Sacramento Kings vs Phoenix Suns prediction Pick

The Sacramento Kings are the healthier team entering this contest, as the Suns will be without Beal and Durant. The Suns have had issues at home this season as it is given their 4-5 SU record. The Kings have also won the last two games against the Suns, having a field day offensively in both games. Given the Sun's injury situation and now down two of their top three players, I have to lay the bucket with the Kings on the road.
