Sacramento Kings Betting
The Kings snapped their six-game losing streak on the road against the Chicago Bulls and winning by seven points. Buddy Hield came off the bench and led the team in scoring with 21 points, eight rebounds and five triples in just 23 minutes of playing time. Harrison Barnes contributed with 19 points and DeAaron Fox had 18 points, seven assists, six rebounds and three steals. DeWayne Dedmon started at center but he was plagued with fouls as he only logged in almost 19 minutes. Against the Timberwolves, they need him to help out in keeping a body in front of Karl-Anthony Towns. Still, he needs to be careful with his fouls since he is the only legitimate center that can size up with KAT.
