Sacramento Kings vs New York Knicks betting tips and predictions for Thursday’s NBA game on TNT. New York looks to start another win streak as they hit the road and face the Sacramento Kings. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Sacramento Kings

Sacramento KingsSacramento’s been one of the most consistent teams since the all-star break winning 6 of their last 7 games which has elevated them all the way up to 2nd in the West standings, something that not a lot of people saw coming before the season started. They’re coming off another impressive home win over New Orleans 123-108. De’Aaron Fox missed the game with a hamstring injury, that could very well happen once again tonight as he’s still not 100% recovered.

When Fox doesn’t play Sacramento is only 3-4 SU this season, against a guard heavy team like the Knicks there could be issues tonight. Playing vs Eastern Conference teams has been somewhat of a struggle lately with just 1 of 7 games with the Kings covering the spread.

New York Knicks

New York KnicksA lot of people we’re let down by the Knicks in their last game as they lost at home to the Charlotte Hornets of all teams. New York entered the game as double-digit favorites and on a 9-game win streak, but in a bizarre fashion they let that game slip in front of a packed Madison Square Garden.

Now they hit the road, where they’ve actually been better than at home this season. In 32 games they have a 22-10 ATS record to go along with 20 wins and just 12 losses. To top it off they also might get Jalen Brunson back into the line-up after a couple of games missed due to a foot injury. The offense should get a big boost if he plays, he is one of 3 Knick players averaging over 20 points this season.

It’s a tricky game to predict, especially without knowing if Fox will play for Sacramento. Assuming he does not then I fancy the Knicks here, they’ve done enough on the road to warrant me backing them as 4-point underdogs here.

Sacramento Kings vs New York Knicks Predictions & Odds

The Kings rank 9th in the NBA in pace when playing at home, while having the highest offensive rating at 122.3. So their formula for winning is pretty clear, they like to speed things up and just outscore their opponents. New York is in a similar boat, at least when it comes to their offensive rating in road games where they rank 3rd in the NBA. If the Kings decide to run here, the Knicks will have enough to match that firepower.

The total has gone over in 4 of the last 6 for New York and in 5 straight vs Western Conference opponents. Sacramento is 21-11-1 on the O/U in home games this season, with 10 of their last 13 overall cashing on that bet. Even without a healthy Fox they managed 123 points against the New Orleans Pelicans. I think we’re in for a fast game here, with not a lot of defense to be seen. Back the points with confidence.
