The current betting odds listed at Oddsmaker has the home team Sacramento Kings favored by -2 ½ points with the total lined at 197 points. Money line players on the side of the home favored Kings will lay -145 odds for their bet. Those who will wager on the road underdog Phoenix Suns on the money line will get back +125 odds.

The Suns enter play following a 96-89 home loss on Thursday night to the Houston Rockets as a -4 point betting favorite. This was a game where they had 13 less rebounds to an undersized Rockets team. Rebounding will be an issue tonight for Phoenix because they face a Sacramento team with DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson in the middle who are very good going after loose balls. The Suns are 6-8 on the road.

Sacramento has played well at home this season as the team is 7-4 in their 11 games on their own court. The team has won four of their past five games. They have responded much better with Keith Smart as head coach following the firing of Paul Westfall. What has been noticeable has been the play of center DeMarcus Cousins. He has been giving good effort on the court and is pulling down rebounds as he has averaged nearly 15 a game over his past four games as well as nearly 20 points a game during that span. The Kings are coming off an impressive 106-101 home win on Thursday night to the Oklahoma City Thunder so Sacramento will be well rested as they face no travel in this spot.

Sacramento is trending big time in this game as they have covered the point spread in three straight meetings versus the Phoenix Suns. Sacramento has been on fire ATS wise as they have covered the point spread in their past seven straight games this season.
