De'Aaron Fox is averaging 18 points and 2.5 rebounds while Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.7 points and 3.2 assists.

The Pacers are 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 games as a road favorite. The Kings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 8-3 in Pacers last 11 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 5-2 in Kings last 7 overall. The under is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Indiana Pacers aren't playing consistent basketball right now, but they're head and shoulders the better team here. The Sacramento Kings are the same team they've been in years past, and that's a club that doesn't play much defense and comes up on the short end of the stick time and time again. This is way too much respect for the Kings. I'll gladly lay the bucket with the Pacers on the road, likely one of the better bets on Monday's NBA card.
