Suns vs. Kings Prediction & Pick
The Suns are a great team, but they'll be at less than 100% tonight. The newly acquired Kevin Durant (knee) will remain out of the lineup until after the NBA All-Star Game. While Devin Booker's return should give Phoenix a boost, his minutes will likely be capped until he's at 100%, proven by his averaging just 26 minutes in his last two games.
With the Suns having traded away key players like Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges to land Durant, it's going to be tough to keep up with the energic Kings. Sacramento has tallied at least 130 points in three of its last four outings and even scored 117 against Phoenix's tough defense in November.
The Kings also have some momentum stemming from their win over the Mavericks — a victory that saw Fox and Domantas Sabonis combine for 58 points. Considering how the Suns won't have the firepower to keep up if their defense is solved again, I like the Kings pulling off an upset tonight.
Final Score Prediction: Kings: 116 | Suns: 112
Suns vs. Kings Best Bet
When it comes to the best bet, I've got my eye on the total going under 233.5 points. After all, the under is 10-5 in the last 15 Suns-Kings matchups. Furthermore, the two sides have hit the under in five of their last six meetings at Footprint Center, combining for a 223.3-point average over that stretch.
With Durant being sidelined and Booker's minutes likely being limited, there's even less offensive potential tonight. Keeping that in mind, it's clear that siding with the under is the best bet tonight.
Bet: Under 233.5 Points (-110)
