Kings vs. Timberwolves Prediction & Pick

The Kings are no longer a joke and a lot of that has to do with their thunderous offense. They're averaging 132.2 points in regulation during their winning streak, tallying each win by an average 6.8-point margin. They've also won three consecutive home games, shooting 52.9% from the field over that stretch.

The Timberwolves may have back-to-back victories, but those wins came against two reeling Los Angeles squads. They lost three straight outings before that, so it remains to be seen how they perform against a hot team like the Kings. The T-Wolves could have trouble keeping pace considering that they're averaging just 108.2 points over the last five outings.

It's also worth pointing out that the Kings have a 79.2% winning rate when it's the favorite against a fellow Western Conference team this season. Taking everything into account, it's too tough to imagine Sacramento's streak ending tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Kings: 122 | Timberwolves: 116

Kings vs. Timberwolves Best Bet

I fully expect there to be plenty of points on the scoreboard tonight. After all, each of the last four Kings-Timberwolves matchups at Golden 1 Center have gone over 237 points, averaging 251.5 points in that span.

Considering that the Kings have been involved in some high-scoring affairs during their winning streak, I don't see that trend changing tonight. Expect to see some fireworks in Sactown.

Bet: Over 237 Points (-110)
