Jazz Kings Betting Predictions – Jazz Look To Dance Around Kings At Sacramento Saturday

Posted by Craig Parsons on 2/7/2013 6:07:36 PM

While the Utah Jazz continue to look ahead to the teams in front of them in the Western Conference standings, it will be just as important to remember the sports betting teams behind them and how dangerous they could be down the stretch. Currently seventh in the standings, the Jazz are just two games up on the Portland Trail Blazers in 9th, and four games ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers in 10th. There is still quite a ways to go for a Utah team looking to get in to the playoffs, and they certainly can’t afford to lose any games they are expected to win the rest of the way. That includes a date at the Sacramento Kings this Saturday, where nothing less than a win is acceptable.

The Kings have been awful all season, but particularly of late with four-straight losses and eight in their last 10 overall. It hasn’t helped that their most talented player continues to draw negative attention and earn ejections in DeMarcus Cousins, especially considering how hard the team is trying to attract fans to the “Sleep Train Arena”.

A fantastic record at home is the only reason the Jazz are even in contention at this point, as they have been awful on the road with just nine wins in 26 games. Utah has the weapons to put up numbers as evidence by an offense that ranks 11th in the NBA in scoring, but will need to do a better job from the outside and work on how to best use their many big men inside. With Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and Marvin Williams inside, Utah has more than enough options down low, but could use some help with its perimeter shooting as the team is very thin outside of Mo Williams and Gordon Hayward. Perhaps the best thing that the Jazz can do is trade for another guard or wing that can help space the floor, but right now they have to concentrate on what they have.

With so many issues to deal with, the Kings could have at least used Cousins as a trade chip if he could get his act together. However, despite a team-high 17.2 points and 10 rebounds per game, Cousins continues to make crucial mental errors at both ends of the floor in addition to his work on the officials, and his lack of intensity on defense is a big reason Sacramento ranks 29th in the NBA in points allowed. With rumors swirling about a potential move to Seattle, this franchise needs to do what it can to establish a sense of stability, with Cousins and Tyreke Evans as the two central talents on the floor.

Even when they are at their best in terms of concentration it isn’t as though the Kings have the talent to handle what Utah brings in a must-win situation, so don’t expect this game to stay close for long. The Jazz cannot afford any slips the rest of the way with each online betting win meaning so much, so look for them to take care of business on the road this weekend.
