Kings 76ers Betting Tips – Kings And Sixers Look To Gain Traction In February

When the Sacramento Kings play the Philadelphia 76ers this Friday night, they'll know that with the arrival of February comes a time to make a push before the NBA's All-Star break.

Why Sacramento Will Win

The high-stakes poker games that take place on a nightly basis in the NBA require the ability to play with almost robot-like consistency. Sacramento has been unable to generate that consistency against really good teams, but the Kings have been good over the past three week in taking advantage of matchups against losing teams.

The Kings are 4-5 in their past nine games, which isn't particularly shabby for a team that is 17-29 and only 1.5 games ahead of the two worst teams in the Western Conference, the Phoenix Suns and New Orleans Hornets. The Kings have enjoyed comparative success in their past nine games because they've been able to beat the weak teams on their schedule. Sacramento swept its two-game season series with the Washington Wizards while beating Cleveland and Charlotte as well.

The Charlotte win came on the road, proving that the Kings can sometimes put up a good fight away from home. It's not as though this team is a home-court force that shrivels on the road; the Kings are a bit more balanced (and unpredictable). They can certainly go into Philadelphia and beat the 18-26 Sixers, who are plainly languishing without center Andrew Bynum on the floor. Sacramento can play this game even in the low post and win with the scoring punch of its wing players. That's the formula for a victory, thousands of miles away from California.

Why Philadelphia Will Win

People in the football betting world who don't pay all that much attention to NBA basketball could probably still tell you that the 76ers should be able to handle the Kings. Sacramento might be 4-5 in its past nine games, but the Kings are 1-4 in their last five contests, having lost four straight from Jan. 21 through Jan. 26 before beating one of the doormats of the Eastern Conference, the Washington Wizards, this past Monday.

It's true that the Sixers are a losing team, but within the ranks of losing teams in the Eastern Conference, the Sixers are one of the better ones. Boston is the only losing team with a better record than Philadelphia. The Sixers are just three games out of a playoff spot and know that if they can get healthier, they will become a much more formidable squad. Philadelphia is no Washington, Cleveland, or Charlotte.

This team has more quality players than any of those three ballclubs. The Sixers own more heft and potency than the teams Sacramento has exploited in recent weeks. That matters.

Who Will Win

This is going to be a close contest, but can Sacramento play consistently well on this extended road trip? The Kings do not deserve a bettor's trust in this spot. Take Philadelphia.
