Sacramento vs Cleveland: prediction for the NBA match
Sacramento got into a terrible run. Kings lost four matches in a row. For the most recent time they recorded a victory at the beginning of January, they managed to beat Miami at home (115:113). After that Alvin Gentry's men lost four matches. In the most recent ones they were beaten by Denver (111:121) and Portland (88:103).
Richaun Holmes won't play for the Kings in the upcoming match. It is also uncertain, whether Maurice Harkless will play. Other players will try to get the victory for the Californian team.
Cleveland starts to lose positions. In 2022 Bickerstaff's men won only two games, they beat Indiana (108:104) and Portland (114:101), losing all other matches.
In the previous match Cleveland suffered another defeat. This time Cavs failed to avoid defeat to Golden State (82:96). Bickerstaff's men were almost in their strongest squad, only Rubio and Sexton were unable to play.
Kings failed to win the first quarter in each of three most recent matches
In 4 out of 5 most recent away matches Cavs failed to beat that total
Sacramento is out of form now, but Kings are always strong at home. Not too long ago they beat Dallas and Miami at home. Cleveland is surely a favourite, but hosts should be able to put up a fight.
Our prediction - Handicap (+6) points for Sacramento
Sacramento was always a high-scoring team. After the arrival of Alvin Gentry Kings started to play aggressively. Their matches are usually high-scoring. We are expecting another great home performance from them.
Our second bet is on total over 215,5 points
