Basketball betting lines for Wednesday’s game between the teams in Houston will have the Rockets favored, which has not been a good NBA betting role for them. It was not all that long ago when the Sacramento Kings were a consistent favorite on the basketball betting lines but now Sacramento is a consistent NBA betting dog in more ways than one.
Sacramento had an overall record of just 11-40 straight up and 22-29 against the basketball betting lines. Believe it or not the Kings have had their best success against the basketball betting lines as a road team as they have covered 14 out of 26 games as a visitor
The Kings have gone just 17-23 against the basketball betting lines as an underdog. Sacramento still has a respectable offense that was ranked 13th overall in the league. Their defense, however, has been the problem and was ranked 29th.
While the Houston Rockets are a near certain playoff team they have not had success against the basketball betting lines this year. Houston had an overall NBA betting record of 31-20 straight up but was just 23-27-1 against the basketball betting lines. Houston has beaten the basketball betting lines in just 10 out of 24 home games this season.
The Rockets were just 17-21-1 against the basketball betting lines as a chalk for this year. Houston has not shown any signs of picking up the pace against the basketball betting lines as from January 19 through February 7 they got the cash in just four out of ten games.
Houston’s strength has been their 9th ranked defense while their offense has been subpar and ranked only 19th in the league. More was expected of Houston this year as Yao Ming did come back strong from injury and Ron Artest was acquired in the off season. The Rockets have simply been over-valued so far this year.
