The Phoenix Suns travel to the Golden 1 Center to battle the Sacramento Kings on Monday night.
The Phoenix Suns have been in great form as they’ve won five of their last six games overall and they will be eager to build on their current four-game win streak after outlasting the Jazz in a 113-112 home win on Saturday. DeAndre Ayton led the team with a season-high 29 points with 21 rebounds and two blocks, Devin Booker added 27 points with 11 rebounds and seven assists while Mikal Bridges chipped in with 16 points on seven of 10 shooting. As a team, the Suns shot 45 percent from the field and just six of 22 from the 3-point line as they wrestled with the Jazz in a close contest, before escaping with the narrow win in a shaky finish that could’ve gone either way.
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings look to have cooled off from their seven-game win streak as they are now hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after getting routed by the Celtics in a 122-104 road loss on Friday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 20 points, Domantas Sabonis tallied 18 points with 10 rebounds and six assists while Harrison Barnes chipped in with 12 points. As a team, the Kings shot just 41 percent from the field and nine of 36 from the 3-point line as they poured 40 points in the second quarter to erase an early 14-point lead, but they couldn’t maintain that pace in the second half where they managed just 42 points to allow the Celtics to blow them away in the end. Kevin Huerter had a rough game of just seven points on two of 10 shooting while Keegan Murray scored just three points on one of eight shooting.
Looking at the betting trends, the Suns are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a win. The Kings are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games, 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games following a loss of more than 10 points and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
Head to head, the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings overall and the Suns are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall.
The Suns are going to be without Chris Paul and Cameron Johnson again, while the Kings don’t have a single player listed on the injury report which is a real rarity in the league these days. The Snus come into this meeting as the team in better form and they would’ve taken plenty of confidence from their gritty win over the Jazz thanks to a big game from Ayton. The Kings have gone off the boil over the past couple games and they will be eager to put up a better performance after getting routed by the Celtics on Friday. I’m not surprised that the Kings have opened as favorites at home and even though the Suns are coming in as the hotter team, I’m sticking with the Kings to bounce back into form with a win here.
