The Golden State Warriors (49-29) visit the Golden 1 Center Sunday to take on the Sacramento Kings (29-49). Tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET. Below, we look at the Warriors vs. Kings odds and lines, and make our expert NBA picks, predictions and bets.
The Warriors, who are trying to keep their place in the Western Conference, are coming off Saturday’s thrilling victory over the Jazz, covering as 2-point home underdogs. They won 111-107 despite being down 16 in the fourth quarter.
Golden State has been led by G Jordan Poole, who has recorded 2 straight 30-point games and averaged 25.4 points per game in March. The Warriors are just 3-6 against the spread (ATS) in the last 9 games and are 38-36-4 ATS on the season.
The Kings, clearly out of play-in tournament contention, are 38-39-1 ATS on the season and will be without their two leading scorers.
They sit 12th in the West and are 3.5 games behind the Spurs for the 10th spot. Sacramento is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games though. It allows the second-most points per game in the league (115.8), its main Achilles heel.

Warriors at Kings odds, lines, picks and predictions
Warriors 114, Kings 111
While I like the Warriors to win, their -230 money line is far too steep. The Kings, having won 4 of their last 5, have some value at +180, but I’d pass and look toward the points for value.
