Sacramento to Light Up San Antonio

The Sacramento Kings head to San Antonio as they continue their seven-game road trip. The NBA betting lines favor them quite sizably, as the Spurs have been atrocious. The Kings are third in the West right now and are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five games versus the Spurs. On paper, this should be easy for Sacramento. But San Antonio may resist.

Let’s check the latest NBA news, stats, injury report and NBA lines for Kings vs Spurs. We’ve got plenty of NBA picks for you to consider.

Kings Finally Relevant

The Kings are legit. Don’t doubt it this time now. Sacramento is not just a winning team; it’s doing it in style. The NBA’s most surprising team is scoring the most points per game (119.5), thanks mainly to its new dynamic duo of Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox. The two are combining to score 42.6 points and 13.2 assists per evening.

Kings fans have plenty of reason to be excited and this team may just be as fun as the early 2000s when the franchise was last relevant. And even if Sacramento’s defense (21st in the NBA) leaves room for improvement, the team is scoring enough to win and cover games.

Sacramento has the fourth-best record on the spread (56.3% cover rate), is 16-9-1 ATS versus its conference and 16-7 against teams below .500. That means the Kings are a reliable team to bet online.

Spurs Have Their Own Means

On the flip side are the San Antonio Spurs. San Antonio is obviously playing for the future. The Spurs have lost six straight and are just 9-19 in their own court. On top of that, several players like Josh Richardson (knee) and Devin Vassell (knee) are either banged up or on the shelf.

The Spurs are constantly underdogs. At home, the team is 12-11 ATS, which is just shy of being a winning team. However, while they remain a bottom-five NBA outfit, San Antonio has enough offense to surprise a less-than-ready team.

Gregg Popovich is still the coach and he can find ways to make favorites like Boston and the LA Clippers pay. Bettors can also look to garbage time for a chance of a backdoor cover. San Antonio’s bench scores the most points in the NBA (43.3), a point to contemplate in the sportsbook.

Kings vs Spurs Picks and Prediction

Typically, games go over the total when Sacramento is favored (16 of 28 games) and when San Antonio is the underdog at home (14 of 23). But 243½ points is a lot and these teams would have to be firing at over 50% consistently to score that many. So we’re betting against these lofty totals.

Sacramento is listed at -290 in our Vegas NBA lines. This means that if you wager $100 on the Kings, you have a chance to win $34. San Antonio is +240, offering a chance to win $240 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives San Antonio a 74.36% chance to win, with the Spurs at 29.41%
