Wolves -4 at Kings — 1.5 unit
The Wolves are on a 4 game winning streak, covered all 4 and they had a day off yesterday. Sacramento’s 2-8 their last 10 and the 2 wins were against OKC who had half their team out and the Nets during their 8 game losing streak. The Kings defense is terrible and there’s a trade set to happen with De’Aaron Fox in the next few days and he hasn’t been playing. Sacramento lost to the Knicks by 20 recently and Boston by 53. D’Angelo Russell is questionable this game but he played/came back last game for the first time in 4 games and looked great so this is likely just questionable on paper, but I like the Wolves even if he doesn’t play because Pat Bev is playing at a high level and they have a good bench with Malik Beasley and Jordan McLaughlin playing really well. Minnesota won the first 3 games of this winning streak without Russell, scored 126+ in 3 of the last 4 games, and 24 of their 28 wins were by more than 4. I’d bet this for the same amount at -4.5
Wolves closed at -7 and won 134-114.
