The last time these two teams hooked up it was a close game and very high scoring game. The Kings and their fans will be out in force for this one in their new building and it could lead to the first half NBA Odds being a great play tonight.  

  Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings


Speaking of bad defenses, the Kings definitely fall into that category. At home, they are a little bit better on that end, but that’s not going to matter with the Golden State Warriors coming to town.

If the Warriors don’t drop 60 points in the first half of this one, I’ll be surprised. That’s why I’m going with the first half over at 115 at BetOnline sportsbook. Golden State is averaging 67 points per first half in their last five games and against the Kings this season it hasn’t been pretty.

Sacramento allowed 60 points in their last meeting last season. However, the great thing is in their own brand new building, I expect the Kings to hold their own in the first half against this underrated defense from Golden State.

It all goes through DeMarcus Cousins. If he is locked in and dominating against an undersized Warriors frontline, the Kings will be in this game. I don’t think they will lose by more than to 10 or 11 points that the spread suggests, but I do expect them to be up for the game. The Kings fans will also be out in force in their new arena welcoming in their divisional nemesis. I see this leading to an emotional and high-scoring first half.
