Spurs vs. Kings Prediction
The Spurs have played in a lot of low-scoring games recently but will the over cash tonight when they visit the Kings at 10:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Spurs are 5.5-point road favorites over the Kings while the over/under is sitting at 198 after opening at 195. San Antonio is 8-3 overall and a perfect 5-0 on the road, while Sacramento is 4-7 straight up and 2-2 at home.
SPURS KEY TRENDS: The Spurs are a near-perfect 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five road games and are 4-1-1 against the number in their last six games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game. That said, they’re just 2-6 at the betting window in their last eight games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 and are 1-3-1 against the number in their last five games versus Pacific opponents.
KINGS KEY TRENDS: The Kings are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six games versus Western Conference opponents and are 3-1-1 against the number in their last five home games. They’re also 4-0 at the betting window in their last four games playing on three or more days of rest and are 8-3-1 against the spread in their last 12 games versus an opponent that has a winning straight up record the day of the game.
OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in four straight Spurs games but the Kings rank 26th in the NBA in defensive efficiency so San Antonio should rack up plenty of points tonight. The over is also 5-2 in the Spurs’ last seven road games and has cashed in four of the Kings’ last five home games when playing against a team with a winning road record.
