Sacramento Kings will face the Washington Wizards as underdogs but I trust them and I see them playing a very good match in offense against a poor defense.
In fact, Washington Wizards' defense is absolutely terrible at the moment. They have conceded 115 points against Philadelphia 76ers, 111 points against Detroit Pistons, 104 points against Denver Nuggets, 102 points against Los Angeles Lakers and 120 points against Golden State Warriors. The only match where they have played good defense was against Lakers as they have conceded 92 points before overtime. Today, they will face a team that love to play high tempo basketball and I don't see them defending well.
Sacramento Kings, on the other hand, is coming to this match after 3 losses in a row. It's true that they are not playing good but they are playing very high tempo matches. In the last 2 losses, they have scored 106 points against New Orleans Pelicans and 115 points against Phoenix Suns. They will be fully motivated to start winning again and the home advantage will make difference too imo.
Line for over/under in this game is setted at 206,5 and that means we should see high tempo of basketball. Sacramento Kings won 7 of the last 8 matches played at home and they have scored more than 101 points in 11 of the last 12 matches played in front of their fans against the Wizards. I think that the home advantage can make difference in this match and there are even chances for an upset. The Kings over 101,5 points is my tip for this match. I see good value as line should be a little bit higher imo.
Prediction: Washington Wizards 112-113 Sacramento Kings
