De'Aaron Fox is averaging 20.6 points and 3.3 rebounds while Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.2 points and 3.4 assists. Buddy Hield is the third double-digit scorer and Richaun Holmes is grabbing 8.2 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc and 71.5 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 39.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.4 rebounds per game.
The Toronto Raptors look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 110.3 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 109.8 points on 45 percent shooting. Fred VanVleet is averaging 18.9 points and 4.5 rebounds while Pascal Siakam is averaging 18.1 points and 4.6 assists.

The Kings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Raptors are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The over is 8-3 in Kings last 11 overall. The under is 5-1 in Raptors last 6 overall. The Kings are 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings aren't winning, aren't playing defense, aren't covering numbers and are losing their last five games by an average of 7.8 points. The Toronto Raptors are playing their best ball of the season right now and already beat the Kings this month by 21 points while shooting 58 percent from the field and making 20 threes. This should be another comfortable win for the Raptors. I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
