Another good winning tip yesterday as the team of Golden State Warriors was the dominant team on the parquet against the rivals of Denver. Actually, we were right about our decision to share with you our final opinion. The next competitive game which we liked is coming again form NBA between the teams of Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings.
Sacramento Kings were in action Monday night as they faced the Spurs at home. Los Angeles snapped a three game-slide by beating the Nuggets with an astonishing 106:98 at home three days ago. The home team is 10th in the league in scoring offence as they put up 107 points per game. Los Angeles is 3rd in rebounding with 46.2 per contest and 8th in assists with 23.3 per game. The Lakers stand 29th in the league in scoring defence as they allow 111.6 points per basketball game.
Sacramento Kings are playing their second game of a back to back here and they have some issues in their rotation. The Kings are the league’s worst offensive team with those guys: if one or both guys are out, they’re much worse. We are backing to Under 201.5 points.
Our next pick which we will predict is coming from the USA, NBA between the teams of Chicago Bulls and Sacramento Kings. Both clubs will take a place in United Center at Chicago, USA. The guests have alternated losses and win dating back to November 20 and they most recently fell to Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Sacramento rookie guard De’Aaron Fox scored in single-digits for third consecutive games, when his team lost at home to the Milwaukee Bucks 112:87 earlier this week. Fox has started the last seven contests and nine overall this season. That means he has come off the bench on 12 occasions. Chicago Bulls is making a one-game trip to Denver Nuggets before returning to the United Center to host the Sacramento team. Two of its three victories this season have come in Chicago. It is a season that was bad before it even got underway, and not just because Jimmy Butler was shipped off to Minnesota Timberwolves.
Fox is struggling, but the Kings team can still succeed even when that is the case. He is one of four players averaging in double-figures, joining Zach Randolph, Buddy Hield, and Willie Cauley-Stein. Four other Kings are contributing more than eight points per outing. They should be able to take advantage over a Chicago squad that is not only terrible but also playing on back-to-back days. Also, we expect to see a tough game on either side. Over 193 points it looks a very great pick for this amazing contest.
The next game today is going to be very interesting for watching. Today New Orleans Pelicans will meet Sacramento Kings in a game this evening in the New Orleans Arena at New Orleans. The away team is coming to this game after 82 - 112 lose at home against the team of Utah Jazz. Sacramento Kings beat New Orleans Pelicans at home with 105 - 99 in аn amazing game a few weeks ago.
Both teams are playing terrible and we really do not know why is that. Usually, each season both teams were playing around the playoff zone with real chances of reaching the playoffs but this year they are performing very bad. The situation with the Kings is somehow better if you look at Pelicans, which team is simply horrible.
From this game, we think that Sacramento will probably take this game as they are the better team and they will make the situation in Pelicans even worse. For us the better result for this game will be again a small win for Sacramento with +4.5 points Asian handicap. The better market here is to try and search surprise here.
NBA action on Wednesday evening and Milwaukee Bucks will play with Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center. The Bucks had a game in Portland on Tuesday night and prior to that game they had won eight of their previous ten appearances, while the Kings lose a game with 118-102 against San Antonio. They have lose ten of their last twelve games.
The Bucks have really been playing well, as they have won eight of their last ten meetings and that has helped them move into the 7th position in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. The previous five games between these teams are finished over 207 points in a row.
Sacramento Kings are just unstoppable at home. Still there is a risk taking a home win with this big handicap line. However, the guests have nothing to lose and must play high tempo. The Kings have to try to score points and stay close in the game. But we can believe there will see effective meeting. Our prediction for this appearance between Sacramento Kings and Milwaukee Buck is over 200.5 points.
Sacramento is just 1.5 games out of the last playoff spot in the Western Conference, while Minnesota is 3.5 games behind eight-placed Denver. It will be opening game between this these team.
However, the Kings are in rebuild mode after getting rid of DeMarcus Cousins this past week for New Orleans’ first-round pick along with Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and a second-round pick. Minnesota outrebounded Houston by 27 on Saturday and they scored a season-high 130 points. But they allowed 142 points and committed a season-high 25 turnovers in another loss. Young center Karl-Anthony Towns scored 37 points and grabbed 22 rebounds for the T-Wolves. Guard Andrew Wiggins added 30 points on 11-of-22 shooting.
The Kings lost an All-Star center in Cousins and that is going to hurt them on both ends. Well, at least on the offensive end. He was not the most motivated defender in the league. Minnesota has gone over in 11 of their last 13 overall and 10 of their last 11 playing on 1 days rest. Minnesota shouldn’t be laying that many points on the road. They are talented, but basically a two-mean team of Wiggins and Towns. The Kings have some youngsters in Cauley-Stein and Hield that might be ready to take off. And the T-Wolves still play no defense.
After the two-three losses from this week, we are heading towards the weekend where we saw amazing derby games and we have no patience to see them and make some predictions. But before that, there are a few good games before that and the first game is from tonight.
The NBA was always amazing for watching and some of the teams this season is proving that. One of the teams which we are going to predict - Indiana Pacers is such team, as they are very unpredictable and till the last point you have no idea what is going to happen. Actually, this is a big minus but not each time. One plus from this case can be the fact that because of the unpredictable circumstances the odds of their games are always big.
The same is here against Sacramento Kings tonight. There is no doubt that Pacers are the better team but the bookies are giving them 1.95 odds. Moreover, they managed to stop the losing streak and in the past game they won against Pelicans at home, returning on the winning road. We think that here the game will be tough, but Pacers should not have problems in taking the game even with difference, if they are fit enough.
Oklahoma City Thunder lost a few games against not that quality opponents but they can be still sure about their place in the playoffs after the end of the regular season. After all they have players like Russell Westbrook who can score 30-40% of the points and make his team win the game.
Tonight, Oklahoma are playing against Sacramento, which team is not among the best teams in the NBA and we think that they will be overclasses by the Thunders. We will see what will happen but we expect another amazing game by Westbrook and eventually to play much better than the team of the Kings. In the last game Oklahoma lost form Minnesota Timberwolves and we are sure that they will be looking for a good performance here.
The statistics are not very good for the team from Oklahoma as in the past 5 games the most wins go for Sacramento Kings, but this is one more reason to believe that the negative serie will be stopped with one good and positive result for OCK.
The next game from the NBA for which we are going to write a betting preview is between the teams of Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings. Currently, both teams are strongly underachieving in NBA, as this season they have in total 11 wins (4 for Dallas and 7 for Sacramento).
Both teams are playing terrible and we really do not know why is that. Usually, each season both teams were playing around the playoff zone with real chances of reaching the playoffs but this year they are performing very bad. The situation with Kings is somehow better if you look at Dallas, which team is simply horrible. They have 4 wins as one is after overtime and they are with almost miserable chances of not finishing on the last place in their conference. Last season Dallas managed to play in the playoffs, while Sacramento did not.
Now it looks like that it will be different. Sacramento Kings are again on the same position just like last season while this time Dallas are even no close to not being the last team in the Western Conference. From this game, we think that Sacramento will probably take this game as they are the better team and they will make the situation in Dallas even worse.
