Indiana Pacers at Sacramento Kings Preview & Picks

Indiana are tipped to cover as a home betting underdog.

Sacramento have not played well over the past few games, so if Tyrese Haliburton returns for the Pacers, they make for an appealing dog.

  • Indiana Pacers are 9-3-0 ATS in their last 12 games
  • Indiana Pacers are 6-2-0 ATS in their last 8 games as a betting underdog
  • Sacramento Kings are on a 3-game losing run
  • The Under has cashed in each of Indiana's last 9 road games

Head To Head

  • Indiana Pacers lead the all-time series 52-44
  • Indiana Pacers won 107-104 when the two teams last met in February 2023

Indiana Pacers Form

Indiana head into this game looking to bounce back from a couple of defeats that have cooled them off.

The Pacers ended 2023 with a run of three consecutive wins, and they kept that run going in the early stages of 2024, winning back-to-back meetings with Milwaukee, 122-113 and 142-130.

They took their win streak to six games with a 150-116 blowout of Atlanta, only to then lose 118-101 when they hosted Boston.

Indiana got immediate revenge, beating Boston 133-131 a couple of days later, and they backed that up with a 112-104 victory over Washington and a 126-108 win in Atlanta.

The Pacers have not won since though, following up a 117-109 defeat in Denver with a 132-105 loss to Utah.

Sacramento Kings Form

Sacramento return to their home court looking to snap a run of three consecutive defeats.

The Kings started the year with a 111-104 defeat to Charlotte, but rebounded quickly to beat Orlando 138-135 in double overtime, before beating Toronto 135-130.

They then bounced back from a 133-100 blowout loss to New Orleans with a 131-110 victory in Detroit.

Sacramento made it back-to-back wins when they travelled to Charlotte to take down the Hornets, 123-98, but they have not won since that night.

The Kings were beaten 112-93 in Philadelphia and 143-142 (OT) in Milwaukee, before heading to Phoenix for a 119-117 loss to the Suns.

Verdict

Indiana have been a reliable underdog in recent weeks, so if Haliburton is cleared to play here we expect them to at least run Sacramento close.
