The Sacramento Kings face the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, with the hope of bouncing back following seven consecutive losses. That slide is currently the third-longest losing streak in the league.

Sacramento just missed covering in their last time out, which wound up being a 13-point loss against a +10 line against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Brooklyn has been trending in the exact opposite direction, with the Eastern Conference power winning six in a row entering this contest. The streak includes victories over the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers that came during an impressive West Coast road trip.

It would seem most signs point to a repeat of last week’s Nets-Kings game in Sacramento, which saw the visitors win by 11 points. However,  our PRO Report suggests that sharps are taking the points with the Kings.
