Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Boston Celtics vs Sacramento Kings NBA Regular Season Game on March 21, 2023
- Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, California
- When: Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 10:00 PM E.T.
Betting on the Boston Celtics
- Season record: 49-23.
Boston Celtics saw action on Saturday in a painful 117-118 loss to Utah Jazz on the road. Now they will try to get back to winning ways on the road, something they have been doing well throughout the campaign, winning 23 of the 37 games they have played so far. It is also worth noting that a victory as visitors would not be a surprise since we are talking about the second-best team in the Eastern Conference.
One of the factors they will have to show in this duel is their defensive area, which has a very good record, as they are positioned as the eighth team with the best defensive efficiency (112.3).
What’s more, one of the reasons why Boston is favored to win another title this year is that its offensive performance is much better than its defense, with an average of 117.6 points scored per game.
Betting on the Sacramento Kings
- Regular Season Record: 43-27.
Sacramento Kings saw activity on Monday against Utah Jazz, so they will have to play on consecutive days, and to make matters worse, they will have to do it against a strong opponent like Boston.
However, they will have the advantage of playing on their own stadium, a condition that has not been bad for them this season, winning 21 of the 35 games played so far. In fact, the local team has won five of the seven most recent meetings at the Golden 1 Center.
Surely Mike Brown’s intention is to exploit his best strength, an offense that has the best numbers in the NBA so far, maintaining an average of 121.1 points scored per game.
The Sacramento Kings have won 7 of the 12 games they have played on consecutive days. While these are positive numbers, it is clear that they have more than their fair share of trouble in matches in which they do not have some kind of rest.
Boston is a squad that has superlative numbers both on offense and defense, so they will not be an easy match for the locals, as they will not have so many facilities to exploit their offense.
In addition, Sacramento is the fourth-worst team on defense, so the odds seem to be stacked for the visitors to come away with the win on Tuesday.
Prediction: Boston Celtics Moneyline (BOS 120 – 115 SAC).
