Sacramento Kings vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, OH

When: Friday, December 7, 7:30 PM. ET.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be trying to bounce back from their loss to the Golden State Warriors when they take on the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.

Kings Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Kings are one of the biggest surprises in the first quarter of the season. The team has managed to bounce back from a slump and have now put together two straight wins. They will be trying to make it three wins in a row when they play the Cavaliers on Friday night.

Offensively, the Kings are averaging 114.7 points per game, which is sixth in the country. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 38 percent from three-point range.

Buddy Hield leads the way for the Kings with 18.4 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 17.3 points and 7.5 assists per game, while Bogdan Bogdanovic is averaging 15.4 points and three rebounds per game.

Defensively, the Kings are giving up 116.6 points per game, which is 28th in the league. They have played better on the defensive end during their current streak and will need to continue playing at a high level to the win on the road.

Cavaliers Looking For Second Win In Three Games

The Cavaliers were unable to string together two consecutive wins after dropping their last game to the Golden State Warriors. They will try to bounce back from that loss and try to put a few wins together, starting with a victory over the Kings.

Cleveland has struggled offensively this season, averaging 102.7 points per game. The team was hoping to compete for a playoff spot this season, but an injury to Kevin Love put an end to that and the team seems to have embraced a rebuild after benching J.R. Smith and trading Kyle Korver to Utah.

The team is shooting 44 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point range.

Jordan Clarkson leads the team with 16.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. Collin Sexton is averaging 14.8 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, while Rodney Hood is averaging 13.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game.

The Cavaliers have played better on the defensive end, holding opponents to 111.2 points per game, which is 18th in the league. With their offense struggling, they will need to play well on the defensive end to win this game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Cavaliers have struggled against the spread, losing four of their last five games when playing on one day’s rest, and eight of their last 11 games against Western Conference teams. The Kings have played better against the spread, winning their last four games when their opponent allows more than 100 points in their previous game and four of their last five games against teams with losing records.

Prediction: Sacramento Kings

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The total has gone over in eight of Sacramento’s last nine games and in 11 of the team’s last 12 road games. The total has also gone over in five of Cleveland’s last six Friday games and in six of the team’s last eight games against teams with winning records.

Prediction: Over

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

The Kings will take the first half because they have been the better first half team, averaging 64.7 points per game in the first half of their last three games while the Cavaliers are averaging 53.3 points per game.

Prediction: Sacramento Kings

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The Kings and Cavaliers are averaging 118 points per game in the first half of their last three games and they should be able to go over the first half total if they continue at the same pace.

Prediction: Over

I am very passionate about sports, so I kind of feel bad that I get paid to do this. As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
