NBA: Kings Becoming Hot UNDER Target

The Sacramento Kings' 12-17 SU and 14-15 ATS records on the season leave a lot to be desired, but they have been pulling through for bettors in the total market. The UNDER is 10-3 in the Kings past 13 games while the team has stayed under the closing total in their past six contests. The Kings will look to play another low-scoring affair when they host the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • Allen Crabbe has averaged 19.0 points per game during Lillard’s absence.
  • The UNDER is 18-6 in the past 24 games between the Blazers and Kings.
  • The Blazers are 9-4 ATS in their past 13 games in Sacramento.

After several less-than-stellar years, the resurrection of Rajon Rondo’s career is in full bloom for the Kings. The talented, though often bone-headed, point guard is averaging 12.4 points and 11.3 assists per game while routinely appearing in highlight reels for his dimes. Rondo has teamed up with DeMarcus Cousins to give the Kings two players averaging a double-double per game this season.

The Blazers have been without Daman Lillard for the past three games and though he told the media he could be available for this game, he admitted that it is more likely he will not play until Wednesday. Portland is coming off an unexpected beatdown of the Cleveland Cavaliers in which they held the Cavs starting five to just 40 points.
