Kings Struggling Mightily on the Road

Sacramento Kings DeMarcus Cousins

The Sacramento Kings have been far from road warriors this season but will be looking to turn things around Sunday when they travel north of the border for a matchup with the Toronto Raptors. The Kings have dropped nine out of their 11 contests away from home on the year, but are a much better 8-7 SU at home.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the Raptors and Kings.
  • The OVER is 5-2 in the last 7 games between the Raptors and Kings.
  • The Raptors are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win.

Both squads feature centers that are riding hot streaks heading into the tilt. Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins – one of the top big men in the Association – has strung together five-straight double-doubles, while Toronto’s Bismack Biyombo is averaging 15.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks over his previous three games.

There hasn’t been much value in betting underdogs when the Raps and Kings collide, as the favorite has gone 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between the clubs.
