Why the Kings can cover
Sacramento has won two straight games and five of its last seven, maintaining its position in third place in the Western Conference. The Kings beat Phoenix by eight points last Friday before beating Utah by eight points on Saturday, as Kevin Huerter scored a combined 56 points in those victories. He has scored at least 25 points five times this month after having done so just four times previously this season.
Leading scorer De’Aaron Fox missed Saturday’s game against Utah due to a hamstring injury, but he has a chance to return on Monday night. Fox leads the Kings with 25.3 points, 6.1 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game, while Domantas Sabonis is adding 19.1 points and 12.5 rebounds. Sacramento is 13-4 in its last 17 games and has won nine of its last 11 games against Western Conference teams.
Why the Timberwolves can cover
Minnesota has put together a much-needed three-game winning streak over the past week, beating the Knicks, Hawks and Warriors to move into seventh place in the Western Conference. The Timberwolves are only a half-game behind Golden State for the final spot that avoids the play-in tournament. Karl-Anthony Towns hit a late 3-pointer in the win over the Warriors in what was his second game back from a calf injury that sidelined him for 51 games.
Guard Anthony Edwards also returned after missing three straight games due to a sprained ankle, playing 35 minutes against Golden State. He has scored at least 33 points in all three meetings with Sacramento this season, with the Timberwolves winning two of those contests. They have covered the spread at a 6-2-1 clip in the last nine matchups between these teams.
