The Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs meet Sunday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.

The Sacramento Kings look for a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 114.2 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 114.8 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 20.9 points and 5.1 rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.6 points and 7.3 assists. Harrison Barnes is the third double-digit scorer and Marvin Bagley III is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc and 72.5 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost six of their last seven road games.

The San Antonio Spurs look for another victory after splitting their last six games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 111.9 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.3 points on 46.3 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.5 points and 6.2 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 21.2 points and nine rebounds. Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.1 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 39.6 percent from beyond the arc and 82.1 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.7 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have won 12 of their last 13 home games.

The Kings are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. NBA Southwest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest. The Spurs are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 34-16 ATS in their last 50 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Kings are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in San Antonio and the over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings. The under is 11-4 in Spurs last 15 overall. The under is 24-11-1 in Kings last 36 overall.

The Sacramento Kings may be piling up the losses, but they're a young team that continues to compete and came into last nights game winning by an average of 3.3 points. The San Antonio Spurs are just 3-8 ATS this season when favored of eight or more points, but they're winning at home by an average of 7.1 points and are an impressive 24-14 ATS at home as well. I'm a bit hesitant to lay big chalk with the Spurs, but they're fighting for playoff position and have been one of the top home teams in the league all season. This is also a tough schedule spot for the Kings, a team with nothing to play for at this point. The Spurs could open this game up in the second half.

Pick:
San Antonio Spurs -9.5
