San Antonio at Sacramento
Sunday 01/23 09:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Sacramento +2.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
We got the cover with San Antonio the other night but some weakness was exposed as they were down 17 at one point. I think it's time for a contrarian play here as San Antonio is coming off a very nice run (3 straight wins and eight of ten). The Kings are on a bit of a roll themselves and I think they'll get the cover and probably the win at home here. Webeber is playing inspired ball. Home teams off five or more consecutive wins are 166-110 (60%) ATS. Also, top-level road teams on a run (having won 15 or more of their last 20 games) are just 33-66 (33%) over the last 5 seasons. The Kings step it up vs. great teams. They are 6-0 ATS vs. top caliber teams (those outscoring their opponents by 9+ points/game) over the last 3 seasons. One star on Sac.
