Furthermore, in the Kings’ 123-110 road win over the Wizards on Saturday, guard De’Aaron Fox scored a team-high 26 points in 38 minutes of action. Forward Harrison Barnes closed out his performance with 21 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 33 minutes played. Sacramento has won four of its last 10 contests. In addition to winning back-to-back games, the Kings are 7-19 away, 15-17 at home and 11-15 ATS on the road this season.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, in the Nets’ 115-111 road loss against the Heat, guard Kyrie Irving led his team in scoring. He put up 29 points in 41 minutes spent on the court. Cameron Thomas also contributed 22 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 32 minutes played. Brooklyn has not won a game since defeating San Antonio on Jan. 21; the team is on a 11-game losing streak. Counting this loss, the Nets are 12-14 at home, 17-13 away and 5-20-1 ATS at home.

Referencing ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, the Kings have a 51.5% chance of winning. 

In the past three head-to-head meetings, the Nets are 2-1 versus the Kings. On Feb. 2, 2022, the first time these teams played one another during this regular season, Sacramento won 112-101 at Golden 1 Center. That victory ended the Kings’ six-game losing streak against the Nets. Due to the number of players Brooklyn has out, this game favors Sacramento.

In other news, the Nets are expecting to have LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Claxton, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond on the court tonight. According to the team’s injury report, Brooklyn will have to find a way to win without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Head coach Steve Nash has to utilize Curry and Drummond to their fullest potential.

Kings vs Nets Prediction | NBA Picks

Moreover, upon further review of these teams’ betting statistics, Sacramento is 9-10 as a favorite, 13-26 as an underdog and 15-14-1 ATS away, whereas Brooklyn is 23-15 as a favorite, 6-12 as an underdog and 5-20-1 ATS at home. Simply put, the Nets are a mess right now. They are without Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and even Ben Simmons remains out due to conditioning. However, are the Nets’ problems mostly related to team chemistry? James Harden is gone. Now the team needs to maintain a healthier roster.

Leading into Monday night’s Eastern Conference rematch, Sacramento is a 3.5-point favorite on the road. Aside from their one loss against the Kings earlier this month, the Nets have their number. Having said that, the Nets are struggling to overcome their injuries. So, pick the Kings to win, they will cover the spread and the total will go under 227.
