New York Knicks vs Sacramento Kings prediction

The New York Knicks in the underdog role is always appealing especially when they're close to full strength with Anunoby in the mix. The Knicks with Anunoby have been great SU and ATS, but make sure he plays as he battles an elbow issue. With that said, the Kings are at home, and they're fresh off massive wins over the Lakers and Bucks. This is a big stretch where the Kings could make a big regular season push for the best playoff seed possible. A potential run is coming. I'll lay the bucket with the Kings at home.
