Pacers vs. Kings Prediction & Pick

Talk about two teams heading in opposite directions. The Kings have been on fire since early January and remain in position to earn home-court advantage in the NBA Playoffs. On the other side, the Pacers are fighting to hold on to a spot in the play-in tournament given their recent string of losses.

Sacramento's success is no fluke, either. Head coach Rick Carlisle's ranks first in points per game (119.5), third in shooting percentage (49.4%) and third in offensive efficiency. The Kings should have no trouble scoring on a Pacers team that allows the sixth-most points per game in the NBA (117.1).

Sacramento has won four of its last five games against Indiana, so back the Kings with confidence.

Final Score Prediction: Pacers: 114 | Kings: 122

Pacers vs. Kings Best Bet

The Pacers did get starting point guard Tyrese Haliburton back from injury on Thursday and he balled out with 26 points alongside 12 assists. However, it's going to take more than one playmaker to beat a Kings team that is full of them. Sacramento rosters six players averaging over 12.0 points per game.

Sacramento is 8-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last 12 games overall and 4-1 ATS in its last five games against Indiana. The Pacers are only 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and have lost six straight games against Western Conference opponents. Trust the Kings to keep balling out on Friday.

Bet: Sacramento Kings -2.5 (-112)
