The Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.

The Sacramento Kings look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 114.3 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 117.1 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 18.4 points and 5.5 rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.3 points and 7.5 assists. Willie Cauley-Stein is the third double-digit scorer and Marvin Bagley III is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 38.5 percent from beyond the arc and 69.6 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost four of their last five road games.

The Phoenix Suns could use a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 103 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 48.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 23.5 points and 6.7 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 17.7 points and 4.1 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Trevor Ariza is dishing 3.3 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77.2 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39.8 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have lost five of their last six home games.

The Kings are 14-37-3 ATS in their last 54 games playing on 2 days rest, 3-11 ATS in their last 14 vs. NBA Pacific and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Suns are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The underdog is 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 4-0 in Suns last 4 overall. The over is 7-1 in Kings last 8 overall.

We've made some nice coin on the Sacramento Kings this season in the underdog role, but I'm not sure how much I trust them as a favorite on the road. With that said, the Phoenix Suns have been fade material for quite some time and that increases with Devin Booker sidelined. The Suns have been getting blasted all year, and you can expect nothing different without their best player on the court. So, this game is either the Kings or pass for me.
