The 76ers are strong on offense this season, averaging 115.6 points per game while shooting 47.2 percent from the floor.

Redick averages 18.3 points per game this season. Joel Embiid is leading the team with 27.2 points and 13.4 rebounds while Ben Simmons is adding 16.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 8.1 assists per contest.
Kings strong at home
Sacramento ended a 6-game road trip on Wednesday, earning a 135-113 win at home over Atlanta. The Kings are now 26-25 on the season, 15-10 at home, 29-22 against the spread and 28-22-1 with the over.

NBA Betting Trends
The 76ers are 23-8 against the spread in their last 31 games against Pacific division opponents, but just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games.
The Kings have covered the spread in six straight home games, but just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 against winning teams.
These two have yet to meet this season, but I could see the Kings stealing this game. Philly is coming off an emotional win at Golden State and the 76ers have been inconsistent on the road as is. With Redick out, that is a big outside shooting presence that will not be available. Sacramento can score a lot of points at home and the Kings are 17-8 against the spread on their home floor. I will take my chances on Sacramento tonight.
