The Sacramento Kings and Chicago Bulls square off Tuesday night at the United Center.
The Sacramento Kings have lost four of their last six games and begin a two-game road trip. On the season, the Kings are averaging 100.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting and are allowing 104.1 points on 45 percent shooting. DeMarcus Cousins is averaging 23.9 points and 12.4 rebounds while Ben McLemore is averaging 11.7 points and 3.1 rebounds. Carl Landry is grabbing 4.3 rebounds and Ramon Sessions is dishing 2.6 assists. The Sacramento Kings are shooting just 41.5 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from deep in their last five games. The Kings have scored 90 or less points in three straight games and have to fix that if they’re going to win consistently. Darren Collison is doubtful and Rudy Gay is questionable with injuries.

The Chicago Bulls have split their last 10 games and play their first home game of the month. On the season, the Bulls are averaging 101.9 points on 44.3 percent shooting and are allowing 99.3 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 20.7 points and 5.9 rebounds while Pau Gasol is averaging 18.3 points and 12.1 rebounds. Derrick Rose is dishing 4.9 assists and Aaron Brooks is shooting 44.6 percent from the field. The Chicago Bulls are allowing 43.3 percent shooting from the field and 30 percent shooting from deep in their last five games. The Bulls have won 10 of their last 14 games when allowing less than 100 points. Kirk Hinrich and Mike Dunleavy are questionable with injuries.
The Kings are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Kings are 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Chicago and 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
Although the Kings are banged up, the Bulls are one of the worst teams in the league at covering the spread. This is more of a fade from Chicago, as I like Sacramento and the points.
