The Houston Rockets will be on the road to take on the Sacramento Kings on Friday, January 14th.
The tip-off is set for 10:00 ET Golden 1 Center.
Sacramento started off as a 6 point favorite and that number is now down to 5.5. The total has gone from 237.5 to 239.
The Rockets have played quite poorly this year. It is going to be a very long season for them.
This is a team that lost three of their last four games. It always seems like they have some kind of losing streak going on, which should not surprise people.
When you think of the worst teams in basketball, this is one that comes to mind. They have a long way to go before they become relevant again.
Yes, they have nice players, but they are going to have to acquire some more talent on their roster or they will continue to have bad season after bad season.
Houston beat the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday by a score of 128-124. That was a nice win for them over a team that is better than they are.
The offense was really clicking in their last game, as you can see by the number of points they scored. Eric Gordon was the leading scorer with 31 points and 3 rebounds. Christian Wood also had 23 points and 11 rebounds.
The Kings have just underperformed this year. For pretty much the whole year, they have been disappointing and I do not see that changing much as we get deeper in the season.
Sacramento currently has a record of 17-27, which puts them in 11th place in the Western Conference. It is going to be hard for them to gain much ground, as they are going to need some other teams to start playing worse and Sacramento will have to play much better.
Listen, I am not saying this team should have some great record, but given the players they have, it should be better ten games below .500.
This club picked up a win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday by a score of 125-116. That was a nice win for them over a team that is better than they are.
De’Aron Fox led the team in scoring in their last game with 29 points and 4 rebounds. Harrison Barnes also had 23 points and 7 boards.

Houston Rockets vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Analysis:
Both of these teams are coming off of wins in which they beat teams that were better than them. I would expect them to come out sharp and confident in this game on Friday.
I know Sacramento is no great team, but this is a win they should be able to get. If you are even a halfway decent squad, there is no excuse to lose to the Rockets at home.
Wednesday was another example of the Kings being an unpredictable team, when they beat the Lakers. It seems like they show up on certain day and then are nowhere to be found on other days. Who knows what version of them we will get on Friday.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Rockets ATS
This play is mainly about a lack of confidence in the Kings. After they played a good game against the Lakers, I would not be surprised if they were a bit flat in this one.
For me, the 5 points are too high to lay with Sacramento. They might win the game, but I look for the Rockets to keep it close.
