It could be a tough spot for the Kings in NBA betting since they had to play last night in Utah against the Jazz. Here is a look at this matchup between the Warriors and Kings.
Basketball betting could get some attention in this matchup since it will be televised on NBA-TV. It is the first of a back-to-back for the Warriors since they play at home tomorrow night against Minnesota. The Warriors have won six of the last ten meetings against the Kings but they are just 3-7 against the NBA betting number in those games. The teams met four times last year and they split the four meetings. Somewhat surprisingly, they each went 1-1 on their home court. The Warriors won 105-100 in Sacramento but in the other game they lost 115-98. Both games in Sacramento went under the basketball betting total. In fact, five of the last six meetings in Sacramento between the two teams have gone under in basketball betting.
The Warriors have played just one game away from home this basketball betting season as they were blown out in Phoenix. It is a similar story for Golden State this season versus the basketball betting line as they can score points but they can’t stop anyone. The team is in the top 10 in points as basketball betting stats show but they are near the bottom of the league in points allowed. Monta Ellis was leading the team in scoring early in the basketball betting year.
The Kings are looking like one of the worst teams in the league again this season. Their only good game in NBA betting was the overtime victory at home against Memphis. Kevin Martin is an excellent player but there are not any other impact players for Sacramento. Perhaps rookie Tyreke Evans can turn into a player who can impact the NBA betting results but so far the Kings just don’t look very good. They are really struggling on defense which means this game against Golden State could see a lot of points in basketball betting. The Kings are normally getting a lot of points which means they are a threat to cover the basketball betting pointspread but that is not the case in this game as the basketball betting odds are close.
