Sacramento (6-9) will be looking to snap out of a losing funk when it hosts Toronto (7-9) on Friday night. The Kings have now lost five of their last six games following a loss to Minnesota on Wednesday. Toronto has not been playing well of late either, dropping six of its last seven games after falling to Utah on Thursday.

Tipoff is set for 10 p.m. ET. Sacramento is favored by 3.5 points in the latest Kings vs. Raptors odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and the over-under is set at 218. Before entering any Raptors vs. Kings picks, you’ll want to see the NBA predictions from the model at SportsLine.

What you need to know about the Kings

Sacramento is in a much better scheduling spot on Friday night. Toronto is in the middle of a six-game road trip and four of its starters played the majority of the game against Utah on Thursday. Sacramento comes into this game with a day of rest under its belt and a clean bill of health.

The Kings snapped a seven-game skid against Toronto last January, as Harrison Barnes scored 26 points in a 126-124 win. Barnes leads the team this season with 20.4 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. Sacramento has five players scoring in double figures-that should be enough to get past an injury-riddled Toronto team that is on a lengthy road trip.

What you need to know about the Raptors

Toronto will be without OG Anunoby (hip) and Precious Achiuwa (shoulder) on Friday night, but Pascal Siakam is back from shoulder surgery. The All-Star forward scored 25 points and grabbed 12 rebounds against Detroit, and he will be motivated to bounce back from a poor performance against Utah on Thursday. Shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. poured in 31 points on 12 of 18 shooting in the loss to the Jazz, while point guard Fred VanVleet added 24 points.

The Raptors will be confident in this matchup, as they have not lost at Sacramento since 2016. They have won seven of the last eight head-to-head meetings overall. Toronto has been an excellent team to back on the road, as it has covered the spread in nine of its last 13 road games.
