The Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors meet Monday in NBA action at the Chase Center. The Sacramento Kings need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Golden State Warriors look for a win after winning five of their last seven games.
The Sacramento Kings are averaging 111.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 114.4 points on 46.6 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 21.3 points and 3.7 rebounds, while Harrison Barnes is averaging 17.6 points and 6.5 rebounds. Buddy Hield is the third double-digit scorer and Richaun Holmes is grabbing 9.3 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 75.3 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game.
The Golden State Warriors are averaging 111.4 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 101.1 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 27 points and 6.1 assists, while Andrew Wiggins is averaging 18.7 points and 4.5 rebounds. Jordan Poole is the third double-digit scorer and Draymond Green is grabbing 7.9 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line.

The Kings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Warriors are 34-16-1 ATS in their last 51 home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Kings last 7 overall. The under is 20-8-1 in Warriors last 29 overall. The Kings are 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Golden State and 9-2 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
This line is rather steep, and it's fair to say the Kings aren't that bad. The Sacramento Kings only lose on the road by an average of 4.2 points, and they lose by an average of six points as an underdog. With that said, the Golden State Warriors are winning and covering machines, and it's gotten to the point where you just blindly back them. If it's not broken, don't fix it. The line is heavy, but I'll blindly back the Warriors until the tickets stop cashing.
