Sacramento Kings To COVER (+12.5) @ Houston Rockets (-110)
The Houston Rockets are certainly heading in the right direction, after experiencing a bit of a lump a few weeks back. They have now won four of their last five games, including wins against top-tier teams like Miami and Toronto. On the other side, the Sacramento Kings have not experienced the same kind of success in recent weeks. With that being said, the Kings are still among the best cover teams in the NBA, as they have been over the last few seasons. Right now, Sacramento ranks third in the NBA with a 14-8 ATS record in 2019. On the flip side, the Rockets are just 11-11 ATS overall. Furthermore, the Kings play up to their competition, as they are 9-1 ATS in games against teams with a winning record this season. With a massive 12.5-point spread tonight, I’m betting on Luke Walton’s boys to cover against James Harden and company.
If you dive deeper into the betting trends, you’ll see that Sacramento is 11-3 ATS versus good offensive teams this season. The Kings are also 9-4 ATS on the road, 11-6 ATS as an underdog and 7-4 ATS as a road underdog this season. On the other side, the Rockets are just 8-10 as a favorite in 2019.
