Heat Kings Betting Predictions – Heat Take Down Distracted Kings

Miami Heat @ Sacramento Kings – Saturday January 12, 2013 10:00PM EST

As if things were not bad enough for the Sacramento Kings, now the online betting sites are reporting that the Kings may be moving to Seattle next season. At some point, the overabundance of California-based basketball teams was going to make someone the odd team out. The Warriors looked to be in trouble in Oakland, but the team has been competitive the past couple of years and has managed to dodge the relocation bullet. But it has been a long time since Sacramento has been a playoff team, and it may be time to give the franchise a new lease on life in a city that has already shown an affinity for NBA basketball.

The best online betting sites see that the Miami Heat is leading its division, but the Heat is not dominating the Eastern Conference as many expected it to. Miami is the defending NBA champion and the fans in Miami are expecting a dynasty from Lebron James and Dwyane Wade. But the team is not playing like a dominating dynasty in this regular season. The confidence and the swagger are still there for the entire Miami team, but the results are not what people had expected. The Heat should find success on its western road trip, but people will continue to question Miami until it shows that it is the absolute class of the Eastern Conference.

Why the Kings Will Win

Every sportsbook expert knows how hard it is for a team to play when it is distracted. Not only do these rumors of relocation distract the players, they will also confuse and distract the fans as well. If Sacramento has been strong anywhere this season, it has been in its own building. The mood in the building will be a little tense as this is one of the first games played since the relocation rumors started. But it could be energy that the Kings use to help swing the momentum in its favor.

Why the Heat Will Win

As with any championship caliber team, fans can expect the Heat to win the games against struggling opponents. Miami has feasted on teams with sub-.500 records this season, and that is the category the Kings fall into. Miami will stay focused on this game and do what it needs to do to come out of Sacramento with the win. But this one may be a bit more difficult that the Heat had been counting on.

The Bottom Line

Something changes in a team when it starts to hear that it may be changing home cities next season. The team feels that it has something to prove to the people that are letting it go. That is what creates the strange and tense relationship between the team and the town it is leaving. The Heat will be caught in between that crossfire, but Miami should still come out with the win.

Pick: Miami Heat
