Free NBA Pick: Sacramento Kings at Boston Celtics

Just don’t think that Boston (-7) has any business being a big favorite like this over anyone. This team is getting the benefit of the doubt from the oddsmakers and public because of name only, not what they have been doing on the court.

Yes, they beat the Heat last time out. Miami has pretty much been coasting through this regular season and does not give full effort every night, that’s a fact. And now that they lost Rajon Rondo for the season, this team is even worse. Unless they make a major move before the trade deadline, this team might struggle to make the playoffs, even in the weak east. As it is now, they only have four more wins than this struggling Kings team.

Sacramento isn’t a good team. But they played very well last time out in a win over Washington where they were facing a spread very similar to this one tonight. And, believe it or not, the Wizards are playing much better basketball than the Celtics right now. We think the confidence from that road win should carry over here.

The Kings always seem to play well in this matchup, and they have won the last two by 20+ points, and they have covered in five of the last six. We think they keep this one close and might even challenge for the straight up win.
