The Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings meet Sunday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Houston Rockets vs Sacramento Kings prediction.

Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their past four games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting routed by the Trail Blazers in a 123-107 road win on Friday. Jeff Green led the team with 27 points and five assists, Alperen Sengun added 19 points with nine rebounds and six assists while Fred VanVleet chipped in with 18 points and 10 assists. As a team, the Rockets shot 47 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line as they allowed the Trail Blazers to get off to a quick start and trailed by 12 points in the first half, before they exploded for 68 points in the second half to make it a complete blowout win in the end. The Rockets will meet the Spurs and Wizards after this one.

Sacramento Kings

Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings have been in pretty good form as they’ve won six of their last nine games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the lowly Spurs in a 131-129 win on Thursday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 33 points and five assists on 14 of 32 shooting, Domantas Sabonis tallied 31 points with 17 rebounds and nine assists while Malik Monk chipped in with 18 points, seven rebounds and nine assists off the bench. As a team, the Kings shot 51 percent from the field and 10 of 32 from the 3-point line as they caught fire with 41 points in the second quarter to take a 20-point lead, but it wasn’t exactly smooth sailing after that as the Kings were in trouble before they closed the final 51.0 seconds on a 7-0 run to escape with the narrow win at home. The Kings will face the Bucks after this game.

Sacramento Kings Team Facts

  • The Kings have lost each of their last six day games.
  • The Kings have failed to cover the spread in 15 of their last 16 games as home favorites against Western Conference opponents following a win.
  • Seven of the last eight games between the Rockets and Kings have gone OVER the total points line.

Houston Rockets Team Facts

  • The Rockets have lost 25 of their last 26 road games when playing with a rest disadvantage.
  • The favorites have covered the spread in eight of the Rockets’ last nine games at Golden 1 Center.
  • Six of the Rockets’ last seven road games against Pacific Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Houston Rockets vs Sacramento Kings prediction

The Rockets are still a little shorthanded with Tari Eason still out, while the Kings are still missing Sasha Vezenkov and Davion Mitchell once again. The Rockets have started to turn things around with a few wins over the past weekand they looked great in their big win over the Trail Blazers on Friday, but they’re going to have to be at their best against this in-form Kings team who have all their key players healthy. This is a tough one to pick, but at the moment I prefer a play on the more reliable Kings in this spot.
