The Line: Philadelphia 76ers +3.5 -- Over/Under: 206 See the Latest Odds
The Sacramento Kings travel to the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia 76ers tonight.
The Kings have won three of their last five games but they'll be looking to bounce back after last night's 101-95 overtime loss at Washington. DeMarcus Cousins dominated with 36 points, 20 rebounds and four assists, Rudy Gay chipped in with 18 points while Ty Lawson added 12 points off the bench, but the Kings simply went ice-cold in overtime where they were outscored by 9-3. Both teams shot in the low 40's in term of percentage, but there was a real disparity in the 3-point shooting as the Kings connected on three of 21 while the Wizards made 10 of 25 thanks to Bradley Beal's seven. With the loss, Sacramento falls to 7-11 on the season and 3-6 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Sixers will be hoping to avoid a fifth straight loss after falling to the Raptors by 122-95 in a blowout on Monday. Robert Covington broke out of his slump and drained six threes en route to a team-high 20 points but other than 15 points from Jahlil Okafor, the Sixers were always drifting away from the Raptors as the game wore on. Joel Embiid was rested for that game because it was the second night of a back-to-back set, so he is expected to be available for tonight's matchup.
Looking at the betting trends, the Kings are 6-0 ATS in their last six games following a loss and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall, while the Sixers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games and 5-0 ATS in their last five home games against a team with a road record below .400.
Head to head, the Kings are 4-17 ATS in the last 21 meetings and just 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Philadelphia.
The Kings really shouldn't have too much trouble beating this Sixers team on any given night, but they're always so unreliable and haven't fared well ATS when playing Philly. With that being said, the Sixers have been surprisingly good at home so I'm going for the upset here.
