Sacramento Kings vs Phoenix Suns Betting Picks

Sportsbook betting sites are a bit confident that the Suns will win their fourth head-to-head encounter with the Kings this season by making them the 6-point spread favorites. Still, they should be wary of Sacramento who are starting to get consistent production from Heild-Fox backcourt.

Moneyline: The Suns are 7-4 at home and 7-8 when entering the game as the favorites. They should be a decent pick to win since they defeated the Suns in two of their three matchups this season.

ATS: The last time these two teams played each other, the game was decided by just two points. I think this game is going to be tight down the stretch, with the Suns hitting the key baskets to fend off the Kings. Still, my bet is on the road team to cover the spread by losing by just under five points.

TOTALs: The total opened at 225 points. The Suns are averaging around 115 points per contest, while the Kings are norming 105 points per game. In their last match against each other, they combined for 222 points. I pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 110 – 106 Suns
