Will the Sacramento Kings take down to the Phoenix Suns tonight as a raw road favorite when the two teams meet at 10:00 p.m. ET?
(723) Sacramento Kings at (724) Phoenix Suns
Tuesday, April 3, 2018
TV: N/A, 10:00 p.m. ET
The Kings opened as 1-point road favorites but the line has climbed to 2.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 210 but has been bet down to 207.
As of this writing, 70% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Kings to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 70% of the betting tickets are on the under.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
The Suns have a slew of players banged up, including Devin Booker (hand), Elfrid Payton (knee) and TJ Warren (knee), who are all doubtful, as well as Tyson Chandler (neck), who is out. On the other side, Skal Labissiere (ankle) is questionable to suit up for the Kings.
These are two of the worst teams in the NBA so chances are if you’re reading this, you’re truly looking for value in tonight’s NBA slate. (Either that or you got hammered earlier in the night and are looking for a team, any team, to back that has a good chance of covering.) There are three reasons to back Sacramento tonight. The first is Phoenix’s injury issues, the second is that the Kings have been a great bet in this series, and the third is that the price on Sacramento is right. The Kings are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven trips to Phoenix, are 7-3 against the number in their last 10 games versus the Suns, and are a perfect 4-0 at the betting window in their last four road games. Meanwhile, the Suns are just 2-10 against the spread in their last 12 games coming off an ATS win their in previous game and have covered the number just once in their last six home games.
