I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams in the favorite role with the way they're piling up the losses. However, the Kings are at home with the rest advantage, so that counts for something. The Sacramento Kings also win in the favorite role by an average of 10.7 points. The Raptors are a tough sell in this spot. It's Kings and the small number or pass for me.
