Meanwhile, the Kings stunned the Clippers with a last-second 128-127 victory. Sacramento have a five-game win streak and currently sit in third place in the Western Conference standings.

Kings -4.5 (-110 DraftKings)
Sacramento has one of the most balanced offensive attacks in the NBA. In last night’s victory over the Clippers each starter scored at least 14 points. Looking for their sixth straight win tonight, the Kings are 10-4 ATS in the second game of back-to-backs and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Full of confidence, and with playoff positioning on the line, the Kings should be able to handle the Timberwolves at home.

Kings vs Timberwolves Game Over 237.5 Points (-110 DraftKings)
With both teams liking to play a high-tempo style combined with both teams being among the worst defensively in the league, we should see plenty of scoring. Throw in the fact that the second game of a back-to-back is typically higher scoring, and I’m predicting a shootout. The over is 9-2 in the Kings last 11 games and also 4-0 in the last four meetings between these teams in Sacramento.
