Sacramento Kings vs. Golden State Warriors Predictions and Picks
The Kings come into this game on a two-game losing streak after dropping their last two games to Houston at home. They started the season well with two wins against the Nuggets and the Suns. In their last game, they had their lowest output of the season (94 points), and I wonder how much of that had to do with Haliburton’s absence due to a wrist injury. The rookie is averaging 26.8 minutes per game while scoring 10.6 PPG and dishing out 4.4 APG.
It would take some time for this Warriors team to find their rhythm — given some of the new players they brought in. Golden State started the season 0-2, but they’ve now won three of their last four games. Steph Curry went off last night with 62 points to lead the Warriors to a 137-122 win over the Blazers. The 62 points are a career-high for Curry, and it’s the seventh time that he’s scored over 50 points. When Curry catches fire like this, it’s usually a harbinger of things to come in their next game as the Warriors are on a 4-0 run after Curry drops at least 50.
I’m not sure when it was decided that the Kings were good enough to be laying points on the road. Let’s think about this for a second — the Kings are a much bigger underdog than the Warriors to win the title, yet they’re a road favorite in this matchup? I think this line has more to do with Golden State’s slow start to the season that involved two blowout losses against the Nets and the Bucks. With Curry starting to find his shooting touch beyond the arc, I like the home team’s chances.
My model shows a one-point edge with Golden State in this game. And with Golden State being a +2.5 underdog, I’m actually getting 3.5 points of value on the current line. That’s an easy enough decision for me, and I’ve got no problem taking the points in this matchup.
