San Antonio Spurs vs Sacramento Kings 02/08/2020 – After a solid run in January, the San Antonio Spurs have regressed back to being a below-average team, dropping their last three assignments. The Sacramento Kings have scored back-to-back wins and are trying to make that one last-ditch playoff run. On Saturday, these two teams will meet for the second time this season at Golden `1 Center with the Spurs expected to come in as slight road favorites after opening at -1 across the spread across major online sportsbooks.

San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs surprisingly stay put at the trade deadline despite getting offers for All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan. San Antonio will now have to rack up as many as wins as they can in the next two-and-half months to keep their playoff streak alive. Losing to the Clippers, Lakers, and Blazers this week certainly didn’t help their cause.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (23.2 PPG, 5.7 RPG and 5.2 APG)
LaMarcus Aldridge (18.8 PPG, 7.4 RPG, and 2.4 APG)
Patty Mills (11.8 PPG, 1.6 RPG and 2.0 APG)
Sacramento Kings Betting
The Sacramento Kings are a solid young team that has bright future ahead of them. However, this season proved to be challenging for them as they deal through injuries and chemistry issues under first-year head coach Luke Walton. At 22-29, they are still very much in the hunt for a playoff spot. They hope wins vs. the Timberwolves and the Heat this win would spark a spirited run towards the home stretchmark of the season.
Players to Watch: Buddy Hield (20.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 3.1 APG)
De’Aaron Fox (20.2 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 7.0 APG)
Bogdan Bogdanovic (14.6 PPG, 3.1 RPG, 3.3 APG)

San Antonio Spurs vs Sacramento Kings Betting Picks
The Kings are 5-5 SU and ATS in their last 10 games; the Spurs are 4-6 SU but 6-4 ATS. These two teams already played each other last December 6 with the Spurs taking a 105-104 squeaker. Online Bookmakers are anticipating a close battle between two teams. The spread opened at 1 point and then jumped a bit to 2.5 points hours later.
Moneyline: Pick the Spurs at -135. The Kings’ back-to-back wins didn’t look impressive on paper, winning against the hapless Wolves and the Heat squad that is missing Jimmy Butler and their new reinforcements (Andre Igoudala, Solomon Hill and Jae Crowder). I feel the Spurs have more ammunition than the two teams the Kings beat this week.
ATS: Bet on the Spurs to cover the spread. I think San Antonio will get an ATS win even if the spread shoots up to five points. Sure, these Kings will give the Spurs a good fight but I feel DeMar DeRozan’s lead would be enough to help his team win by a significant winning margin.
TOTALs: Back the UNDER at 224.5 points. The Spurs and the Kings combined for 209 points in their last game. These teams are scoring decently as of late, though they tend to play at a slower pace every time they play each other.
Score Prediction: 114 – 107 Spurs
