Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Sacramento. As of Monday morning, 70 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Kings.

Injury Report: Sacramento power forward Harry Giles is recovering from surgery on both knees and expected to miss the rest of the season. Frank Mason is out until late February with a heel injury. For the Hornets, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is probable to play tonight despite a foot strain. Cody Zeller is targeting an early February return from surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

Who the Trends Like: Sacramento is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Charlotte. 

Who We Like: Charlotte has been going through some drama recently, with the report that Kemba Walker is available in a trade. Making matters worse, a subsequent report said Walker wasn't even notified by the franchise and found out through social media. The Hornets lost their first game since the news by a count of 106-105 to the Heat despite being favored and playing a Miami team that was on a back-to-back. Things aren't great right now. Expect the doldrums to continue tonight. Although Charlotte will probably win, I expect it to be a team going through the motions. Sacramento has shown competitiveness in at least a few of its recent games despite being on a seven-game losing skid. This should be another close one if my estimation is correct.
