Kings vs. Spurs Prediction
Will the Kings cover as a double-digit road underdog tonight when they visit the Spurs at 8:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Spurs are now 14.5-point home favorites tonight versus the Kings after opening as a 16-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 198.5 but has been bet up to 200.
Sacramento is in the midst of a five-game losing streak, with losses against the Hornets, Timberwolves, Nets and Jazz at home, and a 108-96 defeat at Denver on Monday night. The Kings are just 4-6 in their last 10 games and 5-5 against the spread, although they are 31-30 ATS on the season.
The Spurs have won eight consecutive games and nine of their last 10. In their last game, a 112-110 win over the Rockets, they failed to cover as a 3.5-point home favorite and are now 0-4 at the betting window over their last four games. They last covered as a 12-point favorite at the Lakers in a 119-98 win on February 26.
OUR PREDICTION: The Kings have covered in five of their last six games at San Antonio and are 4-1 in their last five games when playing a team with a winning record. The Spurs, meanwhile, have dropped four of their last five games at the betting window when playing at home and are 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games versus a team with a road winning percentage of less than .400. Given their dramatic win over Houston on Monday night, this is a pure letdown spot for San Antonio.
