The 76ers are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 2-11-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 8-21-1 ATS in their last 30 vs. NBA Atlantic. The 76ers are 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Sacramento and 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings overall.
The Sacramento Kings have been very solid on their home court and have the offense to pull away in this game. The 76ers are playing better with Smith in the lineup, but I don't see that being enough. Give me Sacramento by double digits.
