Philadelphia is somewhat of a surprising 5-point favorite as they begin a 4-game West Coast road trip on Tuesday night. The Sixers are one of the best home teams in the NBA (11-2), but are just 6-5 going away.
The Kings are also playing their best basketball of the season, winners of four straight. The last three have come against Boston, Denver, and the Clippers – all very high quality competition.
Philadelphia is playing pretty good right now too though, winners of 8 of their last 10 games. The team has lost at Detroit over that span, but has bounced back for wins in three straight road games.
Philly doesn’t have any back-to-backs on this road swing, which means barring injury we should see both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons in the lineup the entire time.
Embiid has especially been a force, going for at least 33 points in each of the last four games he’s played. The Kings can be vulnerable vs. the C position, as evidenced by Nikola Jokic going for 50/8/12 vs. Sacramento on Saturday.
The Sixers are in a good spot even in the trip out West as they’ve been off the last 2 nights since a 124-108 win over Brooklyn. That’s a great defensive effort, but the Nets were also without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
The Kings are underdogs yet again, but that’s no surprise as it’s been the case in each of their last three wins. Sacramento feels like they can compete in every game, and they’ve posted a top 12 scoring offense this season.
The Kings have scored at least 113 points in each of their last four wins, which has come even with Buddy Hield struggling a bit (16, 15, 5, 22 points). De’Aaron Fox has three 30+ point games over the last five.
Harrison Barnes has also been on a nice run recently, going for 24+ points in three of the last four games. Barnes only had four points in the win over the Clippers, but did grab 12 rebounds.
Of course another problem is the Kings defense, which is last in the league in efficiency. Philly ranks 8th in the league in scoring and has the 5th best shooting percentage which is why this betting total is 230.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
There’s very good value on the Kings here as they’ve covered in 8 straight games. Sacramento’s struggles vs. the C position lately are concerning, but they can bring 7-footer Hassan Whiteside off the bench to battle Embiid.
