Kings out of the playoffs

The Sacramento Kings are coming off a 119-108 loss at Houston last night to be officially eliminated form the playoffs. They have lost and failed to cover in three of their last four. The Kings are 37-39 on the season, 14-24 on the road, 43-32-1 against the spread and 38-37-1 with the over.

The Kings are putting up 114.1 points per game on offense while shooting 46.3 percent from the field. Defensively, Sacramento is giving up 114.8 points per game while opponents shoot 46.2 percent from the floor. Buddy Hield is leading the team with 20.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game while De’Aaron Fox is adding 17.6 points and 7.3 assists per contest.

Spurs fighting for seeding

San Antonio is coming off a 116-110 win at home over the Cavs on Thursday. They have won two of their last three while failing to cover in two straight. The Spurs are seventh in the West right now, tied with the Thunder for the final two spots. San Antonio is 44-32 overall, 30-8 at home, 41-33-2 against the spread and 42-33-1 with the over.

The Spurs are putting up 111.9 points per game on offense while shooting 47.8 percent from the floor. Defensively, San Antonio is giving up 110.3 points per game while opponents shoot 46.3 percent against them. DeMar DeRozan is leading the team with 21.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game while LaMarcus Aldridge is adding 21.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Sacramento

The Kings are 35-17 against the spread in their last 52 games following a loss and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games on no rest.

San Antonio

The Spurs are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four conference games and 34-16 ATS in their last 50 home games.

Prediction:

The Kings have won and covered in both meetings with the Spurs this season, but both games were in Sacramento. Coming off a deflating loss last night to end their playoff hopes, I don’t see the Kings having a lot of spring in their step today. The Spurs are still trying to avoid an opening series with Golden State and earn the seven seed, so I think San Antonio will be very business-like tonight.

NBA Prediction: San Antonio Spurs -9.5
