Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Oklahoma City. As of Monday afternoon, 55 percent of public bets have been placed on the Thunder.

Injury Report: Kings center Georgios Papagiannis has missed the last three games with an illness and is questionable tonight. Frank Mason III is out until late February with a heel injury. Harry Giles had surgery on both knees and is targeting an early February return. For the Thunder, Andre Roberson has been out of action with patellar tendinitis and is questionable tonight.

Who the Trends Like: Sacramento is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 meetings. The under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Oklahoma City and 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall.

Who We Like: The Thunder ended their three-game losing skid with a 101-91 victory at the Hornets their last game, but this team is inconsistent enough to revert back to form tonight despite being a far more talented team. Sacramento gets blown out as often as any team in the NBA, but I have a hunch it will be motivated for this game against a quality opponent that still feels vulnerable. I don't expect a Kings win or anything, but I'm taking them to stay within the number.
