Sacramento Kings vs Washington Wizards: Betting Prediction
The Wizards have a 1-0 lead over the Kings this season. They will look to double the lead tonight as they host the game. However, their home record is just on the negative side at 16-17 which is not so reliable. The Kings are the best offensive team in the NBA, scoring 120.9 ppg compared to the Wizards, who are averaging only 112.7 ppg. Defensively, the Wizards are doing a lot better at 113.2 as opposed to 118.2 for the Kings. The team from Sacramento have an impressive 21-13 record on the road and will look to take their revenge on the Wizards. Expect them to cover the spread tonight.
