The Footprint Center plays host to this mouthwatering Western Conference clash between the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns on Tuesday (February 14) in NBA Regular Season action. The betting previews and odds are given down below:
The Suns were a frightening proposition at the beginning of the season as a fully-fit Devin Booker was causing havoc for defenses throughout the league. But after his injury, everything went south for them as they lost all momentum. But now that he is back, he has helped his team win both of their last two, with his impact quite discernible. On top of that, they have now added the juggernaut that is Kevin Durant, taking their aspirations from a playoff team to a championship favorite.
Although KD is still out injured, the Suns have looked quite strong recently, winning seven of their last 10, and have gone back up to the fourth seed in the West, with a 31-27 record.
Their opponents tonight, the Kings have also been flying in the West this season, sitting in third place with a 32-24 record. They won their last game against the Dallas Mavericks and have won three of their last four. Their star duo of Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox have been immense in their rise to success this season, combining for nearly 44 points a night, alongside the incredible playmaking the two pull off on a daily basis.

Kings vs. Suns Betting Prediction
This should be an incredibly feisty encounter, between two of the strongest sides in the Western Conference, which makes it very difficult to call. On par, the Kings should be able to cover the +2.5 spread in this game, considering the inconsistent scoring form of the Suns. While the form of DeAndre Ayton and Booker has been encouraging, the former has often been inconsistent this season. Conversely, the duo of Fox and Sabonis have been the epitome of consistency this campaign, giving them a strong stance in this game.
