The Sacramento Kings will host the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night at the Golden 1 Center with tipoff set for 10:00 PM ET. Coming off a 122-114 victory over the Kings on Friday night, the Mavericks may get Luka Doncic back for Saturday’s rematch. If he returns he will play together for the first time with the newly acquired Kyrie Irving. Irving was acquired from the Brooklyn Nets earlier this week, and Doncic has missed the past four games with a heel injury. Doncic indicated Friday that he is hopeful of playing. Dallas had seven players score in double digits on Friday while winning its third straight game. The Kings were back at home for the first time since Jan. 25. They went 4-3 on a road trip that concluded Wednesday in Houston. The Kings got off to a very slow start coming off that road trip and will look for revenge tonight.

Kings vs Mavericks Best Bets
Kings +3 (-110 DraftKings)
With Luca Doncic most likely back tonight, and joined with Kyrie Irving for the first time, many will be expecting a Mavericks win. But it’s never that easy, especially with two players who need to have the ball in their hands to be productive. It will take some for the two to gel. Led by De’Aaron Fox, the Kings are one of the better teams in the Western Conference and will make the necessary adjustments tonight to ensure they won’t lose back-to-back games at home.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to +2)

Kings vs Mavericks Game Over 236 Points (-110 DraftKings)
These teams combined for 236 points last night with no Doncic and with the Kings only making nine three-pointers when they average 14.4 per game. The over is 17-10-1 in Sacramento’s home games this season and I expect this to be a high-paced run-and-gun type of game.
