The Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz meet Friday in NBA action at the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

The Sacramento Kings look for a victory after splitting their last 12 games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 114.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Buddy Hield is averaging 20.9 points and 5.1 rebounds while De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.4 points and 7.3 assists. Marvin Bagley III is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Sacramento Kings have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Utah Jazz look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Utah Jazz are averaging 111.3 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 106 points on 45 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 23.5 points and 4.1 assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 15.7 points and 12.9 rebounds. Ricky Rubio is the third double-digit scorer and Jae Crowder is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 73.5 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have won each of their last six home games.

The Kings are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 0 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and  2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jazz are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games. The Kings are 26-10-2 ATS in the last 38 meetings in Utah and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 26-12-1 in Kings last 39 overall. The under is 9-4 in Jazz last 13 overall.

The Utah Jazz enter this game playing as well as any team in the league, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 16.4 points while shooting 53.2 percent from the field. The Sacramento Kings may not be winning games, but they continue to compete and are only losing games when a double-digit underdog by an average of 8.1 points. The Kings don't get blown out often, and the Jazz are only 19-19-1 ATS at home and 8-7 ATS as a double-digit favorite. I'll take a stab with the boatload of points here.

Pick:
Sacramento Kings +10
