NBA Betting – 2010-2011 Sacramento Kings Preview

The Sacramento Kings didn’t win many games last season but they were at least a .500 team against the NBA betting point spread.

The Kings were fun to watch at times as they had the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans.  The Kings are not going to make the playoffs this season but they could win more games than they did a year ago and be worth an NBA bet.

Last Year’s Record 25-57 SU, 39-39-4 ATS
The Kings won just 25 games straight up last season but they were a team you could bet at times. The Kings were almost always underdogs and they had some value against the point spread. That might be the case again this season.

Projected Starting Lineup
Guard – Tyreke Evans
Guard – Beno Udrih
Center – Samuel Dalembert
Forward – Omri Casspi
Forward – Carl Landry

The Kings have an exciting player in Evans and some good young talent. Unfortunately they do no have a good arena and the fan base is dwindling.  It could be that the Kings will be moving out of Sacramento. This year the Kings should be worth watching although they will still not be a winning team.  Evans has a lot of talent and Edrih is a good guard who can also score.  The team took DeMarcus Cousins in the NBA Draft and he is likely to be an all or nothing player.  He has a ton of talent but whether the Kings can harness it or not is a huge question. The Kings will try and outscore teams but that usually doesn’t work in the NBA unless you have a lot of talent. Head coach Paul Westphal’s teams don’t play defense so the Kings will be up and down this season. When they are hitting their shots they will cover the spread but when they go cold they will get blown out. The trick when you make your NBA bet is predicting the hot and cold streaks. The Kings have nothing on the bench so when Evans goes cold they are going to struggle.  Sacramento could be a team to take over the total and when they are getting double digits they could also be worth taking against the NBA betting line at the Sbg global sportsbook.
