The Line: Milwaukee Bucks -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Sacramento Kings invade the Bradley Center to take on the Milwaukee Bucks tonight.
The Kings were able to put a halt to a three-game skid on Monday by beating the slumping Pelicans by 96-89 thanks to 23 points from DeMarcus Cousins and 22 points from Isaiah Thomas. Defensively, the Kings couldn't do much to stop Tyreke Evans who fell two assists shy of a triple-double, but they were able to keep a lid on Anthony Davis who scored just 13 points on four of 14 shooting which really kept the Pelicans at bay, especially with the lack of scoring options they have left. Sacramento now embark on a seven-game road trip which begins at Milwaukee tonight.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have lost four of their last six games but were able to avoid a third straight loss by beating the Jazz by 114-88 on Monday. Led by a season-high 31 points from Ersan Ilyasova, the Bucks shot a sizzling 57 percent from the field and had all their starters on the bench after dominating the third quarter by 40-19. With the win, Milwaukee improved to 12-47 on the season and 7-24 at home.
In ATS trends, the Kings are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five against the Eastern Conference, while the Bucks are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games following a win.
Head to head, the Kings are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Milwaukee and the underdog is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 overall.
Believe me, I won't be watching this game but I do think the Kings will grab the win on the road in this one.
