|Where/When||Golden 1 Center | 10:00 PM ET|
The Magic are ice cold right, and come into the Golden 1 Center on Friday night having failed to cover the spread in 6 of their last 8 games overall. The Magic managed to cover the spread against the Warriors on Thursday night, but have failed to string back-to-back ATS wins in their last 5 attempts.
On the flip side, the Kings are red hot right now, and despite coming off a loss to the Sixers on Wednesday, they haven’t been held to less than 111 points in a game since their 105-104 loss to the Miami Heat back on January 30th. The Kings are riding an 8-1 ATS streak, and have covered the spread in their last four games against teams with a losing record. Going back to 2013, the Magic have only managed to cover the spread in Sacramento on two occasions, going 2-6 ATS over the last eight years.
