Sacramento Kings vs San Antonio Spurs betting tips and predictions for Wednesday’s clash in the NBA. The Sacramento Kings will look to put the brakes on a 2-game losing streak as they take on the San Antonio Spurs. Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.
At first glance going 5-6 to start the season isn’t all that impressive, but when you see who the Sacramento Kings have faced in those 11 games, you could say they’ve done well so far. They faced off with West heavyweights Utah and Phoenix twice, the 9-1 Warriors once, Luka Doncic and Dallas once and the Charlotte Hornets. They have dropped two straight at home, on the road they are 3-2 so far and tonight’s game against the Spurs will be a welcome sight. Harrison Barnes is making a late case for another All-Star appearance averaging 22.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, I’m expecting big things from him tonight. Sacramento’s 3-poing shooting has really stood out this season, they rank 12th in field goal percentage from distance which is really impressive.
San Antonio Spurs
Losers of 3 games out of their last 4 outings, the Spurs have really struggled this season and for obvious reasons. They no longer have any stars on the team, it’s basically a bunch of youngsters trying to play team ball and develop chemistry as much as possible. They are doing relatively okay so far in certain aspects, as a team they rank 2nd in assists this season and have the 5th best defensive rating, but despite all those positives they are only 3-7 on the season. They do have a positive record against the Kings having beaten them 14 times in the last 16 meetings in San Antonio, but we have to remember those Spurs teams are a lot different compared to the one they have right now.
I’d argue Sacramento has a way higher incentive to win here, after all they are the ones who haven’t made the postseason in more than a decade and a half. They will have the two best players in Barnes and Fox here, so I’m expecting them to deliver. Back the Kings to cover.

Back Sacramento +1 Point Spread at -110 odds on bet365!
The total of 220.5 Points seems appropriate for this game if you ask me. After all these are the 8th and 3rd fastest teams in the NBA right now averaging 104.2 and 103.6 possessions per game. Spurs allow the 6th most points at home this season at 113 per game, 7 of their last 8 games at the AT&T Center have finished over the total. A offensively minded team like the Kings should definitely know how to take advantage. The last 10 meetings have averaged 221.6 points per game between them, I think with the way both teams have been playing so far this season we can expect a similar number. Their 3 meetings last season produced 217, 226 and 247 points. Let’s go with the over for tonight’s game.
