Basketball betting doesn’t get any better than on Christmas Day when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Boston Celtics in a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals.
NBA betting scheduling information shows that it is the fourth game of a five-game road trip for the Raptors and the first of a back-to-back as they are at Portland tomorrow. Let’s take a look at the basketball odds matchup between the Raptors and Kings for Friday.
Basketball betting history somewhat supports the Kings in this matchup. Sacramento is 6-4 both straight up and against the NBA betting pointspread in their last 10 games against Toronto. The Kings have won the last five meetings against Toronto in Sacramento and they are 4-1 against the Basketball betting number. Last season the Kings won 106-100 at home against the Raptors while Toronto won 116-91 in Toronto as basketball betting results show.
Basketball betting stats tell us that the Raptors have been a big disappointment this season, especially at home. On the road they have held their own in basketball betting but they have been a bust at home. Basketball betting experts believed that Toronto was expected to be better with the addition of Jermaine O’Neal but it has not happened. Chris Bosh continues to pace the Raptors in scoring as basketball betting stats show but for some reason the Raptors are not winning games. Normally a coaching change will spark a team but the Raptors have been even worse since they fired head coach Sam Mitchell.
Sacramento also went through a coaching change as they got rid of Reggie Theus. The Kings weren’t expected to contend for the playoffs so the coaching change is not as big a deal. Kevin Martin still leads the team in scoring as basketball betting stats show but he rarely gets much help. John Salmons is having a nice year and that is about the only positive you can find about Sacramento. Having said that, the Kings can still cover the NBA betting pointspread, as they are right around the .500 mark this season versus the basketball betting number.
Four of the last six meetings between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting total.
