Raptors vs. Kings NBA Betting Odds

Sacramento is arguably the most improved team in the NBA this season under first-year coach Mike Brown, one of the betting favourites for NBA Coach of the Year. The Kings haven’t made the playoffs since 2006, the longest drought in the league. Not only is that likely to end, but Sacramento is running away with the Pacific Division – maybe the deepest division in the NBA with the Suns, Warriors and both Los Angeles teams residing there.

This concludes the season series between the Raptors and Kings as Toronto lost 124-123 at home on Dec. 14, blowing a 16-point second-quarter lead. De’Aaron Fox had 27 points and 10 assists, Domantas Sabonis added 21 points and 20 rebounds, Malik Monk scored 24 points, and Terence Davis added 19 for the Kings against his former team. Coach Brown was ejected after picking up two technicals with 9:09 left in the third quarter. Fred VanVleet scored 39 points for Toronto but missed a three-pointer that would have tied it with four seconds remaining. OG Anunoby was out injured.

Toronto trails the all-time series 28-24 and is 8-17 as the road team despite winning the past five.

Toronto Raptors

Sometimes the Raptors make no sense. Off a blown fourth-quarter lead against Boston at home on Saturday, they turned around and hosted a rested New York Knicks team 24 hours later and won 125-116 to snap a three-game skid. Fourth quarters have been a major issue for the Dinos as of late, but they outscored the Knicks by nine in the final frame. Fred VanVleet’s availability was in question with back issues but had 28 points as all five starters scored in double figures. VanVleet has scored 25-or-more points in four consecutive games for the second time in his career. Pascal Siakam and Gary Trent Jr. each had 24 points, Scottie Barnes had 19, and Precious Achiuwa added 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Achiuwa started with OG Anunoby out due to right ankle soreness, and but Anunoby will play Wednesday. The Raptors shot 44.1 per cent from deep vs. New York and are now 9-1 this season when hitting at least 40 per cent from three-point range. The Raptors are 5-11 ATS in their past 11 road games.

Sacramento Kings

Sacramento won for the seventh time in eight games Monday, routing Memphis 133-100 as the Grizzlies played without superstar Ja Morant. The Kings outscored the Grizzlies 33-10 in the fourth. Sacramento also tied the NBA record with 12 made three-pointers in the first quarter — in just 13 attempts — and scored 47 points. The team finished 22 of 40 (55.0 per cent) from long distance, one shy of the franchise record for made three-pointers in a game. Reserve Trey Lyles scored a season-high 24 points to lead Sacramento. Double-double machine Domantas Sabonis had 14 points and 11 assists (third straight game with at least 10 helpers), and good-looking rookie Keegan Murray added 20 points and nine rebounds.

The Kings are healthy and 6-1-1 ATS in their past eight.
