Two teams from opposing conference coming off different outcomes in their latest matchups are clashing, when the Philadelphia 76ers (43-25), looking to extend their current small winning streak, are hosting the Sacramento Kings (33-34), who on the other hand have won only once in their last 4 games and want to bounce back.

Philadelphia 76ers have a 43-25 record (32-36 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Pacers in the third place of the East. They have back-to-back wins and in their last game they won at home against the Cavaliers with a 106-99 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Joel Embiid with 27.2 ppg, adding a team high 13.6 boards per game. He is followed by Tobias Harris with 19.9 ppg and 8.1 boards per game.
Sacramento Kings have a 33-34 record (39-27-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. They have lost three of their last four matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Celtics with a 120-126 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 21.1 ppg, adding 5.2 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.5 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.3 dimes per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Kings won at home with a 115-108 score. Sixers have a 27-9 home record, while the Kings are 13-20 on the road. Sixers are better both offensively, scoring 114.8 ppg to Kings’ 113.7 and defensively, allowing 111.5 ppg to Kings’ 115. They also have a better field goal percentage (47.1% to 46.3%), while Kings have a better 3-point percentage (37.4% to 35.8%). Sixers are better both in boards grabbed (47.4 to 45.4) and in dimes made (27.1 to 25.6), while Kings are better in turnovers committed (13.3 to 15.2). Sixers are the absolute favorite and Vegas odds give them a -9.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for an easy home victory.
