Philadelphia 76ers vs. Sacramento Kings Betting Odds & Line Movement
There is no line for this contest at Philadelphia Sportsbooks as of now, but with Sacramento dropping seven of its past eight games, Philadelphia is a sure bet to be the favorite. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons will miss the game. The Sixers have won four of the last five meetings between these teams, including a 129-105 win in March 2021.
Notes On The Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers (9-8) have had a long trip thus far, losing three of their first four games on this six-game road trek. After winning eight of 10 to start the season, the Sixers have lost six of seven. It’s been a difficult time for the Sixers, who are 1-5 ATS in their past seven NBA betting games.
The 76ers fell by seven in Portland on Saturday, as they shot 50.6 percent from the field, including 90.5 percent from the line. The Trail Blazers hit 50% of their shots and all 23 of their free throws for a five-point first quarter edge that was too great for Philadelphia to overcome.
The 76ers rank 14th in points scored per game with 108.1, which is great shooting. They are third in three-point percentage (37.2 percent), second in field-goal percentage (47.0 percent), and third in free-throw shooting (82.5%).The difficulty is that the 76ers are 29th in rebounds per game (41.7), having taken too few shots.
Notes On The Sacramento Kings
The 76ers (4-15) and the Kings (6-11) are among the teams that have struggled. Sacramento lost seven of its past eight games, including three in a row by more than 10 points.The Kings are 6-13 ATS in their past 19 games, including 1-7 ATS in their past eight.
The Kings were down by only four points at the end of the third quarter against Utah on Saturday, but a 14-point lead for the Jazz in the fourth quarter caused them to lose, 123-105.In the loss, Sacramento shot 45.1 percent from the field and made 13 of 21 attempts, but they had trouble at the line and were only 10-31 (32.3%). Utah outscored Sacramento 52-35 in the paint.
The Sacramento Kings rank 10th in points per game (109.1). This is a poor shooting team, ranking 16th in field-goal percentage (45.0%) and 20th in three-point percentage at 33.8%. This isn’t a good rebounding team either, as it ranks 24th in the league with 44.4%.
Pick & Prediction: Under
The Sixers are still the superior squad, even without Simmons and Embiid. They must fight to get more hoops in games, but they have dominated the Kings recently and can make far more shots than Sacramento.
Keep an eye on the combination of Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond. The two players combined for 28 points in the loss to Portland, and I wouldn’t be shocked if they do it again.
It’s too soon to tell what the total will be, but Sacramento has been steamrolled in recent weeks, failing to score 110 points in four of their past five games. That includes two losses where they were kept below 100.
The Philadelphia offense has not been good in the last seven games. It only scored 113 points or less. The defense has given up more than 118 points in the last six games. That will help to make this game closer.
