The Sacramento Kings will host the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night at the Golden 1 Center with tipoff set for 6:00 PM ET. The Kings have rebounded from an 0-4 start to win eight of 10, including their last five in a row. They’ll be looking to complete a perfect 4-0 homestand against the Pistons, having already beaten Golden State, Brooklyn and San Antonio in the past week. The Pistons have lost six in a row, including two straight to open their current six-game Western swing. Cade Cunningham remains out indefinitely with a shin injury that is being reported as a stress fracture that might require surgery.
Kings vs. Pistons Betting Odds
Kings -9.5 (-110 DraftKings)
Coming off their loss to the Lakers on Friday, the Pistons now have an 0-9 record on the road this year. With Cunningham, Isaiah Stewart and Saddiq Bey out, things will not get any easier on the road against the potent Kings offense. Sacramento is on a 5-game winning streak and has scored at least 120 points in those games, covering the spread in each. They are now 5-1 ATS this season. The Pistons, on the other hand, are 2-6-1 ATS on the road so far. Sacramento is healthy and De’Aaron Fox is blossoming into a star. Expect the Kings to have little trouble in what should also be a high-scoring affair.
