The Sacramento Kings are quietly playing decent basketball as of late that's resulting in some victories. However, they are on the end of a back to back and playing a physical, lengthy Bucks squad that is sure to rattle this young squad. This game could get ugly quickly if the Bucks can control the tempo and force turnovers. Even with that said, I can't bring myself to lay such a large number. The Bucks are outscoring teams by just three points in their last five games and three points at home. If forced to pick a side, give me the double digits with the Kings.
