Basketball betting handicappers see little appeal with the Sacramento Kings as they are among the worst teams in the Western Conference online basketball betting standings.
The Sacramento Kings will host the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night with a start time of 10 PM ET. Be sure and have your account open and ready at Sports Gambling for side and total odds on this Western Conference matchup.
Dallas had a record of 35-15 straight up and 27-21-2 with the NBA lines. The Mavericks were 15-8 against the spread on the road with 13 of their away games going over the total. Dallas ranked 20th in the NBA for scoring offense but was an impressive 6th in the league for scoring defense.
Those rankings reveal a revamped team with a new personality that is dramatically different from the normal run and gun style that Dallas fans and handicappers have been accustomed to over the years. The Mavericks were led by Dirk Nowitzki’s 23.4 points per game while Jason Kidd had 8.4 assists per outing and Tyson Chandler was cleaning the glass with 9.5 rebounds per game.
Dallas got the money 5 consecutive times from January 29 through February 5 and was in the 2nd spot in the Western Conference playoff race.
Sacramento was a hopeless 12-35 straight up and 19-27-1 with the NBA betting odds. The Kings paid out in just 9 out of 26 home games and were 13-13 on over unders as a host. Sacramento has been showing better board value as of late as odds makers are adding extra value to their price in order to attract action their way as they are an otherwise unappealing team.
This is the second meeting of the season between these two teams. Dallas scored a 105-103 win at Sacramento on December 4 but the Kings got the cash as 7.5 point home dogs as the game went over the total.
This series has gone over the number in the last 3 meetings between the two teams. Dallas has gotten the money in 8 of their last 13 decisions at Sacramento and the last two meetings between these teams at Sacramento have gone over the basketball betting total.
