The Rockets have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Kings but they are only 2-7-1 against the basketball betting pointspread in those games. Let’s take a look at more basketball betting numbers for this Thursday night matchup.
Basketball betting scheduling information tells us that both teams are in the first half of back-to-backs as the Kings are at the Clippers tomorrow while Houston is at Golden State. NBA betting trends show that the Kings have won three of the last five home games against the Rockets. They are 2-2-1 against the basketball odds in those games. The teams have met twice so far this season, both times in Houston, and the Rockets won both games straight up but did not cover the basketball odds. Houston won 94-82 and 107-96 but they were laying 13 points each time.
Houston has been just about .500 on the road this season in terms of basketball betting. The Rockets continue to play solid defense, ranking in the Top 10 in the league as basketball betting stats indicate. Offensively the Rockets are just average but they do enough to have a chance versus the basketball betting pointspread on most nights. Yao Ming and Ron Artest have led the way on offense for the Rockets.
Sacramento has not been very good at home this season in terms of basketball betting. The Kings don’t get quite as many points at home as on the road and this season the Kings have been better versus the basketball betting pointspread on the road. Sacramento has an okay offense but their defense is terrible. That combination is just not going to get it done most of the time versus the NBA betting number.
The last three games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. Overall in the past ten games the over/under NBA betting numbers are split at 5-5. At Sacramento, the over is 3-2 in the last five NBA betting situations. The Kings have been a slight over team at home this season as basketball betting stats show.
