Why the Kings can cover
Sacramento is entering this game with momentum after taking down the top team in the Western Conference on Wednesday. The Kings received big games from De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis, who each scored 31 points and notched double-doubles. Fox dished out 13 assists to lead the offense, while Sabonis pulled down 10 rebounds.
Utah is coming off a disappointing 112-107 loss to Golden State, blowing a double-digit lead despite the Warriors being without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins. Sacramento has won seven of its last nine games against Western Conference opponents, while Utah is 1-8 in its last nine road games.
Why the Jazz can cover
Utah was unable to overcome a poor fourth quarter during its loss to Golden State, but it still put together three solid quarters. Lauri Markkanen scored 29 points and grabbed 16 rebounds in a double-double effort, while Jordan Clarkson added 22 points. Markkanen is having a fantastic campaign, averaging 23.2 points and 8.4 rebounds this season.
Clarkson is scoring 20.3 points and Collin Sexton is adding 14.3 points per game. Sacramento has struggled to get the job done at home against Utah in recent years, going 1-11 in 12 such games. The Kings have also only covered the spread once in their last five games, so they have been overvalued in the betting market.
