Kings vs Thunder NBA Prediction (2/28/2023)

Welcome to our NBA pick and prediction, where we’ll be analyzing the game between the Sacramento Kings and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday. Both teams have faced each other twice, and Sacramento has won both matches. The Kings are coming into this game with an impressive record of 35-25, while the Thunder has a 28-32 record. As sports handicappers, we have examined the pre-game information and injury lists and analyzed the odds for Kings vs. Thunder at Sportsbook. Next, let’s dive into our professional NBA picks and predictions for the game.

Injury List:

Injury updates play a crucial role in the betting market. The Thunder will miss their point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is out of the game due to health and safety protocols.

On the other hand, De’Aaron Fox is the only player on the Kings’ injury list. Fox participated in the non-contact portion of the Kings’ morning shoot and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday’s matchup against the Thunder.


Our analysis predicts that the Kings will win the game 129-124. The Kings are currently ahead 2-0 in their head-to-head matches against the Thunder. We believe the Kings have a better chance of winning this game because they have been in excellent form recently, winning four of their previous five games. The Thunder, on the other hand, has struggled this season and has lost their last two games.


As for the moneyline, we suggest passing on this bet. The Kings are being overpriced on the moneyline, and although they have a good chance of winning, the value in the odds isn’t worth taking the risk. Instead, it is better to bet on the spread or total or both.

Against The Spread:

Our recommended bet for this game is to take the Kings -3.5. Oklahoma City has an impressive record of returning from setbacks, and they are 15-5-1 ATS in their previous 21 games. However, the Kings should have enough to win the game by more than three points. Unfortunately, the Kings will be less motivated to put out a big effort as they prepare for a game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday.


Our pick for the over/under is OVER 235.5. Sacramento has been on fire lately, with the over hitting in seven of their previous nine games. The Kings have also had success scoring against teams with a losing record, with the over hitting in three of their previous four games. Additionally, the over has hit three of the last five meetings between these teams, and Oklahoma City has a history of scoring after a defeat.


In conclusion, the Kings and Thunder game should be a high-scoring affair. We predict the Kings will win, with the final score being 129-124. Our recommended bets are Kings -3.5 and over 235.5.
