Sacramento Kings Odds, Betting Guide & Picks for 2019-20
The youthful Kings took a step forward in 2019 but their playoff push ran out of gas in the season’s final month. They brought back most of their core and should see continued improvement from players like De’Aaron Fox, Marvin Bagley, Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic. They’ll again be a threat to spoil the playoff party in the West.
Here’s the key odds available and how you should bet them:
Kings Win-Total Betting
The Line: 38.5 with SugarHouse
The West is a gauntlet, but this Kings team is on the rise. They have three budding stars and added veterans in Dewayne Dedmon, Cory Joseph and Trevor Ariza. It’d be a shock if they didn’t improve from last season’s 39-win campaign, making us confident in them hitting the over here.
The Bet: Back the over. They’re just getting started.
Kings Pacific Division Odds
The Line: +3600 with DraftKings
Even in a best-case scenario, with the Kings moving up to the 7 or 8 seed in the West, they’re still a full tier (or two) below the Lakers, Clippers and Warriors. It’d be impossible for them to jump all three teams in the regular season.
The Bet: This is one to avoid.
Kings Western Conference Odds
The Line: +10000 with FanDuel
Their five leading scorers that return this season were 26 or younger last season. They’re still a couple years away from truly competing in the top-heavy West.
The Bet: For now you can stay away from these long odds. They’ll be much shorter the next few seasons.
Kings NBA Title Odds
The Line: +15000 with 888sport
The Kings haven’t won an NBA title since 1951 (as the Rochester Royals), and that streak will continue. There’s optimism in the organization surrounding their young core, but they aren’t close to competing just yet.
The Bet: Avoid these long odds, especially in the West.
Best Kings Player Prop Bets
Fox broke out last season and finished third in the Sixth Man of the Year voting. But that doesn’t mean he’s peaked or couldn’t move up in the voting again. There’s still room for his raw numbers to improve (17.3 points, 7.3 assists).
The Bet: If the Kings can pile up victories and make a playoff push, Fox could be the benefactor in the form of this award.
