Date/Time: 02-06-2019, 22:00 EDT
Spread: Sacramento Kings +3
Sacramento Kings have a 28-25 record (31-22 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. They have won four of their last five matches and in their last game they won at home against the Spurs with a 127-112 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 20.4 ppg, adding 5 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.5 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game, while Bogdan Bogdanovic adds 14.9 ppg, 3.5 boards and 4 dimes per game.
Houston Rockets have a 31-22 record (24-28-1 against the spread) so far this season and sit in the 6th place of the West. They have back-to-back wins and in their last game they won on the road against the Suns with a 118-110 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by James Harden with 36.5 ppg, adding 6.8 boards and a team high 8 dimes per game. He is followed by Clint Capela with 17.6 ppg and a team high 12.6 boards per game but he is out with an injury.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Rockets won at home with a 132-112 score. Kings have a 17-10 home record, while the Rockets are 12-14 on the road. Kings are better offensively, scoring 113.7 ppg to Rockets’ 112.8, while Rockets are better defensively, allowing 111.1 pgg to Kings’ 114.8. Kings have better percentages both in field goals (46.8% to 44.7%) and in 3-pointers (38.2% to 34.6%). They are also better in boards grabbed (44.8 to 41.8), in dimes made (25.8 to 20.7) and both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (13.3 to 13.5). Kings are playing better lately and while Vegas odds give the Rockets a -3 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Kings for the home win.
