4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Sacramento Kings +2
Coming into this game, both the Timberwolves and Kings are among the fastest-paced teams in the NBA. However, this game won’t necessarily be played at an extremely fast pace as both teams average 2 possessions below average when playing other fast-paced teams.
Sacramento benefits the most from playing teams like themselves, winning 42% of the time compared to 33% for Minnesota.
The main reason I like the Kings to cover the spread is their matchup with a Timberwolves defense among the worst in the NBA. When Sacramento plays bad defensive teams they score 3 points per possession above average. They also win at a rate of 52%.
