Jazz vs. Kings Prediction
Following a one-game suspension, DeMarcus Cousins will return to the Kings' lineup when they host the Jazz tonight at 6:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Sacramento is a 1.5-point home underdog versus Utah while the over/under currently sits at 205.5 points. While the side hasn't moved as of this writing, the total has been bet up a half point from the opening number of 205.
The Kings are in a downward spiral, losing eight of their last 10 games and failing to cover in seven of those 10 contests. But it's not as if the Jazz are playing much better, dropping seven of their last 10 and failing to cover at the betting window in eight of their last 10.
But getting back Cousins will help for tonight and the Jazz are just 4-13-2 against the spread in their last 19 games versus the Kings. They're also 2-9 against the number in their last 11 games overall, have failed to cover in seven of their last eight road games, and are just 1-9 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing on one day of rest.
The underdog, meanwhile, is 9-4-2 against the spread in the last 15 meetings between these two teams.
