Prediction

Kings 109, Bulls 101

Moneyline (ML)

After dropping their first three home games, the Kings have won their last five, though by an average of less than 3.5 points per game. Their defense has been key in the turnaround, with Sacramento surrendering 101 or fewer points in four of the wins – including holding Denver to 97 points in an overtime win Saturday.

The Bulls are 6-14 overall on the season and 3-7 on the road.

Sacramento is giving less than a 50-percent profit on the moneyline, but nonetheless take the KINGS(-223).

New to sports betting? A $10 wager on Sacramento to win outright would profit $4.48.

Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The Kings are 5-3 at home ATS and 12-8 overall on the season (+0.1 points per game above projection). Meanwhile, Chicago is 4-6 on the road while allowing 1.6 points per game below the cover line. This becomes a razor-thin pick but the idea is that Sacramento can carry the pace of play a bit better than can Chicago.

Back SACRAMENTO(-4.5, -125) to win by five or more points Monday, delivering a much more attractive $8 profit.

Over/Under (O/U)

The projected total is set at 210.5 (-121 on the over, 100 on the under). Chicago and Sacramento may come extremely close to this number, making this a 50-50 coin flip. Even our predicted score marks the two teams for a combined 210 points. Since this could truly go either way, we recommend a PASS here.
