The Sacramento Kings play host to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Golden 1 Center on Saturday night.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been in great form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games and they will be full of confidence after taking down the league-best Warriors in a 113-104 road win on Thursday. Joel Embiid led the team with 26 points, 20 rebounds and five assists, Ben Simmons added 26 points with eight rebounds and six assists while JJ Redick chipped in with 15 points. As a team, the 76ers shot just 46 percent from the field and 12 of 36 from the 3-point line, but they were able to hold off the Warriors after taking control in an explosive third quarter where they outscored the Warriors by 42-26. With the impressive win, Philadelphia improved to 34-18 overall and 13-13 on the road.
Meanwhile, the Sacramento Kings have been in decent shape as they’ve won six of their last 10 games and they will be looking to stay hot after blowing past the Hawks in a 135-113 home win on Wednesday. Harry Giles led the team with 20 points on 10 of 12 shooting off the bench, Buddy Hield added 18 points while Marvin Bagley III chipped in with 17 points and 12 rebounds. As a team, the Kings shot a healthy 54 percent from the field and 11 of 35 from the 3-point line as they cruised to victory after dominating the Hawks in the first half by 67-53. With the easy win, Sacramento improved to 26-25 overall and 15-10 at home.
Looking at the betting trends, the 76ers are 43-21-1 ATS in their last 65 against the Western Conference and 23-8 ATS in their last 31 against the NBA Pacfic. The Kings are 6-0 ATS in their last six home games, 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record and 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600.
Head to head, the over is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings, the 76ers are 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall and 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Sacramento.
The Kings have been a little hit and miss but they looked great in their blowout win over the Hawks on Wednesday, but the 76ers have been one of the hottest teams in the league lately and they’re coming fresh off their best win of the season after beating the Warriors on Thursday. The 76ers are 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Sacramento and I think that trend continues here as the 76ers stay hot.
