In this all-Western showdown, two teams sitting outside the playoff places of the conference are clashing, when the Sacramento Kings (34-36), looking to bounce back after their latest defeat, are hosting the Dallas Mavericks (28-43), who are struggling lately having won only once in their last 10 games.

Spread: Sacramento Kings -8.5
Sacramento Kings have a 34-36 record (41-28-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they won at home against the Nets with a 121-123 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 20.7 ppg, adding 5.2 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.6 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game.
Dallas Mavericks have a 28-43 record (39-30-2 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the West. They have lost nine of their last ten matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Blazers with a 118-126 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Luka Doncic with 21.1 ppg, adding 7.5 boards and 5.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Tim Hardaway Jr. with 15.5 ppg and 3.2 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Kings won on the road with a 113-120 score. Kings have a 21-15 home record, while the Mavericks are 6-29 on the road. Kings are better offensively, scoring 114.1 ppg to Mavericks’ 108.3 ppg, while Mavericks are better defensively, allowing 110.1 ppg to Kings’ 115. Kings have better percentages both in field goals (46.4% to 44.7%) and in 3-pointers (37.3% to 34.1%). They are also better in boards grabbed (45.4 to 44.8), in turnovers committed (13.3 to 14.1) and in dimes made (25.5 to 22.8). Kings are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -8.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home win.
