The Kings are 33-25 this season, but they have lost their last two games. They have matched up with the Timberwolves twice this season. In those games, the Kings have won once and lost once. De'Aaron Fox has averaged 31.5 points, and 9.0 assists against the Timberwolves this season.

Why The Kings Could Cover The Spread/Win

The Kings have lost their last two games, but they are still a good team. Injuries hurt them, and not having Fox is a big hit. When Fox plays this season, the Kings are 30-21. Their points per game are 15 points higher, as well. Sacramento needs Fox to play in this game, and there is a chance he suits up. If he does, the Kings will have a great chance to cover the spread.

The Kings should be able to play decent enough defense. The Timberwolves score just over 113 points per game on the season, which is not a lot. When the Kings allow less than 113 points on the season, they have a record of 15-5. Sacramento keeping the Timberwolves under their season average is a huge key for this game.

Why The Timberwolves Could Cover The Spread/Win

Minnesota, as mentioned, does not score a lot of points. However, their defense is one of the best in the NBA. In fact, it is the best by 3.4 points. The Timberwolves allow just 106.3 points per game. That is an elite defense, and it is a massive reason they are at the top of the Western Conference. When Minnesota allows under 110 points, they are 35-3. The Timberwolves are constantly holding their teams under 110 points, and this game could be another time they do that.

The Timberwolves need to hold the Kings to under 110 points. The Kings do not score 110 points per game when Fox sits out. There is a chance he does not play this game, which would make the Timberwolves defense dominate the Kings. Along with that, on the season, the Kings are 3-11 when they score less than 110 points. If the Timberwolves defense plays as they should, they will cover the spread.

Final Kings-Timberwolves Prediction & Pick

The Kings could be a bit short-handed on the road for this game. I also think the Timberwolves are the better team, and their defense is going to be the difference-maker. I will take Minnesota to cover the spread.
