The Sacramento Kings and Washington Wizards meet Saturday in NBA action at the Capital One Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Sacramento Kings are averaging 121.2 points on 49.9 percent shooting and allowing 118.5 points on 49.4 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 25.5 points and 4.3 rebounds, while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 19 points and 12.4 rebounds. Kevin Huerter is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 79.8 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.1 rebounds per game.

The Washington Wizards are averaging 113 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 113.2 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 23.4 points and 3.8 rebounds, while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 22.9 points and 2.6 assists.

The Washington Wizards are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.8 rebounds per game.

The Kings are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Wizards are 43-19-2 ATS in their last 64 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 12-5-1 in Kings last 18 overall. The over is 39-15-1 in Wizards last 55 Saturday games. The Kings are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings

The Washington Wizards are going to get some love because they're at home, and they need to start winning games if they're going to improve their playoff chances. However, the Sacramento Kings continue to win and cover numbers and somehow someway they continue to get disrespected by oddsmakers with these soft lines. The Kings are comfortably the better team here, and there's no debating it. Why we're only laying a bucket with the Kings is strange to me. Give me the Kings anyway.
