The Sacramento Kings and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Paycom Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Kings vs Thunder prediction.

Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in decent shape as they’ve won seven of their last 12 games overall and they will be eager to build some momentum after blowing past the Nets in a 107-77 road win on Sunday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 20 points, Keegan Murray added 19 points with six rebounds and four blocks while Domantas Sabonis tallied 18 points with 20 rebounds and nine assists. As a team, the Kings shot 42 percent from the field and 15 of 48 from the 3-point line, but this win was all about their defense as they kept the Nets to just 40 points in the first half to take the early lead, before they dominated the fourth quarter by 29-13 to make it a complete blowout. The Kings will meet the Pelicans after this one.

Oklahoma City Thunder

Meanwhile, the Oklahoma City Thunder were in a bit of a rut as they were on a three-game slide before they snapped out of it with a 121-118 road win over the Hornets on Sunday. Aaron Wiggins led the team with 26 points with five assists and six steals, Chet Holmgren tallied 20 points with 10 rebounds and three blocks while Josh Giddey racked up a triple-double of 20 points with 13 rebounds and 13 assists. As a team, the Thunder shot 51 percent from the field and 18 of 36 from the 3-point line as they squandered an early 14-point lead, before escaped on free throws down the stretch to escape with the much-needed road win.

Oklahoma City Thunder Team Facts

  • The Thunder have won eight of their last nine home games against Western Conference opponents.
  • The home team has covered the spread in each of the Thunder’s last six games.
  • Each of the Thunder’s last 13 home games against Pacific Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have won each of their last eight night games against the Thunder.
  • The Kings have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven games against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back.
  • Six of the Kings’ last seven games against opponents who are on the first leg of a back-to-back have gone OVER the total points line.

Kings vs Thunder prediction

The Kings are still missing Malik Monk and Kevin Huerter, while the Thunder are still without Gordon Hayward, and they have Jalen Williams listed as questionable. The Kings come into this game with some momentum after beating the Nets by 30 points in their last outing, while the Thunder are coming into this one fresh off an unconvincing win over the lowly Hornets in their last outing. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is expected to return to the lineup for this one, so I am sticking with the Thunder to get the win and cover at the modest line at home.
