However, they will face an opponent they have faced twice so far in the 2022-2023 season, and both games have gone in Dallas’ favor, both at home and away. Can Sacramento break this losing streak against this opponent?

Predictions, Odds, and Betting Preview for the Dallas Mavericks vs Sacramento Kings NBA Regular Season Game on February 10, 2023
- Where: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento, California
- When: Friday, February 10, 2023, 10:00 PM ET
Betting on the Dallas Mavericks
- Regular season record: 29-26
The Dallas Mavericks come into this matchup after facing the Los Angeles Clippers in their last game, in which they had to play without their Wonder Boy, but in which Kyrie Irving made his debut after being traded from the Brooklyn Nets. Dončić is injured, but, according to reports, his absence will not be for a long time… So, it is not ruled out that he will play this Friday against Sacramento.
His presence will be important if they want to put up a fight on the other team’s field, since he is the main engine of the offensive department, which has not had top numbers so far this season, averaging 112.5 points per night.
The reason they are in sixth place in the Western Conference has been their good level of defense, with an average of 112 units. Although we’ll see now how they will perform with the changes coming after the signing of Irving.
Betting on the Sacramento Kings
- Regular season record: 30-23
The Sacramento Kings had the opportunity to face one of the worst teams in the league, the Houston Rockets, in back-to-back games, but now they will have to return home to face an opponent that will surely demand much more from them than the last one.
Their numbers at home are superb, as they have won 16 of the 27 matches played in this condition. A large part of these victories is due to the superlative offensive performance, which has been the best so far this campaign, with an average of 119.3 units per game.
Sacramento will have to face the eighth-best team in defense, a team that still does not know if it will have Luka Dončić available, but that will put all its trust in its new signing from the Nets.
Dallas does not have good numbers when it comes to playing away from home, and it seems too early for them to find a turnaround in team structuring to assume they can neutralize the franchise with more offensive power.
Therefore, it is expected that Sacramento will take advantage of its home advantage to win and reach a high score on the scoreboard.
