Compared to last season, what we are getting in the NBA betting odds is a little bit anti-climactic. After all, this time last season, the Golden State Warriors were still in search of the single season record for wins, which they managed to accomplish. They are not going to break their own record this season, but they do still appear to be a team on a mission. They are absolutely tearing it up in the Western Conference, boasting a 4-game lead over the always consistent San Antonio Spurs. The fact that they are not chasing history this season may actually help them when the playoffs roll around, as they will not be in the same situation as they were last year, when they had players play through injury in the regular season in order to get that record. They looked out of gas in the NBA Finals, but that is not something we are likely to see this year. The Warriors will continue their great season on Wednesday night when they welcome in the Sacramento Kings.

Why bet on the Sacramento Kings
Non-one is getting too carried away in Sacramento just yet, but this is a team that is beginning to show signs of improvement after years in the cellar. Yes, the Kings are still sitting outside the playoff picture in the West, but they are a mere 2 games back of that final spot. Perhaps most astonishing of all is that they already have a win over Golden State this season, which is all the more astounding when you realize that they had lost their previous 13 meetings with the Dubs. The Kings are on a modest 3-game winning streak right now, including impressive wins over the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics. This will be their second game in consecutive nights, as they will face the LA Lakers on Valentine’s Day.
Why bet on the Golden State Warriors
There is a better than average chance that the Warriors are going to come into this game with a sizeable chip on their shoulder. Their last game was a pretty poor effort, as they were blasted 132-110 by the Denver Nuggets. The Warriors have not lost back to back games all season, and have in fact only dropped 9 games in total, so this is one that you would certainly expect them to win. They have won each of their last 6home games versus the Kings, and are boasting a 23-3 home record overall. The Warriors have also feasted on teams with a sub-.500 record this season, putting together a 29-4 record against that group.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
It was the Kings that came away with the surprise 109-106 OT win the last time these two teams hooked up, but I don’t expect them to repeat that performance here.
