Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin
De'Aaron Fox couldn't find his shot vs. the Nets on Friday, going 4-of-14 from the field for nine points. He didn't have much luck on defense either with D'Angelo Russell roasting him for 31 points. The second-year PG dished out six assists with three boards, one steal, one triple and three turnovers, but also missed both free throws. We saw a lot of lines like these during his rookie season, but this year they have been few and far between. We're not concerned and he's still hovering around the top-50 in standard leagues.
Toronto Raptors Fantasy Spin
Kawhi Leonard did not attend practice on Monday. He had a "scheduled maintenance checkup," but coach Nick Nurse said he expects him back with the team on Tuesday. We'll assume he's ready to roll for the game against the Kings after two straight games resting, but you can never be too sure when you're talking about Kawhi.
NBA Betting Trends
The Kings are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven road games and have failed to cover the number in each of their last seven games when playing on zero rest.
The Raptors are just 6-15 at the betting window in their last 21 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
The under has been highly profitable in this series, cashing in all seven of the previous seven meetings and is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Toronto. The under is also 6-2 in the Raptors’ last eight games versus Pacific opponents, is 26-9 in the Kings’ last 35 games versus Eastern Conference opponents and is 8-0 in Sacramento’s last eight games overall. The under is also 4-0 in the Kings’ last four road games and is 7-0 in their last seven games when facing an opponent with a winning record.
