  • The Suns are -5.5 against the Kings on Friday.
  • Phoenix has won two straight against the Kings, who are playing two straight nights.
  • Get the latest BetMGM insights for the spread, total and moneyline.

Before Friday’s primetime NBA game tips off from Sacramento, I’m here to share an NBA public betting report for Kings vs. Suns.

For clarity, the public side is defined as the spread, total or moneyline which receives a majority of tickets. 

In terms of sharp betting indicators, bettors can determine the “sharp” side by looking for markets with a higher money percentage compared to their tickets. 

With that established, let’s dive into the report based on NBA odds at the BetMGM online sportsbook.  

NBA Public Betting Odds Report – Kings vs. Suns

Bettors aren’t afraid to lay the points with the Suns, who are seeking an escape from the play-in tournament with two games left. 

As of Friday afternoon, Phoenix has accounted for 84% of all spread bets and 85% of the spread handle. 

Given those metrics, oddsmakers have moved the Suns from -4.5 at open to -5.5. 

Moneyline wagers show a similar story. 

Although the Suns have received a slight minority of tickets – Sacramento has received 51% of all moneyline bets currently – the handle is lopsided in Phoenix’s favor. 

As of this writing, head coach Frank Vogel’s side has received 63% of all dollars to win the game outright. Based on those percentages, Phoenix has risen from -190 to -210. 

In terms of the total, interesting movement has occurred in spite of the betting direction. 

The over has received 69% of all bets along with 67% of the handle to clear 225.5 points, the opening number. 

However, the total has fallen a point to 224.5 points despite the under receiving a third of the total handle.
