Pacers vs. Kings Prediction ATS 11/30/22

We've cashed in big this season with the Sacramento Kings. While it's great to ride a hot team, there are times when it's even better to recognize when that team isn't playing up to their potential, and that is what I believe we have going on now. I'm betting the Pacers +4.5 in a game I believe will come down to the last possession.

Free Pick: 
Take Indiana +4.5
