The Orlando Magic and Sacramento Kings meet Monday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center.

The Orlando Magic could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Orlando Magic are averaging 103.4 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.2 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Nikola Vucevic is averaging 20.4 points and 11.7 rebounds while Aaron Gordon is averaging 15.2 points and 7.5 rebounds. Evan Fournier is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Orlando Magic are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77 percent from the free throw line. The Orlando Magic are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game. The Orlando Magic have lost five of their last six road games.

The Sacramento Kings could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 115.2 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 117 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 20.5 points and five rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.8 points and 7.5 assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic is the third double-digit scorer and Willie Cauley-Stein is grabbing 8.7 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 38.9 percent from beyond the arc and 71 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have split their last 10 home games.

The Magic are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Monday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Kings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games, 20-6 ATS in their last 26 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Magic are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 20-6 in Kings last 26 overall. The under is 6-2 in Magic last 8 road games.

The Orlando Magic have had a ton of close losses on the road this season and are actually a decent 10-8 ATS on the road overall. The Sacramento Kings are piling up the losses as of late, but they've had a brutal schedule and have still found ways to hang around and could have won some of those games against playoff teams. The Kings are growing up rather quickly and should be able to use that experience to beat up on lesser teams. The Kings are 5-1 ATS this season when a favorite of six or less points. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Kings at home.

Pick:
Sacramento Kings -5
