Sacramento Kings at Philadelphia 76ers Preview & Picks

Sacramento are tipped to cover as a betting underdog on the road.

Philadelphia are without Joel Embiid, and this team has had issues went their star man has been absent.

  • Sacramento Kings are 6-2-0 ATS in their last 8 road games
  • Philadelphia 76ers are 2-7 without Joel Embiid this season
  • The Under has hit in 6 of Sacramento's last 7 road games
  • The Under has cashed in 4 of Philadelphia's last 5 games

Head To Head

  • Philadelphia 76ers lead the all-time series 182-136
  • Philadelphia 76ers won 129-127 when the two teams last met in January 2023

Sacramento Kings Form

Sacramento head to Philadelphia in solid form, having won six of their last eight games to improve to 23-14.

The Kings ended 2023 with back-to-back wins on the road, downing Atlanta 117-110 and Memphis 123-29.

They failed to make it three wins in a row when the returned home to lose 111-104 to Charlotte, but they bounced back immediately, beating Orlando in double overtime, 138-135.

Sacramento followed that up with a 135-130 victory over Toronto, only to then suffer a 133-100 blowout loss to New Orleans.

The Kings responded immediately though, heading out on the road to win 131-110 in Detroit and 123-98 in Charlotte.

Philadelphia 76ers Form

Philadelphia come into this game on their worst run of the season, having lost three straight to fall to 23-13.

The 76ers enjoyed a six-game win streak in the second half of December, but closed out 2023 with a 105-92 defeat to Chicago.

They got their revenge a couple of nights later when they returned home to ease past the Bulls, 110-97, but their joy was short-lived.

Philadelphia quickly returned to losing ways as they were beaten at home by New York, 128-92, and Utah, 120-109.

The 76ers then went back out on the road this week and saw their losing skid reach three games as they were beaten 139-132 in overtime in Atlanta.

Verdict

Joel Embiid is out for Philadelphia, so I have no interest in backing them in this one.

The 76ers have a terrible record without him this season, while Sacramento have been stacking up road covers recently.
