The Line: San Antonio Spurs -13 -- Over/Under: 208 See the Latest Odds
The Sacramento Kings and the San Antonio Spurs do battle tonight at the AT&T Center.
The Kings have lost eight of their last 12 games overall but were able to snap a four-game skid with a hard-fought 104-101 win at Dallas on Thursday. DeMarcus Cousins dominated the game with 22 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, Rajon Rondo added 18 points and 12 assists while Marco Belinelli snapped out of his shooting funk with 16 points off the bench as the Kings snapped a 22-game losing streak in Dallas. With the win, Sacramento improve to 25-35 on the season and still have an outside chance to make the playoffs as they're just 4.5 games behind the Rockets who occupy the eighth spot in the Western Conference.

Meanwhile, the Spurs have won 13 of their last 14 games and will be aiming for their eighth straight win tonight after sneaking past the Pelicans in a 94-86 win on Thursday. Kawhi Leonard led the way with 30 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 26 points while Danny Green had 11 points and a clutch three late in the game as the Spurs shut out the Pelicans in the last 3:34 of the game to win and improve to 52-9 overall, second only to the history-making Warriors.
In ATS trends, the Kings are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall, while the Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 home games.
Head to head, the Kings are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in San Antonio but 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall.
These teams last met on Feb 24 and it was the Spurs who won by 108-92 at Sacramento and I can't see any reason why they can't win again by a similar margin. Take the Spurs to pull away in the second half and win by double digits.
