The Sacramento Kings (26-37) travel to meet the Dallas Mavericks (36-27) Sunday at American Airlines Center. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Kings-Mavericks odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.

The Kings kept their flickering playoff hopes alive with a 110-106 win on the road against the Los Angeles Lakers Friday, winning outright as 11.5-point underdogs. They used a 32-18 fourth quarter to grab the huge victory.

The Mavericks nipped the red-hot Washington Wizards 125-124 Saturday, hitting the Over, but Dallas failed to cover the 3.5-point number. The Over is now 3-0 in the past three for the Mavs.

Kings at Mavericks: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Mavericks 119, Kings 115

Money line (ML)

The Mavericks (-275) will cost you nearly three times your potential return, and that’s risky business. Porzingis might be limited in this one, if he plays at all. For whatever reason, Sacramento always seems to play Dallas tough.

AVOID.

Against the spread (ATS)

The KINGS +7 (-110) are worth playing on the road. While the Mavericks have cashed in four of the past five games overall, they’re just 2-6 ATS in the past eight at home.

In addition, the Kings are 20-6-1 ATS in the past 27 meetings with the Mavs, and 6-1 ATS across the past seven trips to the Metroplex.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 229.5 (-110) is the play there. The Over has connected in five of the past six meetings in this series. While the trends point to the Under for the Kings lately, it’s all Over all the time for the Mavs. The Over is 5-2 in the past seven for Dallas, and 7-3 in its past 10 as a favorite. The Over is also 5-2 in the past seven as home favorites for the Mavs.
