against the Sacramento Kings tonight at 10PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, San Antonio is favored on the road, as the Spurs are getting odds of -5.5 points against the Kings. The over/under total has been set at 199.5 points. San Antonio has won 10 straight meetings with Sacramento, going 6-3-1 against the spread in those 10 games. Tonight’s game takes place from the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California.
San Antonio has lost three of its last five games, all of the losses coming on the road. The Spurs are now 27-14 overall, 9-12 on the road and 21-18-2 against the spread. San Antonio is averaging 101.5 points per game on offense while allowing 98.3 on defense. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 15.9 points per game this season but has been battling injuries all season and is questionable for tonight with a shoulder injury. LaMarcus Aldridge is leading the team with 22.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
The Kings snapped a three-game losing streak following a 106-98 win over the Nuggets at home on Saturday. Sacramento is now 13-25 overall, 7-11 at home and 16-19-3 against the spread. The Kings are averaging just 97.6 points per game this season while allowing 106.2 per game. Zach Randolph is averaging 15.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game to lead the Kings this year, but he is questionable to play tonight due to a mouth injury. Buddy Hield is adding 12.4 points per contest.
The Spurs just don’t lose to the Kings and they tend to cover at Sacramento. They are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 trips to Sacramento and the road team is 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings between these two. San Antonio is also 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games against Pacific Division opponents. The public betting is split for this game, but I will stick with the Spurs tonight.
