The Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz meet Monday in NBA action at the Vivint Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Sacramento Kings are averaging 121.1 points on 49.8 percent shooting and allowing 118.2 points on 49.3 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 25.3 points and 4.3 rebounds, while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 19.2 points and 12.5 rebounds. Kevin Huerter is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.3 rebounds per game.

The Utah Jazz are averaging 117.2 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 117.2 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Lauri Markkanen is averaging 25.4 points and 8.6 rebounds, while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 20.8 points and 4 rebounds. Collin Sexton is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Olynyk is dishing 3.4 assists. The Utah Jazz are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game.

The Kings are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jazz are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 13-5-1 in Kings last 19 overall. The over is 6-0-1 in Jazz last 7 overall. The Kings are 15-7-3 ATS in the last 25 meetings in Utah and 2-7-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Utah Jazz are still playing decent ball, and they're worth a look in the decent underdog role, but this is more about the Kings for me. The Sacramento Kings continue to win and cover numbers, and they're not a team I'm eager to step in front of. Also, the Kings win in the favorite role by an average of 6.6 points. I'll continue to back the Kings as long as they're in this form.
