Suns vs. Kings Odds & Picks: Kings Ready to Light the Beam

The Kings welcome the Suns to town, happy to return to Sacramento after a difficult stretch of road games.

The Kings welcome the Suns to town, happy to return to Sacramento after a difficult stretch of road games against three of the league’s top teams. The Suns come in on a four-game winning streak, picking off four straight home wins against the league’s bottom tier of opponents. The Kings had their seven-game win streak snapped in Atlanta on Wednesday, then lost to the league’s best team, Boston, on Friday. They’ll look to get back on track tonight against a Pheonix club that’s lost three straight on the road.

Suns vs. Kings Best Bets

Kings Moneyline (-104, FanDuel)

It’s not uncommon to see home/road splits in the NBA, and these Western Conference clubs are no different. The Kings, the league’s second-best scoring team in the league at 119.1 points per game, average 9.6 more points per game at home than on the road. That home-court advantage is magnified in the second half of games. The Kings average 60.11 points per game in the second half at home and just 52.89 points when on the road.

The Kings’ home success coincides with the Suns’ road struggles, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Pheonix is giving up 7.29 more points per game on the road this season (112.3) compared to when they’re at home (105.0). Chris Paul remains out for the Suns, while the Kings roll out their core group for this contest. I like the Kings to win here, and I’ll back them on the moneyline.

This total has increased since it opened at 231, with early action coming in on the over. As noted above, the Kings have been an ‘over’ team at home, but overall, both teams have fallen short of their game total more times than not this season. Suns games this season have gone over the point total seven times in 19 opportunities (36.8%), while the Kings have had similar results, going over just eight times in 19 chances (42.1%).
