The Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets meet Sunday in NBA action at the Barclays Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Kings vs Nets prediction.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in rough shape as they’ve lost four of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after falling painfully short to the Celtics in a 101-100 road defeat on Friday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 40 points on 16 of 29 shooting, Domantas Sabonis added 16 points with 16 rebounds and six assists while Keegan Murray chipped in with 10 points, 11 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Kings shot just 38 percent from the field and 17 of 51 from the 3-point line as they worked so hard to erase a 19-point deficit, only to see the Celtics’ Xavier Tillman take the game away with a clutch shot with just 7.1 seconds left on the clock.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in decent shape as they’ve won five of their last seven games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after sneaking past the Pistons in a 113-103 home win last night. Cam Thomas led the team with 32 points, six rebounds and five assists, Dennis Schroder added 24 points with six assists while Noah Clowney chipped in with 17 points, six rebounds and four blocks off the bench. As a team, the Nets shot just over 52 percent from the field and 11 of 27 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and had to claw their way back from a 19-point deficit, before they dominated the fourth quarter by 38-20 to make it look easy in the end. The Nets will face the Raptors after this game.

Brooklyn Nets Team Facts

  • The Nets have lost each of their last seven home games against Pacific Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Nets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight games as underdogs against Western Conference opponents following a win.
  • Seven of the Nets’ last eight home games on the second leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have lost 12 of their last 13 road games against Atlantic Division opponents following a loss.
  • The Kings have covered the spread in each of their last eight road games against Eastern Conference opponents following a loss.
  • Eight of the Kings’ last nine games against Eastern Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Kings vs Nets prediction

The Kings are missing a couple of players with Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter still out. The Nets are still missing Cameron Johnson and Dennis Smith Jr. The Kings could really do with a win to get back on track. The Kings would’ve been kicking themselves after falling painfully short to the red-hot Celtics in their last outing, but I think they can bounce back with a win over this Nets squad. Yes, the Nets are the team in better form, but they are playing their second game of a back to back set, so I am sticking with the Kings at the reasonable line.
