Basketball betting expectations are not high for the Sacramento Kings as they have become a perennial laughing stock with NBA betting handicappers.
The Sacramento Kings will host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday with a starting time of 10 PM ET. Sports-Gambling will have the side and total odds on this game so be sure an open your account for all of the action.
The Golden State Warriors were just 9-17 straight up and 12-13-1 with the NBA odds. The Warriors went under the total in 18 of their first 26 games including 11 of their 15 road games. Golden State was a break even 7-7-1 against the spread on the road.
The Warriors were suffering from a terrible slump in which they scored just 1 straight up win in 9 games from November 30 through December 18 although they did get the money in 4 of those games while going under the total 6 times.
Golden State has maintained its traditional personality of having a strong offense and weak defense as they rank 12th in the NBA for scoring with 100.5 points per game while ranking 27th in defense while allowing 106.3 points per game. Monta Ellis was shooting lights out with a team best 24.5 points per game.
With new ownership that brought in a new logo and snazzy new uniforms there is hope that eventually the Warriors will break free of their losing ways and develop into a contender.
Sacramento had a record of 5-19 straight up and 7-17 with the NBA lines as their franchise has fallen from perennial contender status less than a decade ago to being a mere shell of its former self. The Kings won just 1 of 10 games from November 27 through December 17 while getting the money in just 3 of those games.
Sacramento was just 4-9 against the spread at home and went under the total in 14 of their first 24 games. The Kings ranked near the bottom of the basketball betting charts for both total offense and defense and lacked the star appeal that is so important in the NBA. Lack of money, a revenue generating arena, and committed ownership is killing this franchise.
