Sacramento Kings vs Minnesota Timberwolves prediction

You should check the injury report for this game before betting. The Sacramento Kings have a questionable De’Aaron Fox due to a knee injury. For the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kyle Anderson is doubtful with a hamstring issue and Anthony Edwards is questionable with an ankle. The Timberwolves are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, where they're 22-6 SU this season. Still, the Kings are too good of a team to turn down in the big underdog role. The Kings have also won 17 games on the road this season. Again, the status of Fox is key, but I'm not turning down a bunch of points with the Kings. Give me the road dog.
