Kings vs Nets Predictions
23 February 2021
Kings vs Nets is an inter-Conference tilt between two teams that have quite the opposite trajectories in 2021. The Nets are one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. Their goal will be a Conference title and ultimately an NBA title. The Kings on the other hand are a below average team heading for another lotteryselection in the NBA Draft with very slim playoff hopes.
Kings vs Nets has been played nearly 100 times, with the split leaning slightly to the Sacramento Kings side. This series has been close to 50/50 historically. However, recent seasons paint an opposite picture to that of the long term history, as the Kings have had no success lately. The Brooklyn Nets won every matchup these teams played between the 2018 and 2020 seasons.

Sacramento Kings vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Pick
Tuesday Night at 7:30PM EST at the Barclays Center
Why bet the Nets?
✅ Kings skid: The Sacramento Kings are in a free fall at the moment. They have seven straight games, and it is not as if they are playing in nail biters. All seven losses in the current losing streak have come by eight points or more.
✅ Kings east coast difficulty: While the Kings are not a high end team overall nor a high end road team, it gets even worse when they travel East. They are just 1-3 in games at Eastern Conference opponents, inlcuding their last two losses by a combined 21 points.
✅ Nets streaking: While the Kings have been a punching bag of late, the Brooklyn Nets have had a nice surge. The Nets have won six straight games overall including wins at both of the high end Los Angeles teams in their last two games. The Nets are playing at a very high level at the moment.
✅ Nets owning the West: While the Sacramento Kings have struggled against the East, the Brooklyn Nets have had real success against the Western Conference this season. The Nets are 10-2 overall against Western Confernce teams, and have won eight straight games against Western Conference foes.
Betting Pick: Nets -7

Over/Under wagers on this Nets vs Kings contest would be betting over or under 242 combined points for the two teams.
There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.
Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the otherwhile only having to pick the winner of the game. A Money Line bet takes the point spread out of play in terms of the wager.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the point spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, and want the best Kings vs Nets Money Line Predictions, check above for a synopsis. If you feel good about a given team’s chances of winning the game but are unsure about the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Nets -7 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread bet, the Nets can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Kings can be wagered on to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -280 on the Nets and expect to get about +225 on the Kings.
With the all time series being played to a just a slight advantage on the Kings side history cannot be a determining factor on a money line wager. Particiularly when considering the Nets recent success. However, history is just one piece of the puzzle and all other factors need to be considered. The recent history siding with the Nets is a helpful indicator, but the current form this season is more important in terms of a betting selection.

Nets vs Kings Odds
The NBA carries very fluid odds in comparison to the other major sports in the United States. We often see a slow release of odds and against the spread, over/under and money line odds all fluctuate, often rapidly throughout a given day leading up to tipoff. The Brooklyn Nets vs Sacramento Kings regular season matchup won’t draw a massive betting market from the general public, so just a handful of large wagers could move the lines significantly in one direction or the other.
Live Streaming Kings vs Nets
We are currently without sports books in the United States that offer the streaming of NBA games. This will assuredly change in the future, but for now we are still required to turn to paid streaming services that might have the game you are looking.
