Kings vs. Warriors Prediction & Pick
After the Kings looked in control following the first two games, the Warriors put them in their place on Thursday. Sacramento didn't even lead for one second in Game 3 as its high-flying offense was grounded, managing just 97 points on .380/.234/.696 shooting splits. What's even more impressive is that Golden State accomplished that while key defender Draymond Green was suspended.
The Kings haven't defeated the Warriors on the road since February 2020, losing their last seven trips to the Bay by an average of 12.4 points. It won't be easy ending that streak on Sunday. Golden State boasts a 34-8 record at Chase Center, where it owns a plus-8.2 average scoring margin (No. 4 in NBA).
In the end, the Warriors' playoff experience will help them erase the series deficit. Green's return will give them a boost as well, ensuring that the Kings' struggles at Chase Center continue.
Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 118 | Kings: 110
Kings vs. Warriors Best Bet
Although these teams have no shortage of offensive talent, I'm siding with the under on the 238-point total as the best bet. First of all, the under is 24-17-1 in the Warriors' home games this season, as well as 27-15 in the Kings' road contests.
Furthermore, Sacramento and Golden State have finished with fewer than 238 points in all but one of their eight previous meetings. With an average total of 227 points over that stretch, it's clear that backing the under is the right call here.
Bet: Under 238 Total Points (-110)
