Sacramento Kings Betting

The Kings dropped their last three games against the Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic and their latest was against the Dallas Mavericks. DeAaron Fox had 27 points and 12 assists to lead the team while Harrison Barnes and Buddy Hield each had 25 points. Nemanja Bjelica chipped in with 11 points and 12 assists while Marvin Bagley III tried to fill in the center position with 12 points and seven rebounds. There is not many personnel that the Kings can put in the frontcourt and this will be their weakness coming into this game.

Utah Jazz Betting

It took extra minutes for the Utah Jazz to be defeated as the reformed New Orleans Pelicans took them down, 138-132. Donovan Mitchell had 46 huge points in this game to go with six rebounds. Bojan Bogdanovic provided the added firepower with 26 points while Rudy Gobert had 17 points, 14 rebounds and 3 blocks before fouling out. Jordan Clarkson came off the bench with 15 points while Joe Ingles chipped in with 12. It was a long night for the Jazz and it quite showed that without Gobert manning the paint, they are very much vulnerable. Against the Kings who do not have a legitimate center as of the moment, they will look to maximize Gobert’s presence in the paint.
