After snapping a four-game losing streak with a win over the Jazz their last time out, the 49-29 Golden State Warriors now turn their attention to the 29-49 Sacramento Kings tonight at 9:00 PM EST.

Stephen Curry will miss the remainder of the regular season and the Warriors have struggled without their star point guard, going just 2-7 over their last nine games. They have a one-game lead over the Mavericks for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference playoffs and need to string a few wins together as we approach the postseason.

For their part, the Kings have won four of five and are 4-1-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last six.

Can Sacramento stay hot at home or will Golden State build off the momentum from the Utah win to emerge victorious yet again?

Let's check out the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook, as we find value in this Warriors vs Kings matchup:

Warriors vs Kings Prediction and Pick

The Kings have been impressive of late, but their success hasn't exactly came against good competition. They have a pair of narrow wins over the Rockets and two more against the Magic and Pacers. All three of those teams rank in the bottom six in net rating on the year. The one time they faced a good team in the last two weeks, they got blown out by 23 against the Heat.

We call that a paper tiger in the business and Golden State hopes to collapse Sacramento's house of cards today. But the Warriors are really struggling, ranking 24th in net rating over their last 10 contests.

Look deeper though, and you realize Golden State has had a brutal schedule. They have losses to the Suns, Grizzlies, Heat, and Celtics over that stretch, all of whom rank in the top six in net rating.

The Warriors have covered the spread in two straight and I think they're starting to turn a corner. Jordan Poole has been a revelation and with Draymond Green back in the fold, they should welcome the step down in competition that the Kings provide.

This line feels like bait. The Kings are hot and catching 5.5 points at home? Surely they'll cover! But that's what the sportsbooks want us to think. I'm trusting the Warriors in a critical spot to stay afloat in the Western Conference playoff race.

Pick: Warriors -5.5 (-110)
