The Sacramento Kings look for a solid home victory to snap a four-game losing streak. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 106.6 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 108.2 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Rudy Gay is averaging 18 points and 6.9 rebounds while Darren Collison is averaging 12.7 points and 4.1 assists. Omri Casspi is grabbing 6.5 rebounds and Rajon Rondo is dishing 11.8 assists. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 72.3 percent from the free throw line.

DeMarcus Cousins and Marco Belinelli are questionable.
The Bucks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Central and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Bucks are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Sacramento and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Kings play well on their home court and have the outside shooting to give the Bucks defense issues. Assuming Cousins plays, I like Sacramento to get the job done here.
