Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin

Buddy Hield torched the Thunder during a 119-116 win on Saturday, making 12-of-22 from the field for 34 points with five rebounds, four assists, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes. Score another one for the homecoming narrative, and Buddy has scored at least 25 points in each of his last three games against the Thunder. He had been in a mini-slump over his previous three games with three games under 43 FG%, but that's more about how ridiculously hot he's been in this calendar year than just a small bump in the road. Hield probably won't win Most Improved Player because of Pascal Siakam, but he's been one of the best fantasy values and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Minnesota Timberwolves Fantasy Spin

Karl-Anthony Towns (concussion) is listed as probable for Monday vs. the Kings. This comes from the official injury report and it means KAT has likely passed the concussion protocol after a two-game absence. Based on this update, his fantasy owners can pencil him in for Minnesota's 4-game week. If you picked up Taj Gibson, be prepared to move on.

NBA Betting Trends

Sacramento

The Kings are 20-8 against the spread in their last 28 games when playing an opponent with a losing record.

Minnesota

The Timberwolves are 5-0 against the number in their last five games overall.

Prediction

The Timberwolves have been highly profitable at the window of late (as evidence by their 5-0 ATS record over their last five games) but the Kings are a confident group and I love getting points with Sacramento right now. The Kings are also 5-0 against the number in their last five games, they’re 4-1 against the number in their last five road games and are 4-1 ATS in their last five games coming off a win. Plus, for as good ATS as the Timberwolves have been overall, they’re just 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven home games and 2-6 ATS in their last eight games following a loss.

Monday NBA Prediction: Sacramento Kings +3
