Sacramento Kings vs Phoenix Suns betting tips and predictions for Monday’s NBA game at Golden 1 Center. The Suns are looking to end a 3-game road losing streak as they travel to face the Sacramento Kings. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
The Kings are looking more and more like the Cleveland Cavaliers of the Western Conference. Following a 7-game win streak, they’ve now dropped two in a row and are in danger of losing yet another game against one of the title favorites Phoenix.
They’ve won only twice in the last 6 meetings with the Suns, so the likes of De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis will have to be on top of their game to get a result here. Sacramento is playing above expectations this season, they’ve covered in 5 games in a row from their own conference and in 6 in a row from their own division. As far as injuries go, no team in the NBA is in better shape than Sacramento, and they are using that to their advantage.
Phoenix is still missing Chris Paul, Jae Crowder and Cameron Johnson which has had a negative impact on their road form. Over their last 10 games away from home they have only 2 wins, but the good news is they face a Kings side they’ve beaten in 4 of the last 5 games played in Sacramento. They are on a 4-game win streak following a tight 113-112 win over Utah the other night, behind 29 points and 21 rebounds by Deandre Ayton. He goes up against Sabonis tonight which could mean less productivity for the big man, so other players like Cam Payne and Devin booker will have to step up their production here. The Suns are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games against Western Conference teams.
I have to go with the Kings here, simply because of the Suns road woes. They are losing games against much worse teams than the Kings on the road, Sacramento needs a good performance here to forget about their last two losses. Give me the Kings at home to cover.
Sacramento Kings vs Phoenix Suns Predictions & Odds
Despite the last 4 Suns games all going under the total, I feel like today’s game has the potential to be a high scoring one. The Kings and Suns have averaged 229.6 points per game over the 3 most recent meetings, and with the Kings playing the 8th fastest tempo in the NBA right now they’ll be looking to push the pace playing at home.
These teams are actually tied in 3rd place for the best offensive rating in the NBA scoring 113.4 points per 100 possessions this season, and the last time they played each other in Sacramento we had a final score of 127-124 in favor of the Kings. The total has gone over in 5 of 9 Kings home games this year, expect fireworks from both teams on the offensive end here. Let’s back to the points.
