Basketball betting on either team has not been profitable but Philly is headed towards the pro basketball betting playoffs. The Philadelphia 76ers had a basketball betting record of 32-31 straight up and 28-33-2 against the spread.
The Sixers have been something of an “under” team with a pro basketball betting mark of 26-33 under the total. As of late the 76ers have been one of the coldest teams on the basketball betting board. From February 11 through March 13 Philadelphia got the cash in just 3 out of 13 games with just 5 of those games going under the total.
Philadelphia’s basketball betting strength has been their 10th ranked defense while their offense ranked only 24th best in the league. Andre Iguodala has been a significant reason why the Sixers are likely to see the basketball betting post season. Iguodala led Philly in scoring with an average of 17.9 points per game and also led the Sixers in rebounds.
The great irony of Philadelphia’s season is that the man that was expected to lead them to the playoffs, Elton Brand, has been injured during the second half of the season, which has been the Sixers most productive stretch.
The Sacramento Kings have been in the “running” with the Washington Wizards for the “honor” of being the worst team in the NBA. Sacramento had a basketball betting record of 14-51 straight up and 31-34 against the spread.
The Kings have not been an effective pro basketball betting commodity at home with a mark of 13-20 against the spread. Sacramento’s basketball betting strength has been their 13th ranked offense. Their defense has been the reason for their lack of basketball betting success as it ranked 29th.
From February 11 through March 13 the Kings were actually a good basketball betting value as they got the cash in 8 out of 12 games. In the last basketball betting matchup between these two teams on November 3 the Sixers blew out the Kings 125-91 as 11.5-point chalks for an easy cover as the game went over the total of 199.
