Sacramento Kings player in action

Coming off a back to back this season, the Kings have had mixed results. However, against the Rockets tonight, their defense and tired legs are going to lead to Houston scoring a ton of points. 

Sacramento Kings vs Houston Rockets

The Kings are the only team coming off a game last night where they absolutely wasted another fine performance from DeMarcus Cousins. After leading by 14 at half against a Sixers team coming off a back to back of their own, the Kings lost the game, even without having to face Joel Embiid.

This is because of their horrendous defense and coming off a tough loss last night, their defense likely won't improve much tonight against the Houston Rockets. Houston has destroyed the Kings twice this season, dropping 117 and 132 points on Sacramento.

Now, the Kings are only 4-6 cashing the over on no rest, but that's a bit misleading. In games where they are playing on the road on no rest, they are 3-3 cashing the over. Even further, two of those games were against the Jazz.

Considering they have played in Utah twice on no rest, if you take those two games away, the Kings are 3-1 cashing the over when they are playing on the road on no rest.

The Rockets should have no problem dropping 120-plus on the Kings here at home. The Rockets are averaging over 115 points per game at home this season. With the Kings allowing nearly 112 points per game over their last five, add the over to your NBA Picks.
