Spread: Sacramento Kings -3
Sacramento Kings have a 28-26 record (31-23 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. In their last game they saw a three-game winning streak getting snapped by losing at home against the Rockets with a 101-127 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 20.4 ppg, adding 5.1 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.3 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game, while Bogdan Bogdanovic adds 14.8 ppg, 3.5 boards and 4 dimes per game.
Miami Heat have a 25-27 record (27-25 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 8th place of the East. In their last game they snapped a three-game losing streak by winning on the road against the Blazers with a 118-108 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Josh Richardson with 17.3 ppg, adding 3.7 boards and 3.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Goran Dragic with 15.3 ppg, 3.1 boards and a team high 4.9 dimes per game but he is out with an injury.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Kings won on the road with a 113-123 score. Kings have a 17-11 home record, while the Heat are 14-11 on the road. Kings are better offensively, scoring 113.5 ppg to Heat’s 105.2, while Heat are better defensively, allowing 105.6 ppg to Kings’ 115.1. Kings have better percentages both in field goals (46.7% to 44.5%) and in 3-pointers (38.1% to 35%). They are also better both in dimes made (25.7 to 23.6) and in turnovers committed (13.7 to 14.5), while Heat are better in boards grabbed (46.5 to 45). Kings are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -3 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home win tonight.
