The San Antonio Spurs are on the road out of the All-Star break against the Sacramento Kings, and they may have a chance to pull off a road upset.


Well, Domantas Sabonis has been listed as doubtful by the Kings with an illness, a major loss for the team. Still, the Spurs are set at 8.5-point underdogs in the game. 

I’d rather look to the prop market when betting on this matchup, and there is a play for Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama that I think is too good to pass up.

Let’s break down the props for this game: 

Spurs vs. Kings best NBA prop bets

  • Victor Wembanyama OVER 23.5 points
  • Malik Monk OVER 19.5 points

Victor Wembanyama OVER 23.5 points

This could be a great matchup for Wembanyama, as the Spurs big man has scored 24 or more points in back-to-back games and should see some easier matchups without Sabonis in the lineup. 

The Kings may decide to play small rather than use Alex Len in big minutes at that spot. Len has played over 10 minutes just one time in his last five games. 

Wemby scored 27 points on 26 shots in his last meeting with the Kings, and he’s taken 16.6 field goal attempts and 5.2 free throw attempts per game since Jan. 20. Over that stretch, the rookie is shooting 48.5 percent from the field and averaging 22.3 points per game. 

Now, he gets a Kings defense that ranks in the bottom 10 in the NBA in defensive rating at home. That’s led to the team hitting the OVER in 16 of 23 home games. Don’t be shocked if Wemby puts up some big numbers tonight. 

Malik Monk OVER 19.5 points

Malik Monk was red hot going into the All-Star break, scoring 20 or more points in six of his last eight games. 

Over his strong eight-game stretch, Monk is averaging 20.4 points per game while shooting 52.1 percent from the field. 

He’s also seen his volume going up, attempting at least 11 shots in every game. Before that, he had gone six games without double-digit shot attempts. 

If Monk’s usage increases without Sabonis, he’s a great bet to put up another 20 piece.
