The Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors meet Thursday in NBA action at the Oracle Arena.

The Sacramento Kings look for a statement win after winning six of their last nine games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.4 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 114.6 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 20.5 points and 5.1 rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.2 points and 7.2 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 71.3 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Golden State Warriors look to keep the ball rolling after winning 16 of their last 18 games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.8 points on 49.1 percent shooting and allowing 111.7 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 28.6 points and 5.2 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 27.6 points and seven rebounds. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and DeMarcus Cousins is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81.2 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.4 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have won 10 of their last 14 home games.

The Kings are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Warriors are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 home games, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Kings are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Golden State and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 12-5 in Warriors last 17 Thursday games. The under is 15-5-1 in Kings last 21 overall.

The Golden State Warriors have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Sacramento Kings, but the last three games have been decided by an average of 3.3 points. The Warriors are just 11-17-1 ATS at home this season and have had many games come down to the wire lately. The one case to be made for the Warriors is that they're 14-7 ATS this season when a double-digit favorite. Still, the Kings have shown us enough in these type of situations to trust with the points and they have a history of playing Golden State tough. The value is with the road team and the points.

Pick:
Sacramento Kings +13.5
