Why Bet on Golden State versus Sacramento?
The Golden State Warriors survived and won Game 4 even though Steph Curry’s called timeout when there was no timeout brought the Kings into within a point. Curry’s screw up may have been the last chance for Sacramento win a game in the series.
Golden State got better as Game 4 continued. Steph Curry started playing his usual brand of dominating basketball. Draymond Green got into the flow without letting his emotions get the better of him. The Warriors looked good.

Why Bet on Sacramento versus Golden State?
Throughout this series, the Sacramento Kings have shown they’re one of the top teams in the NBA. The Kings had a shot to go up 3-1 over the Warriors in Game 4, but failed to get it done.
On their home floor, the Kings won’t make the same mistakes. Sacramento matches up great with Golden State. So unless De’Aaron Fox doesn’t play, he’s listed as questionable, the Kings will mange a way to get it done both SU and ATS.

Sacramento Kings at Golden State Warriors Betting Analysis
The Sacramento Kings are playing well enough to win this straight up, but De’Aaron Fox’s status is unclear. Without Fox, the Kings shouldn’t have much chance.
De’Aaron is dominating the scoreboard. He’s the main reason the Kings secured the 3-seed during the regular season and is the reason the Kings have challenged the Warriors during the series.
Fox is averaging 31.5 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists per game. The Kings’ best player said on Tuesday night he believes he will be okay. The question is whether he can control the ball when he shoots it with a splint on the finger.
It doesn’t sound like that’s possible, but shooters like Fox can surprise us with their ability to adjust. Because the Kings upgraded Fox from doubtful to questionable after a practice session, we must assume De’Aaron will be ready. Fox provides an amazing performance and the Kings beat the Warriors and win Game 5.
