Another day, another loss for the Golden State Warriors. For the fourth straight game, Golden State ran out of gas down the stretch as they succumbed to the Detroit Pistons, 104-111. Alec Burks continued his fine play for the starless Warriors, finishing the game with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Omari Spelman chipped in with 23 markers off the bench, while Damion Lee added 14.

Alec Burks (16.0 PPG, 4.4 RPG, and 3.0 APG)
Eric Paschall (14.1 PPG and 4.5 RPG).

The Kings squandered their chance of posting a winning streak after falling short to the New Orleans Pelicans, 117-115. Harrison Barnes scored 30 points and Buddy Hield registered 24 points and 12 rebounds, and yet it’s not enough to overcome New Orleans who torched them with 16 treys.

Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings Betting Picks
Online bookmakers betting on the Kings to beat the Warriors by more than 12 points is quite surprising. Sure, the Warriors don’t have the star power they had in the past and Russell is still nursing an injury, but this spread really augurs well in favor of the bettors who picked the road team to cover the spread.
Moneyline: My pick is the Kings winning straight up. Buddy Hield and Harrison Barnes have been playing well as of late. Moreover, the possibility of Russell sitting out this game would boost Sacramento’s chance of winning.
ATS: An extra 12.5-point should help the Warriors get an ATS win. Despite being short-handed, Golden State covered the spread in five of their last eight games.
TOTALs: The total opened at 209.5 points. The Warriors and the Kings are each averaging 105 points per game this season. The last time they played each other, they scored 179 points. Given the lack of firepower on the Warriors, I picked UNDER.
Score Prediction: 104 – 98 Kings
