Spurs vs. Kings: 3 Best Bets

The San Antonio Spurs hit the road again to take on the Sacramento Kings.

After an embarrassing loss to the Houston Rockets, the San Antonio Spurs are still searching for the first win of their short road trip. Tonight, the Spurs will take on the Sacramento Kings for the third and final time, who have vanquished the Spurs in the previous two outings. 

The Spurs have struggled against the Kings, De'Aaron Fox especially, this season, and hope to end the season series on a win. Without their young superstar, though, the Spurs will have quite the test. 

Nov 17, 2023; San Antonio, Texas, USA; San Antonio Spurs forward Victor Wembanyama (1) takes a break during the second half of the game against the Sacramento Kings at Frost Bank Center.

The Spurs will be without big men Charles Bassey and Victor Wembanyama, who sprained his right ankle. The Kings will be without Sasha Vezenkov.

Keep it posted for our three best bets, powered by the lines at SI Sportsbook.

The Lines

Point spread: Kings -10.5 (-118)/Spurs +10.5 (-105)

Money line: Kings (-654)/Spurs (+430)

Over/under: 236.5

Our Picks

Safe pick: Devin Vassell OVER 23.5 points (-120)

Devin Vassell's over/under has been hugging 20 points all season, so a line this high is a surge. However, with no Wembanayma, the Spurs will turn to their second-best player to get buckets. Vassell is a constant catch-and-shoot threat, but he is also able to score off the dribble and is deadly in the midrange. Expect him to get plenty of shots tonight. 

Opponent pick: Domantas Sabonis OVER 21.5 points (-118)

Dominick Barlow and Zach Collins are capable defenders, but Sabonis is one of the best offensive centers in the league. With no Wembanyama to get in his way, he should have an all-around solid night. He is averaging 23.5 points this season against the Silver and Black, so expect him to keep pace with that. 

Parlay pick: Tre Jones OVER 5.5 assists and Jeremy Sochan OVER 12.5 points (+140)

In the last matchup against the Kings, Tre Jones recorded nine assists and Jeremy Sochan scored 16 points. With no Wembanyama to create for himself, expect Jones to be a table-setter, making scoring easier for everyone else, including Sochan, who should build off of his last game against the Kings.
