The Sacramento Kings (3-3) visit the Golden State Warriors (3-3) Monday at 10 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Kings-Warriors NBA betting odds and lines, with picks and predictions.

Sacramento is coming off back-to-back losses at the Houston Rockets, falling 102-94 Saturday and 122-119 New Year’s Eve. PG De’Aaron Fox leads the Kings with 21.0 points, 6.2 assists and 1.7 steals per game, while PF Richaun Holmes is the top rebounder at 9.3 per game. Rookie PG Tyrese Haliburton (10.6 PPG, 4.4 APG), who sat out Saturday, isn’t expected to play Monday due to a wrist injury sustained in the first game against the Rockets.

Thanks to PG Stephen Curry’s career-high 62-points, Golden State had no problem with knocking off the Portland Trail Blazers 137-122 as a 4.5-point home underdog Sunday. Curry went 8-for-16 behind the 3-point line, 8-for-31 overall and 18-for-19 from the line. He finished just 2 points shy of Rick Barry’s franchise-record 64 points, which was set in 1974. The victory was a nice bounce-back game for the Warriors, who lost to the Trail Blazers 123-98 Friday in the opener of the two-game home set.

Sacramento swept last season’s series vs. Golden State 3-0, winning by margins of 21, 13 and 18. The Warriors had won the previous five vs. the Kings before that.

Kings at Warriors: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Kings 116, Warriors 109

Money line (ML)

AVOID. The Kings (-140) have the advantage of having Sunday off while the Warriors played the Trail Blazers. However, I’m PASSING on a wager here and focusing on the spread.

Against the spread (ATS)

SACRAMENTO -2.5 (-110) is the STRONGEST PLAY – 1½ times your usual wager. Before the two-game losing trip to Houston, the Kings had defeated the Denver Nuggets twice during their 3-1 start to open the season. So, it’s no secret they’re a better team than the one that finished 31-41 last season.

Sportsbook picks nfl

If the Warriors hadn’t played Sunday, they’d actually be the lean here, but look for Golden State to run out of steam in the fourth quarter. We only need Sacramento to win by 3 or more points to cash a winning ticket in this one.

ATS records: Kings 4-2 Warriors 2-4

Over/Under (O/U)

Back the UNDER 232.5 (-110). Sacramento averages 111.3 PPG; Golden State averages 113.0 PPG. A key matchup will be how Curry fares against the Kings’ 3-point defense, which ranks fifth in the league in allowing 32.9%.

Again, playing back-to-back nights will affect the Warriors in the second half this early in the season.

O/U records: Kings 3-3 Warriors 3-3

The Pittsburgh Penguins (4-3-1) travel to meet the New York Rangers (2-4-1) at Madison Square Garden Saturday for a 7 p.m. ET puck drop. Below, we analyze the Penguins-Rangers NHL odds and lines, with picks and predictions.

Penguins at Rangers: Projected starting goalies

Tristan Jarry (2-3-1, 3.92 GAA, .859 SV%) at Igor Shesterkin (1-2-1, 2.73 GAA, .894 SV%)

Jarry is once again projected as the starter, and probably for good reason. Both of his wins this season came against the Blueshirts. He is 2-0-0 with a 2.40 GAA and .917 SV% against the Rangers, and he is 0-3-1 with a 4.89 GAA and .816 SV% in his four games against everyone else. G Casey DeSmith is 2-0-0 with a 2.76 GAA and .871 SV% in two starts and three games overall, yet head coach Mike Sullivan continues to ride and die with Jarry.

Shesterkin is projected to face the Pens. While he is 0-1-1 in his two starts against Pittsburgh, he has a 2.91 GAA and .872 SV% against them with both games decided by one goal. That includes a 4-3 shootout loss Jan. 22 in the Steel City.

Penguins at Rangers: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Penguins 4, Rangers 3

Money line (ML)

The PENGUINS (-105) are slight underdogs, but they’re the better play. They already have two wins under their belt against the Rangers, and they have dominated this series in recent years. Pittsburgh has won five of the past seven overall, and nine of their past 12 trips to MSG.

Nfl Sportsbook Picks

Against the spread (ATS)

The Penguins +1.5 (-275) are just way too expensive if you’re looking for a little insurance. Risking nearly three times your potential return is just not a good long-term strategy. AVOID and roll with the Pens on the ML instead.

Over/Under (O/U)

Play the OVER 6 (-110) with a small-unit bet. The series trends say Over all the time. The Over is 17-6-3 in the previous 26 meetings, including 4-1 in the past five in Manhattan. However, the Rangers have hit the Under in six in a row against winning teams, five straight on one day of rest and three straight heading in. The Over/Under split 1-1 in the first two meetings in Pittsburgh this season.
