Betting Predictions For Kings Nets – Nets Look To Get Back On Track At Home Versus Struggling Kings

Posted by Craig Parsons on 1/2/2013 6:04:49 PM

When the Brooklyn Nets were assembled for a successful debut season in 2012-13, it appeared on paper as though they would be legitimate sports betting contenders in the Eastern Conference power structure. While that hasn’t happened to this point, the Nets still feel as though they have the potential to challenge the best in the East for conference supremacy as they continue to develop chemistry and an identity as a team. Getting in to the postseason will be the first test for a Brooklyn team that is right in the thick of the playoff race, and it will be important to capitalize on opportunities at home, including this Saturday’s game against the Sacramento Kings.

The Kings have won just once in 14 tries on the road this season, and head to Brooklyn at the tail end of a four-game road trip. Sacramento’s only win as the visiting team came back in December against Portland, and they entered this trip having lost six-straight away from home.

With talent like Tyreke Evans, DeMarcus Cousins, and Isaiah Thomas it is only a matter of time before the Kings take the next step. However, while this Sacramento roster is talented, it is also very young and incomplete, which has led to a number of rough nights this season. It certainly hasn’t helped that Evans has been out with an injured knee, and the lack of a pure scorer from the outside has taken its toll. Cousins has been solid inside but very inconsistent, and the Kings have not defended well enough to make up for long scoring droughts that can plague them at times.

The Nets have also gone through their share of inconsistencies at the offensive end of the floor, but a veteran group that ranks fifth in the NBA in points allowed has been able to fight through them to remain above .500. Part of the problem in Brooklyn has been a lack of efficiency from the team’s top outside scorers in Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, each of whom have struggled from the field. Brook Lopez has averaged a team-high 18.3 points per game while Reggie Evans has helped on the glass with a team-high 8.2 rebounds, and the Nets will really have to clean things up on the glass and at the defensive end in order to keep their playoff hopes alive until the scorers can get on track.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While Brooklyn has struggled to come together as a team, the Kings have been absolutely awful on the road this season, and there is no reason to think things will magically come together for them in this game. The Nets have enough talent that they should continue to win the games they are expected to the rest of the way despite needing to improve in several areas, and this game will be the perfect opportunity for them to secure a much-needed online betting win.
