NBA Basketball Betting – Kings Looking To Crown Blazers
The Sacramento Kings, (23-28 SU, 28-23 ATS, 25-22-4 O/U), have apparently given up on reaching the postseason this year after trading point guard Mike Bibby to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday for point guards Anthony Johnson and Tyronn Lue, 2006 first-round pick Shelden Williams, veteran forward Lorenzen Wright and a 2008 second-round pick, and possibly getting ready to trade enigmatic forward Ron Artest.
The Portland Trailblazers, (28-24 SU, 27-25 ATS, 20-31-1 O/U), unlike their western conference counterparts, have plenty to play for coming into their first post all-star break game as they look to make the postseason behind young stars Brandon Roy, (19.7 ppg) and LaMarcus Aldridge, (17.0 ppg, 7.4 rpg).
Each team however, comes into this matchup riding multiple-game losing streaks as the Kings have dropped three straight and Portland, four straight.
“We’re just not sharp right now – executing, offensively, defensively. We’re having breakdowns in key situations and we don’t have both units playing well”, coach Nate McMillan said.
To make matters worse, neither team has covered the spread very much recently in the Top Sportsbooks.com Sportsbook as Sacramento is a mediocre 5-5 against the spread and Portland an even worse, 1-9 against the spread, including four straight ATS losses.
Here is a look at some of tonight’s key trends, followed by my analysis and NBA Betting Free Picks:
The Kings are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog of 0.5-4.5.
The Trail Blazers are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games.
The Under is 4-0 in Kings last 4 road games.
The Under is 4-0 in Trail Blazers last 4 overall.
The Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Analysis: The Kings should be out of synch tonight while trying to incorporate their new players into their system while the Blazers are looking to get back to the winning ways they displayed earlier this season when they were once the hottest team in the league. Take the Blazers to win this game and cover the spread while the Kings feel the effects of losing Bibby and his solid three-point shooting.
