Minnesota Timberwolves at Sacramento on Suanday March 14

November 30, 2010 NBA Basketball

NBA betting on Sunday includes a matchup in Sacramento as the Kings host the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The teams have split their last ten meetings overall while the Kings are 6-4 against the basketball betting odds in those games.  Here is a look at this Sunday matchup between the Timberwolves and the Kings.

NBA betting has seen the teams split their two games this season with both teams winning big at home.  The Kings won 120-100 in Sacramento while the Timberwolves won 112-96 in Minnesota.  This is the first game of a four-game road trip for Minnesota. They are just 2-4 in their last six games at Sacramento.

Neither one of these teams wins a lot of games but they can cover the spread sometimes. Minnesota still has a losing record away from home this season.  They are 15-17 vs. the NBA betting odds in road games.  Minnesota is not very good on defense as they are right near the bottom of the league. Their offense is not that much better but at least they do have Al Jefferson and some other scoring threats including Corey Brewer.  Minnesota doesn’t have quite as many scoring options as Sacramento though.

Sacramento is just about a .500 team vs. the NBA betting odds this season.  The Kings have a little bit better overall stats than Minnesota but not by a lot.  The Kings do have Tyreke Evans though and he can impact a game at any moment.  The Kings are a very young team but they do have some talent.  They have more scoring options than Minnesota and that is why they are favored in NBA betting in this contest. The Kings have been about a 50-50 proposition at home versus the number this season.  They are likely to be the choice though since they are at home and have the more potent offense.

The Timberwolves and Kings are two of the youngest teams in the NBA.  Both are looking to the future. The Kings seem to have some better overall options but neither of these teams is going to contend right away. The Kings do have the potential superstar in Evans and that gives them the edge not only in this basketball betting game but long-term.  Sacramento also has some other players who can make an impact including Beno Udrih who is capable of scoring in double-digits on a nightly basis.
