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.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Timberwolves are on a nine-game losing streak and they hope to avoid another 10-game losing streak in just one season. In their last game, they were defeated by the OKC Thunder by 9 points. Karl-Anthony Towns was giving his everything as he had 37 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and four triples. Andrew Wiggins had a fair night with 22 points and Shabazz Napier registered a triple-double with 10 points, 13 assists and ten blocks. Three other T-Wolves produced double-figure scoring but it was not enough to get a win. Their defense has been lazy and that is the glaring need of Minnesota right now is to find a way to be motivated to put more pressure on the defensive end.
