The Sacramento Kings and the Milwaukee Bucks duke it out at the Fiserv Forum on Sunday night. Here’s a Kings vs Bucks Prediction.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in decent shape as they’ve won six of their past nine games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting thrashed by the 76ers in a 112-93 road defeat on Friday. De’Aaron Fox led the team wtih 21 points, Keegan Murray added 15 points with eight rebounds and three assists while Domantas Sabonis tallied 14 points with 12 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Kings shot just 33 percent from the field and eight of 38 from the 3-point line as they struggled to find their offense early and were always fighting an uphill battle after falling behind by 19 points going into halftime. The Kings didn’t play much defense either, at least not against the 76ers’ Tobias Harris who torched them for 37 points. The Kings will face the Suns after this game.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have lost 28 of their last 30 road games against Eastern Conference opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Kings have covered the spread in each of their last seven games against Central Division opponents following a loss.
  • Each of the Kings’ last seven games against the Bucks following a road loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Milwaukee Bucks

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been a little below their best lately as they’ve lost four of their last six games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after making light work of the Celtics in a 135-102 win on Thursday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 24 points, 12 rebounds and six assists on 10 of 13 shooting, Damian Lillard added 21 points while Bobby Portis provided the spark off the bench with 28 points and 12 rebounds. As a team, the Bucks shot 56 percent from the field and 18 of 42 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Celtics from the start and were never in danger after dominating the first half by 75-38. The only blemish from the completely dominant win was Khris Middleton who scored just five points on two of nine shooting.

Milwaukee Bucks Team Facts

  • The Bucks have won each of their last 14 games against the Kings.
  • The Bucks have covered the spread in eight of their last nine home games on the second leg of a back-to-back.
  • Each of the last 21 games between the Kings and Bucks have gone OVER the total points line.

Kings vs Bucks Prediction

The Kings could be a little shorthanded here with Kevin Huerter listed as questionable, while the Bucks are fully healthy once again. The Kings were building some winning momentum before they got stopped in their tracks by the 76ers in a tough loss on Friday and I think they’re about to suffer another defeat if the Bucks play half as good as they did in their dominant win over the Celtics on Thursday. The Kings are capable of the upset, but the Bucks should be well-rested for this one and they should have no trouble getting the win and cover at this reasonable line at home.
