The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times, and last season it returned a whopping $4,280 on its top-rated NBA spread and money line picks. It's already returned almost $1,800 in profit on all its top-rated NBA picks during the 2019-20 season and entered Week 11 on a blistering 26-13 run on all top-rated NBA spread picks. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Now, it has simulated Kings vs. Magic 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning under, and it's also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in well over 50 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
The Kings took a 127-106 defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday. They led in the third quarter and held Giannis Antetokounmpo to a season-low 13 points but could not hold off the Bucks. The top scorers for the Kings were Harrison Barnes (19 points) and De'Aaron Fox (19 points).
Marvin Bagley III has missed the last eight games because of left foot soreness. Richaun Holmes has missed two games with a shoulder injury and Bogdan Bogdanovic has missed four games with an ankle issue. Barnes is listed as day-to-day with a right leg injury. Bagley is expected back for Monday's game.
Meanwhile, Orlando fell 98-94 to Phoenix in its last outing. Evan Fournier had 28 points. It was the fourth time since Dec. 27 that the Magic scored fewer than 100 points since Dec. 27 and they were outscored 8-0 in the final minute.
D.J. Augustin (knee) and Aaron Gordon (calf) missed Friday's game. Both players will be game-time decisions tonight.
