The Sacramento Kings should be favored at home, as they've been the better team this season, but this is a lot of points for a Sacramento side that's cooled off over the last week. Also, the Orlando Magic have competed all year, and that includes losing in the underdog role by an average of just 2.7 points. I'll take my chances with the free buckets.
