The Sacramento Kings and Orlando Magic meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Amway Center.

The Sacramento Kings look to stay hot while building on their three-game winning streak. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 117 points on 50 percent shooting and allowing 120.3 points on 48.5 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.7 points and seven assists while Buddy Hield is averaging 17.2 points and five rebounds. Willie Cauley-Stein is the third double-digit scorer and Marvin Bagley III is grabbing 7.2 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 39.5 percent from beyond the arc and 64.9 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.2 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have split their four road games this season.

The Orlando Magic could use a bounce back win here after losing four of their last five games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 100.8 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 111.3 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 19.2 points and 10.2 rebounds while Evan Fournier is averaging 16.2 points and 4.3 assists. Aaron Gordon is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 31.6 percent from beyond the arc and 73.7 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.7 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have lost five of their last eight home games.

The Kings are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Magic are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 2 days rest. The Kings are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Orlando and the underdog is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

Don't look now, but the Sacramento Kings have won three straight games and have one of the faster, more aggresive offenses in the league that pushes the pace with those young legs and can go on big scoring stretches. We saw it last night against the Miami Heat. The Orlando Magic are dead last in the league in scoring right now. This is a game where the Kings can control the pace and possibly even win outright if those outside shots are falling. I want the points here.

Sacramento Kings +4.5
