Pick: Kings ML (+125)

The Golden State Warriors will face off with the Sacramento Kings in the second play-in game of the night here on Tuesday night. The winner of this game will go on to face the loser of the game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans. The winner of that game later this week will clinch the eighth seed in the Western Conference standings and face off with Oklahoma City in the opening round. Both of these teams finished the season with identical records as they picked up 46 wins in 82 games. Now they will look to advance and end the other team season with a victory here on Tuesday night in California. 

Golden State is looking to add yet another title to their dynasty before their opportunities come to a close. They are perhaps one of the most incredible teams in the history of the NBA over the last 10+ seasons and they will look to add yet another chapter to their historic run. It starts with needing to pick up a victory in this game on Tuesday night on the road against Sacramento if they want to keep their postseason hopes alive and advance to the second game of the play-in round later this week. It was an up-and-down season for Golden State throughout the year, but they tend to play their best basketball when the postseason comes around. 

That is something they will need to do throughout this game on Tuesday night if they want to pick up a win. Most notably Steph Curry and Klay Thompson will have to step up and put up spectacular performances if they want to keep the hopes of winning another title alive. Golden State comes into this game with plenty of momentum after closing out the regular season with a victory. They’ve been successful away from home this season and they end of the year winning eight out of their last 10 games. That is partially why they are the betting favorites coming into this game on Tuesday, despite being on the road in Sacramento.

After spending multiple years in a rebuilding period the last couple of seasons for the Sacramento Kings I’ve been nothing short of special. They will continue that special run of basketball with a much-needed victory here on Tuesday night at home to advance to the next play-in game. Despite regressing after a solid year last year, this Sacramento team still has an opportunity to make a deep playoff run as long as they can remain healthy and consistent throughout the postseason. First things first they will have to get the job done against Golden State at home on Tuesday night then play the loser of the game between New Orleans and Los Angeles later on in the week. 

Sacramento has put together a respectable record at home this season after being one of the toughest teams to beat at home all of last year. They will keep that narrative true with quality performance here in this game on Tuesday night against a tough Golden State team that has plenty of momentum coming into this one. Sacramento finished the season with 24 victories in 41 home games and they were rather successful against the Western Conference winning 30 out of 52 games. However, they finish the season on a little bit of a slump, losing six out of their last 10 despite picking up a victory in their season finale.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Sacramento is 24-17 at home 

- Sacramento is 30-22 against the West

- Sacramento is 9-7 with 2-3 days of rest 

I expect this to be a back-and-forth contest between Golden State and Sacramento here on Tuesday night in California. In the end, I look for the Sacramento Kings to pick up the victory over the Golden State Warriors here at home to advance to the second game of the play-in round and keep their playoff hopes alive. I could easily see this game going right down to the wire and potentially going into overtime, but in the end, I look for the result to remain the same as I have Sacramento picking up a victory at home.
