Sacramento Kings vs Philadelphia 76ers prediction

The Philadelphia 76ers will be without Joel Embiid for this game, and I’m not interested in them when they don’t have their star, as they’ve had issues in the past, mainly in the half court offense. The Sacramento Kings are also starting to heat up with wins in 6 of their last 8 games, and they’re as healthy as any team in the league. Yes, the 76ers are at home where they’ve been great, and they’ve won 9 straight games against the Kings. Still, the Kings should win this game with the 76ers playing without their best player. Give me the Kings in this near pick em spot.
