DeMar DeRozan is averaging 20.5 points and 4.4 rebounds while Dejounte Murray is averaging 15.5 points and seven rebounds.

The Kings are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games as an underdog and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 12-27 ATS in their last 39 games as a home favorite. The under is 8-2 in Kings last 10 overall. The over is 10-4 in Spurs last 14 Monday games. The Kings are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in San Antonio and 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
This line makes no sense, as the Sacramento Kings are playing their best ball of the season right now, which includes four straight wins and 51.9 percent shooting from the field in their last five games. The San Antonio Spurs continue to lose and they're losing their last five games by an average of eight points. The Spurs are 5-8 against the spread when favored by three or more points. We're getting free points with the team playing the better basketball right now. I'll side with the Kings.
