Golden 1 Center
The Line: Sacramento -4 -- Over/Under 232
The Brooklyn Nets pay a visit to the Sacramento Kings at the Golden 1 Center on Tuesday night.
The Brooklyn Nets have lost six of their past 10 games and they will be hoping to put a halt to a three-game skid after falling just short against the Clippers in a 119-116 road loss on Sunday. D’Angelo Russell led the team with 32 points and 10 assists, DeMarre Carroll added 22 points while Jarrett Allen and Spencer Dinwiddie each scored 13 points. As a team, the Nets shot 42 percent from the field and 14 of 38 from the 3-point line as they dominated the Clippers in the early going to lead by as many as 18 points, only to see that lead disappear as the Clippers’ Lou Williams drained a deep 3-pointer at the buzzer to steal the game. With the heartbreaking loss, Brooklyn fell to 36-36 overall and 15-20 on the road which is good for seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings have been in a slump as they’ve lost seven of their past 10 games, but they will be looking to build some momentum after snapping a three-game skid with a dominant 129-102 home win over the Bulls on Sunday. Marvin Bagley III led the team with 21 points in 21 minutes off the bench, De’Aaron Fox added 17 points while Buddy HIeld chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Kings shot 52 percent from the field and eight of 23 from the 3-point line but they did most of their work in the second and third quarters where they outscored the Bulls by a combined 75-48 to put the game to bed early. With the easy win, Sacramento improved to 34-35 overall and 21-14 at home.
Looking at the betting trends, the Nets are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games, 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team with a losing record and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Kings are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 home games, 7-16-1 ATS in their last 24 games following a win of more than 10 points.
Head to head, the over is 12-5-1 in the last 18 meetings in Sacramento, the Nets are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings overall and the Nets are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Sacramento.
The Kings will be feeling much better after routing the Bulls on Sunday to snap a three-game losing streak, but with the playoffs just around the corner, the Nets have more on the line, so an upset may be on the cards here. The Kings are 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 home games, so they’re understandably favorites here, but the Nets are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Sacramento and I think they can pull off a much-needed win here.
